Re: What is your favourite sci-fi FF gamebook?

Starship traveller.
I loved that you had a massive ship with a crew you could command.
I later made my own custom game based on starship traveller with ship boarding combat rules, variations of ship types and new weapons.

Space assassin comes in 2nd.

Darksouls back again

Hey guys, I've been gone for a while and decided to come back again. My AFF2 story got stopped and my group wanted to run d&d 5th ed sadly for me. The forum and AFF has always been on my mind because I had stuff I wanted to share but was so busy I didn't have time to contribute. I wrote a bunch of s...

Re: Another look at SKILL

. The idea of giving Special Skills at 0 is interesting but it makes them only slightly less good at whatever it is than someone with it at 1. So maybe if you're being tough on use of skills without having them as above then you just let them start with a few more at 1? The enemies you faced had a ...

LOL! I've heard both words used but in Canada and the states I think Cell is used more often then mobile. When I was in asia I heard the term mobile a lot.
Not in Jail. Don't worry :D

Re: AFF being stopped?

All is OK! I do need to re-do the AFF page, but the past couple of months have been so busy (as many of you will know) that i have just not had chance. As things slow down this month, i will get the website finished, the freebies back up etc. Great! I had a sigh of relief upon reading this. I don't...

Re: Red-Eyes = cursed or mutated Sightmasters?

There is a very, very interesting explanation for the red eyes in the khare city port of traps app game. Tell me if you would like me to tell you it. Spoilers and all that.

Re: Another look at SKILL

I'm typing from my cell. Pardon any spelling mistakes, please. What skill represents from the game books has changed quite a bit. SKILL only represented your physical prowess with a weapon originally. Not confirmed. Anyways, it was a general indicator. The enemies you faced had a skill that represen...

Re: Dark Seeing

Hey Skinny! I agree with you on some parts. I ran a party through the Dark Chasm(from Chasms of Malice) and I did a lot of darkness effects on the players. I'm not sure how I feel about Dark vision. I can understand why Dwarves would get it but not elves. I thought elves should just get enhanved sen...

I'm back. Chaos manticore and Mounted combat questions

Hey guys. Been a while. Glad to be back. Was playing 5th ed but wanted my AFF game to get going again. 2 questions here. 1) The chaos manticore in "Beyond the Pit" flngs spikes that do 2 damge each. Is that damage reduced by armour? 2) Mounted combat (pg 60) say you get a +1 bonus to attack roll if ...

Re: Luck scores for monsters

Imo, it's not needed. Assume that the monsters luck is the same as it's skill score, just like the AFF book says. Then keep track each time a spell has been cast at a monster and reduce the next spell resistance attempt by 1. Skill 12 monster who had 2 spells cast at him must roll under 10 next time...

Re: Has anyone tried the gamebook apps?

I picked up the Sorcery epic and was surprised that it was different then the actual game books. They've added a lot. For example they explain that the sorcery spells are based on a combination of stars. Each letter of a spell name, for example, FAL, is based on a constellation of stars , Figurna, A...

Has anyone tried the gamebook apps?

Hey Guys! Been really busy the last while and haven't been able to post much. I still needed my fighting fantasy fix so I downloaded Steve Jacksons "Sorcery" for my phone. I'm really impressed by it. It's not what I expected and I don't know if it's canon because there are some interesting additions...

Re: Superior items

I guess I can start with the following. These items aren't superior, but if the extra rules applied to them in a fighting fantasy Game they certainly can be. Armour and clothing can do more then just reduce damage. Breastplate, plate armour or shield: Any of these can be used to deflect a killing bl...
