Re: AFF Fanzine (AFFFZ?)

I agree on the role of the editor. Although I can’t promise enough time to be part of the central team I’m happy write articles on a range of subjects on the list.

Re: AFF Fanzine (AFFFZ?)

Really like the ideas here, thanks for opening up a thread on it. What I would like to see: verity, different topics and writers (if possible) the best fanzines in my experience show the community and let people with different tastes and interests find something which they can relate to/enjoy.

Re: AFF should be more popular

Thanks everyone I’m really touched, this is a great example of how friendly our little community is!

Everything is going wonderfully and we are getting a little sleep her and there.

But back to the matter in hand... any news Graham?

Re: "Trading in" Wizard spells

I first read this and went What how do you forget a spell?!? But thanks to Dawndeath’s comment about it all depends on how magic works in your version of Titan I suddenly saw the light. It’s amazing how ideas about things in a setting get ingrained in our minds. Side point Sukumvit and Dawndeath... ...

Re: Maelstrom Rome released

I’ve had a go with Rome, if they didn’t like the magic system then they might be a stumbling block because this works in a similar way. So either use it for a more historical style game or adapt the magic rules I’d say. What you can do is change what is possible at each level to make it more of a hi...

Re: AFF should be more popular

Another point on the forum: Keeping it as the friendly, welcoming and exceptionally polite place which it is. A closed group with lots of in jokes, snearing about others and being short tempered and rude is an absolute killer for any ruleset.

Re: AFF should be more popular

I’ve been following this discussion with interest but a new born baby has been keeping my hands occupied preventing me replying. That said a couple of things which are coming up and which I agree with: Community, Community, Community! There is nothing in AFF’s or indeed any RPG’s mechanics which mak...

Re: Newbee question

I was looking at DF and the Forum from the publisher. Looks good I have to say! Although the forum seems a bit quiet these days, how is the community over there? Looking at the other discussions happening about how to make AFF more popular wondering if there would be opportunities for cross pollinat...

Re: AFF should be more popular

This is an excellent topic and I’ve been giving it some thought. One of the advantages which D&D has over pretty much any RPG is name recognition. Even my wife who has absolutely no interest whatsoever in RPG’s and gaming has heard of D&D although she had no idea what it was. For many people Dungeon...

Re: Shields and Helmets

Dawndeath, spot on with the comment about the breath of possibilities with SA. With AFF and SA you can do high fantasy, historical, modern, sci-fi of any description... if you can imagine it then you have the tools to do it. I’ve tried lots of different systems but nothing has beaten these ones for ...

Re: Shields and Helmets

Hello again, peeps. HedgeWizard's suggestion of looking at the Maelstrom books is uncanny in its timing - I've recently been thinking of checking them out (particularly the Gothic variation, natch.) Do! an excellent series (although I haven’t yet purchased Gothic). It’s been a real source of inspir...

Re: Shields and Helmets

I don’t know those settings/games so I’ll have to check them out. When I first read your message I saw Marlborough which brought images to me of the turn of 18th century: big wigs, big coats, big hats and lines of soldiers facing each other. That certainly would be a departure from the usual setting...
