Forbidden Lands is set in a cursed world filled with ruins, monsters, and treasures. Players explore a vast, untamed wilderness, uncovering lost tombs, fighting horrifying creatures, and building their own strongholds. It blends traditional fantasy elements with dark and gritty themes. While there’s a rich lore and background provided, GMs are encouraged to make the world their own, altering and adding as they see fit. Forbidden Lands uses the Year Zero Engine, which is the base for many games by Free League Publishing.
