Re: Transformation (what does it look like in your games?)

The Everlaw of One likes to take the path of least resistance, so I imagine the smallest number of physical changes possible are made in a Transformation...no new house is built, but if the transformed grew up inside the now invaded area, memories of those around may be altered. Skills should only b...

Re: What defense do I use?

Quick point on Bayonets, a rifle with a bayonet is not going to be used as a club in melee. Many low tech rifles can't be fired once a bayonet is attached, but higher tech weapons, like the M16, are designed to be fired at one opponent then stashed at another as one's foxhole is breached. It is perf...

Re: When do you allow subplots to be played in combat?

I think I recall a movie which epitomized the "OMGa What did I just do?!" feeling from a poorly thought out Romance play...

But some of you might be too young to remember King Kong.

Re: Creative Interpretation of Text as Given – Reality-Rated Individuals in Untouched Cosms

As to your other point, in my mind pretty much all possibility/ reality skill stuff is unconscious from the POV of the character, including modern-day Possibility War Storm Knight characters. That's how the old novels were written and I suppose that informs my perception of how it works. Though I i...

Re: Creative Interpretation of Text as Given – Reality-Rated Individuals in Untouched Cosms

Up front, overall Eternity is a stronger game than Old TORG...easier to teach, faster play, and such. Much of this is because of the changes I dislike--losing the "minigames", simplifying Interaction attacks; you know, the changes the rest of the players love (possibly excluding Utsukushi)...

TORG-bloops?

I suspect many of the readers of this forum will be familiar with the "Bloopwatch". For those who don't know, it was/is a site dedicated to actual news items with direct Lovecraftian connections...the Bloop was a sound picked up on undersea listening devices, thought to be organic in origi...

Re: Creative Interpretation of Text as Given – Reality-Rated Individuals in Untouched Cosms

This is one of the changes I dislike from Old to Eternity. It was stated that as written, there were never any Reality rated individuals in Eternity Core Earth before :evil: the invasion. In fact, every suggestion on how to allow for pre-invasion R-rated individuals has been ignored or shot down (my...

Re: Is there a demolitions skill?

For placed, set, and triggered explosives, either by trap, time delay, or remote detonation, I strongly suggest Science...or a relevant Profession. Thrown explosives with contact, proximity, or preset time fuses (ie. grenades) use Missile Weapons. Fired, launched, or machine flung explosives ("...

Re: Is Psionic Technology possible...?

The miracle behind Chanukah basically enhanced a tech object...everful oil reserves. Pain powered items in Tharkold are essentially useing psychic energy. Using the old TORG spell creation system, my cyberwitch could create spells to enhance her 'ware; and my CE witch created spells to enhance mirac...

Re: House rule so PCs can own personal vehicles -- thoughts?

As things stand now , I am strongly in favor of your addition to Speed Demon, because I think Speed Demon as it stands doesn't really give you anything . But, as noted above, Deanna has said it might be a "stepping stone Perk", and I am prepared to accept that when we see where it's going...
