Re: How about reducing the number of magical styles?

possibly the way to make it work would be slightly more complicated remove the "must have magic-wizardry of X to pursue this route" which some of them have. this way the golem builder isn't also a high level wizard, he might only be good at making golems or whatever, and a rubbish spell caster. it a...

Re: Tweaks and clarifications to the new AFF rulebook

lowering base skill to 4 and then maxing a special skill to 2 means you need to roll a 6 or less to be successful. meaning you lose the "start competent and improve from there" which i love about AFF. back to D&D style "rubbish when you start" level grinding and fighting giant rats to make some XP u...

Re: How about reducing the number of magical styles?

i like the idea, i have felt the sheer number of magical disciplines is somewhat excessive for a player. then again, the background of Titan has mega high level magic users, which would certainly be able to "max out" more than one type. except the ones which make you lose your previous spells (necro...

Re: Tweaks and clarifications to the new AFF rulebook

The trainer thing is key for delaying advancement. the way i see it is 1 point is "yeah i've used a sword and practiced with it" 2 is "i use this for a living, my life literally depends on it" so 3 might be "best in the city or country (depending)" and the higher levels? much harder. actually with S...

Re: Any plan for à third édition ?

effectively modular additions that can be added if desired, but if removed don't change the base game.

i now have to check skinnyorc's combat options document, it's a hard life :lol:

Re: Any plan for à third édition ?

Skinnyorc: i like your suggestion. my concern with "any roll high enough" becoming a critical is that having a high CS is already being rewarded by simply winning combat rounds and would totally undervalue the all out attack option available to playaers and monsters alike. reducing low Skill monster...

Re: WOFTM session finaly. Further Analysis.

there are a few places they can rest in the dungeon, i think in section 3 they can rest in the house where the hell hound and master live, once they are dealt with. i remind players directly what their characters can do (such as priest can burn a Luck point to use a blessing again) but not informati...

Re: Any plan for à third édition ?

rather than quoting multiple people in one post i am going to reply to the last 3 here so higher WSS giving less penalties when using special combat options could work, but i think people would just always go all out attack after having WSS 2 because they'd just get a +1 bonus to damage. the idea of...

Re: The Shattered Amulet adventure

i was thinking more the 3rd or 4th? cannot remember which one. the first was just warriors from warrior clan the second was magic and assassins from clan Eshin i think 3rd was Clan Moulder so mutants and masters: rat ogres, giant rats and regular rat men: more differentiation here was possible but i...

using priests for other things

So i saw a thread the other day on here, but cannot find now to add comments :lol: So decided to start a new thread. I love priests and priestly magic in AFF2, i think it is handled very well, how the powers work and all that stuff. the Templar Talent is also a great way to represent a knightly orde...

Re: Any plan for à third édition ?

Skinny Orc: i am combining multiple ideas in my comment. so players, under your variation, will get more critical hits, makes sense from a statistics perspective. currently in game the players TAKE more critical hits and are hindered more by them. their enemies tend to die so don't suffer the -1 Ski...

Re: Any plan for à third édition ?

i like that a lot, it means you can play a "lock picking specialist" if desired. or, more to the point, you can hire a specialist at a skill and not also have hired, due to games mechanics, a highly skilled combatant if required. like a scout (talents in wood lore and plains lore say) but who has lo...

Re: Any plan for à third édition ?

i like that. actually i often, instead of using a versus roll, use the monsters skill as a negative modifier. so instead of both rolling versus for a Sneak vs Awareness, i just give the player a -2 penalty because the goblin scout has Awareness 2 that also removes a low skill opponent losing almost ...

Re: Tweaks and clarifications to the new AFF rulebook

the amount of work in converting the old black and white pictures into equivalent colour ones would be huge!

also

got to be honest

i prefer the B&W pictures!
People will definitely moan about them being changed to colour pictures :lol:
