There’s a very interesting offer at “Bundle at Holding” right now for fans of Advanced Fighting Fantasy. Actually there are two offers: the “Advanced Fighting Fantasy” bundle which contains the Advanced Fighting Fantasy 2nd Edition core rules and a plethora of sourcebooks and adventures. It’s the perfect bundle for anyone interested in starting their own AFF campaign.
The “More Fighting Fantasy” bundle adds more material for Advanced Fighting Fantasy 2nd Edition but also for Stellar Adventures, the SF variant co-written by fellow RPG blogger Jonathan Hicks (check out my first look here). The bundles start at $7.95 and $9.95 respectively and can be “leveled” up” for about $20 each for additional material in the “bonus collections”.
So why should anyone pick up AFF? That’s easy. First and foremost it’s a part of British roleplaying games history. The rules are based on the ones created for the gamebooks released by Steve Jackson (the UK Steve Jackson, not the US one who created GURPS among other things) including the famous “Warlock of Firetop Mountain”. back in the day It’s also a rules-light game with old-school sensibilities which is not based on D&D. Personally I think it could be the perfect game to introduce new players to the hobby. In addition to that AFF and Stellar Adventures are perfect for online play, which has become much more common in the last years. I highly recommend checking out these bundles.
