Re: Crown & Dragon RPG

So unless anyone drops out in the next hour and a half, we have hit the stretch goal. If you back it before the end, you get the book cheaper than the final release price as well as getting the two novels in digital form!

Re: Tweaks and clarifications to the new AFF rulebook

Firstly it means that you may well have to complete 2-3 adventures before you can buy an advance as SS's are generally the cheapest advance. This slows down the "feel" of progression a faiw amount. With 50 XP you could learn 2 new special skills (20 XP each), improve a special skill to 2 (40 XP), l...

Re: Tweaks and clarifications to the new AFF rulebook

There are two issues with just making Special Skills 20x for xp: Firstly it means that you may well have to complete 2-3 adventures before you can buy an advance as SS's are generally the cheapest advance. This slows down the "feel" of progression a faiw amount. The other is that SKILL itself would ...

Re: Lets get started

Probably a good idea for people to start pitching articles for Issue 1, ideally along the lines of the sample articles, but there is obviously some flexibility. Once we know what articles are on offer, Sam can start working out what can go in!

Re: Any plan for à third édition ?

as for low skill high special skill NPC's just don't use the same rules for creating NPC's as PC's. This does mean that Bob the barbarian is likely to be ripped off the Gheed the unscrupulous merchant, but isn't that likely anyway? I was thinking of adding a new Talent called "Specialist", meaning ...

Certainly makes me think that there is a small supplement in those ideas!

Re: Any plan for à third édition ?

One option is to take either the WFRP 2e approach or the Adventures in Middle Earth option. The former has templates that can be added to a standard monster. So the "Brute" Template might look like: Brute +2 STA +1 on Damage rolls Champion might look like: Champion +1 SKILL +3 STA Improved Armour (1...

Re: Tweaks and clarifications to the new AFF rulebook

Maybe OotP can be published in a single book together with the Corebook... so many options may be available to deal with the issue in a tidier way. They got combined in the AFF Deluxe book but as the text of OotP wasn't able to be changed it didn't fix what you're talking about. However it gets pub...

Re: Crown & Dragon RPG

The Crown & Dragon RPG returns again. One defeat does not mean the end of the war, and the Dragon-Browns return to the breach once more. Enough of the army metaphors, and on to business. I have relaunched the Kickstarter here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2036759092/crown-and-dragon-rpg-for-...

Do you have a list of tweaks? I'm sure you could source a few from the forum? Shall we make a thread on tweaks?
That would be useful!

I am starting to make some notes on what needs doing....

Re: AFF should be more popular

So... the plans. Some of you may already know these if you were at FFF3... Firstly is the Fanzine. You all know this anyway, but we now have formal approval to go ahead with that. I am hoping to get a few of these into games shops too to try and push things along. Secondly, in conjunction with an ex...

Re: Out of the pit 3

Is there a softcover version of the POD planned? (I prefer the drivethru softcovers.) It was available, but there was a slight error with the cover. I resubmitted the files nearly four weeks ago, and due to an error with the printers, they only approved them yesterday. I have ordered a test copy, a...

Lets get started

So at FFF3 on saturday I had a chance to speak to Steve about the Fanzine and we have the go ahead. There was one proviso however. We have been asked to avoid Allansia. So no articles, adventures etc set there. Khul or the Old World are fine though, as are generic articles. I therefore propose that ...
