Re: Newbee question

There, you see? SkinnyOrc is the main man for rules questions, if Graham's not around. At the risk of muddying the waters: also confused by the disparity between the two given distances, I ruled that the 10 metres applies to sprinting across the battle-zone, while the 2 (or 3) metres applies to movi...

Re: Newbee question

Strolling along one of the many paths in his garden, Destiny continued to read from his book: "while nobody was looking, Sukumvit quietly scuttled towards the exit, sticking close to the wall and making the shadows work in his favour. Crushed by his poor grasp of the finer points of combat rules, bu...

Re: DICE!

My current favourite dice are TDSO orange and yellow Duel dice (actually made by HengDa, but TDSO sell them under their own brand.) They most obviously resemble fireballs, but they also remind me of pumpkins - the shades of orange and yellow are very similar to pumpkin skin and flesh (the flesh in p...

Re: Newbee question

I'm not quite sure what you mean by 'I do not understand how "go with Graham," ' but what I meant was that bottg, who also answered your initial question, is Graham Bottley, who wrote AFF2; so if you're looking for an official rules answer, his answer by far takes precedence over mine (i.e. let the ...

Re: Newbee question

Hello again, raskal. If you had to choose between the two replies above, go with Graham's; he designed the game! But as I said, there's nothing stopping you from from handling it differently, if that's what you want to do. It's your game, now. As for your second question, I would have the Hero use a...

Re: Newbee question

Graham snuck in again, while I was typing my reply! Serves me right for taking too long to figure out how I want to phrase things (and compulsively check spelling mistakes.) In that case, I've been doing it wrong! Oh well; as I said, it's a convention that I've adopted, so I'll probably stick with i...

Re: Newbee question

Welcome to the forums, raskal. I don't now what others would say, but I've always assumed that each character can perform one action per round (even though I don't think the rules explicitly state that anywhere - it's my interpretation/convention;) so if a Hero had cast a spell at the start of the r...

Re: AFF should be more popular

Hey, SkinnyOrc. Some good points, as always. You're absolutely right that the superhero boom seemed to be the thing that got the "genre entertainment" ball rolling; and with Disney owning two massive geek franchises, it's going to be rolling for quite a while... When you say that FF and AFF are prod...

Re: AFF should be more popular

Right, I'm back again. Hi, Graham. It's heartening to hear that AFF is doing well in overseas markets; I guess we have only been discussing English-speaking markets and forgetting about the rest of the world. I hope you don't think we were belittling your achievements, by the way; you've done an exc...

Re: AFF should be more popular

Yikes. It's happened again; while I was replying to HedgeWizard, another post snuck in - and the Man Himself, no less. I have to dash right now, but I'll get back to you later on, Graham. It's good to know that this has attracted the attention of the Senior Management! :P

Re: AFF should be more popular

Hey, HedgeWizard. Good to talk to you again. Starting with your final point first, I agree that we need to be pulling in anyone who shows an interest, rather than just ambushing new D&D players on the way to their clubs! If I sounded a bit militant about turning them away from the "dark side," it's ...

Re: AFF should be more popular

Hey, LordArioch. I wish you lots of luck with the blog - I hope it succeeds in raising awareness of AFF (and other lesser-known games that need champions.) Apart from anything else, I'm sure it will be very enjoyable and satisfying to have your own platform. I didn't know you were American; I actual...

AFF should be more popular

Few roleplayers will have failed to notice that D&D is going through another of its periodic revivals, and that this is probably the biggest one yet - it's "gone mega," with WOTC estimating that there are forty million D&D players in the world, and articles in the (very) mainstream press being writt...

Oh, and you're right about "Creature of Havoc;" double-yikes. And a holy-moly.
