Re: My very first Torg purchase

I must've picked up the novel later. I remember reading the novel and was really confused why there was no cyber in the Cyberpapacy like the game books say there is.

My very first Torg purchase

I was going through my old stuff, and I dug through my Torg boxed set. At the very bottom of the box was a pristine receipt from when I bought the box. Imagine plopping down $30 ($60 equivalence today) as a kid on a game you had never heard of, especially with the internet completely unknown to me a...

Re: PC Ravagons

I'll give them the edeinos stat block with Outsider and Claws and then their two starting perks are Flight and Armor. In the interest of keeping PCs flexible, I think the Armor could be an optional perk. Just like some edeinos are tougher than others, some ravagons can be tougher than others. Or we...

Re: Mishap question

Good point on how the inviolability of 1 and 20 is ingrained in the collective gamer conscious. I've run dozens of demos at conventions and game stores. A couple of times--even after having seen how skill checks are done--a player rolled a natural 20 and stopped right there, assuming that they succe...

Re: Infiniverse Reviews

Definitely case-by-case. While the number of acts and cosm information are great ways to identify what fits well in the hole you have, I’d like a bit more on what the product is about. I’d like to know if it provides story ideas or a fully fleshed-out adventure. For example, my flagship product, the...

Re: Mishap question

Heh, I think some of my PbP players may have PTSD from fumbles in other games. When they roll a natural 1, they’ve cringed and wondered what evil thing I’m going to inflict on them. I mean, I did inflict some evil things on them, but it wasn’t in every situation. Sometimes a natural 1 is just a natu...

Re: Perk Advancement Cost

Except in the real world if you’re “super-dedicated” to Dexterity you wouldn’t put it at 6. ;) It's the second example that was "super-dedicated." The first example could've just been anybody. I presume that if someone buys a bunch of skills up to 4 adds, then that would be the super-dedi...

Re: Things you'd like to know about Tharkold

The game shows don't have to be cheesy like Running Man or Death Race. And they might have a purpose more than just entertainment. But yes, I see them more as a small part of the realm, not the whole thing. In my world, techno-demons use the game shows to find reality-rated people and suck the vril...

Re: Perk Advancement Cost

I'll just input that i LOLed when I read attribute cost was too expensive... "In my day attributes cost 3x not this new fangled 2x" But seriously, my group was awestruck when they learned attributes were only double cost instead of triple. Yeah, that change from oTorg floored me as well, ...

Re: Perk Advancement Cost

My group has increased attributes. Numerically, there comes a point where it pays off, especially for Dexterity. If you have these adds: + 4 Ranged Combat + 2 Up-close Combat + 5 Dodge then it would cost 14 XP to increase them all. If your Dexterity is 6, then it's worth it to bump that up for the s...
