Re: The Caves of Death (a short adventure)

Nice idea with the Unholy Howl. They think they have it all under control and then suddenly they're up to their a%*es in the undead. Not to mention cut off from the way out...

Re: Has anyone tried the gamebook apps?

That's good to hear from someone else who appreciates the books. I read about the Sorcery apps when they first started coming out and the talk of new content sounded ambitious but I thought was just as likely to make a hash of them.

Getting the quick start in more languages can only be a good thing. Nice work Hullalla!

Re: Has anyone tried the gamebook apps?

I haven't tried Sorcery but I did get Snow Witch for my iPad when it came up discounted. I seem to remember the Sorcery apps use a different game engine to the FF apps, but I was pretty impressed with this one. I like that they've made the mechanics side of it (dice rolling, character sheet) easier ...

Re: Greetings from SkinnyOrc

Thanks Hullalla! I'm slowly working my way through the old posts here. Loads of great ideas, there's some creative people on the forum. I have a couple of AFF projects on the go too but more on those later...

Re: Lizard Kings

Sure, that's a fair point. It'd be surprising if an actual member of the lizard king breed would have been amongst the guards on Fire Island. The lizard king there probably was a normal lizard man who took that role after the gongchong gave him the strength and intelligence to do it. Which makes it ...

Lizard Kings

I may be the only one to have wondered this, but why does the lizard king in Island of the Lizard King run around wearing nothing but a gongchong? All the other lizard men wear something, the priests have robes, the soldiers have armour and sometimes what looks like chain mail y-fronts in Battleblad...

Re: Combat modifiers for shields/weapons with longer reach

they get a second attack per round with a shield, or this could come under ambidextrous Yep you could stretch the ambidextrous talent to cover this. You could rule it lets them use the shield as a second weapon (stats as an improvised weapon or maybe a club), the question is would they still get an...

Re: 4 new talents.

That doc of yours needs a few more pages. :) I like all of these, they let a character specialise in a very different direction. A few ideas. Sniper sounds very modern but I really struggled for something else, most alternatives like Sharpshooter still have something to do with guns. But then I look...

Re: Combat modifiers for shields/weapons with longer reach

The battle axes are described as two handed and double headed so I had them down as long reach, but sure where you choose to draw the lines is kind of arbitrary. As far as parrying goes I reckon greatswords wouldn't be as good as a longsword for that either. With that much momentum you kind of have ...

Re: Combat modifiers for shields/weapons with longer reach

My opinion is if the shield's as well as a proper weapon then anything offensive a character can do with it is already included in their SKILL. To put it another way a low SKILL character would just block blows with it but a high SKILL character would throw the odd shield bash in. If they weren't us...

Re: Learning cantrips

The way I read it there's no limits to how many cantrips can be learnt, or Wizardry spells for that matter. But for Wizardry spells you need to find either someone willing to teach it or a spell book containing it, and you can apply the same to Minor Magic. That can be made as hard or easy as you li...

Re: Can archmages invent their own religions?

I guess it depends on the nature of the gods in your game. If the gods are like people with super powers who meddle in the affairs of mortals (ancient Greek style) then I'd expect the powers would be chosen by the god and the priests get what they're given. On the other hand the gods might really be...

Re: Magical items of Titan

I'm guessing that you'd have to go through the forums and pick and choose what information should be put in the net book. I'm going to be trawling the forums top to bottom for ideas anyway. So if this didn't go anywhere I can do a doc pulling it all together given a bit of time. That'd do most of t...

Re: Gold value in game books vs RPG/titan

Also I was looking into how the coin sizes stack up. The rulebook says 100 coins weigh the same as a "standard item" and you can carry 10 items without it slowing you down or a max of 20 items (without the Strength Special Skill). That means you can carry at most 2000 coins if you carried nothing el...
