    Low Fantasy Gaming for MoreCore

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

    Big shout out to Stephen J. Grodzicki from Pickpocket Press who has made it possible to share not only this Ruleset Extension but also the complete First Edition of Low Fantasy Gaming in Fantasy Grounds format.


    Rules Light
    LFG is rules light, 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.

    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.

    What LFG is Not
    This book does not describe a new low magic fictional setting. It is a generic ruleset for use with published low magic worlds (some examples appear at page 177) or a world of your own creation. With some tweaking, LFG could handle most fantasy settings, but the system assumes low fantasy.


    To use Low Fantasy Gaming on Fantasy Grounds you will need the following:

    Download the latest version of MoreCore. You will need at least version 1.52 (https://www.fantasygrounds.com/forum...reCore-Ruleset)
    Download the Low Fantasy Gaming extension (updated 20200121) from this post.
    Download the Players Handbook (updated 20200121) and the Game Masters Guide from this post.

    If you are new to Fantasy Grounds -
    place the MoreCore.pak in the /rulesets directory
    place the MCLowFantasyGaming.ext in the /extensions directory
    place the LFG-PHB.mod and LFG-GMG.mod in the /modules directory
    Create a new campaign and choose the MoreCore ruleset and enable the MoreCore - Low Fantasy Gaming extension
    Go to Library -> Modules and Activate/Load the Players Handbook and the Game Masters Guide

    The following video shows how to create a character using these resources.

    Ive played quite a few RPGs at local Cons that were written (and published) by the GM.
    They were all quite fun - though none are challenging 5E just yet.
    Ill have to try and recall some other game names.

    And thank goodness you didnt find any Kiwi games...
