The ZED Spell

Has anyone used this mysterious, Big Red Button of Doom spell in their campaign? If so, how did you elaborate on the details and effects?

Re: Atlas of Titan

This Atlas looks pretty ace. 8) Hopefully the assembled facts are accurate. It will take me some time to plow through it.

Ancient Allansian

On p. 29 of the AFF2e rulebook there is a mention of a language called "Ancient Allansian". Are there any canon references, or graphic depictions, of this language in the gamebooks? Are we to construe this as a fantasy equivalent to Classical Latin, Greek, or some other, even more antiquated tongue?...

Re: Quick and dirty skirmish battle rules

Sounds like an elegant way to deal with a massed combat scenario. Porting in Chainmail (by Gygax and Perren) is recommended if large engagements become a regular feature of one's campaign: for wargaming rules it's pretty elementary and can be developed quite easily by the ref to suit any number of g...

Re: Ranged weapon for a Lizardman

Darts (aka martiobarbuli)?
Javelins/short spears
Throwing axes, perhaps like franciscas?
Halberds (a reference to the old TSR logo). :)

Re: Most Anticipated RPG of 2017: vote for Stellar Adventures!

Done!

So...what did I win? :lol:

Has Graham weighed in lately to give us any updates? (Not that I'm in a hurry to get it, mind. I would be happiest if he took his time to make it right. 8) )

Clarification requested: Concentrate Spell

Concentrate (+2) If this spell is cast on the round before any other spell, the second spell will be re-cast immediately its duration expires without requiring a new spellcasting test or indeed any time. Magic points will be expended again at the time of recasting, and the recast spell will be reca...

Re: Entelodon (Hell Pig)

Great write-up! 8)
It's a bit odd to see such a powerful porcine without large tusks, a la the wild boar (sus scrofa).

Re: Invincible Players

I don't plan adventures around particular characters. The world exists independently of them, full of conflict, cataclysm and intrigue. Situations will resolve for better or worse without hero involvement. If they do get involved they have a chance of imposing their will upon the world, but it won'...

Borrowings from The Dark Crystal movie?

I noticed that the Hamakei description is eerily like that of the Skeksis in The Dark Crystal, and the Jib-jib is like the furry Fizgig. However is there a FF version for the Mystics, and indeed any of the other creatures of Thra like the Striders or Pod People?

Size Categories and Definitions

In the rulebook for the spell Animate: The spell will otherwise last for two minutes, although this may be extended by one minute for each additional magic point extended. A medium sized object may be animated with the expenditure of 2 additional magic points, a large object for an additional 4 and ...

Re: Proposed Revised Social Standing Table

Perhaps before the break-up of Irritarria there were more sophisticated social structures, e.g. Atlantis and it's colonies on the mainland. As a side-note I see parallels with Robert E. Howard's Thurian Age (i.e. Pre-Hyboria) with its pre-cataclysmic Atlantis-dominated political map. Atlantis:---a s...

Re: [New Magic Item] Tarnhelm

Nice job! A very powerful artifact indeed. Have you thought about an adventure or campaign concept around it? Not yet for integration into the Titan milieu. Suggestions are most welcome! :) P. 23 of the rulebook has a little illo of a helm that may have been inspired by Wagner's Tarnhelm, now that ...

It does indeed sound harsh, but I got that from the "Hiding Situation Table" (p. 55). If sound/smell enters into the equation, then that would warrant smaller penalties, IMO.
