Re: Broken Combo?

That does sound suitably epic. :D It is curious to me that, seeing a monster in an Alpha-appropriate adventure shrug off a 36 damage attack, the response was, “MOAR DAMAGE!!1!” Rather than, maybe they’re immune to physical damage. Not a criticism, it’s just funny to me the way our brains work at ti...

Re: Broken Combo?

So, as the offending player in question, I wanted to reassure everyone that this isn't going to become a go-to type of thing for me. I've known about the potential of the combo since even before I created the character back in December '17, and she's had the ability to do it right out of the gate, e...

In other words, pathfinder can't make conclusions for you.


This is a very helpful clarification. Thanks!

Re: magic: 15, tech: 24, spirit: 0, social: 21

Social 0 is definitely the defining stat for this one. And not even going “hardcore atheist” is enough to satisfy the requirement, because atheists still understand what it is that they find ridiculous and are rejecting, but this cosm’s inhabitants literally can’t even conceive of that possibility. ...

Re: Stacking Clarification

Brawler was allowed to stack with brass knuckles back when the Luchador archetype came out. It was basically included so that someone could bring unarmed damage up to parity with a good melee weapon (+2 added to +1 = +3, along the lines of a one-handed sword), but only if they were willing to put a ...

Re: Nile Empire Kickstarter stretch goal PDFs going out

P.S. Great work on the Religions of Core Earth PDF. I've really been looking forward to seeing this one, and it didn't disappoint. Well written. I particularly like the idea of a support character having Vow of Nonviolence + the Yin and Yang miracle. Every once in awhile the storyteller will get a h...

Re: Nile Empire Kickstarter stretch goal PDFs going out

The Tanoura Dancer - page 14 ⋅ should Shield Discs defense bonus be incorporated into defense numbers? ⋅ skill table, last few cells in last column don't have background color. Ooh, that's a good point about the shield disc bonus. Maybe so. I bet including that would be easy for...

Re: magic: 25 tech: 27 spirit: 9 social: 5 - 17th May 2019

Okay, I'll throw my hat into the ring. Since no one's touched the obvious post-apocalyptic approach I'll give it a go, but with a decidedly torgified spin. If there's interest, I can post World Laws and Cosm Cards. NEW DAIROGA The Distant Past: It was an Earth much like our own, only in this one, At...

Re: GenCon2019

To anyone who wants to get together for an unofficial Torg game, we can let each other know our possible times to get together after the frenzy of ticket-buying ends tomorrow, and everyone knows what their windows of availability are. As for me, I have a six-year-old daughter who wakes me up every m...
