Been lurking here for quite a while poking around here and there (SkinnyOrc, I love your enhancement PDF's!)
Thanks for the encouragement, reminds me to get some other stuff finished! :)
Going by the quality of what you’ve made up to now take it as a given that we’ll always be happy to see more!

Thanks, I do have one in the works on armour and equipment. It's pulling together various stuff I've posted here and some new bits.

To be fair, Graham has got us a lot of new AFF lately, including Return to the Pit which was eagerly awaited for a long time. On top of that there's the new revision of the rulebook he announced he's working on. Even if that's just prettying it up it's a major job (and I'm hoping for a little more in the way of rule tweaks). With all that and his day job we may have to wait a bit for anything really new.

But seeing as we're talking about it I'll put in my wish list:

1. A magic items book of all the best from the gamebooks, in the same vein as the Pit books and the Titan Herbal. I'm hoping this is Andrew Wright's next project!

2. A Salamonis source book.

3. Conversions of any of the Titan gamebooks and especially the earlier ones. So Citadel of Chaos, Forest of Doom, Deathtrap Dungeon, Island of the Lizard King, Caverns of the Snow Witch and so on. City of Thieves is kind of already covered with Blacksand, although an adventure set there'd be welcome too.
I would like to see more location books like Blacksand and Arion

Graham, is there much hope of a Salamonis book now? Back in 2016 you said "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." With that being so long ago I take it that didn't work out?

Salamonis was a big collaboration between myself and Steve Luxton...and he has unfortunately vanished (I fear the worst I am afraid). I will restart it though.

I am currently finishing off the Combat Companion, which will be released in February, as will the next two parts of the Atlantis Adventure.

Then it will be the Solo Guide that will move to the top of the list.

There is also a "Treasure" book in development that should be Q1 this year.

I am also working on the pack of Out of the Pit cards, which should also be Q1.


That is the immediate list!

Really eager to get my hands on the Combat Companion! Current party includes a player who wanted his hero to be skilled at unarmed fighting and a mage who is looking to learn... more useful spells for combat.

As a quick homebrew to make it viable I've so far been letting the unarmed fighter use the damage stats for clubs when he fights using an Unarmed skill, rather than the super low damage from usual unarmed fighting.

I hope the worst isn't the case, both for his sake and for the book. Steve's architectural illustrations are some of the most beautiful I've seen. But good to hear we'd still see the book in some form eventually.

Can you give us any info on the Combat Companion at this point? I remember you mentioned it last year as something in the works but I don't think said what it covers.

If you could use an extra pair of eyes for editing/proofing let me know: I'm unemployed and hard-pressed to find work in my rightful field.
