Re: New stat checks.

personally I like the idea of combined stat checks. especially Stamina would reflect well that your diminished health if having an impact, could also deter players that happily wander around with 4 Stamina out of possible 12 relying on their good Skill, Dodge or Armour to keep them safe. I often us...

Re: New stat checks.

I read my post again and realise it came across a bit too hard. For that I apologise, posting and doing housework are not a good combination: focus on one thing at a time or get a familiar! My point was just we need to keep in mind that a lot changed between the original FF books and AFF. The first...

Re: Downgrading SKILL

I like it. It sort of goes hand in hand with the ideas I posted on my "New skill checks" post. You are, in a way, bringing SKILL back to it's original purpose, combat ability. I might use something like this in my games. I want to address your overpowered comment though. Even if a character is overp...

Youtube vid with inspiration for Archery ideas or characters.

I thought this was an interesting video since I've been discussing archery lately.

Re: New stat checks.

The FF books had their rules changing depending on what the particular writer wanted to achieve so you’ll find all sorts of stuff in there and little harmonisation. What’s wrong with the AFF rules as they are? There are some small changes which have been adopted by the community over time but the c...

New stat checks.

I've been going through a bunch of the books lately. I've encountered some interesting Stat checks. STAMINA & LUCK Check: Roll 2 dice. You must roll under both your STAMINA and LUCK.(Not added together) Example uses: When on a boat and fighting the current in an attempt to make it safely through wit...

Re: Elf Abilities.

The list I gave above was only based on Phantom's of Fear. If I added what I got from Titan the list would be a bit longer and somewhat conflicting. I have a problem I'm trying to figure out and deal with right now that goes like this... Elves are pretty much human + . They have better eyesight, bet...

Re: Elf Abilities.

I wouldn’t fix the nimbleness as part of the outnumbering Rules but instead give a discretionary bonus on the part of the Director when the general grace, agility and balance of an elf would help them. I don't dislike the concept but my opinion is it doesn't fit as a Talent based on the ones in the...

Re: Elf Abilities.

I wouldn’t fix the nimbleness as part of the outnumbering Rules but instead give a discretionary bonus on the part of the Director when the general grace, agility and balance of an elf would help them. It’s also a strong narrative element which can be used to change how the character behaves and as...

Re: Wages and Services

The standard cost of things in Titan is inconsistent. What the game books charge for items and such is different from what is charged in the book Titan . I've been planning to look through the books to see if there is some kind of standardized list I could make. What I've seen happen in a few settin...

Re: A Rough Guide to the Pit

This just came in today. I only had a chance to take a quick look at it and it looks awesome so far. I love the Art on the inside. I'm impressed with Andrews work so far. I picked up Titan Herbal a while back and only looked at it a month ago. I was really happy that he had divided the flora/fauna l...

Re: Other races reactions to humans.

I certainly think that the other races of Good don't trust humans, and with good cause. Not only are they the creation of Logaan, compared to Dwarfs and Elves they are expansionist, greedy (yes I know Dwarfs are, but human are greedy for anything and everything), short-lived and reckless, etc. I th...

Re: Making Dominions work

You might consider adding a description of what the dominion's primary resources are. The old D&D Companion Set had this which I've adapted a bit for AFF2. First, select or randomly determine (using 2d6) the number of resources in the dominion. For dominions larger than 1 24-mile map hex, this may ...

Elf Abilities.

Ok, while scouring the AFF books lately I went through Phantoms of Fear and made a list of what the book lets an elf do. For anyone who is interested, here is what an Affen Forest Elf can do and some of their traits. -Are Vegetarian. -Rarely leaves beyond a half days journey from his home. -Is confi...
