Re: Cyberpapacy Preview #2 - Cyberware

Not officially, but I'm a fan of reskinning for thematic reasons. You mean, Eavesdroppers, Tasters, Sniffers, and Vision Enhancers in oTorg are all officially deleted? Yes. The Church provides them freely as cyberware, so there's no need for them. Well, there is if you want those capabilities but d...

Cthulhu Chick Tracts

In our game, one of my players (a Core Earther cyber-anarchist with a Tech axiom boost to 26 and Cosm Adaption to the Cyberpapacy for Cybernetic Perks, has decided to leave booklets around the Cyberpapacy made from this: http://www.webring.org/l/rd?ring=discordia;id=1;url=http%3A%2F%2Fwebspace%2Eweb...

Re: Magic in Orrorsh

Somehow I was certain there was already an Occult Perk. There's a class of Perks available in Orrorsh called Occult Perks which cover things like Alchemy, Bulletsmith and even Medals that can be awarded to heroes for their actions. Among them is the Perk, Occultist but ironically it has little to d...

Re: Magic in Orrorsh

The Difficulty for this working would be Oh no, the Horrors got to him!!! The Horror of getting back to work on time which left little time to proofread and polish. But yes, the above is a basic skeleton that's pretty close to the system in the original TORG. The meat and blood of the Occult involv...

Magic in Orrorsh

One House Rule I've implemented for Orrorsh is that before a PC can get a new spell he has to find it in game. Despite the high Magic axiom, magic is hidden in Orrorsh to a large extent. To get a real, repeatable spell, you have to seek out occult bookshops, join secret societies or plunder the libr...

Re: Getting an upgrade in Argentina...

I know Malraux has some inroads into Argentina. Make sure any replacement parts have been properly disconnected from the Godnet before they get attached to you. Seriously, seriously happy for you. She doesn't have to worry about it. She's already connected to the Goddessnet, which is way more power...

Re: Cyberpapacy Preview #3 - Magic

I can see at least 2 of my players wanting to play Foresworn. The concept is great, but I would include the ability to summon and control demons (basically a demon companion). Just tell them that becoming Foresworn requires them to sell their souls to the Robot , er, Cyberpapal Devil (ie become NPC...

Re: Cyberpapacy Preview #2 - Cyberware

Not officially, but I'm a fan of reskinning for thematic reasons. The way I'm looking at it, there's the two kinds of cyberware: Churchware and Freeware. Church ware is linked to and controlled by the Church. Freeware is the "hacked" stuff that the Church can't hack/control. Churchware is...

Re: Cyberpapacy Preview #2 - Cyberware

I hope we end up with three type of cyberware. Church Cyberware (free, works fine but lets the Church spy on and control you); Perk Cyberware (works fine, bought with Perks/XP); Half-cracked Cyberware (bought with money, prone to mishaps/increased cyberpsychosis/disconnection which stops all functi...
