The Advanced Fighting Fantasy RPG was given a 2nd Ed in 2011 by Arion Games, and since then has gone from strength to strength not only in the number of books released (13 so far) but also in terms of fans of the game.
Arion Games has used Kickstarter to get several AFF2e books onto the market. Some campaigns have been to develop the book (as with Stellar Adventures) and have taken some time to come to completion, whereas others (Beyond the Pit) have been very simple campaigns.
We now have another book to offer to fans of the Fighting Fantasy world: The Titan herbal. This book will contain a comprehensive guide to Herbs and Herbalists on the world of Titan.
This 90 page book has been written by Andrew Wright (of Beyond the Pit fame) and contains:
* New AFF2e Rules
* Sample Hero Archetypes
* 255 Herbs of Titan
* Stats for Plant Monsters
* Random Tables
* Price Lists
Invaluable for any AFF2e campaign,this book will soon become a must have at every gaming table.
The book is written and laid out, the artists (every one a classic FF illustrator) have given approval for the re-use of their art and a test copy is imminent. All we need to do to get this out there is pay the artists...
To that end, we will share the pdf with backers as soon as we reach the funding goal, and we will order the books on the day we receive the KS funds. Therefore physical books should be reaching customers within a month of the KS campaign ending!
Like some of our other campaigns, we are keeping this one simple. There are no Leatherbounds, "super-pledge" levels and so forth. This campaign will get the funding, send the pdf's and ship the books.
Risks and challenges
There are very few risks associated with this project. The book is written and laid out, and before the project ends a test print will have been done to ensure the printed books are correct.
The artists have agreed to the use of the art, they simply need to be paid.
