WHAT IS LOW FANTASY GAMING?

Low Fantasy Gaming (“LFG”) is a tabletop role-playing game built for sword & sorcery adventures in low magic worlds.

Rules Light

LFG is rules light (184 pages), with a heavy emphasis on Games Master (“GM”) rulings. It’s a hybrid of old school and modern game design, based on the 1d20 Open Game Licence.

Fast & Engaging Combat

Combat is designed to be fast and engaging, with minimal waiting between turns. Creativity is encouraged via martial exploits and magic.

Dangerous & Gritty  

Battle is genuinely dangerous and every skirmish takes a toll. The threat of serious injury or death is never far away.

A “Realistic” World

LFG worlds tend to mimic our own classical or medieval periods. Humans are the default player race. Magic and fantastic monsters exist, but are very rare. The Midlands Low Magic Sandbox Setting supplement is an example (also on DTRPG).

Dark & Dangerous Magic

Magic is not only rare, it is dark and inherently dangerous. Sorcery is a power not meant for mortals, and adventurers engage with it at their peril.

Riches & Glory

LFG is about exploring the unknown; delving into the lost places of the world to unearth new mysteries. Player characters are not epic heroes charged with saving the world; they are bold adventurers seeking riches and glory.

Open World

LFG is made for short, episodic adventures in an open world. Mechanics and random tables support GM improvisation, empowering the referee to handle any situation or side trek.

Site Support

Further LFG material is available at the Low Fantasy Gaming website for free download, including reviews, GM screen inserts, illustrated character sheets, pregens, Midlands region map, 6 city maps and more. A template character sheet is available on the Roll20 site for easy online play.

Print Copy

At more than 12,000 PDF downloads and growing, the LFG ruleset is also available via Lulu in Softcover, Spiral Bound and Hardcover formats (softcover & spiral at cost).

Regarding the Hit Points column in class Advancement tables, what function do the numbers 1-9 in that column serve?

To use the Barbarian as an example, that is meant to indicate the PC gets 1d6+6 hp (+ con bonus) per level up to 9th level. Then at 10-12th level, the PC gets +4 hp only (ie not 1d6+6 or con bonus, just +4). Older dnd versions used a similar method. Hope that makes sense.

Yes, that makes it a lot clearer than the rules do.

Admittedly I have only read up to the Classes chapter, but so far I have found the book to be written in a nice and concise way - except for the repetition of the numbers 1-9 in the HP column of the Class Advancement tables and the second paragraph under the subtitle “Hit Points” on page 12.

Reading just that paragraph I was left with the understanding that I will roll for HP for levels 1 through 12 AND always add whatever bonus is mentioned in the Class Advancement table, while only adding Con Mod between levels 1 through 9. It reads like there will be cases where the roll, Con bonus and an extra bonus from the table are in effect at the same time. There is no wording there to suggest the rolling stops at a specific level.

And since the text basically says “there will be numbers in that table you add to your HP roll”, you can probably see why the presence of the numbers 1-9 can be confusing. They seem like something...See more

Thanks Janne yes that's all fair enough. When I wrote it I had in mind folks who knew the old advancement systems, and readers would simply carry their understanding across. A poor assumption obviously! If I do a second edition I will certainly make it clearer as you suggest.

I love this. I also purchased the sandbox setting.
I would love a printer friendly version of this one, without the background.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
