Forbidden Lands RPG Reviewed on The Daily Dope for December 27th, 2018

Tonight I dive in and review Forbidden Lands from Free League Publishing and Modiphius Entertainment and explain why the boxed set is my favorite RPG release of 2018. The physical boxed set is available now and you can also purchase the PDF through DriveThruRPG.

Summary
As someone who digs OSR vibes in newer RPGs I love the mix of modern and Old School in Forbidden Lands. The game harkens back to the days of Game Masters and players working together to craft adventures as opposed to having everything spoon fed to them. There's plenty to get excited about in Forbidden Lands from the mainly excellent line art, to the easily grasped core mechanics, to the 21st Century take on OSR. There's something for just about every sort of roleplayer although those who are married to their d20s or only delve into linear and set piece adventuring might want to look elsewhere.
