Re: sneak in chain and plate

thanks. I too have found issues with the Cuirass' being just inferior when compared to a Hauberk. I have a dwarf in a chainmail hauberk plus large shield elf about to get chainmail cuirass two archers in leather cuirass about to upgrade to hauberks and thinking "why not the chain?" be good to give t...

sneak in chain and plate

there doesn't appear to be any penalty to this. is this intentional? there are penalties to all the other movement type skills like jump, swim, climb etc. as someone who has owned chainmail and worn plate before it seems a little odd if i'm honest! and I have two players sticking to leather, one pla...

Re: Outnumbered combat rules

I agree: the outnumbering bonus reflects the difficulty in trying to defend yourself while multiple people are trying to stab you. if that is not happening then no bonus for you. animal hunts typically you would surround the prey, move in on one side to stab while making noise on the other side, the...

Re: Item obviously stolen

surely the modifier is more about it being in stock? I mean you may really want water in the desert, but the trader is less likely to have it...if they do it will cost more. in the marsh though water is more common and also cheap. the modifiers would work the other way around if you are selling rath...

Re: How do you manage Tracking?

hunting could be used to cover this as noted. if you don't like it I would use the appropriate terrain lore with awareness granting a bonus, versus the targets terrain lore with awareness granting them a bonus. personally I use this in a lot of instances: player tracking NPC assassin through the woo...

Re: Missile combat modifiers

regarding large and tough monsters though hitting the dragon is easy, hitting the dragon in a spot liable to take injury may be harder though. so a "miss" might in fact be an arrow glancing off the bony ridge on the dragons head, no way of causing damage there. in fact I will be keeping the versus r...

Re: Questions on monster damage modifiers

doesn't stop the spell though, just makes it harder to cast. there is nothing in the rules about a spell failing if you take a hit, but having a missile weapon fired at you can cause you to fail due to the penalty. although hand to hand would penalise them more. I am having an issue with lightning b...

Re: Questions on monster damage modifiers

i think the 4 is an error from the books as stated. large fist and double damage would seem appropriate given how powerful they are supposed to be. dragons are very powerful and they are supposed to be, I think their breath weapons could be powered up a little bit more personally. if anything the is...

Re: Arhallogen and Hmurresh

thanks all for the ideas. I have watched Grimm and like the idea of a partial transformation. drbargle I have actually read those blog posts about 18 months ago when I first started looking into AFF2 as it happens! just couldn't remember how I found them and googling the gods names didn't help. the ...

Arhallogen and Hmurresh

part of the sandbox adventure I am writing has a powerful follower of Arhallogen (Spider god) as one of the powerful bad guys. I am considering putting in a group of weak cultists following Hmurresh (fly god) who are not supposed to try to stop the other person, but find out what they are doing and ...

Re: Outnumbered combat rules

i can see a situation, dependant on positioning, where 4 ogres (each with 2A) fight 4 adventurers in such a way that each ogre is capable of fighting two opponents each round. the heroes should probably avoid this position as it is giving an advantage to their opponents. even if you have 4 adventure...

Re: Whats everyone playing at them moment?

I will work out how to do google docs at some point. at the moment i'm struggling with two things: 1 maps, just the doing them in a way that can be uploaded 2 the fact that I write up roughly 75% but leave the rest "to be confirmed" in case odd things happen in character gen. if everyone decides to ...

Re: Whats everyone playing at them moment?

not playing RPG's right now, sadly. technically got an ongoing DND 4E rules system game playing in the WFRP world, but not played a session in over a year on that (player has new GF, she is interested in playing, I think DM is less keen on idea and for this reason game isn't happening now. could be ...

Re: Do any of you still play AFF 1E (Dungeoneer) ?

on the original question i wouldn't play the original again. there are just so many skills that were plain broken and as time went on the list grew in a way that was not adding to the game. strength, magic (just 1 point), awareness, excellent hearing and vision, dark vision are just a few of the ski...

Re: Confused about selecting special skills

To muddy things further, the pre-generated characters in the book only have 3-6 skills and there's only 8 skill slots on the character sheets. I'm slightly inclined to go with 9, but what does everyone else reckon? welcome! are you looking at the pre-gens on p19-21 or 35-45? because I think the for...
