I decided to launch a day early as it is all but ready. I am writing the last few pages tomorrow and then at the weekend i will start on the layout and start on the included adventure. You can find it here:

If you have been reading the manuscript so far, feel free to comment on the KS pages what your thoughts are. In this sort of KS, where the text is not available to all, comments by those who have read it are invaluable!

So am I (obviously i am, but this one is different).

This is actually based on a fairly long campaign i played in many, many years ago (late 80's). It didn't use this system but had the same idea and over time the thought has been growing that it is a prefect match for AFF. Throw in the great Demon types already in the setting and BOOM! We have Demons of Doom!

Feel free to give it a run, those of you who have the proofread documents and let me (and KS) know what you think.

I would love to run a campaign where the players play heroes for the first bit and accumulate xp, items and followers and then for second half, the players switch to playing demons and do the same. The final session can be a battle between them.

Or maybe, you run two campaigns with two sets of players - heroes and demons and then get them to fight during one session.

Hey, I would really love to back this, but I only have a Chinese bank card (UnionPay) and PayPal, neither of which seem to be payment options on Kickstarter. Is there anything I can do?

I think this is a GREAT project for AFF! One of my concerns with AFF was that it might wined up simply rehashing older material. I think the basic system is second to none and really wanted to see NEW (original) material for this great game! "Looking back" builds the fan base, looking forward makes it grow IMHO. Great job Arion! You've done AFF proud!!!
