Re: Converting Exile to AFF

Exile Alchemy Conversion As a part of my item conversion of Exile to AFF, I have completed the Alchemy conversion. Basically, Exile Alchemy is equivalent to AFF Herbalism. It includes Ingredients, the various potions and poisons that can be made from them, the recipes to make them, and a New Special...

Re: Converting Exile to AFF

Thoughts in progress. Quests: Obviously, the main quest/campaign should be the hunt for a way to Escape the Cavean underworld. But what about everyone else? Would characters want to help the Cavean people with their problems? Defeat a few demons, bash a few giants? Save a town from a plague of giant...

Re: Converting Exile to AFF

Geography of Cavea part 1 Given that most newcomers to Cavea arrive (via the Taker, the random magical portal) in Entrance, in the Kingdom of Cavea, I thought it important to begin describing the geography there. First of all, Cavea is a...wait for it...CAVE! It may extend for many kilometres, but a...

Re: Converting Exile to AFF

Converting Weapons and Armour from Exile to AFF Exile's weapons and armour have specific material levels, related to the Exile games' levelling and game progression. Therefore, a Stone Shortsword is not as effective as an Iron Shortsword, if only because an Iron Shortsword will be less likely to sha...

Re: Converting Exile to AFF

Cavean Dragons Cavea, being underground, may not seem the place to find dragons, creatures of the air that they are. Their occupancy of Cavea began long before the Taker began its work, and may long continue. To Titanner scholars who have come to Cavea, the native dragons are very much like the drag...

Re: Converting Exile to AFF

Life in Cavea, v1, Continued. Religion Aside from the penitent doctrines of the Taker, and the hopeful doctrine of the Returner, Caveans look to a vast collection of gods to make their lives better, or at least, prevent them being worse. Titanners give their prayers to Throff of the Earth, Lorodil o...

Re: Converting Exile to AFF

Thoughts and Notes in Progress I have gotten permission from Spiderweb Software, as long as I don't officially publish this Cavea project anywhere else, to use specific information from the Exile games. Life in Cavea, v1 Cavea, so named by the inhabitants, has been occupied by the unfortunates gathe...

Re: Converting Exile to AFF

Alrighty, then, one Exile-to-AFF Monster Conversion List, as promised. It's very rough. It is literally a list, and you WILL need the AFF bestiaries for reference. But almost every monster and non-named NPC is present and comparisons found or made, or alterations made. All suggestions welcome!

Re: Converting Exile to AFF

Monsters Before working my way through the conversion of Exile's monsters into AFF, I wanted to discuss Exile's intelligent beings, and where they might fit. Aside from humans, goblins, ogres, giants, the occasional dragon, demons (nearly all fire-based, conversion obvious), there are four other mai...

Re: Converting Exile to AFF

Overnight notes/thoughts in progress. Exile was based around the premise of undesirable characters getting shoved through a portal to the cavernous underworld by the un-diverse Empire and then trying to escape and make a new home on the surface. To make the underworld possibly connected into Titan, ...

Re: Converting Exile to AFF

Yes, that's the game. First game I ever played, as Shareware on a fourth-hand '98, was Exile:Escape from the Pit. And its sequels, including the moddable, now open source, Blades of Exile. Anyways, as promised, the first of my attempted conversions, of the Priest spells to AFF. I welcome all suggest...

Converting Exile to AFF

Somewhere on this forum, someone suggested maybe converting the old Exile PC games from Spiderweb Software into pen and paper AFF. I don't know if someone's tried, but this will be where I'll post my attempts. Disclaimer: The Exile PC games are not my intellectual property, they are the intellectual...

Re: Solo Guide

Would this guide include an adventurer motivation generator? It's a bit hard to create an adventure without a motivation for why I, or the character, should care about what's happening, or even about going adventuring. Specific goals, like "gather ten thousand gold pieces" would be a bit nicer than ...

Re: Wages and Services

My militiaperson/guardperson (solo-player) on patrol around a village usually gets paid 5cp a day + meals and accomodation. However, using the wages calculations, with a starting SKILL of 6 and a Law Special Skill of 1 (which is the special skill that my guardperson is employed for), I should, in fa...
