Welcome to the quirky and bizarre world of Far Away Land. This is a world where noknil clones are part of a hive mind, where clown plants hurl terrible jokes while stabbing their victims, 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 Tome of Awesome contains everything from the Far Away Land Core Rules, Creatures Volume I, Companion Rules, and Tales of Awesome under a single cover. It features a bunch of extra artwork. The Tome of Awesome is available as both pdf and hardback. The physical book is hardback, full color (with about 200 pieces of artwork), 5.5x8.5 inches, and over 300 pages.

Here is what you will find in the Tome of Awesome...

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.

The Far Away Land RPG Creatures Vol. I contains over 70 creatures, monsters, and races. It is an essential part of any campaign as it not only features a boatload of ready made encounters, but also the rules to create your own monsters from scratch.

The Far Away Land RPG Companion Rules are set of optional rules that feature worldbuilding games such as The Gods, Historians, and Architects of Far Away Land. It also has rules for Mass Combat, Training Montages, and running kingdoms.

The Far Away Land RPG Tales of Awesome is a book of setting material for Far Away Land. It features a history of Far Away Land, a pantheon of gods and goddess, various lands and locations in Far Away Land and in the cosmos, heroes and villains, languages, religions and cults, and hex maps of important FAL locations.

There are no blank page errors I am aware of. That was a printer issue that, as far as I know, was resolved months ago.

A new version of the Far Away Land: Tome of Awesome has been uploaded dealing with size issues. The new version comes in around 20MB (as opposed to over 100MB). Hope this helps.

I bought the .pdf but it is weighing in at OVER 100 MB. For an Adobe file this creates problems displaying it with an Adobe reader on my Android tablet. As a comparison, Shadowrun core rules .pdf at over 500 pages is 50 MB.
Would it be possible for you to look that over and offer a lighter version, playing with the graphics resolution or something?

Hey Gary. This is a print problem and has happened before (as can be seen in some other comments on this page). I will contact drivethru and inform them on the problem. I would ask that you do the same. They have informed me before that in this case (printing error) you should get a replacement book at no charge. Please let me know what goes on from here. We will work to make this right. Sorry for any inconvenience.

I got a copy of the ToA in the KS, but not a coupon to it on DTRPG. Given that its been updated, is it possible to get an updated version or that coupon?

Sure thing. That goes for all KS backers as well. In fact, I may send out a mass complementary mail for everyone (KS everyone).

I woiuld like to order Premium Hard Cover as well, but want the PDF now & don't want to pay twice (not that I'm opposed to supporting indie gaming). Is there a work around for this or coupon?

I have contacted DTRPG to see what the issue is. This may be a print issue as I am sure the file for the print version is good. I will let you know as soon as I find out.

Hey, Christopher J. I have contacted them and they believe it to be a print issue (as opposed to the actual file). I think it is this as well as there have been no other complaints about this book missing pages. They should get in touch with you to work this out. If not, please let me know and we will make things right.

Any chance that you will release the book in Premium Full Colour? The book looks great in Standard Full Colour and it would cost more, but I would buy it to get the art with colour even more vibrant.

I helped Kickstart this and I love it. Everyone should be these and play them with your friends and kids and who ever you can. I will be buying them again as soon as I can and can't wait to share them with everyone.

Format
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.
