Re: New Talent: Arcane Bolts

Isn’t that a bit underpowered? Fire ball (1) and Force Bolt (2) both do d6 damage but with the dart you are only doing 1-2 damage. Well they're d6 once. This is throwing knife damage minus armour for as many times as you manage to hit with it in a day. So if it's a busy day you're getting way more ...

Re: New Talent: Arcane Bolts

Thanks for pointing this out, I'd missed it when I've looked back through the old threads. It's a great idea to allow wizards a magical way to stand back but be involved in fights between casting spells. Right now they can have a brace of throwing knives or a bow or something (even if they may not h...

Re: Hey Guys, How's everything?

Hey! Great to see you here again. Yeah you've picked a decent time to come back to AFF with the new books that are out or about to be.

Re: Combat Options

It looks like something weird was going on with the download for this and I'm not sure anyone who tried to get v1.1 actually got it. It wasn't much different but did fix that I'd forgotten Potions of Skill for the crit system and tweaked the crit effects a bit. Here's a new link. The file you get sh...

Re: Blackmoor Living World campaign with AFF2 being published!

This looks like an interesting project. I'm not that familiar with Blackmoor as a setting, we did do the DA module series back in the day but from what I remember just ran them in the world we were already using. I'm looking forward to reading how AFF's been tweaked to fit Blackmoor when I get a cha...

Re: A couple of questions

Just for something to compare to, old school B/X and BECMI D&D used (adjusted for its 10 sec round): 4 ft/s in combat 2 ft/s in combat if armoured 12 ft/s running and not in combat 6 ft/s running and not in combat if armoured You either moved or you attacked, although a web search showed a rule was ...

Re: A couple of questions

Did a bit more looking into this and seems an average person jogs at about 3.7m/s and sprinting speed is about twice that. But adventurers are usually carrying a lot more than your typical jogger. It might be good to have a table that gave different m/round depending on encumbrance, but keeping it s...

Re: A couple of questions

In my softcover AFF2 rulebook page 48 says 2m/round and so does the PDF, but my hardcover says 10m/round (yes I'm enough of an AFF tragic I have two copies of the rulebook, if the wife ever finds out I'm toast). Which makes sense depends how long an AFF round is and I'm not sure it says anywhere. I ...

Re: Bar room brawl

There's also Mayhem In The Mermaid in White Dwarf 96 using WFRP rules. Great for ideas to make it more interesting and co-authored by Jim Bambra who's one of my fav writers.

Re: Plain text rulesbooks for tablets and readers

One option would be to put the text into an EPUB file, a format specially for eReaders. From what I know the difference is a PDF has a fixed layout for each page but an EPUB doesn't, it's just the text and the eReader arranges it on screen how it likes based on the font size selected, screen size an...

Re: Plain text rulesbooks for tablets and readers

Going through the AFF PDFs and taking all the images out wouldn't be too much work but the problem will be the layout completely changes. So then you spend more time fixing layout glitches, stuff splitting across pages where it doesn't make sense and so on. A bit of work. Some RPG PDFs have each pag...

Re: A couple of questions

No problem, AFF2 does do some things a bit differently. Rolling in combat when you're not attacking is a bit unusual in RPGs but makes complete sense when you think about it. If you're experienced in combat then you should be harder to hit. Most games represent that with hit points that increase rap...

Re: A couple of questions

There is no mention of a backstab ability, beyond the +4 attacking from behind. In many games a thief gets double damage or higher with a successful backstab. Has anyone houseruled this? If the character succeeded in remaining hidden (opposed roll, page 55) I consider it an attack with surprise, wh...

Re: Print Copies/Pod

From what I've seen on DTRPG only Arion's non-AFF books have a POD option there. But if Graham makes more ordering direct from the printers, effectively POD without the middle man, then it may not make sense adding POD on DTRPG when he already has the web store. Although DTRPG is easier to find and ...
