Re: Increase Axiom

Actually I wonder if there’s any harm in a house rule where this perk increases the axiom by 2? Sure, it lets the character jump straight from Core Earth to Tharkold technology, but is that so bad? It’s CE-only, so you could customize each axiom’s increase. This way, Social and Tech only go up by 1 ...

Re: Aysle Backer Archetypes

And if Leena's the problem Which isn’t. This has been stated many times. I don’t know why people keep propping Leena up as the argument. It’s getting tiring watching you people valiantly smite these strawmen. People are deliberately ignoring the issue and throwing out whataboutisms. Solution’s simp...

Re: Aysle Backer Archetypes

If a woman has made a choice to play Leena, then its her choice, she has plenty of other options and doesn't have to play her as a scantily clad amazon. If a man plays Leena, maybe it opens his eyes to gender identity a bit. Either way, it's the players choice how they play the character. Just to b...

Re: Aysle Backer Archetypes

It’s not that showing skin is bad. It’s the message people take away from the artwork. The tee-hee expression causes them to question if the GM respects women at all. It’s all “male gaze-y” with the intentional placement of the thorns. I’ve heard enough from my comic book friends about how much of t...

Re: InfinitySpotlight

I know one complaint I’ve heard is the feeling that US hasn’t been pushing the Exchange that much. This ought to be a great step.

Re: Aysle Backer Archetypes

I like that people, especially guys, are thinking about these issues critically and with an eye toward feminism. But I disagree that artwork showing the female form in something you could see at the beach is always bad in RPGs, and these types of posts make me feel like it's thought of that way. I ...

Re: Character Portraits

If you're a prolific writer, the $250 Publisher level could be a neat way to include professional artwork into your works.

I don't write enough for that, but that's pretty cool.

Re: Aysle Backer Archetypes

I believe that Kuildeous is saying that at a Demo, we are the Ambassadors of Torg. Pretty much. Nobody in my group is going to be offended by nudity or near-nudity. That's not where my concern is. I want Torg to have a positive first experience among convention goers. Many of my friends have expres...

Re: Increase Axiom

Basically, rather than 1 point, the Storm Knights personal Axiom jumps to the next value represented on Earth. So for Magic it would go from 9 to 12 (Tharkold) to 14 (NE & CP) to 16 (Orrorsh) to 24 (Aysle). So 4 perks instead of 15. And Spirit would similarly go from 10 to 16 (CP & Orrorsh)...

Re: Aysle Backer Archetypes

Nile was actually really good, but Living Land did have some issues. (And not just the one that's just an excuse to play a girl who runs around naked. I won't pretend the character art isn't awfully cute, but I'm not sure that was a trope that needed to be reinforced. That one makes me growl a bit ...
