Re: Rest and/or Sleep while Exploring

Not sure exactly what your question is, if any.
Are you asking if the adventures can stay at an Adventure Site to Rest/Sleep?
If so, you can use the ‘Bare Ground’ rule (page 156), where the adventures don’t Make Camp and just roll Survival to see if they can sleep for a quarter day.

Re: What's your opinion on Forbidden Lands?

Almost all of your issues seem universal to just about any fantasy RPG. • One player dominating the group decisions? That’s not really a game mechanic issue. • Rapid advancement of PCs? The GM should just limit giving out XP. • Magic can be too powerful, but spells are too limited in use? That’s the...

Re: Orc and Goblin PCs... oh my!

If this is they way they like to play, let them. The Forbidden Lands seem to be a setting with plenty of stuff to do for psychopaths. If they’re careful to avoid witnesses and not leave any evidence implicating them, then yeah, they could just be serial killer cannibals. Any ideas on how to play ou...

Re: Orc and Goblin PCs... oh my!

Why did they not ask the hunter to hunt for food and water? Murder-hobos. Good luck, have fun! They did, but he failed. The PCs hired him to forage, lead the way, and for extra protection in case of encounters. The hunter ended up getting them lost for a day and only found 1 extra food/water overal...

Re: Orc and Goblin PCs... oh my!

I’ll have to see how they behave themselves in town. They had been acting civil up to this point, and maybe it’s just being alone in the wilderness without any witnesses that incentivized to act like savage cannibal psychopaths.
But, yeah, this game can end real soon if they keep this up.

Re: Rogue Talents

Everybody is an “old school” thief in the Forbidden Lands... they all have the Move, Stealth, and Sleight of Hand skills.

Orc and Goblin PCs... oh my!

So, I’m running a game in the Forbidden Lands with two other players, who chose to play as an Orc Fighter and a Goblin Rogue. They hire a Human Hunter to guide them through the wilderness, which was smart because both PCs had very low Survival skills. But, they also didn’t buy extra provisions. Bad ...

Re: Counterfactual history?

I posted in another thread what if during the first Gulf War (1991), the USA and UK decide to fully invade Iraq and get quagmires (similar to what happened in the second Gulf War in 2003-2012). But, in this case, the Soviets would take revenge for Afghanistan. This pins down a large part NATO’s army...
