Can you learn talents from other professions? I like the idea, but it can blur the boundaries between professions.
Maybe profesion talents can only be learnt from a teacher or are expensive.
What do you think?
I find this is strange, because the Forbidden lands are a brand new world, in which freedom is the first thing you get. No laws, no complex society. You just are on your own, and try to survive.Page 40: “You cannot learn profession talents for other professions than your own”
Ooops! I meant Wits + Charisma. I agree it's a bit complex, but it allows for player influence and use of their skills which I prefer.. The easiest way is to just do a straight roll.@Aldorf
That interesting ! Maybe I find the rule a bit complex (I like simple things XD), or else, I didn't understood well how you run it...
But I don't understand : WIT+INT...? Wits + Insight?
What is INT for? ^^
I agreeWell the character development options are very very free in Forbidden Lands. You can make a bowslinging sorcerer or a plate-wearing druid no problem, but it's something you'll have to plan for when making your character. The most important - and as I've come to find, most character-defining - talents are all general talents. […]
It seems every time this discussion crops up it's because someone's players want to start slinging spells. Well if they wanted to do that why didn't they just roll up some sorcerers instead? They can still be really good at hunting or shooting or cooking or whatever floats their boat even if they're naturally inclined to magic. It seems to me, rather than this being an issue with the way the game is designed, it's a misunderstanding from the player's side. This game is very welcoming to pretty much any build.
Wanna be a dual axe-wielding barbarian with a penchant for nature? Make a druid and invest in Axe Fighter and Melee.
Don't go overriding the basic system with houserules before you understand the system well enough to have at least an idea of what problems your tampering might cause.
