Hi Graham, what are the plans for AFF for this year?

I am part way through writing the Salamonis book, but there may be an issue with the artist, who was very central indeed to the book, and so that is temporarily halted whilst i evaluate things.

There will almost certainly be two new adventures this year, and there should be an Old World Gazeteer, although i also need to do a bit or organising on that.

There are a couple of other potential books hovering on the edge of my worklist, and i need to catch up with the author who has started on the scifi version to see if he or i can get that finished.

I will see if i can also get a hardcover AFF/Titan/Out of the pit done as well because i think that it would be a nice book to have.

Oh, and i finally need to get the AFF webpage back up and running!

Fully new adventures or gamebook conversions? Set in Titan or elsewhere?

For me this is probably the most exciting piece of news!

Covers my wish list pretty well :)

Think I'd heard hints of the Salamonis book and that'd be very welcome, but an Old World gazetteer is a nice surprise. I'd been hanging out for Titan 2 but breaking that into detailed books about each continent makes a lot of sense. For the adventures I'd be happy enough for one to be all the Riddling Reaver scenarios put together and updated. But it'd be good to see something new too.

There may even be three adventures this year! One is a translation from a french product, one is completely new and one will be a classic gamebook conversion...

Any thoughts on which classic FF game book Citadel of chaos perhaps? Forest of doom maybe with extra info on the location of the Dark Elf city of Tiranduil Kelthas and about Stonebridge, as well as Yaztromo would be nice.

Another good one could be Death trap Dungeon in all its incarnations for that complete blood bath experience or the exotic climate of Isle of the Lizard king o for that ideal holiday getaway :lol:

So I'm collecting a pile of gold coins, with pleasure.

I wrote once I'd love to buy such a compendium. When do you release that stuff - try to estimate?

Thoughts on the Old World Gazetteer will it have Regional variences on sorcery spells (this was discussed in an earlier thread a few years back?) regional skills and spells , hero archetypes and possibly a few new monsters? 8)
