FATAL: "From Another Time Another Land"
(formerly known as
"Fantasy Adventure To Adult Lechery") is a tabletop Role-Playing Game
published by Fatal Games in 2004. It's since become a major
example of Snark Bait
, due in no small part to its content and rules, which feature:
- Extremely complicated and math-intensive mechanics and charts governing character stats, in-game actions, gaining experience and leveling, and combat. These can lead to questionable, if not outright self-contradictory, results.
- Many game mechanics relating to body parts and orifices which are better left un-elaborated.
- Themes of rape-fantasy, racism, GLBT hatred and misogyny; lots of Toilet Humor; and generalized perversity. Even the cover art for the rulebook is NSFW. The original name is another blatant hint at its content.
- Gratuitous spelling and grammar errors.
The game is best known because of a savage MST-styled review
of the rulebook by Darren MacLennan and Jason Sartin on RPGnet. This led to a rebuttal
by the creator and one of his contributors.
We're not linking the rulebook due to its content; it can readily be found if you really want to go looking
. The game even has an official theme song
