Re: Any plan for à third édition ?

Alternative crit effects are my favourite part. Makes combat a bit more exciting. And scary.

And in the case of Rolemaster's epic critical tables, downright mental. :twisted:

effectively modular additions that can be added if desired, but if removed don't change the base game.
Yeah, a modular approach is a great way to look at it. :mrgreen:

Re: Any plan for à third édition ?

short version: I like Skinnyorc's proposal as it solves both issues (i think) Best thing to do is run a bunch of test combats covering various situations in order to try out the ideas that have been proposed. Keep what works for your game and style of play. I think what I would like to see in any r...

Re: Any plan for à third édition ?

So what I suggest is any time someone rolls what they need for a crit (my doc has extended crit ranges for high SKILL creatures too) it only does the double damage and SKILL loss if they have the higher combat total that round. A double six automatically wins the round but doesn't guarantee them th...

Re: Lets get started

Pitch 1: I have an article with ideas about how to use the "Unknown Land" in the southwest corner of the Titan map to expand the FF world. Pitch 2: I am in the process of writing an article about how to add new weapons to AFF, using traditional Chinese weapons as examples for adventures set in the I...

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

I'm also quite happy with retaining the black and white pictures - I think they are more in keeping with the whole atmosphere of FF. It's a shame updating OotP is a bit problematic; but honestly I think we can survive with it as it is. Looking up the extra details for monsters in another book is onl...

Re: Any plan for à third édition ?

Yes, that's exactly what I was thinking, Graham. I couldn't summon up specific examples, but yours are spot on for the point I was feebly trying to make. :mrgreen:

Perhaps there is a Titan equivalent of The Art of War that is compulsory reading for a particular band of orcs... :lol:

Re: Any plan for à third édition ?

You could rebalance AS from the monster side by increasing the typical SKILL for all of them by at least 3 points. It's a much bigger change in terms of text needing to be adjusted though. Also personally I like that the creatures in the Pit books are in line with the ones from the gamebooks. I als...

Re: Tweaks and clarifications to the new AFF rulebook

Rolling opposed rolls when using ranged weapons is quite counterintuitive as an arrow doesn't help you to both attack and defend yourself from an arrow in the same way that a sword helps you both attacking and defending from a sword. New players usually understand better rolling vs. a specific targ...

Re: AFF should be more popular

All in all, great news! The future is looking bright. :mrgreen:

Shame about the cross-licence promotion and cooperation situation. But hopefully as AFF continues to grow, the other licensees will become more keen to jump on board.
