Two posts in as many days? I’m on a roll! This post will explore the one feature the really sets Nordsaga apart from its Year Zero parents: Careers. In Forbidden Lands, characters choose a Profession, which is handled similarly to a Class in the most famous RPG of all. Nordsaga instead will provide a large number of Careers, with the intention that players move between them during the course of a campaign.
It’s been a while since my last post, but things have slowly been progressing behind the scenes. Most notably, the first 3 English chapters of the Forbidden Lands Alpha have arrived, and I’ve been making some changes to my rules to better align.
The Kickstarter for Forbidden Lands has recently posted an update discussing the steps to character creation for their upcoming game, so I thought this might be a good opportunity to do the same with Nordsaga, whilst also introducing the Attributes and Skill.
I’ve had this website for a while, with every intention of posting about Tabletop Roleplaying design, but I’ve never gotten around to using it. Now that the new Forbidden Lands Kickstarter is live and doing very well, I’ve been inspired to start this blog as I go through the design process of my roleplaying system, Nordsaga.
