Re: GMs companion

I don't know if you were dreaming or not, but think some kind of rules compilation/toolkit would be a great idea - something like (but much smaller than) the Fudge 20th Anniversary big book. So a series of articles - not linked, not meant to be used together, but for GMs to pick and choose (and impr...

Re: Crown of Kings - feeling a need to rewrite the Kharé quest..

I made it "that Abraxus lived just the other side of the bridge over the stinking, roiling mass of Chaos that is the Jibaji River (an answer to ‘why do we have to go through Khare to cross the river’)" as I wrote on my blog. Sorry, forgot to say; I had it that the Jibaji River was corrupted by Chao...

Re:

Khare is simply going to be the major city in my campaign You should consider playering the Inkle games based on the Sorcery! books - obviously with a focus on the 2nd one. While I bought into the post-collapse, part-ruined vibe I got from the AFF CoK book (with ruined and barren areas *within* the...

Re: Crown of Kings - feeling a need to rewrite the Kharé quest..

Re: Khare - in my game I made the first part of the mission a journey to Khare, to visit Abraxus, a Sightmaster Astrologer (a literal Seer) and agent of the Analand who is tasked with keeping watch on the Baklands. So they had to go to the centre of Khare to receive the latest intelligence on the do...

Re: Crown Of Kings

Nearly six years ago I ran the Crown of Kings for my then group of players. you can read play reports and reflections starting here: https://drbargle.blogspot.com/2013/07/the-great-shamutanti-swindle.html I have a 'Crown of Kings' label that I think that I applied to all relevant (and some maybe not...

Re: Sources of insperation

Anyone in northern England with kids should use them as an excuse to visit The Forbidden Corner - which always reminds me of the weird, fairytale, jumble of encounters in the early FF books.

Re: Titan TV...

I don't personally think of Titan as exclusively Asian-flavoured. Perhaps I'm reading things the wrong way. No, but I think that Eastern-Western 'fusion' is underplayed in a lot of Fighting Fantasy stuff. I mean, you have a couple of East Asian flavoured societies, but they are a bit isolated. More...

Re: Outnumbered combat rules

Therefore I only count opponents who actually need to roll an Attack Strength for the purposes of outnumbering. Thanks Gloccus (a long wait for a reply, I know). I think this is exactly the right solution. Again, it reinforces the fact that AFF combat is "simultaneous" - everything in an round happ...

Come back more often! :) Well then I won't have all this good stuff saved up for me! But yeah, keeping places like this lively is very important.

Re: AFF One-shot stories/ideas

If anyone has any stories or adventure hooks to share then I'd love to hear them. Possibly doesn't quite fit your request, but I thought that AFF Directors might be able to make some use of the AS&SH Adventure Generator: http://www.hyperborea.tv/uploads/4/4/6/6/44662451/asshrandom-adv-gen.pdf I've ...

Recovering LUCK

Reading some old posts on my favourite blogs, I re-read Daniel Sell's post on LUCK. (Daniel is the author of Troika!, incidentally). http://whatwouldconando.blogspot.co.uk/2016/07/fighting-fantasy-luck.html Now, I've been toying with the idea of borrowing from Fate the idea of Aspects. Now, I've use...
