Re: What's Next on the Horizon for AFF2e?

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.

Re: New Map

I haven't used Wonderdraft but I like what I see of it. I'd 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, although I guess that could chang...

Re: SkinnyOrc's Notebook

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

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! :)

Re: What's Next on the Horizon for AFF2e?

Works for The Biggest Role-Playing Game. I thought opening up the licensing was a bit of a mixed bag for WotC? They wanted everyone else to produce adventures for them, which happened. But they also got everyone cloning the various editions of the rules and openly distributing them, resulting in a ...

Re: Defining Medicinal Potions

Not sure if they are, but you could treat them the same as a Curative Salve.

I'm working on a magic items book right now! :-)
Number one on the wish list I posted above! It's excellent news it's happening and that you're doing it.

Re: Money, a new approach

Yep the real world is more complicated than we'd probably want in the game world, although a little of that messiness can be fun. A new ruler often issued their own coins and those might not be the same weight or precious metal content as what was already in circulation. Sometimes that was a deliber...

Re: Money, a new approach

As far as I know that's not how it was historically, but of course not everything has to be and it's your campaign. Copper was valuable in the Bronze Age because it was used to make bronze for pretty much anything metal, and into the Iron Age because they were still using a lot of bronze. But by the...

Re: Definition of "Wilderness" for Monsters

In old school D&D, wilderness used to mean anything that wasn't a "dungeon" or an urban area like a town. Which of course meant that farmland was wilderness. So yeah, a much abused term. :)

Re: Money, a new approach

I like the approach of 100 coins = 1 point of encumbrance but don’t question your calculations. To keep the simplicity it could just be changed to something like 500 coins/gems to an item. But with real world coin sizes, AFF2 treasure quantities, and everyone in the party carrying a part of what's ...

Re: Money, a new approach

After most coins being silver, the next best way to add some real world is not all coins being the same size. Coins were worth the precious metal in them, so a silver shilling worth twelve silver pennies was twelve times the size of a penny. Here's some typical historical coin weights: gold sovereig...

Re: Money, a new approach

I like that, and for the names we can go even further. Instead of using a Crown you could call it a Groat (or Groschen if you want German or Grosso for Italian) which comes from denaro grosso or big penny apparently. This does have the nice side affect that you can put g as a short hand which is no...

Re: Money, a new approach

Sure, I wasn't meaning to hold you responsible for copper coins in RPGs :) Each coin denomination being a different metal is a well worn RPG convention. I'll point the finger at D&D, if it didn't invent that it certainly popularised it. But it's convenient and I've used copper coins myself, as I tal...
