Re: Tweaks and clarifications to the new AFF rulebook

Yeah you can't take that section out of the rulebook until an updated OotP is done. Including a set of common monsters in the rulebook is a pretty good idea, and 20 might be enough. But as long as OotP isn't able to be reworked you still need the AFF2 stats for all the OotP creatures in the rulebook...

Re: Any plan for à third édition ?

I still prefer the Weapon Special Skill bonuses to Attack Strength coming from a table so they're in a 0-3 rather than 1-6 range, but seeing as Graham may not be keen to ever use that it's worth exploring other options. I can do what I like in my houserules but I'd like to see my favourite RPG work ...

Re: Tweaks and clarifications to the new AFF rulebook

On the topic of limiting improvement to stop invincible warriors, I have a few points: 1) Anything suggested would probably be too great a rules change for just a reprint. In terms of how much text in the rulebook would need to change to implement a fix it'd just need a few lines. So it's only pote...

Re: Tweaks and clarifications to the new AFF rulebook

Correct the Weapon stats from the "Out of the Pit monsters - special abilities" section to match the Combat section, BtP and RttP. So Medium becomes Large, and Large becomes Very Large.

Re: AFF should be more popular

we will be collaborating with Robert Schwalb (one of the biggest names in gaming) on a new version of AFF, which should be a full colour glossy hardcover with new art and so on. The rules and text will be broadly the same (some tweaks, clarifications and rearrangement) but it will look very differe...

Natural Mage talent ( http://arion-games.com/bb/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=880 ) changed to: A Hero must have at least one point in the Magic-Wizardry or Magic-Sorcery Special Skill in order to choose this Talent. If chosen, the Hero has an instinctive understanding of the less demanding spells in their r...

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

It's certainly mean for the designer to put something misleading in the intro, but to be fair the mention of two keys in WoFTM is in a section called Rumours! :) For Chasms of Malice, at least you can rest easy that you've proved it wasn't true so no one else has to. Maybe Astragal believes what he ...

Re: AFF Fanzine (AFFFZ?)

AFF stats for famous characters from other works. I remember they had a feature that did this for the D&D game in some of the earlier issues of Dragon Magazine, and it was one of my favourite series. One of the best features of AFF2 is the flexible character generation so this might be a good way t...

Re: Blackmoor Living World campaign with AFF2 being published!

Sorry, I wasn't clear enough there. I mean are they written in Italian and translated to English, or do you have native English speaking writers on board and do the Italian and English publications in parallel. I ask because translations from one language to another are usually pretty obvious due to...

Re: "Trading in" Wizard spells

I remember a particularly loathsome AD&D session when I was a teenager, in which a player insisted on playing his Chaotic Evil thief to the hilt, to the constant detriment of the other characters. Sounds like they had a bad case of smart-arse-itis. But the DM let them take a chaotic evil PC in what...

Re: "Trading in" Wizard spells

Of course, it should be up to individual Directors (and their players, to be fair) to determine how the 'science of magic' works in their game, and whether such exchanges fit in with their model. But I'd be happy with characters doing that. Yeah I don't see a problem with it from a game balance poi...

Re: Newbee question

Interesting to read that Défis Fanstatiques has different layout and art to the AFF2 rulebook. The pictures of the covers suggest a high standard of presentation. Is there a PDF? I would be tempted to buy it if it's not too much, just to see how it looks.

Re: Newbee question

a Hero can be assumed to move 10 metres per combat round It seems that sentence was changed from 2m to 10m in recent printings, and the other reference to it in the Fleet Footed talent was missed (I'd just take this as giving +50%). Graham can probably confirm but that seems like a deliberate chang...
