Re: You Are the Hero (Jonathan Green)

Nice of Jonathan Green to reply here in person. I'd found his website at http://jonathangreenauthor.blogspot.com/ (or http://acegamebooks.com/ ) and dropped him an email. As well as his YATH books I bought Beowulf Beastslayer (that through one of the big online booksellers to get free postage to Aus...

Re: You Are the Hero (Jonathan Green)

It was a Kickstarter and I guess there were no follow on printings. I see there was a second book that I also missed! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/jo ... escription

Re: [New Player] Magic-Priestly

Welcome to the forum! Page 88 says "a Priest may only use each of his gifted powers once every day", so that's the default. The unique power for the Beast Lords is an exception that's called out by saying "The priest will never be attacked", emphasis on never. If it doesn't say something like that i...

Re: Best solo book authors to convert to AFF adventures

Forest of Doom is a good example because Darkwood Forest also has the Eye of the Dragon dungeon below it. I wasn't aware that was in Darkwood, it'd add a nice centre piece. I like a sand box to have multiple mini-dungeons in the style of the D&D module Night's Dark Terror, just one to several encou...

Re: Best solo book authors to convert to AFF adventures

Thinking some more on this, the biggest question for the designer when converting a FF gamebook to an AFF2 scenario is how closely to try to stick to the plot. But the gamebook you're working on has a lot to do with that. Take Sorcery for example. Large parts of the gamebooks are quite linear and re...

Re: Best solo book authors to convert to AFF adventures

Sandbox these days seems to usually mean wilderness, but an indoor location like Citadel of Chaos shares a lot of the same characteristics. Although you have a goal (kill Balthus Dire) the citadel is an open environment the hero can explore in any way they want. Obviously in the gamebook your choice...

Re: Best solo book authors to convert to AFF adventures

So someone on Facebook was asking which FF books were easiest to convert. I was going down the list of books before realizing that I was including every book by Keith Martin. His books are mainly hubs/sandbox explorations so the only thing to change would be the encounters. I don't think I've playe...

Re: Défis fantastiques

Yeah the Défis Fantastiques books look really nicely presented. I'm pretty sure no one would have translated the scenarios from Scenariotheque, that'd be great to see happen.

Re: Eye of the Serpent

This is updated in the same AFF2 style I've been using and a lot of minor improvements: AFF2 Eye of the Serpent 2.0 For anyone who Isn't familiar with the original module it's well worth the $5 to get it for this AFF2 adaptation. If you are, this has it rearranged to provide twice the adventure and ...

Re: Extended treasure tables

I was going through what I've posted here that's worth doing more with and realised the random potion descriptions go with my treasure generation PDF. So I've added an improved version of it as an appendix.

Re: New Map

I haven't used Wonderdraft but like the sound of it, thanks for pointing it out. I'd always rather pay once and have an app on my laptop than a subscription to an online tool like some of the others, and it's pretty cheap too. It also sounds like they keep adding features and the updates are free, a...

Re: SkinnyOrc's Notebook

I've updated my adaptation of The Well to the same "AFF2 look" as my Combat, Occupations and Treasure PDFs.
