Re: NPCs attacking NPCs – to roll or not to roll?

I've done both. Much depending of the NPC and his/her role in the adventure.

I was going to say, if the NPC needs to survive for later on, then just act it out, otherwise roll and see what happens.

Re: Keeping Watch during Sleep

Ah see, I interpretted 'day' in the literal sense there, not in the 2 QD=a Work Day. But, assuming you are correct, wouldn't that mean that in the summer you never have a roll at night, since you only spend a QD asleep? Personally, I would maybe change the rate that you roll based on how hazardous ...

Re: Reputation

As you say, it really wouldn’t fit the Ravenlands, so I haven’t really thought of it. I suppose a baron might simply begin with a bonus point to reputation. Maybe another point for higher titles? Generally the system is more about deeds done than one’s courtly contacts. But you could make something...

Hi, I was wondering how people handled Reputation in the game? Has anyone developed a system assigning Reputation scores based on titles, such as Lords, Barons, Dukes, Kings etc? It might not be that relevant in the Ravenlands, but I was wondering what Reputation scores nobles or other positions of ...

Re: Interest Check: Starting Game on Rpol.net

Hey silverfox, I would certainly be interested in joining an online campaign, but I confess that I have never actually played Forbidden lands before or used rpol. I have experience with other RPGs and the Forbidden Lands rulebooks, but have never been able to be part of a match, so I'd be eager to ...

Re: Replacing the Warrior's Other Talent

Just throwing this in here as an option. It gives it a little more utility outside of combat (you could order someone to forage or set up camp or whatever), you benefit your entire team (where as warrior perks traditionally only benefit the warrior), and it's a simple straight forward mechanic. My ...

Interest Check: Starting Game on Rpol.net

Hi, I'm currently GMing a game on Rpol.net, but it's going very slowly. I am thinking about starting up another game, but I wanted to see if there would be interest from this community before setting anything up. For those unfamiliar, Rpol.net is a forum based site with a built in die roller and map...

Re: What are your Year Zero plans?

I've been working on a homebrew fantasy setting that I had intended to use D&D 5e rules for. After having FbL for a little while now, I think I'm going to try and adapt the setting to these rules and see how things go.

Re: Replacing the Warrior's Other Talent

Let me know what you think of this: Path of the Commander Skilled in the art of war, a good commander is able to read the battlefield and lend their expertise where it is most needed.
