Re: Helpful books and audiobooks for Maelstrom

Good links. I have those!

Some other literary inspirations were the Crowner John novels (a century or so late, but still very good) and the Cadfael books. There are quite a few in each line, and will provide plenty of medieval inspiration.

AFF Actual Play video

Well, we have started to put together an Actual Play campaign. It has taken a lot of work, but it is worth it I think. Part 1 of Session I is here:

It took 28 hours to upload, but it is less than an hour to watch. Please do let me know what you think!

Re: Island of Mishna

Do let me know what you think. My son did most of the writing, and I did layout/editing etc. I am really happy with it, but it was not in my publication plan for this year!

Does a potion of stamina count as 1 item in the equipment list?
I only count large items
Yep, weapons, books, etc. If you can put it in your trouser pocket, it only counts as an item if you have several of them (Director discretion)

Re: ITS HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The test print of the hardcopy has been ordered. It will likely take a week untul I have it, but once I do I will post some pictures.

Comfortably over 100 copies sold now, with as many again in shopping carts or wishlists. A very good start indeed!

Re: Second issue submissions

I will submit The Doors of Eryx, a Stellar Adventures mini-campaign with some underlying lovecraftian themes and some references to Slaves of the Abyss. I've been working on it for a while, but I need to improve the final write up. There are some alien monsters in it, so maybe some artist can have ...

Re: AFF Book Updates

These are not major changes, just some image optimisation, minor layout glitches, cover updates to change logos etc.

I have also updated the Crown & Dragon RPG files today.

AFF Book Updates

I am going to be working my way through the AFF books on DTRPG, updating minor layout issues, image contrast, cover glitches etc. Pdf updates will be instant, in that you will get an email when the new version is available. PoD however will be slower. Once I upload a new file, DTRPG send it to the p...
