Re: Kaiju and Mecha in Pan-Pacifica

Add my vote to no column. Primarily, it just doesn't fit in genre. Mecha vs. Kaiju are heroic, super-human forces. The whole notion is that people just can't affect Kaiju... only another Kaiju can. Even if you fire missiles from a destroyer, somehow those missiles don't work against kaiju. But if th...

Re: Fires of Ra Discussion and Questions

I have to say I agree. As a player, whenever we defeat an enemy, it gets annoying when - no matter how third rate or unimportant the enemy is - they're likely to get brought back. It's one thing with a Nemesis. It's another with... everything. I don't know that I'd go all the way to dark noir. The n...

Re: God Box Review - FULL OF SPOILERS

I find player comments on the meta structure to be somewhat irritating - it's akin to going to a horror movie and shouting "no don't split up" at the screen. I don't know, TORG is all about metagaming. We strongly reward players who pull out funny movie quotes that fit the situation. You ...

Re: God Box Review - FULL OF SPOILERS

The God Box isn't to hold Lanala, but Huitzilopochtli, the Atecan darkness device that thinks it is a god. This makes it a moral delemma of helping Quetzalcoatl so that Baruk Kaah doesn't take the entire realm of Azteca. The Aztecans and edeinos will be fighting each other in Chichzen Itza, allowin...

Re: God Box Review - FULL OF SPOILERS

Getting the right balance is immensely hard, particularly given page count limits. One option would be to stick to the core count, and then shift any additional content to *unofficial* and unedited online supplements (reduces publishing costs, lowers editing and formatting costs). WOTC has done that...

Re: God Box Review - FULL OF SPOILERS

Separately, two followup points: 1) Examples of good open sandbox adventures... I'd suggest Waterdeep. http://www.enworld.org/forum/content.php?5593-Pulling-off-a-Dragon-Heist-in-Waterdeep&page=2 There are discussions about choosing the villain, altering the plot, and different ways of engaging ...

Re: God Box Review - FULL OF SPOILERS

Any good examples of published adventures like this? I'm not being facetious. Having a non-linear adventure that is actually published publicly that's intended for a large audience is...not straightforward. (ha!) Sandbox adventures are hard to write, and especially hard to write well. One of the re...

Re: Issues with Flight circumventing encounters

Consider, perhaps, that if players sacrifice combat abilities to take situational powers or skills that let them bypass non-combat obstacles, then they should be rewarded for those choices when those situations occur. Otherwise, it's telling the players: "Whatever you do isn't going to change w...

God Box Review - FULL OF SPOILERS

Just in case the title wasn't clear, this entire thread is full of spoilers... so, you've been warned. Stop now. Here be dragons. . . . . . Rather than walk through the plot, I will break this down into three basic sections: The Good, The Not So Good, and the I Don't Know. Obviously these are just o...
