Just a suggestion, I'm not sure I would replace luck. Since, I've started replaying AFF lately, I've found that luck is a really important stat. It was very underappreciated when I used to play the books or the RPG. When your character didn't have a high skill, using luck rolls would be huge help in combat, especially against tougher opponents. It's also am important stat since it's used to avoid spells. I like the gaining derangements part.
Thanks. You're quite right about Luck. :oops:

As for the rest of it, I'd probably redo the increased damage idea -- the system scales nicely enough as it is with fewer points available during character creation.

So. Take two!

-- Initial stats are Skill 4, Stamina 6, Luck 8

-- You have 3 points to spend as per the rules, with no stat benefiting from more than two points.

I'd also probably put a hard cap of 6 on Skill, moving development over to special skills wholesale.

Dread Cthulu in an AFF setting I can feel my Sanity and Fear traits slipping away already :wink:

For a more fantasy horror setting beneath Nightmare Castle could be used as a good starting block :D
I just found that here are some lovecraftian themes also in Slaves of the Abyss...

I am actually running a conversion of Bodies in the Docks with an ad hoc set of lovecraftian AFF house rules: https://www.rpol.net/game.cgi?gi=74000&date=1572465472
Overall, I'm trying to keep it simple.

This is the first time I've heard of Forbidden Gateway. Shame that there are few copies, and they go for obscene amounts of cash. :cry:

be patient and you'll find cheap options as well.
