Welcome to the quirky and bizarre world of Far Away Land. This is a world where telepathic agnuns ride grizzle bear familiars into battle, where giant floating robot heads called soracan shoot lazers and speak dubstep while trying to eradicate flesh creatures, where a cataclysmic event of the past has sewn together the various realms of creation to a forge a nexus point on a fantasy world known as Far Away Land.

Far Away Land is a rules-lite fantasy role-playing game that uses six-sided dice. It mixes fantasy, sci-fi, and apocalyptic elements to create an immersive and rich world full of history and adventure. It is easy to learn and a perfect game for new (young) gamers as well as veteran gamers. All of the Far Away Land books contain colorful artwork, humor, and rules that allow gamers and GMs to pick and choose the level of crunch they want in their game.

The Far Away Land RPG Core Rules is the book you need to get started in the world of Far Away Land. The Core Rules contain rules for PC and NPC creation, magic, combat, gear and equipment, crafting, abilities, spells and more. With this book you can begin your adventures in the world of FAL. The physical book is full color, 5.5x8.5inches, and 70 pages.

I was going to ask if you will offer a bundle of several books in one download for a savings price.
But I see now that the Tome of Awesome is that kind of bundle, in one Adobe file or book.

A new version of the Core Rules has been uploaded to doubly make sure everything is in order. We have received a new print version and everything looks good!

Please check the descriptions on all your products. The web-site link mentioned here does not work, and some supplements have names surrounded by markup code if you read the descriptions. For example, in the Creatures book description:

Hey everyone. The Far Away Land RPG books are available! PDFs are $8 and paperbacks + pdf are $15 - or you can get the <st1:place><st1:placename>Far Away</st1:placename> <st1:placetype>Land</st1:placetype></st1:place>:

I think what it is, is that the link above actually directs me to which gives a fail message. But if I click another link I get to your actual working page. You may want to adjust that. Thanks.

I purchased the print copy of this game (along with the PDF of course!), and while it arrived in a timely fashion, I seem to have received a printing without the section describing and detailing Magic Items, meaning 12 pages of rules are missing from the physical book. Can this be fixed?

Hey, Christopher. I'm going to look into this and see what I can do. I haven't had any other folks say this. I'll get to the bottom of it and make it right... (Sorry for the delay in response...)

Thanks very much! You may want to talk to the people at DriveThruRPG directly, I've been in touch with them, sent them photos of my book, and they said they'd send a replacement, but I've had no word since that time.
What I think happened, due to differences in font and formatting, is that an older version of the PDF was used to print my physical copy.
And apart from the printing issue, I have to say I love the game!

I sent them an email and asked if they could send my the file for the print book orlook it over and see. They looked it over and said everything was there. They also said that if it is a misprint, you can contact customer service at - regardless, let me know what happens. If you can't get the fixed copy, let me know and we will work it out. Glad you like the game!

Original electronic
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.
