Re: Fires of Ra Discussion and Questions

I know I'm coming in late but a couple of thoughts. My players have no clue this is a "railroad", that is because I am introducing the scenes and clues naturally, and they are just going to the next scene. I'm not a huge believer in the railroad paradigm anyway. I think the Angry GM has it...

Re: Gauging difficulty

I think adventure design in Torg Eternity is more art than science as there are so many variables. I agree. Plus, the cards really can help with "balance" issues. The card play really swings things in favor of the players. I found in oTorg, and have been finding in TE as well, that I can ...

Re: "Small Packs Hunt Best" card (LL booster)

Honestly, I don't imagine that it's going to come up often enough that the slight delay for a single round is going to really matter. And then, when it does come up, it is really only a big time impact if there happens to be a lot of minions in play.

Re: Alternative God Box Final Scene

• Dilemmas do not result in a step being completed, but are approved actions if completed. Have I overlooked the in-story justification for this rules change? It looks random to me. Honestly, I was trying to get more cards circulating and was thinking that allowing dilemmas to do a step would let t...

Re: God Box sharing some thoughts and tips - SPOILERS

The counters for the ascent/escape is a great idea and the DSR for the Infiltration looks good. The re-written final scene looks overly complex though. Well, that just tells me that I did a bad job on the summary part :( It's actually pretty basic, the detail is really in that I tend to write out t...

Alternative God Box Final Scene

I have not playtested this or run it yet, but here's some ideas I had around making the last battle a bit more interesting.... ACT 5 Scene 3: A Contest of Reality This replaces the section “A Contest of Reality” on page 77. Note that in the section “The Opposition” the counts are the total maximum o...

Re: The God Box review (long, somewhat harsh)

Just as a minor update, my players managed to defeat the Avatars. It was pretty impressive, considering there are only two of them. That said, tehy are pretty savvy with card play, but it was still pretty intense. I also just posted some thought around an alternative last battle scene that gets all ...

Re: The God Box review (long, somewhat harsh)

It doesn't seem to me like this is meant to be a fight. It's meant to be a "rescue the slaves and GTFO". Going toe to toe with those means someone is going to die. They're not going after the PCs, they're trying to take out the pillars after which they leave. As much as I would like to, I...

Re: GOD BOX Questions/Issues - possible spoliers

No apology necessary. I was going off of faulty memory and a too-loose reading of this thread. My apologies for muddying the waters. But I think I'll still make this a static number unless my group's priest gets an 18 himself. Well, and even then, she's likely to win the Possibilities race. I agree...

Understood. That's all I can ask, and many thanks for taking the time!
