Re: Out of the pit 3

Late last night I bought Return to the Pit, Travels in Arion and the Stellar Adventures weapons/equipment book from DriveThruRPG. After having skimmed through them before the sandman caught up with me, they look great. 8) I await for their availability as POD, and then I will snatch up some hardcopi...

Re: Solo Guide

I'm fully on board with this concept. Sounds very appealing.

Crown of Kings Appendix?

When perusing my AFF2e folder this morning I noticed a curious thing: when I purchased the Crown of Kings PDF, it must have come with another file labelled "CrownofKingsAppendix.pdf (1 kb)". However, it cannot be opened (defective? corrupted?). Is this something that has been updated and corrected, ...

Re: The Tables in the Herbal

I've gotten the impression, since buying the books and PDFs, that the authors weren't aware of probabilities (whether linear or bell-curves) and other tables seem to reflect that. E.g. the main rulebook's Oops Table and the Fumble Table is another bell-curve centred on "Hero slips and is off balance...

The Tables in the Herbal

Was it intentional that the 3D6 tables in the Herbal should be bell-curves? E.g. in the table "HILLS and MOUNTAINS (Allansia)", because on 3D6 (the average being 10.5) the results "Spear-Root/Lemongrass" and "Softwood/Abundance Nut" will occur far more frequently than any of the other results. Conve...

Re: Out of the pit 3

It is a wonderful book, the creature write ups go way past just describing them and are full of inspiration for plot hooks and the world of Titan. Well worth the wait and going straight to the top of my reading list. I guess the next logical move will be to eventually merge OotP, BtP and Pit-3 into...

Re: AFF and More AFF in the Bundle of Holding

The moment these titles appear on Drivethru I'll snatch them up faster than you can say Yaztromo!

Does the Weapons and Armour Catalogue have game-statistical infos (e.g. range, damage, etc.) or is it more fluff/chrome text?

Re: DICE!

My dice-OCD dictates only that I use precision dice for Backgammon; I don't care too much about true randomness in RPGing. *big shrug*

Re: Out of the pit 3

Will this be made POD-available on Drivethru at some point? It will, both as a hardcover and softcover Outstanding. 8) I guess the next logical move will be to eventually merge OotP, BtP and Pit-3 into an Monster Omnibus edition. :) You could go Classical and call it De Monstris Omnibus Voraginis ....

Re: Downgrading SKILL

Has anyone split SKILL into MENTAL SKILL and PHYSICAL SKILL? Surely that would not make this ruleset too granular.

Both start at 4.
Maximum of 2 pool-points may be added to each.
Thus either one would start no higher than 6.

I'd have to crunch numbers to see it that is viable.

Since the end of May is past, is there any word about a new release date?

Re: Downgrading SKILL

One thing I do in AFF is to have half-increment skills: My Hero won't go from skill--1 to skill--2, but to skill--1.5. The first time that skill is used in the session it is at 1 and the second time at 2, in alternation. Thus, the full progression would be 1, 1.5, 2, 2.5, 3, 3.5, 4 ---- much more gr...
