Remember what it felt like to open a book when you were a kid and be mesmerized by what was inside? This was our goal in creating the Far Away Land OSR RPG. Far Away Land is weird. Far Away Land is colorful and quirky and super imaginative. Did we mention its really fun too?

Far Away Land (FAL) OSR is a re-imagining of the Far Away Land RPG – through the lens of OSR-style games and mechanics. This project was inspired by Swords and Wizardry Light, a stripped-down, rules-lite version of Swords and Wizardry that uses only d20s and d6s. FAL was originally inspired by simple, old school gaming mechanics that place emphasis on characters, story, and adventures rather than heavy rules. This version of FAL uses familiar mechanics (6 stats, HP, AC, etc.) mashed into the Far Away Land setting. It maintains the tradition of a rules-lite game while using a more well-known system that is compatible with the world’s most famous rpg and many of its clones. Essentially, FAL OSR is a complete circle, back to what initially inspired the original game, set in the gonzo world of Far Away Land. So, while the rules have changed to be compatible with other systems, the unique world of FAL is the same.

Far Away Land OSR is a great introduction to rpgs. The book contains simple rules for combat, vehicle combat, naval combat, mass combat, character creation, magic, tons of mini games (like level 0 character grinders and deadly games), like 99 monsters, location descriptions and maps, crazy powers, there is even an adventure included. It’s jam packed with awesomeness.

The book is full color, about 130 pages, 8.5x11 inches.

Wondering if the creators have considered any other systems. A hack or SS&SS would be great. Dungeon World mechanics seem perfect for this setting.

Maybe it is stupid question but... I can't find in a book how to level up characters. There is no such thing as Experience? (I can't find anything like it in index also). I have looked in Adventure Awesome, but there is no mention about it. Concept of level in not described also, but in character creation chapter (Core rulebook) there are table for each class with level rewards. Can you guide me with this one?

No XP. GMs just level PCs up based on their own determinations. Generally after every other adventure or so...

Is it told somwhere in the book? I still can't find it. There must be at least some mention of it in rules.

This is the OSR version of the game. It is (as of now) a standalone set of core rules for Far Away Land using OSR compatible mechanics (heavily based on Swords and Wizardry Continual Light). However, we have made conversion rules available on our website to make easy transitions between the systems.

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.
