Re: Damages on ghosts

Well since we are only after a coherent narrative explanation that helps players suspend disbelief in the context of the story, a plausible rationale might be that fire is elemental and as such transcends the physical worlds in some metaphysical sense.  Many systems of arcane power are tied to the e...

Re: Damages on ghosts

I'd be inclined to think a torch would be a pretty weak club, especially given the fact that fire would likely deteriorate its structural integrity.  But I've never been hit by one, so can't say for certain. ;)

Re: Q: What is Sturkas doing in The Hollows?

I'm getting ready to run this adventure, and had a similar question.  The background to the Hollows says the location was settled by "a number of Ailander free-thinkers".  In my reading of the canon material it seems to me a Rust Brother would not ordinarily be received in a community near or associ...

Re: Anyone started a character sheet for roll20?

Some feedback from my group on our initial use of the die-roller(s) - for what it is worth.  The consensus seems to be that they prefer the presentation of the dice on the default roller but the functionality of the Pro/API roller (particularly the Push feature).  They like the way the dice are clea...

Digitized Initiative and Combat Cards?

Has anyone made digital images of the initiative and combat cards for Forbidden Lands, for replicating the deck in VTTs like Roll20?  If so, where may they be found?

This was done by someone, apparently with permission, for the Coriolis Icon Deck.  Hoping that is the case here.

@sefnerr,
Prepping Roll20 for my upcoming campaign and started playing with this.  Well done, sir!  This is fantastic!  From both myself and my gaming group, thank you very much for doing this!

Mutual Opposed Roles Failures?

GM'd my first session with FL last night.  Had a blast!  Been a long time since I had that much fun at the gaming table. Had a situation come up in an opposed stealth role where both the PC (attacker) and the NPC (defender) failed their respective rolls.  The attacker/sneaker pushed his role and sti...

Re: What’s next for Coriolis?

To the writer/developers of Coriolis, I would love to see a supplement on more of the tech, vehicles and space ships, etc.  I met and spoke to Mattias at GenCon last month, and he mentioned that such a supplement might be on the roadmap.  Especially would love to see more artwork of the vehicles and...

Re: Sets of paper miniatures and battle mats for Coriolis

Very late to this discussion, but, as a new Coriolis GM looking for additional thematic art, in addition to artwork from the Coriolis materials, I've found some images for Dune that seem evocative of Coriolis. Might check out Pinterest, for examples.   Also can find a bunch of pre-made battle mats t...
