Can you play Forbidden Lands on Roll20?

Thu 15 Jul 2021, 15:35

Hi there,
I'm quite interested by the idea of Forbidden Lands - it looks great. However, it seems to use cards. I use Roll20 for RPG. Is there a mechanism / hack to get around not having cards and still play FL games online? I guess there is but interested if it works well or hobbles the experience.
Thanks,

I just made a custom card deck for initiative, no biggie :). Works well enough.

I had the initiative deck made too. I also made two decks, one for player and one for me as a GM to handle the advanced combat combat deck. All of them works fine and stayed with us for our three year long campaign. On the other hand, you could just roll 1D10 or 1D20 for initiative and call it a day. The advanced combat rules are optional so if you don't want to use them, don't. Either way you do the, I'm sure your game will be awesome! Good luck!

I'm nearly ready to release a sheet for roll20. It includes a roll template based roller as well as an option to use an API roller(pro subscribers) if you wish. If you're a roll20 member, please leave feedback. Cheersmyloweslife

I have just started looking at Roll20, and i must say that I'm a big fan of your Forbidden Lands character sheets, michael!

I will try to contribute myself by releasing some macro's, etc, later. Just going to plan a session first and see if everything works as expected.

I also found a bug on the mount gear tool tip:
It is listed as @{selected|repeating_mount_gear_$0_mount_gear_name}, but it should be @{selected|repeating_mount_$0_mount_gear_name}

Added a link to the macros I use. It was initially on reddit, but here is an updated version, pointing to this forum instead:
