Re: Bring on the Nile mono-treader!

Huh, I've seen fictional vehicles based on that but never realized it was real at one point.

Re: Advice on this antag

Perhaps his company provides information security to Core Earth nations/militaries/whatever but his company has been infiltrated/compromised by Kanawa. As a result, the security software has backdoors for Kanawa to exploit. He isn't necessarily complicit, but will do anything keep information about ...

Re: Viruses, bacteria, and contradictions

Well we already have a Tech 24 contagion out there. The current situation seems to be that it's dormant in lower tech zones. Or given that there aren't jiangshi outbreaks in France or Russia, maybe it's even cosm-specific.

Re: Nile Empire Preview #3 - Mathematics and Engineering

I think Wotan was asking if a character could take both Spellcaster and Mathematics and/or Engineering (or not?). Since they all use the same skills, there's some useful synergy there.

Re: Spartans in Torg Eternity

That's still one of the things that disappoints me in Torg Eternity , the fact that the Delphi Council (and hence the Spartan Division) are the good guys. What does it say about the fact that Storm Knights in TE need to have all this help from the Delphi Council and their other operatives? It's jus...

Re: Reality 0

I've noticed some reality-rated foes not having the reality skill. I had always assumed that was an oversight and just gave them +1 reality when they rolled to soak. If reality could be rolled unskilled (but not by ords), then there is no issue with the published villains with no adds in reality. D...

Re: Reality 0

As for using Reality unskilled, if possible, ords can't do it because they're ords. Being reality rated is more than an add in a skill - stormers still get possibilities and have a much higher wound threshold.

Part Two On their way to the secret lab from which they were to retrieve the data and (optionally) rescue the scientists, the spetsnaz squad drove past the famous Worker and Kolkhoz Woman statue , which sat atop a museum.

Re: Tharkold Day One

Part One Amidst the heavy rain and wind, the soldiers reported in at a forward base in Elektrogorsk, 75 km east of the capital. The base looked like it was being packed up and moved further away from the city. The squad was escorted to a room in the command center, where they were handed sparse bri...

Tharkold Day One

A little while back I ran the Tharkold Day One scenario for my players, who had never heard of Torg before. The story starts here , but I'll summarize the session in this thread. The players picked Dead-Eye, Oversight, Drivetrain, and Stitches, which completely surprised me. I figured Prowler, at th...
