Re: Nile Empire En Media Res

My favorite use of In Medias Res was in a spy game where I started people off with their characters falling out of a crashing airplane, with one of them lacking a parachute, ala "Moonraker." Generally speaking, the purpose is to skip the "boring" stuff like the briefing get the p...

Re: Fires of Ra Discussion and Questions

We're two sessions into Act I and we're having a blast! The wall-to-wall action is pretty densely packed into those 5 scenes that make up Crime City. If I had any player complaint it was that the Plasma-Bots had too high a Toughness for how many there were (with 5 players that's 15 of them robots). ...

Re: New/Old Conversions for Eternity

Here's some tables I made comparing Ability Scores and Skill Adds in oTorg and TorgE - these are probably the most applicable things to use in converting NPCs from one system to the other, with the awareness that you'll need to eyeball things and go with your gut when things don't make sense. Hope p...

NPC Stat Guidelines

Here's some NPC stat guidelines I've been working on, based on what's been released so far. Its a work in progress and can certainly be improved upon by smarter math people. AVERAGE PERSON SKILL RATINGS 5 (weak) and 10 (strong) (average 7) (ex. Normal person) Max Adds: +2? Damage: 7- TOU: 7-9 ALPHA ...

Re: New/Old Conversions for Eternity

For absolutely no good reason, I've been tinkering with a system for converting oTorg to Torg Eternity. It is by no means perfect - or even something I'd call "sane" - but its been fun to do in a nerdy sort of way. :geek: I started out with looking at the Value Charts for each, and quickly...

Re: Nile/Orrorsh Mixed Zone ideas

In my campaign we had a crossover adventure in which Dr. Sconce crafted a "fear machine" using a mix of occultism and Victorian-flavored weird science. It was more Nile than Orrorsh, really, but featured a zeppelin manned by mummies, some brains in jars, and a hunchbacked murderer working ...
