Re: Converting Exile to AFF

This is the computer game? It looks a lot like the Ultima games, which I played a few of back in the day. Of course the look isn't what's important when converting to a pen and paper RPG.

Re: Does anyone use AFF for other settings?

While most of the published scenarios seem to be fight-heavy (though I don't know that many), AFF2s skill system is really very robust, and there's a lot you can do in terms of rules without having to fight (it's different, in that regard, from most versions of D&D, where you really miss out on mos...

Re: Newbee question

Is it correct that no matter how many attacks are made, each combatant only rolls one combat total per round, and that this total is also used as defense value against attacks by multiple opponents? So if you roll well, you defend well against all attackers, including the ones shooting at you? I pl...

Re: Questions about priestly spell Ward

Yep that works fine. Quarter of a metre radius per Devotion is probably easier to work with than adding up cm though. Good idea to say that at minimum it covers the caster. If both duration and area are set by Devotion then range can be 0 with it centred on the casters location. I'm still not sure i...

Re: Spamming time!

I'm impressed by the wide range of the spammers products. Much better than previous spammers we've seen here.

Re: New AFF rulebook, upgrade or replacement?

Ah yeah, he's done this other years too. Last time I picked up all the Atlantis and Jonathan Hicks scenario PDFs. There's also a mention of AFF freebies there and who doesn't like freebies?

Here's the link for anyone interested:

Re: New AFF rulebook, upgrade or replacement?

Yeah if I were you I might wait for the new one for the print book, but it could be ages so I'd go ahead on the PDF first. Even if they don't change the text at all (Graham please do make some changes ;) the completely new layout and presentation still sounds like a sizeable project. If you get the ...

Re: What Would Conan Do? blog

Only read the first one about Luck so far, but the ideas about how to get Luck points back are interesting. He's right you don't want players hassling the GM to award them Luck for things they did. You could maybe boil down his suggestions to decide on a system for giving back Luck and then stick to...

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

To be fair, Graham has got us a lot of new AFF lately, including Return to the Pit which was eagerly awaited for a long time. On top of that there's the new revision of the rulebook he announced he's working on. Even if that's just prettying it up it's a major job (and I'm hoping for a little more i...

Re: Fly and Levitate

Yeah exactly, and anything else with cliffs or walls. Thinking about it more I'd ditch Levitate too and add a 2 MP Climb spell that would allow the specialist wizard to keep up with the rest of the party on fairly easy climbs. But what you don't want is there's that sort of obstacle which you need o...

Fly and Levitate

Something else I'd add to the list of low fantasy game-breakers is magical flying. The AFF2 mechanics and wide selection of special skills are well suited to low fantasy and investigation adventures, it just needs a few tweaks to the spells. I agree about magical flying. It can nerf tons of traps a...

Re: New Talent: Martial Artist

The download link at Chimerae wasn't working for me earlier so I've only just got my hands on this. Nice work converting it to AFF2! The language barrier is a bit of a difficulty but I think the system's probably more complicated than I'd want for Titan martial arts. I looked at Way of the Tiger and...

Re: Questions about priestly spell Ward

If it was permanent I can see some fringe cult who's made it their mission to ward the entire planet bit by bit. :) I'd assume there's a ritual with a similar effect that's used on temples, which is permanent and covers the entire sanctified area. It's an interesting idea Ward could also apply to th...
