Re: Gazettes in the works?

Are you talking about official or fan material? Since the OP was talking about producing one himself (or herself), I'm assuming fan material. While we're on the subject, would anyone like to read about thirty thousand words on the history of Khul (from a Gazeteer of Khul I've been thinking about wr...

Re: Atlantis Campaign

Perhaps I was misled by the fact that the first thing I read in your campaign was "Irritaria ... was ruled from the island of Atlantis by a dynasty of great kings" but in Titan—The Fighting Fantasy World , we are told that the reason Atlantis was sunk beneath the waves was that its last king, Faramo...

Re: (Almost) EVERY FORUM RULE!!

There was some mention of converting the house rules into a PDF, but I don't think it has happened yet, so I made one. I'm afraid I edited them a bit to get it down to 16 pages and I apologise to anyone who is unhappy with my changes to their work. I'm happy to make alterations if asked, or someone ...

Re: A few suggestions for rules changes

Languages Instead of having points for languages and needing 4 points to be fluent, maybe the languages skill can be more of a “decipher” skill where the hero can decipher written and spoken languages that they don’t know. Learning a language to a fluency level could cost 100xp (which is 10 points ...

Re: proportion of thepopulation by skill

Thank-you both for your kind comments. I don't think it's a problem to have two different rules for shields. In the solo books, they add a point of Attack Strength (or SKILL , or deduct a point of Attack Strength from the opponent, which are all equivalent in combat), whilst in AFF2e, they provide a...

Re: proportion of thepopulation by skill

I agree that for being who can learn skills, the SKILL value given in the books represents SKILL + Weapon Special Skill. However, the number of mortal enemies with such an effective SKILL of more than 12 is vanishingly small, even though it is not unheard of for enemies to use magic combat-enhancing...

Re: House rule - no Awareness skill

I like this idea. Players should be free to build any starting character they want (within the rules, obviously), but Awareness is so valuable that nearly everyone takes it, which ends up reducing player choice. This house rule also makes the humans' compulsory City Lore (or Terrain Lore) Skill more...

Re: Atlantis campaign

There's also a guy in the adventure who is from a FF book. Hmmmmm. Not is all as it seems... There is a character with the same name and occupation as someone from one of the books, but the background section makes it fairly clear that the campaign is set many centuries after the death of the chara...

Re: Outnumbered combat rules

Earlier in the thread, a tactic was mentioned where some combatants would fight defensively to give an outnumbering bonus to their allies. However, I think the bonus is intended to represent the difficulty of defending against multiple attackers, not just people standing around trying not to get hit...

Re: Out of the pit 3

What, no Wax Golem? Seriously though, I'm very much looking forward to OotP3—Revenge of the Pit . I think Beyond the Pit and The Titan Herbal are by far the best Arion Games publications so far (at least under the AFF brand) and this list of monsters has several that I've wanted to know more about e...

Re: Atlantis Campaign

Does this mean that the gazetteer will be relating to the Arion of the Atlantis campaign, rather than the one in the Fighting Fantasy books? Because if so, I think I'll pass. I have to say that I think it's a shame that you changed so much about the history, geography and politics from what was desc...
