Re: What does a Torg Eternity Ninja look like?

What I meant by pacing was just that I feel like the way her abilities work, frontloaded to the very first round, are so counter to what I love about Torg combat, the increasing tension and then victory against all odds feel, that I personally disliked that aspect of the character as a GM and worri...

Re: What does a Torg Eternity Ninja look like?

Balance wasn't the problem though, it's more pacing. Torg is designed so that the first couple of rounds feel hard. As you get cards in your pool, it gets easier and you come back and are a badass. Huh. From my side, that was one of the things I remember admiring about her -- that "front loadi...

Re: What does a Torg Eternity Ninja look like?

Some Living Land gear is expensive enough that I took it as code for “you can’t have this”. Like the Life Lance is relatively cheap for a “Sacred” item at $250K, but it’s still 25 times what the Wealthy Perk gets you. I assume things like that are intended to be plot items or potentially gear for v...

Re: What does a Torg Eternity Ninja look like?

That could work. The character I posted was the wife of an Ion Gosoku samurai and her secret order was sworn to protect the samurai when they got in over their heads and to do the dirty work of assassination and sabotage when required, so thematically they were much like a covert branch of the elect...

Re: What does a Torg Eternity Ninja look like?

Mika, Gargoyle's ninja posted earlier, was totally a Stealth-based ninja and she was awesome and looked like fun to play. That Stalker Perk was cool - one of those things that edges up on abusive in the right hands (and Mika definitely had the right hands!) but not quite crossing the line given tha...

Re: What does a Torg Eternity Ninja look like?

The greatest trick the Ninja ever pulled was convincing the world they didn't exist. Even U.S. doesn't believe they exist. (ducks) It's ok. I am definitely doing one for the Backer Archetypes. If someone else wants to do one, would love to coordinate on history/backstory! Wouldn't have to be the sa...

Re: What does a Torg Eternity Ninja look like?

Thanks for sharing. That's a really interesting build. I wouldn't have thought of taking Wealthy. But as you pointed out, equipping a Ninja can get expensive. I'm looking at more of a Snake-Eyes inspiration. Especially in Pan-Pacifica, I want to give her a gun as well. Might have to stick with a Gl...

Re: For 4-case contradiction what can you do?

Is every normal attack also a contradiction check? In the FAQ it says you disconnect immediately and do not hit. So, spending a possibility is pointless? Right? Sorry I just am trying to make sure I understand this correctly. Every skill roll including attacks can be a contradiction if using a tool...

Re: What does a Torg Eternity Ninja look like?

Here is one I ran. https://i.imgur.com/rjBahXp.jpg Stalker perk from the Ruins of the LL supplement seemed like the best fit. I would have liked for more perk options to fight dirty in the middle of a scene though. Trick is a must IMO but you start running into the difficulty of having so many attri...
