Okay, won't lie... my initial impression of the book is that seemed a bit overpriced considering the content, although it is some excellent content. Then I weighed that up against the fact that the campaign I'm currently running is the one from the first run of books (which I got for free - thank yo...

Hopefully later today if my book turns up... used an online delivery estimator after I got an email telling me my book was posted yesterday, and it reckoned it should get here today. Looking forward to seeing if this book has any new core rules/skills/talents/spells/other stuff in it as well as the ...

1) can spellcasters cast spells in combat rather than making an attack? Yes, but I think they suffer a (-2?) penalty to the roll for being under attack while they're casting, though that's easily negated by spending one or more combat rounds in preparation for the cast which adds its own bonus. My ...

Is losing the Weapon Special Skill bonus then enough of a drawback for the remainder of the combat? Perhaps after the berserk moment the Hero should also suffer a negative penalty to SKILL and also be unable to rage again for a set/variable duration? As a rolled double would potentially extend the r...

Homebrew Talent: Berserker!

A Hero with this Talent is able to release powerful but unpredictable battle lusts during combat. The berserker state is either triggered by rolling a double during Combat or by the Hero spending a round working themselves up into a Berserker Rage. While in a Berserker state, for Combat Rounds equa...

Ahh the Pirates of the Caribbean approach. Treat them as "more what you'd call "guidelines" than actual rules." In that case, I have a Priest of Galana I'd better get in touch with. Though if you assume Priests are capable of blessing objects or areas in the name of their Deity, Create Food/Water wo...

Priestly Powers confusion?

Say for example I'd chosen Galana, Goddess of Nature and Fertility. Are the three general powers listed under her: a) Examples of what three powers would best fit one of her Priests - meaning I don't have to have them specifically but those would be considered typical for a Priest of Galana. b) Defi...

As the others before me have said, look forward to nabbing the Crown of Kings book. They were epic enough to solo through the first time; I can't wait to see what changes they've made to them for "multi-player". The one part I'm hoping my players fall for are the Mutant Meatballs from Book 4. You kn...

Pretty interesting stuff. I like Favored Companion and Sidekick , though I might tweak the latter. Yes, Sidekick definitely needs some sort of tweaking... It's hard trying to balance it so that you have some tangible benefit without making the player just think "Pffft, a second Hero character would...

Homebrew Talents + Spells

I've created some homebrew stuff for my own AFF roleplay, but I want to get an opinion on how balanced they are first, and if nobody minds, some ideas or suggestions on how I can fix them if they aren't. Homebrew Talents Adept : This talent may only be chosen by a starting Hero, allowing them to cho...
