Re: Quasqueton Castle

Very nice, thanks for all the work you put into it!

Wondering if a fastidious gnome obsessed with tending his mushrooms would be good for the garden room? :)

Re: House Rules: Weapons & Armour...

Thank you for this, really interesting. I've been mulling it over during the weekend and would like to propose an alternative (and slightly simpler) approach if I may. Thoughts: One of the issues I have in AFF (and in most RPG's and Amy wargames) is that once you get into combat you sit there taking...

Re: House rule: Pilosophical Magic

Another thought I had this weekend. This can also be used to simulate the more advanced Elven magic. It mentions in Titan that you need to speak High Elvish to do anything other than party tricks as they call most human magic... but then in the rules they do exactly the same magic as any human would...

House rule: Varying the effects of combat

Hello, Some rules I use to vary combat a bit. Background: One of the great things of AFF is its simplicity, but at times i get the nagging feeling that some things are missing. One of those was danger in combat, if you have an advantage of 2 in a combat you'll probably win and be none the worse for ...

Re: House rule: Pilosophical Magic

Also as with the cost of Living I'd be really intested to hear how you are adapting and developing on some of these ideas.

Re: Cost of Living

Please do! I'd be really interested to hear how you are developing further on the concept. Solo gaming has it's joys but you don't get to throw around and develop ideas as often as in group play.

Re: House rule: Pilosophical Magic

That does not disturb me in the slightest! I'd be interested to see your campagne and how it develops. :)

Re: House rule: Pilosophical Magic

Good point Nuvulo, perhaps I can focus some of the negative effects more on the caster rather than randomly on those in the area. Hubris is a real risk with this so perhaps I can change one of them to have the Gods punish the casters perceived hubris and arrogance by turning them into something smal...

Re: House rule: Pilosophical Magic

Here is a proposed Oops table. Roll 2D6 2 The caster is turned into a goat for D6x10 minutes. They can still think but in all other aspects are a goat. 3 Μῑνώταυρος (Minotauros): Minotaur - A minotaur suddenly appears just out of sight, get running or get ready! 4 Everywhere is filled with grapes, t...

Re: House rule: Pilosophical Magic

Hi John, Thanks for checking!

There was a suggestion previously on the forum of using Greek as a proxy for Ancient Allansian, plus Carsepolis obviously has a Greek root.

I like your idea, perhaps that could be the basis for a new Oops table? Like when you fail a spell casting roll with a 12.

Re: House rule: Pilosophical Magic

Example Verbs (I’ve included some suggested Greek terms if you feel like shouting out the spell in Ancient Allansian, please forgive any errors): Create Δημιουργώ (Dimiourgó) Create something with x number of properties or improve x properties of something (including healing x # of ST) See Βλέπω (Bl...

Re: House rule: Pilosophical Magic

Rules: This is a more freeform style of magic which requires players and directors to discuss and think, but can also open up interesting opportunities and situations. Readers will obviously see the influence of Ars Magica. Philosophical magic requires a lot of study, long arguments and even more si...

House rule: Pilosophical Magic

Hello, Here are some house rules for an alternative magic style: Philosophical magic. One based not on specific spells and incantations but on the forms of things. Background: Created in Carsepolis by the great thinker Epiphanes who argued that nothing was real except the forms of things. He gathere...
