Re: Troupe Style Play?

There are two hurdles to overcome. First off, if it does become a full-on troupe-style game, you need to work that in, and understand why it's such a rotating cast. A large group of Storm Knights forming action teams to address missions plays differently from a single group of heroes who have banded...

Re: Spartans in Torg Eternity

To make the old Spartans really work, you need to have <snipped> 2) An understanding of Possibility mechanics to realize that people inside the zone are helping the invaders, even if they don't realize it. This is a valid point, and I'm not sure when the folks from Core Earth and those in the Delph...

Re: Nile Empire Preview #1 - One Year Later...

There's also the fact that Israel has nukes. Nile Empire is just one tech level shy of that being a real concern but do we know that the High Lords have read the axiom chart? I think at one point it was said that Mobius was pushing the Tech Axiom because he wanted nukes, so I think the answer in th...

Re: Combined action mooks and Stymied

I do generally limit it to interaction attacks, because targeting a group for attacks already affects the whole group. First of all, it reduces the size of the group, but it also accumulates Shock, which means that you can end up taking out more people than you thought you were going to.

Re: XP limits for 'clearance levels'

This is definitely helpful to know. I've been playing steadily for nearly a year now (pretty much as soon as anything came out) and, even with slowing down once we hit Beta (I now give 2-5 XP, depending on the impact of the adventure), we're at 102. I expect that we'll hit Gamma right around when th...

Re: Combined action mooks and Stymied

I have two solutions: the first is to break Stymied targets off into their own smaller group for that round. That way the main group functions smoothly, while the Stymied characters aren't completely useless (you could get lucky!) However, I also find that the problem comes up less often with a hous...

Re: Release schedule?

They've said that all the cosm books are going to be set on Day 365, and they're coming out with a Beta Clearance Update so that we can integrate the big events into our campaigns. We've been told that there aren't going to be any new big rules for anything, just things that are cosm-specific, so al...

Re: Changing the Delphi Council?

As someone who is using the Delphi Council as written (or at least as I understand what's written) I haven't found it to preclude nations being antagonistic to each other. Admittedly, the game I'm running doesn't deal with a lot of diplomatic long-term consequences or political intrigue by nature of...

Re: Australia

I don't think we've heard 'invading', but I do remember a mention of a giant yokaiju attacking Sydney.

Re: [Glory Locations] In case folks are interested in sharing

I've had a whole bunch in my game. For those who want to use them, here are my Glories and stela pulls: - Pan-Pacific - Batanes Zone: Evacuated a resort from a jiangshi outbreak, saving them from the subsequent fuel-air bomb. - Pan-Pacific Stela 43: Located on an offshore solar/geothermal power coll...
