Re: Aysle Preview #4 - Uthorion

I was surprised by the reality perks but I forgot that Mobius had one as well. I suppose it makes sense that the High Lords have access to the secrets of reality; what’s amazing about Core Earth is that “average” stormers there have those abilities too. +7 armor?!? I think the highest we’ve seen to ...

Re: Creative Interpretation of Text as Given – Reality-Rated Individuals in Untouched Cosms

Huh, I forgot about the Nile backer adventure. So, both cosm-focused GenCon games have referenced the Space Gods. Is that going to continue, with the GenCon adventures revealing tidbits of history in the game world? How does it tie in with the upcoming Relics of Power adventure, if at all?

Re: Creative Interpretation of Text as Given – Reality-Rated Individuals in Untouched Cosms

It was my impression that, from the Day One adventures, pre-transcendence PCs could use cards but not the Hero or Drama cards. So yeah, the protagonists have some neat tricks but they're missing the biggest guns from the deck. Not to mention the ability to soak damage. After all, one of most notable...

Re: Creative Interpretation of Text as Given – Reality-Rated Individuals in Untouched Cosms

It's also possible that the things that are eternity shards now were enchanted or sacred objects back in the day. So I don't see any inconsistencies there. The only inconsistency for me is the existence of creatures that are always possibility-rated. Has every dragon made a moral choice in the face ...

Re: Share your Torg Eternity characters and archetypes!

Dr. Montana Smith , Starting PC Watching the Indiana Jones movies on Netflix brought about this... Of course, it's hard to capture an accomplished solo character as a starting PC in a group RPG. I thought the character should be well-rounded which is good in some respects and not great in others - ...

Re: Is there a demolitions skill?

Explosives are in the Heavy Weapons table in the Gear chapter, so presumably they use that skill. I would probably use Heavy Weapons/Mind instead of /Dexterity for those kinds of weapons, though that isn't stated anywhere in the rules I don't think.

Re: Share your Torg Eternity characters and archetypes!

The Unhittable Halfling , Starting PC Just messing around with what one could do with the keefee species and its slightly higher-than-normal Dexterity maximum. The character has a turtle shell shield, a knife made from a fang, and a blowgun with a lot of poison darts. But more than that, they have ...

Re: Interaction Attacks

It's the static skill number, not a contest - see 2nd paragraph on page 115 of the core rulebook. See also the last paragraph on page 108.
