I will adapt another gamebook adventure by Ulysses Ai (the Hypertrout http://www.ffproject.com/trout.htm), but this time the adaptations / modifications will have to be wider than for the Dead World...

In fact even players that never heard of it before (quite often my players...) can start playing with no problem within 5 minutes and have fun.
For this reason I was very happy when I read that Calidar is a rule-less setting (although there is a kind of soft spot for D&D and some derivative...).
At the moment I'm finalizing my first mini-campaign on Calidar (starting from a remote asteroid) and necessarily I'm adapting the setting to AFF2 rulebook (and vice vers, of course!). Once I'll finish my job, if the playtesting will give a good feedback maybe I'll share the adventure in order to have some improvement suggestion.
I'd like as well to read your first Calidar adventures, if you are happy to share them on line (it would be great if you use AFF2 as well, although I'm sure that the vast majority of game masters will use other rulesets...), so we can share our experiences and find the best way to bring out the flavour of this world.
WRT AFF2 ruleset, I think that the first part of the job will be doing the write up of the various deities and related priestly powers (I'm using only one deity in the beginning, but I noticed it requires some good though...), while with creatures and stats things went reasonably smoothly (although I'm not using too many races at first...). Something that really helped me is that in Blacksand book there are a lot of naval stats and description that can be reasonably easily lifted and adapted to flying ships.
If anybody by chance uses AFF2, we can use this thread to share our experiences and decisions in adapting Calidar setting to the ruleset (and vice versa!).

Probaly I'm at three quarters of the job for Barsoom Gazetteer and one quarter for the beta-Rhinoceros thingy (both in English), but... it's so terribly time consming!!!
Sooner or later I'll finish them... now for a long while I won't have opportunities of playing, so I can concentrate a bit more on typing up...
