Re: Changing Magic Characteristic to Lore

I've been using this and saw that magical characters obviously get an advantage when setting up. So I suggest the following: If using the usual creation method then adding one point of Lore costs two points in the beginning topping out at 7 as with the Magic points before. If using the 0 Level chara...

Re: Gazettes in the works?

Gloccus, I'm happy to read what you've put together but would it not be better to make a PDF and then attach a link using something like dropbox or google drive? It'll be Abby easier for everyone.

Re: Magic-Minor and Magic Points

You could even use the Stella Adventures spell lists (with the exception of a few specific ones) instead of the Wizard and Sorcery lists if you want something quick and easy. But I would still keep the minor magic as it is.

I might be trying this soon as well.

Re: Gazettes in the works?

Thanks, is there a set format or rules (beyond not contradicting the canon of course)?

Re: Magic-Minor and Magic Points

You only include the Magic-Wizardry. This represents their greater training in managing magical energy compared to Sorcerers who use their inner life force or people only using minor magic who've just picked up a few tricks.

Gazettes in the works?

Is there any overview of what Gazettes are currently in the works and when they will be released?

Have an urge to get my creative juices flowing and produce one myself but don't want to duplicate what is already coming.

Re: AFF Stone Age

For writing you can even use clay tablets like in all the early middle eastern civilisations, further north birch bark works as well. For the tools you could look into the advantages of different technologies. Copper goes blunt quickly but can be resharpened which is difficult with flint. Bronze obv...

Re: AFF Place Name Generator

You seem to have an error on your character name generator. No matter what I pick it gives me an English mate name. I'm using an iPhone, don't know if that is affecting it

Changing Magic Characteristic to Lore

SkinnyOrc referenced a thread recently which got me thinking. http://arion-games.com/bb/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=737 In it Stuart made the proposal to change the Magic characteristic to Lore and start off with 4 points as with Skill. I think this is a great idea. Instead of testing for knowledge based a...

Re: AFF Stone Age

Another thought regarding Endurance. For Endurance tests instead of using Skill you could use Stamina/2. This not only makes more sense than using skill but also means that an individual's endurance reduces if they are injured or have not been eating/resting enough.

Thoughts?

Re: AFF Stone Age

This is really impressive, thanks for sharing it! Some of the ideas which you have here are interesting outside of the setting in a normal AFF adventure as well. You give a much richer context for the characters to exist in (exhaustion, disease, getting tired in combat etc.). Couple of comments: You...

Re: Combat Options

Good God this is a thing of beauty, thank you for putting it together. You managed to address one of the few issues with AFF, the deterministic nature of combat between opponents with more than a moderate skill difference, in a simple and elegant way.

I will be using this!
