Re: Tweaks and clarifications to the new AFF rulebook

I know I posted a lot of questions because I was unsure how to resolve them but as someone else pointed out, the more rules we put in the less this becomes like AFF. My feeling now, after GMing so much, is that the rules are there to help me resolve situations, so most calls are up to me. The only t...

Re: WOFTM session finaly. Further Analysis.

Were the players used to other games where healing was more plentiful? It sounds like if they'd been more wary of combat from the beginning things wouldn't have been so dire by the end. It's definitely something that takes getting used to. On the food situation, I can't check my copy of the adventu...

WOFTM session finaly. Further Analysis.

So, the adventure lasted 2 more sessions. Upon getting to the dungeon the players took the exact route they needed to get to the Warlock. When they go to the river they decided to turn back and search the rest of the 2nd part of the dungeon. They discovered the magical fountain which was a relief to...

Re: Lying FF intro's(semi-rant)

You make a valid point about spoilers, Dawndeath, and I thought the same thing before about the writing, I'm not so sure now. I'll give you the specifics. In WOFTM, the narrating introduction specifically states that you need "2" keys to open the Warlocks Treasure. It's possible that this is an erro...

Lying FF intro's(semi-rant)

Alright, something unexpected came up in my discussion with you all about my WOFTM game. I went back to check the WOFTM gamebook and learned there is a deliberate lie about the mission objective. So I'm going to explain why this is a big deal to me. You guys might notice that I mention Chasms of Mal...

Re: WOFTM session. Fun stuff an Analysis.

Well... a lotof FF gamebooks require high stats to have a chance of succeeding! :P Ok, I decided to go back and check my facts :) . So, minimum of risk doesn't mean "no combat" you're right. So far, after a quick check, there are at least 6 combat encounters that you must have in WOFTM I believe. I...

Re: Would you show NPC stats?

Not sure. It's his first time playing AFF. He's been casting "Zap" a lot to deal with high threat enemies. But he's always near death and desperately looking for ways to recover Stamina.

Re: mRPG and AFF

I'm currently using tabletop simulator. It requires quite a bit of your own work though. I've not heard of that one - I'll have to have a look. How do you find it works for AFF? I like it but you'll need to prep quite a bit to get going initially. It's a giant table and you can import various thing...

Re: WOFTM session. Fun stuff an Analysis.

Most Fighting Fantasy books were meant to be playable and beaten with either minimal or no combat. WOFTM is supposed to be one of those books. Where did you find this statement? It doesn't match my experience with FF gamebooks and, in general, it would be strange calling "Fighting Fantasy" a series...

Re: WOFTM. Use OOTP stats or WOFTM stats?

You're the Director - you can do whatever you think is best for your game. :mrgreen: Personally, I usually go with the stats given in the adventure. Remember, the stats given in the Pit books are for 'typical' examples of each monster type. Maybe the ogre in WoFTM is slightly atypical. Actually in ...
