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*

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. :)

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.

We are aiming for a solid end of May publication date.
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...

Yup. I'm having the same problem: it says the file is corrupted and can't be opened.

Re: Any plan for à third édition ?

If a given giant has only 9 STA, then, to make him more durable, give him significant damage reduction (=armour, like thick, leathery skin, plus many layers of heavy, shaggy hides), and/or the ability to regenerate STA points after a number of combat rounds (due to some weird natural ability or a ma...

Re: A few suggestions for rules changes

Languages Instead of having points for languages and needing 4 points to be fluent, maybe the languages skill can be more of a “decipher” skill where the hero can decipher written and spoken languages that they don’t know. One doesn't "decipher" or "decrypt" an unknown language. If a PC knows well ...

Re: Any plan for à third édition ?

The rules, being remarkably simple, have as their strength the property of being open to interpretation and alteration -- if the GM sees fit. That is in no way a flaw, but an asset. Instead of a "3E", a better idea would be to have a "houserule contest" where the winning concepts are chosen by the P...
