NPC Manipulation

Is it reasonable to not allow a Manipulation attempt if the approach isn't reasonable? In most games, manipulation isn't mind control. If you don't know what levers will move an NPC (and you haven't tried to find out), is it reasonable just to rule "you can't do that, so no roll is required." For ex...

Nekhaka Scepter Drains When?

drains power from its wielder, who  thus suffers 1 point of damage to Agility and  Wits every Quarter Day she is awake. So if my player's have this thing, when does it do this damage. When they have it with them (on their person). Only when they use it? What if they put it on a horse and don't use ...

Re: Dealing w/ Lethality

In our experience so far it's very easy to get Broken in combat, and then it's just a random roll on the lethality table with about a 12% of a crippling permanent injury or death (on the slash table for example).

Dealing w/ Lethality

My group is new to games that are as lethal as Forbidden Lands - it's very easy to die in combat (you're broken and then roll badly on the table). What things can player's do to manage this lethally? 1. Avoid combat 2. Armor and Helment 3. Avoid combat 4. Ranged w/ Cover 5. Saving Actions for parry,...

Endurance

It seems like travelling all day (Hiking for 3 Quarters), even riding on horseback, should have some sort of endurance hit aside. Is there some rule or house rule I can invoke for this?

Gods of the Orcs

Who would they worship primarily, and how would they see them? I'm sure they'd have one of the existing gods but a special way of viewing them like everyone else.

Rolling for Lore

My understanding of the rules is that you should only roll when there is a chance of failure (no skill, time pressure) an interesting outcome for failure This is because Players get WP from being injured by pushing failed rolls (so rolling all the time like in a non-year-zero game would generate lot...

[Raven's Purge] Do Nothing the Best Option

Once Stanegist is in play isn't the best option for the players to do nothing and let one of the NPC's get it? If the Orcs get it, they'd fight the demon/demon allies - they certainly would be better than the rule of the Rust Brothers. Most of the bad guys are demon tainted so if they get the crown ...
