I expect it to be all four combined.

Looks good.

As a matter of interest, have you thought about looking at sci fi FF books and adopting rules from them? I am sure we have seen psionics and vehicles rules?

Not sure I understand - I agree the modifiers apply to both situations, but would you use an opposed roll even when the target was unaware? Yes. Just like you roll for a melee attack of which you are unaware, i.e. with a hefty penalty. The point being is that though you may be unaware of the attack...

This is a perennial debate in RPGs. I am happy for an opposed roll, but I agree that I would require Dodge in instances where it made sense. However, the existing modifers already cover situations where a defender is unaware, so I would use those.

Our group was just complaining about how hard AFF2 was compared to AFF where a starting warrior could have Skill 12 Stamina 24 and Swords 4! and in Stamina spell :) The thing to remember is that PCs have to resource manage over long periods of time. As such, though they may have advantage in most fi...

It is a bit of a shame that the introductory adventure had to exemplify everything that is awful about old school dungeon design (a restaurant for the other dungeon beasts, please?) I know there is loving humour directed at the old gamebooks here, but kids just won't get it. What captivated me abou...

Hmm.. That gets me thinking about a SciFi extension to AFF..!
Doing House of Hell has mademe think of a Modern Horror extension to AFF too :)

The same applies for the Hosue of Hell. The book is a deadly masterpiece of structure. Though it feels like you can go anywhere in the house (not just in one direction like most FF books) it will still be nice to have the freedom for the PCs to try different ways to make it around the maze-like inte...

Yes, I meant no offence. It was just my opinion, and I would get so frustrated with things in that. However the original books were great! (Btw I wasn't talking about the original series, I loved those, I meant the Lone Wolf multiplayer ones) Cool. Coincidentally, I find that the LWMPG in many ways...

I am nearing the completion of House of Hell. I also used a map made by a fan reading through original FF book too. I have been cutting and pasting sections out of a scan of the original book and grouping them by location. Its a long task but it gives me a good description of the location and option...

I'm currently getting to grips with the magic rules but so far I think it's a pretty cool system. Way better than the Lone Wolf RPG system if you ask me! Its cool to love AFF2 without hating on LWMPG, which have very similar roots (though are currently doing two very different things). The fanbase ...

Alternative Unopposed Checks: I think there is a mistake. In order to get the same probability as the "roll under or equal" method the target number of the "roll over or equal" should be 14, not 15. True, but the example in the book assumes a SKILL of 7 and a Special Skill of 1. So the target numbe...
