Re: Nile Empire Robot Man Archetype

The Backer Archetypes have had some of the best genre-bending and cosm-expanding characters. In some cases, to the point of: "Wait, this can be a character?!"

Great work from our community with the opportunity and guidance from the Torg staff!

Depends. Does this computer hold formulas and databases or the entire brain of a Nazi scientist?

Re: Cyberdeck - why not cyberware?

The cyberdeck works by interfacing with the user's neurons. Why then is it normal "toss in your backpack" equipment that anyone can use as opposed to cyberware? In our world - right now in 2019 - we have human-machine neural interfaces that don't need to be implanted. We're supposed to be...

Re: Breaking free of Mind Control (pulp vs psi)

Note 1: Though the reason why differs, in practice both are contradictions outside of their cosm. Note 2: For the psi power, the GM will rule on what "each turn" means out of combat.[/pre] Note 2 : Is not really correct? Turns last 10 seconds, and the description makes clear this holds ou...

Re: Orrorsh should drop a Maelstrom Bridge into New Mexico - Old West / Horror

Just a thought, but I think it would be really cool if Orrorsh dropped a Maelstrom bridge into New Mexico and created an Old West / Horror cosm. The tech axioms between Victorian and Old West are essentially the same - its just that culturally it would manifest differently in the Southwest United S...

Re: Telekinesis errata

And, how cannot you lift yourself when your telekinesis is "at range"? (If the reaction of lifting comes to psychic's physical body it prevents the psychic to lift oneself, but this opens a whole new way of levitation, telekinetically pushing somewhere downward constantly to get "kic...

Re: Beta Doesn't seam to be a big enough deal

Beta is a little weird because the GM gets a big power boost while players just get access to powerful new perks which they may not really want or need, or be able to afford right away. So it can feel like a nerf for some a buff or a wash for others. But in reality it's mostly just a milestone. You...

Re: What defense do I use?

You’re literally knocking away the gun with your weapon/shield/hand to make it miss. That close up you can’t move fast enough to get out of the way of the shot before it hits you. That makes sense! I was even picturing a scuffle of grabbing the muzzle to try and push it away, as we so often see in ...

Re: What defense do I use?

I always imagine melee defense as parrys and blocks. If you watch a boxing match, half the time people get out of the way, the other half they block body shots with their arms. Those are all unarmed defense. It's melee defense if they grab a folding chair and block with that (or any object used to ...

Re: Three Glories

Although it feels like a lot of the 'alignment' restrictions have been phased out in the new version - there's no 'Good/Evil' mechanic for Nile Empire or 'Honour/Corruption' for Aysle. Although I guess you might be bringing these in the sourcebooks. Alignments are phased out, probably because they'...
