Forbidden Lands: The Spire of Quetzel Now Available

April 12, 2019

Wind dies. Pale grass grows in spirals. Lichen forms blurred iridescent sigils on cracked stone. Black trees curl their trunks and crook their branches as if bowing. The Spire is driven through the skin of the world like a pin through curling paper.
With every step toward the tower, it writhes and warps like a hallucination. It seems infinitely tall, like something in a dream. There is one silver door, marked with a pavonated eye in iridescent blue and green.

This volume collects four adventure sites for the Forbidden Lands RPG, written by some of the best writers in the field today. Within these pages you will encounter a dreaming Demon-Queen, a prison of strange beasts who call themselves a family, a coven of witches who don’t get along, and the weird graveyard of the last thunder lizard to walk this land. The Forbidden Lands are more dangerous than ever – only the most foolhardy and resilient adventurers will live to tell the tales of these adventures. This 72-page hardback book contains:

  • The Spire of Quetzel by Patrick Stuart (Veins of the Earth)
  • The Bright Vault by Chris McDowall (Into the Odd)
  • Hexenwald by Ben Milton (Maze Rats)
  • Graveyard of Thunder by Karl Stjernberg (Rad-Hack)
  • Art by Alvaro Tapia.

March 26, 2019

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce The Knotted Tails (6.0 MB), a new scenario to accompany the Mask of the Oni adventure for the Legend of the Five Rings Roleplaying Game, is now available for download!

What foul creature hunts for nezumi blood in the Shadowlands?

As your band of samurai travels through the deadly, twisting landscape of the Shadowlands, they encounter a patrol of the strange, rat-like beings known as nezumi. The scouts describe a monster who hunts their tribe and they plead with you for help. Now, you must make a difficult decision—do you aid the unfortunate creatures, or destroy the scouts and continue on your journey toward Shiro Hiruma?

The Knotted Tails offers an additional story for Mask of the Oni, the adventure book based on the rich worldbuilding material found in the Shadowlands sourcebook. The Mask of the Oni adventure pits you against the dangers of the Shadowlands on a mission to the ruins of the Hiruma family’s once-proud castle. As you follow the trail of a deadly master of blood magic, you face incredible dangers, both in the twisted land and in your own mind. Now in the heart of Fu Leng’s domain, this new tale offers you a brief reprieve from the otherworldly horrors and gives you the chance to help some fellow unfortunate souls while you continue your journey to Shiro Hiruma.
