Re: Gold value in game books vs RPG/titan

I'm another who thinks your RPG coins should go a fair way. So I'm adding in a lower value copper coin (bronze to be picky but people call it copper) to pay for every day stuff, as well as a larger gold coin for the rich to use. 10 copper farthings = 1 silver penny 10 silver pennies = 1 gold shillin...

Re: Collection of skills, talents, spells and items

Lots of ideas there. I couldn't see the Enchantment Oil from your "Ways to harm supernatural creatures without magic weapons" thread, I liked that one.

Re: Superior items

Great idea to have this sort of thing the characters can buy to help them if you're making real magic items rare (my preference too). Some of them like the Lucky Charm and Mana Crystals seem more like very minor magic items? The Anti-poison too maybe if it works on any poison. Having them have local...

Re: How does a combat round look like?

Yeah initiative isn't something I miss with AFF. As people have said you either end up breaking the round down into something like segments, which is complicated and slow, or use the old your go their go, which is completely artificial. Obviously both sides would be acting at the same time and perso...

Re: Spells of Titan

I realised the new Death Spell is an Enchantment rather than a Ritual and those are usually named after the item they produce. So maybe Inscription of Wasting? But does it produce a permanent item or is the text harmless after the victim is affected? It might be better as a Ritual. But anyway it wou...

Re: Spells of Titan

Seeing as there's already a Death spell the Death ritual above could do with a new name. Ritual of Wasting perhaps? Or how about Ritual of the Dark Soul?! :) I'm sure I'm not the first to notice there's no equivalent to the Sorcery HOT spell in the Wizardry lists. Fireballs are a bit of a RPG staple...

Greetings from SkinnyOrc

I’m new here so I thought I’d say hi. For anyone vaguely interested, SkinnyOrc refers to the Russ Nicholson illustrations in Warlock of Firetop Mountain. Those pictures (and the whole book) had a lot to do with me getting into RPGs. They also set the way I’ve thought Orcs should look ever since and ...
