One thing I think at the top of my wishlist would be an updated release of "campaign" material from the old AFF supplements like "Allansia." I must say I agree with that wholeheartedly. Re-release it, though preferably re-worked to remove any obvious logical errors in the plotline (I don't know if ...

A servant of the archmage has stolen an Analand spellbook and the heroes need to stop him before he gets back to Mampang. he is hiding out in Khare. That could work, but needs a tie-in to the main plot. (Especially with regards to "why the PCs and not some other Analand agents?) An informant in Kha...

Just a thought for Khare the silver snake ring used for forcing info from the 7 serpents in the original game book could be tweaked as an important quest item. If pcs become aware of the serpents earlier by a friendly source highlighting the urgency of capturing/destroying them to keep their quest ...

Crown of Kings - feeling a need to rewrite the Kharé quest..

Warning: Spoilers below! Players, stay away! So, I picked up Crown of Kings the other day, and I've skimmed through the first two parts. I like it this far, but I'm having a lot of trouble with the second part. Part 1: The shamutanti hills I really like this part. The adaption from gamebook to rpg ...

Personally, I think too many mechanical wonders of this kind ruins the beauty of the system. Instead, I'd say that if you can concievably do something with an attack (which isn't already modelled by the damage system), and you win the combat round - then what you wished to do happens instead of you ...

A more printer-friendly (less graphics and colors) format would also be good for on-screen viewing on less powerful computers (such as my phone...).

But as someone said - it's free. ;-)

I like it. It's very nice!

I miss numbered boxes for major equipment though (with space to expand it for characters with the Strength skill).

Apologies if I missed this somewhere, but I don't recall seeing it in the book or here on the site anywhere. What happens when someone uses a ranged weapon in melee? Does the enemy get to do damage if they win the combat round? Are ranged weapons just not useable in melee? Do they just receive the ...

Perhaps beef up the damage roll from a battle axe. However the main reason people used weapons other than swords, such as axes, is that swords are much more expensive, harder to make and repair. Not entirely true, if you care to do a bit of research. Axes and axe-like weapons have dominated more th...

Okay, clubs have one thing going for them: There are a couple of creatures that take more damage from blunt weapons. But from what I see, not really enough to warrant making these your primary weapon type...

Great websites for AFF2 directors

There are, if you're prepared to search for them, quite a few very useful resources on the web for AFF2 directors. Have I missed any? http://www.fightingfantasy.org.uk/Enkyn.html - Tons of resources. The maps for example are great. http://fightingfantasy.wikia.com/wiki/Fighting_Fantasy_Wiki_-_Titann...

Balance of weapon types

I've been looking at the weapons and their skills for a while now. Brawling is okay. It is a speciality skill, and there's not really any other skill that it's worth comparing it to. Bows and throwing also seem good. I haven't looked too closely at the the balance between throwing weapons and archer...
