Re: Shields and Helmets

It’s a sandbox reimagining Titan. I want to keep the variety of cultures but I’m modifying technology a bit and tweaking magic.

Just a bit of fun for the summer :)

Shields and Helmets

I’ve been mulling some alternative rules for helmets and shields and wanted your thoughts. Imagining AFF as more of a dark age/early medieval setting I limited armour to chandail hauberk at the maximum. But at that time everyone had whopping great big shields (round shields, kite shields etc.). If a...

Re: Solo Guide

This is great news. As a 100% solo player I’ve used every available set of solo rules with AFF and SA as well as making many home brew versions. Really interested to see what you come up with. Some things I would suggest: - make it tailored to AFF and SA, it needs to fit with them and allow the play...

Re: New stat checks.

Just answering to your question about simplifying. The mechanics of the game books are built into each story. Basically you’re only seeing part of the rules, what you would see as a player in a normal game but not the bit behind the GM’s screen. That means that sometime different approaches are used...

Really looking forward to seeing what you’ve put together. I happen to be getting back into SA again at the moment.

Re: DICE!

Must admit I’m also not to bothered about this unless the dice is obviously broken (a very rare experience). I just get lots of them and grab what I need. If this was an issue for me then I wouldn’t be able to play any of the board games which I enjoy!

Re: New stat checks.

I read my post again and realise it came across a bit too hard. For that I apologise, posting and doing housework are not a good combination: focus on one thing at a time or get a familiar! My point was just we need to keep in mind that a lot changed between the original FF books and AFF. The first ...

Re: Downgrading SKILL

I think there is something in this. Perhaps another way to put it is that your starting Skill is your natural ability as an adult which in itself doesn’t change that much. The focus is then as you said on getting special skills abilities to build on it. I would not fix it to 6 for everyone but have ...

Re: New stat checks.

The FF books had their rules changing depending on what the particular writer wanted to achieve so you’ll find all sorts of stuff in there and little harmonisation. What’s wrong with the AFF rules as they are? There are some small changes which have been adopted by the community over time but the co...

Re: Elf Abilities.

The list I gave above was only based on Phantom's of Fear. If I added what I got from Titan the list would be a bit longer and somewhat conflicting. I have a problem I'm trying to figure out and deal with right now that goes like this... Elves are pretty much human + . They have better eyesight, be...

Re: Elf Abilities.

SkinnyOrc, great list to start with. Something which was interesting in Titan is that they do not hate anyone. The idea is baffling to them, even with Orcs they are at best neutral to them. This means that things like bearing a grudge or wanting revenge will also be alien concepts to them. They will...

Re: Elf Abilities.

It definitely can be hard to get the culture and ways of thinking of other races across to players. That Defenders of the Forest has a lot of GM info and is probably a bit much to ask a lot of players to read. It'd be great to extract a brief guide to playing an elf out of it and other sources like...
