Re: Sensational Atlas of Titan

Instead of saying where places are it describes how it feels when you are there. Short evocative sentences which capture of the essence of the place. It'd be a huge amount of work doing that for even the canon locations, but yeah ideally you'd have both that sort of thing and more factual info. Tra...

Re: What's Next on the Horizon for AFF2e?

Graham, is there much hope of a Salamonis book now? Back in 2016 you said "I am part way through writing the Salamonis book, but there may be an issue with the artist, who was very central indeed to the book, and so that is temporarily halted whilst i evaluate things." With that being so long ago I ...

Re: Where can I find a detailed map of Allansia/Titan?

One of the things I like about Titan is that there are no detailed “Canon” maps. It gives a lot more freedom for creating your own spaces without having to keep thinking about it fits into everything else. Agree the gaps on the Titan maps are useful. With it coming from the gamebooks you get small ...

Re: Learning Minor Magic spells

Apparently also in a document from Graham clarifying some points in AFF but which is no longer on the website. Actually you're right, it is in the errata doc: Page 56: Experience The experience cost to acquire a new cantrip is 10 XP. It doesn't revoke the bit about extra cantrips being learnt autom...

Re: Where can I find a detailed map of Allansia/Titan?

Had a look in my collection and I only have a low res of Holt's map too. Reading about it on Titannica it sounds like there was a lot of non-canon invention on it. Yeah Atlas of Titan is pretty good, although I've never got around to reading it all.

Re: Learning Minor Magic spells

- Additional ones are learned at a cost of 20 Experience Points for two cantraps (you must have a teacher or spell book to learn them from) 10 XP each has been suggested a few times, which is pretty much the same thing. - increasing Minor Magic does not give additional cantraps Yep number of cantri...

Re: Reaction table

I've got a suggestion for how to fit the Bargain special skill into this. Make the reaction roll using your table, this is the other party's initial reaction to the PCs. If the GM judges that result doesn't lead to an immediate attack then the PCs have a chance to talk to them, assuming they know th...

Re: Reaction table

The idea was to promt gm’s to not make creatures too 2D: Goblin = hostile= grrrr mindless attack, Elf = Friendly = automatic help. Yep the GM can just be a bit random on that but it is easier and clearer to have a roll for it, I can see the value. IMO the GM still needs to consider the intelligence...

Re: Reaction table

So you roll 2d6 for it? It seems like the modifiers for Friendly/Neutral/Unfriendly/Hostile need to be larger? As it is now Hostile creatures and NPCs are on average only going to get a result of "Bad". Or is it assumed you'd also be adding the "Hostile situation" -2 a lot of the time? I'm not sure ...

Re: Merry Christmas everyone!

On the seventh day of Christmas the Warlock sent to me...
Seven Serpents smirking,
Six Blackhearts gurning,
Five Gold-backed Mirrors,
Four roaring Felinaurs,
Three Wheelies wheeling,
Two Harpies flying,
and a Goldcrest Eagle in a Bomba Tree!

Couldn't resist taking the Seven Serpents...

Bonus points if the number matches how many there were when the creature/object was encountered in one of the gamebooks.
