Re: Does Magic-Minor count towards calculating magic points?

Any time something's as popular as Natural Mage it's probably over powerful, but I was surprised how many issues this one had when we pulled it apart. The Chaos Mage issue Stuart pointed out was one I hadn't thought of. But you never want automatic success in a system where the GM decides the size o...

Re: Does Magic-Minor count towards calculating magic points?

That was one of the reasons I suggested changing how Natural Mage worked in this thread.

Re: Minor Magic

It's hard to put a MP value on cantrips with the way they use none unless you fail the casting roll. But my opinion is 1 for 10XP or 3 for 20XP would both work fine. It perhaps comes down to whether you want to let them buy one at a time, by the stage they already have 18 they may prefer that.

Currently you learn 3 cantraps per level of minor Magic which means a maximum of 18.
Another way to do this would be make additional cantrips past the 18 cost 10 XP each. That's based on Wizardry spells being 20 XP per MP.

Re: Does Magic-Minor count towards calculating magic points?

I believe it should be played exactly as what you've quoted from page 67 says, that only MAGIC and the Magic-Wizardry special skill count towards MPs. So if they don't have Magic-Wizardry it's just MAGIC x 2. The first bit is only saying that you calculate MPs for a character who has either Magic-Mi...

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.
