Re: More on Scifi AFF2

Yeah; obviously playtesting etc can take a bit of time, but I really don't think SciFi AFF should be that massive a project: mostly just adding some technology skills and equipment, and rules for vehicle & space combat (which should be very similar to the existing combat system). Keep everything lig...

Re: Beyond the Pit reviews

Decent review. I understand why people object to overt caricatures of historical or present-day peoples in fantasy worlds (e.g. the notorious pygmies in Warhammer), and in general I also think it should be avoided because it's lazy, unimaginative and often offensive. However I think the Mamliks are ...

Re: Gundobad location finally revealed

I subscribe to the view that Gundobad is from a different (earlier) period of Titan's history.

Re: Spell cards

Agree that would be excellent. Having seen how they work for powers in d&d, I've come round to cards as a really useful play aid.

Re: Splitting up SKILL

That nostalgic feel counts for a lot! But splitting SKILL is no big deal - it doesn't really affect actual play much at all after chargen. I like your idea for extending starting values in other playable species, based on the info in OotP.

Re: Splitting up SKILL

Some very interesting ideas. Splitting SKILL is a commonly suggested house rule, and pretty much all previous attempts to update or revise AFF have done it. I also divide SKILL in two: STRENGTH and ABILITY - see my house rules here: http://www.arion-games.com/bb/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=588. Nevertheles...

Re: Question about the language skill

Fluency in a language just means you speak/comprehend it as well as a typical native speaker. So I think plenty of scope for further proficiency..

Re: Changing Critical strikes and combat

Some great ideas here, and I look forward to trying them out & thinking about them. I have also played around with more advanced combat options & mechanisms, and there was quite a lot of discussion of this a couple of years ago when the system were first published. The approach I have come round to ...

Re: Clarification on "HOW" sorcery spell.

My view would it would give vague indications of direction. Reading the description again, it seems HOW is intended to give the caster insight ('a psychic nudge') into a question about the immediate future, not a general more distant one. So a choice at a junction, but not more specific information ...

Re: The arcane fighter

Do you see them in Titan - maybe the Old World? Or some other setting perhaps.
