Customer comments:

‘looks very cool. Reminds me of that other game – battle hammer....war mallet....whatever. Also the old "choose your path" adventure books.’

‘This is a fantastic hybrid of Fighting Fantasy and WFRP 1st ed., both extremely nostalgic for me. Cracking little game and easy to hack!’

‘I really like some of the design decisions you made. Every game should have your rule: “any situation not covered in the rules, roll a D6.” Career choices are great, every skill for everybody is fascinating, and going statless is bold. Everything is old school and dead simple. Can’t wait to run the game.’

I can't post a review here, because I'm a creator, but I did post one in my blog:

https://artifactsandrelics.blogspot.com/2020/11/its-time-to-write-more-reviews-because.html

I really love this game. I've been using it to run Deep Carbon Observatory, converted to these rules. It's not perfect, but the imperfections are easily remedied, and they are also part of the charm.

The main thing I would change about the rules is how magic works. It's just a bit too punitive. The Stamina cost for spells makes them very expensive to cast. Even though there are several combat-oriented spells, they are all worse value propositions than a sword swing. I've decided to add a Willpower trait as an analog to Stamina. That trait can also be affected by stress and magical effects. Even with that, magic is fairly low-key.

Also, it would be nice to have rules for movement, falling and poison, but it's surprising how easy it is to work around their absence. The latter two can be expressed...See more

I became aware of this game by chance. I saw the Warpstar game and was interested. As looked into it to see if I thought I might like it I found out about Warlock. I purchased both and had the pleasure of reading both over the last six or seven days. I am glad I picked up both games. I look forward to playing them.

Thank You

p81: even with armour and a shield, being struck will always cause at least 1 point of Stamina loss?
If the deductions would reduce the damage to 0, treat it as 1?

That's right, stamina represents health and, well, stamina, so even if your shield takes the blow, that's still a whack that makes your arm shake and eventually go numb...

WARLOCK RPG – ZOMBIES:

Type: Otherworldly (undead).
Actions/round: 1.
Weapon/Skill/Damage: Weapons or unarmed/2 or 3/-
Armour: Armour.
Adventuring skills: 2.
Stamina: 9 or 10.
Notes: Puppet.
Typically under the command of a Necromancer or lich.

Zombies might be unarmed and swarm their targets, or might have a hand weapon (club, short sword).
The GM can decide upon this. Perhaps having a group of unarmed zombies and 1-5 zombies armed.

Hi, I may have missed it, but I can’t see in the rules when a character replenishes Luck? Is it the same as AAF, in between adventures?

And I’m enjoying the mashup of AAF and WHFRP, it’s a nice lite flavoursome set of rules.

Is there any possibility of seeing a softcover POD of this? Hardcover POD's lack the main advantage usually associated with hardcovers (sewn bindings) and are generally less sturdy (but more expensive) than softcovers making them a less attractive product at a higher cost.
So a softcover option would be lovely.

The tick marks are a little unclear, so I'm guessing: / means it is a career skill but below max level and X is a career skill that meets or exceeds max skill level? Also, any thoughts on how a d20 PbtA result table would work with Warlock? For example, Talislanta uses 20 as a critical success, then there's the partial success, fail and fumble. Have you experimented with, "Well, you didn't roll a 20, but..."

Robert B August 09, 2020 1:35 am UTC

The slash is to mark the career skills capped at 10; the X is for the skills capped at 12.

I haven't tried that, but I suspect it would be easy to implement. Robert B has is right with the / and X.

Lots of neat ideas in this little book!

I have found a couple of things that probably were missing in copy editing. Where would be the best place to report them? (i.e. should I just put them here in the comments or send them somewhere)

Format
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
