I feel like High Crusade is a good bet for a crossover AFF/SA game.

Re: First impressions....

Happy accident with the books I was ordering. Apparently my fat fingers entered the wrong payment details on the site, which is why the sale was blocked, and the stuff was still in stock, it was just put aside for me when I put it in the cart. So I got an email this morning telling me what happened ...

Re: First impressions....

WooHoo! So, now I've got to play it :) Everyone had fun and wants to play again, which is good. They got as far as the Cyclops, which was mauling the hell out of them until it was ZAPped into oblivion by Rhana after a few rounds preparation. The Sorcerer wiffed once or twice casting quickly and from...

Re: Other Settings

I'm considering using it for the early D&D Known World stuff (the world that later became Mystara). It also looks good for Conan and Birthright. Or Skyrim, if you weren't too concerned about a direct one to one mapping of stuff and happy with broad strokes, like I am. It does cover a broad range of ...

Re: Tabletop or Virtual Tabletop?

I'm running my first session Tuesday, face to face.
I hope to run more.
I won't be playing via internet, I only play tabletop RPGs face to face.

Re: First impressions....

I'm having trouble putting into words how impressed I am with it. It fixes the issues I had with dungeoneer, looks simple, comprehensive and flexible. It not only looks like a great FF rpg, but a great general purpose light Fantasy RPG. I image it will replace Labyrinth Lord\BECMI\Swords and Wizardr...

It's awesome.
Nostalgia overload. It looks great.
And Warlock includes Vignor Firestorm and Haldar Eriksson as pre-gens :D

Can't wait till the kids are in bed so I can have a proper look :D

Re: Flags and Heraldry

The lack of in canon heraldry gives your players the opportunity to substitute their real life heraldry for their characters.
Mine, for example, would be a black Eagle. That's pretty cool.
Although, when I was a teenager, I did know a guy whose heraldry was the much less imposing......3 hedgehogs...

Re: First impressions....

I should have guessed from the name. Dun Laoghaire Rathdown is crawling with O'Kamikazes. I grew up in Dublin, but I guess I'm a culchie now. I've lived in Waterford for the past 15 years. Any idea what Irish cons are like recently? I haven't been to one in years (busy with Kids and College), and I ...

Re: Flags and Heraldry

Wait, your location says you are in Allansia right now.
Just take a look around for castles and towers, they have examples flying from them.

Re: First impressions....

No, I ordered it from Games Lore in the UK. I'm next door in Ireland. I didn't think of checking here before I ordered. So you'd recommend ordering straight from Arion in future?

I hasn't been too long I suppose, I'm just being impatient.

Re: First impressions....

Ahw thats rough, when did you order them ? (I'm running Firetop at the moment and loving it, I'm sure you will too ) Sunday night. Was dispatched Monday afternoon, I was sure it would arrive today. The post is normally quick. Normally when I buy stuff from the UK, I use a service that uses a UK add...

First impressions....

aff2.jpg I really want to see what it's like, compare to 1st edition, and run Warlock for my birthday. And each day it resolutely refuses to arrive. Someone tell me what I'll love to keep me warm through the long night, as I sit, twitching, with my fingers curled about imaginary books that haven't ...
