Re: Citadel of Chaos Orc-Like Creatures

Using Combine is an interesting idea, it would certainly fit that. If they're an illusion I doubt the blowing in the eyes could coincide with the Sleep spell otherwise. The purpose of the illusion might be to distract in case the Sleep fails and another spell needs to be cast. Sleep is a very effect...

Re: Citadel of Chaos Orc-Like Creatures

It's the only place they appear I think. They definitely materialize, "You wheel round in time to see Orc-like creatures, armed and on guard, materializing one after the other behind you." After you fall unconscious you wake in the jail, so someone's carrying you there. But it is possible the librar...

Citadel of Chaos Orc-Like Creatures

I've been playing the old Citadel of Chaos gamebook with my son and noticed something I'm wondering about. If you look at the wrong book in the library, or too many, a squad of guards materialise behind you. They're described as "Orc-like" and the tallest one blows a puff of breath into your eyes ca...

Re: Combat Companion

Always good to have more options. Martial arts was something that came up on here a while back, it'll be interesting to see what you've done with that one.

10 year anniversary, does that mean Graham needs to buy it something made of tin? :D

Re: combat modifier for flight

The footnote for the "Airborne" combat modifier says: "Applied to both mounted attacker and unmounted foe" Taken literally, this penalty ONLY applies when attacking from a flying mount - BUT in that case it also applies to any unmounted foe (flying or not). Since combat is an opposed test, it would...

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

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 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'v...

Re: Sensational Atlas of Titan

Instead of saying where places are it describes how it feels when you are there. Short evocative sentences which capture of the essence of the place. It'd be a huge amount of work doing that for even the canon locations, but yeah ideally you'd have both that sort of thing and more factual info. Tra...

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

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 ...

Re: Where can I find a detailed map of Allansia/Titan?

One of the things I like about Titan is that there are no detailed “Canon” maps. It gives a lot more freedom for creating your own spaces without having to keep thinking about it fits into everything else. Agree the gaps on the Titan maps are useful. With it coming from the gamebooks you get small ...

Re: Learning Minor Magic spells

Apparently also in a document from Graham clarifying some points in AFF but which is no longer on the website. Actually you're right, it is in the errata doc: Page 56: Experience The experience cost to acquire a new cantrip is 10 XP. It doesn't revoke the bit about extra cantrips being learnt autom...

Re: Where can I find a detailed map of Allansia/Titan?

Had a look in my collection and I only have a low res of Holt's map too. Reading about it on Titannica it sounds like there was a lot of non-canon invention on it. Yeah Atlas of Titan is pretty good, although I've never got around to reading it all.

Re: Learning Minor Magic spells

- Additional ones are learned at a cost of 20 Experience Points for two cantraps (you must have a teacher or spell book to learn them from) 10 XP each has been suggested a few times, which is pretty much the same thing. - increasing Minor Magic does not give additional cantraps Yep number of cantri...
