Thank you for the kind words, mate. I’m getting much better after my stroke.
Yes, you can play an automaton! You’ll find all the information, we well as a new League just automatons, in the Globetrotter’s Guide to London book.
Sorry for the delay in replying!
You’re welcome, mate!
It’s until the user’s next turn begins. Then you have to use it again to gain the bonus once more.
Simply because Facebook gives a better reach than the forum and multiple conversations need monitoring, which takes time. 90% of what we say is fixed, in that we’re telling you what will be in HF2, not asking. That will form part of the campaign page. A small amount is advisory discussion in that we’ll ask opinions before we make a final decision on certain things. That part we will discuss here as well, but in chunks rather than every day.
Sorry for the delay answering!
They affect all action rolls.
AFO (p.107): “When your character’s Health falls below 0, he suffers penalty dice equal to his negative Health rating to all actions…”
LOA (p.119): “When your character’s Health falls below 0, he suffers penalty dice equal to his negative Health rating to all actions…”
In general terms, HF is a priority, but not our top priority – that’s reserved for a different project. We’ll be starting to discuss things in more solid terms when we begin to get new art ordered over the next few months. 🙂 Likely it will be 2020 before the book is out.
We’ll be adding material from across the existing books into the core books and officially removing some previous core material. Any material not included in the new book will be considered non-canonical until we decide to revise it.
If we want HF to reach a new generation of gamers, multiple books won’t get us very far – stores much prefer single books as they’re easier to sell than telling a potential customer. Pathfinder and D&D have that market clout, but we don’t. The Kickstarter campaign may allow us to offer backers player-only books for their group, but there won’t be a Player’s Guide entering the retail chain.
Right now, our plan is to revise the three core books into one volume and see what happens next. It won’t be a reprint with SWADE changes. There will be changes.
