Re: Money, a new approach

Also usually only the ruler would be minting coins, and everywhere was at least nominally part of the domain of a ruler. Anywhere so remote there was no one who'd get upset at them doing their own coinage probably couldn't manage it technically. So even if in your world copper is rarer and more val...

Re: Money, a new approach

I don’t know if I would go quite so far in approaching reality but it’s a fascinating route to go down. For the encumbrance I think it’s not just a question of weight but also ease of carrying. I like the approach of 100 coins = 1 point of encumbrance but don’t question your calculations. Now for th...

Re: Multiple layers of armour

Interesting thoughts! With a skill impact you need to take into account the training of the person. SkinnyOrc has had some suggestions on Armour and skill ratings. I wouldn’t simply add them together, if you are trained to wear several layers and in good shape they won’t cause an issue in a fight. B...

Re: Money, a new approach

I like that, and for the names we can go even further. Instead of using a Crown you could call it a Groat (or Groschen if you want German or Grosso for Italian) which comes from denaro grosso or big penny apparently. This does have the nice side affect that you can put g as a short hand which is not...

Re: Money, a new approach

Throughout the middle ages and renaissance most coins were silver. Copper coins (including alloys such as brass and bronze where it's mixed with other metals) were used in ancient times but not much after that. Lower value coins were usually still silver only smaller. Often they were just the stand...

Money, a new approach

I think quite a few people are already using copper pieces as a smaller denomination below silver pieces (I.e. dividing some things like drinks, lodging etc. by 10 so that sp becomes cp). Spurred on by an excellent book which looks at how you can make fantasy rpgs closer to the realities of medieval...

Multiple layers of armour

I’ve been pondering about armour and wondered how you deal with players having multiple layers of armour. It was normal for knights etc to be wearing more than one type of armour (e.g. padded jacket with Mail over the top and then a breastplate, either solid or made of small plates, on top). I sugge...

Re: Newbee question

I'll chime in with my own question from another not-quite newbie (I've grown up on the German translations of the FF books ...). Still looking for a quick-and-easy but flexible fantasy system, and AFF2 comes surprisingly near to what I imagine. One of my questions: Am i correct that the level of a ...

Re: First issue submissions

That’s why I put out these messages. It’s gone a bit quiet with the end of year festivities and it would be great to get things moving again.

I’m working on some things.

First issue submissions

Happy 2020 everyone!

How about we restart our work on the AFF Fanzine? Perhaps we can set a deadline for article entries. End of January?

I’m posting this here and in the AFF forum to get the maximum number of people.

Re: A Solo-Play version would really be great

I’m looking forward to the solo version to but have been playing AFF solo already for years now. I’ve tried all the big names and made a fair few home brew systems. Basically if you want to get your solo fix while waiting for the official solo version to come out then there are a number of options o...
