Re: Saving the world in the age of surveillance

I haven't looked into Torg recently so apologies if this is out of touch with where it's going. One of the problems in the real world when you have information is... it's just information. It doesn't act or react on it's own. When you grab tons of it, you have a hard time finding the bits you need. ...

Re: TDE - Revelations from Heaven

I think Eric is correct. This sounds like a style difference. I don't think it's reasonable to expect my players to come up with some creative outside-the-box solution every time things get difficult. It's great when it happens but I don't need a system this rules heavy to run a game where that's th...

Re: TDE - Revelations from Heaven

Julianwolfe has moslty summarized things pretty well. I'll just add a few bits so you can see what was going on from my side of the table as well. I don't know if this is particularly useful to anyone but it may give some context at least. Overall I found parts of the module interesting but a lot of...

Re: TDE - Revelations from Heaven

Thanks! Sorry to ask for the same thing in a different topic, my search-fu failed I guess.

Re: TDE - Revelations from Heaven

I picked up a physical copy of this adventure from my local game store. It seems to indicate in the dark text box on page 12 and again on page 48 that at least some of the player handouts would be available on http://www.ulisses-us.com but I can't seem to find them anywhere. The text refers specific...

Re: PDF Error Collection Thread

On page 285 Property Knowledge is described as requiring primary attribute of the tradition at 15 in it's description but it's listed as 14 in the table on the same page. Also on page 285 Magical Signs refers to the skill "Painting and Drawing" but it should actually be the craft skill Art...

Re: Monster Rating?

There really can't be a rating system for a skills system like this one. Or at least it'll never work very well. People run and play the game in different ways. One group might wind up in combat fairly often while another uses skills, roleplay and anything else available to avoid fights wherever pos...

Re: Spells & Visualization

That would make sense but what you've described sounds like a witch casting a spell. Inconspicious gestures and incantations are one of the big benefits of that tradition. But it's professions in the elven tradition and the gulid mage tradition that have Bannbaladin. And they require magical gesture...

Spells & Visualization

Been meaning to ask this for awhile now, but I've run into a bit of a problem sorting out how some of the spells seem to work. The rules are fine on their own but for a small number of them they don't make much sense when I try to fit them into a scene. I'll use Bannbaladin for my example but I'm pr...

Re: Just bought the pdf so I've some questions

You pay for both sets of skill ranks so you get them both. You'd have body control 6. Skill applications are just subsets of the skill. Unless they're listed at the very beginning of the skill description under "Use:" above the "Check:" you just get them. You can read New Applica...
