Re: WP Farming

There are 2 parts to that. 1) Non-combat skills and talents are valuable. The players will learn all about how valuable they are. 2) Journey rolls don't actually fail when you don't pass them. The players STILL Journey almost every time. They just ALSO get inconveniences. It's part of the reason pe...

Re: Backpack (and sack) and encumbrance

Yeah, say you find a bunch of small valuable things, where are you going to carry them without a container?

EDIT: Forbidden Lands (as do many YZE games) have a principle that if it's not on your sheet, you don't have it and that includes means of conveying items.

Re: Financing Strongholds

You also don’t need to keep people hired all the time. It’s the Forbidden Lands gig economy, not union work.

Re: Bitter Reach - skis and snowshoes

Great question. I wasn’t entirely sure about this. I had a ski-maker in one village who wanted good iron tools and he was willing to trade the skis for those, my players ended up giving up a timber axe and a hakapik for a couple pair.

Re: Rules for drunkenness and alcoholism?

The player can get xp for suffering from their dark secret. If they are getting blackout drunk at inopportune times, that’s xp for him and a complication for the game. If not they are missing out and that’s on them.

Re: WP Farming

Certainly the weakest part of Forbidden Lands is how risk/reward can break down with pushing.The incentives push players toward pushing at nearly every opportunity and it comes down to the GM to try and control this a little. This is often because restoring attributes is seen as "free" so attribute ...

Re: So what's the next Kickstarter going to be?

As opposed to world expansions after the cardinal directions, I’d think perhaps we’ll see more deep dives and adventure sites for existing world areas.

Re: Religion and how you use it

The Aslene volcano god and Dwarven idea of building up to the heavens I find the most evocative religions in the setting. Worshipping a giant fire spewing mountain feels right and is also just awesome. Really looking forward to learning more about this. The dwarf crusade to the stars is just this re...

Re: The Bitter Reach - Locations

My players are most likely heading to Farseer's Tower this Saturday. I have it in the Elven Ruin location directly northwest of the Midden. They're currently in the village to the north/northeast of there which I've named Wolfpine. This will be their first location from the book that isn't Northfall...
