Question about combat: When facing multiple foes do they ALL attack each turn or do you only defend from attacks ONCE during their turn?
This hasn't really been a huge issue until the pighead fight (Fantastic forehshadowing btw I found the children's drawings first) where I'm not just facing multiple attackers, but TWO types of attackers. Does a group of enemies of the same type only attack ONCE per round? I feel like the game would be relentlessly unbeatably brutal otherwise.

How compatible is Alone Against Fear with Four Against Darkness?
Could I use a Class from 4AD in AAF?
Could I use the monsters from AAF in 4AD?

When a character dies, does it end the campaign?

not necessarily, it is up to you if you want to continue with a new character from that point or start a new one. write down how she or he dies, and where. You can create a new character as a friend of that person who goes looking for it and if you are lucky you can retrieve the former character's equipment. See rules on p.98. If you want (it is your game after all) you can extend those rules to all player character deaths, not only those caused by "infectious" monsters.

Hey I just wanted to say this is really great, I managed to succeed my first missions but was let down by one crucial flaw with the PDF: Bookmarking.

The PDF would be a lot easier to use with PDF bookmarking so every time it says "Go to X table" you could click on it or even just select it from a list of the tables/pages.
It would be even easier to use and an even better solo RPG if this could be cleaned up.

When you search for wishes and you have enough clues to find one, when you enter a new box can you both do a search for clue AND spend previous the clues to find a wish?

I do not understand what you mean with Wishes. But in general you can Search and spend Clues in the same box

Any plan to have a epub or mobi format?
Customer avatar

PUBLISHER
no, honestly these formats do not sell well compared to PDF and they are a lot of work to do, this book is 80% tables and they just do not work well in epub or mobi

Not sure I will have time to play it but I really like the concept and wanted to support the author. I also bought Advanced Song of Blades and Heroes and while I had only the time to play once to learn the rules, I also like the concept and it's great.

Full size preview returns:

"Not Found

The requested URL was not found on this server."

Don't know whether that is the publisher's problem, or DT-RPG's problem. I get the same results with other products from other sellers as well, so it could be either or both

Honestly I do not know what to do. the pdf has been loaded correctly. There is another file in the download, that is a PNG of the player's sheet. I will remove that (It is in the PDF anyway) and see if that is the thing that is causing the issue with the preview

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.
