Re: Stellar Adventures @ Airecon 2020

I've found the cheat sheet and quick reference tables in these threads to be pretty useful though they may be out of date. Might be good inspiration for the sorts of things that would be useful on the back of a screen, though? http://www.arion-games.com/bb/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=2399&p=10943&hilit=che...

Re: Fly and Levitate

Someone mentioned a climb spell... I had a magical item in an adventure that lets you walk on any solid surface at any angle - cliffs, ceilings, etc. Though you had to always have contact with the surface, or you'd fall, so running wasn't really possible. Might work as a good 'climbing' spell? Also ...

Re: My homebrew - Weird Spells

I don't want to post up the full spell list my current bad guys are using just yet in case my players spot it at some point, but I still think it's fun to come up with new ideas. :P Death spell is one that I'd not thought to combine, though it could be interesting especially with what you mention ab...

Re: My homebrew - Weird Spells

The idea for this, for me at least, did originally spring from trying to give a particular villain group some unique spells using the rules for +1 to +6 personalisation. Since they were all part of the same group they all had the spells personalised in the same way. And at that point it was a short ...

Re: My homebrew - Weird Spells

Mechanically, no difference to a standard Fog spell as it's just a minor illusion added to it... unless AFF has added some morale rules I've forgotten about. Though I would have any characters act more afraid of it were I the Director (or really getting into my role as a Hero). Any heroes (or their ...

My homebrew - Weird Spells

I’d like to share a bit more of the mix-up of 1st, 2nd and homebrew I've been running. Hopefully it’ll be useful/interesting to other folks, plus I'd be interested to hear any feedback and suggestions. I don't own every 2E rulebook yet, plus I've not been on the forum super long, so if this has alr...

Re: what do you give Luck for?

Something a little outside the box is that you could reward luck for good roleplaying. If it's something you want to encourage. If the players act in a way that fits their character, or really fits with the world, maybe you can give them a LUCK point or two. Same for other good behaviour like not ex...

Re: 'Whee(lies)!'

Love Wheelies! Though when I imagine metal armour for them I can't help but think of those foil-wrapped chocolate coins. :P

My Homebrew - Getting Lucky

Sorry for the pun title. Also not sorry. I've been using a mix-up of 1st, 2nd and homebrew in a campaign I've been running. I thought sharing might be useful/interesting to other folks, plus I'd be interested to hear any feedback and suggestions. I don't own every 2E rulebook yet, plus I've not bee...

Re: New AFF rulebook, upgrade or replacement?

Thanks for the advice! I'll hold off on a replacement physical copy for now.

The Arion's 40% off Great Christmas Sale over at DriveThruRPG just started though, it seems, so I'm sorted for pdfs! :D

New AFF rulebook, upgrade or replacement?

There's a thread discussing updates & clarifications to the AFF core rulebook that are underway, though I didn't find any announcement about it in searching the forum where I could find out more about it. I was planning to buy the PDF version of the rulebook soon (since I've lost my hardcopy... some...
