Re: Different Contradictions in one action

Must have missed something: Focused Strike and Ki Strike are only tested as contradictions as Surges because they're activated after you roll damage. How exactly does this happen? The surge roll is made at the start of the turn but the activation is after the action. Is it simply the case of having ...

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

I'd think that's the sort of thing that's up to each individual table and group and doesn't need to take up page count. It's one of those things that becomes clearer after you have run the game for a while but the greater perspective would have need nice to know at the beginning and to be honest wo...

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

Darrell explained the ideology behind xp awards when we chatted to him at the UK games expo. It was a concern that veteran gamers simply didn’t have as much time to game as back when we were all teenagers and in our 20’s (at the time of oTorg). As such the game design took this into consideration in...

Re: Whirlwind + Unarmed

Did a quick find in files and found this one but admittedly not find the reference to using the tail as part of whirlwind - might well be duff memory when I ran though Day One, Delphi and God Box.

Re: Whirlwind + Unarmed

If whirlwind only applies to melee some monsters do not make sense: DRAGON Gigantic, reptilian embodiments of greed and destruction—dragons are intelligent and territorial hoarders prone to viciously attacking anyone who stumbles into their path. Attributes: Charisma 10, Dexterity 8, Mind 10, Spirit...

Re: Telekinesis errata

Is there manipulation like oTorg? Increase the difficulty to modify the effect - that sort of thing? Weak spells that are easy to cast but can be manipulated to become really impressive but with increased difficulty and risk of backlash.

Re: Breathe Fire seams really powerful

As this is breathe fire not fire hose, I would have opted for reducing the range down to 2-3 metres. Then there is a chance that the gotak could experience the rapture of a good old immolation along with those around him unless his faith was particularly strong. This would then also reduce spamming ...

Re: Breathe Fire seams really powerful

25m is quite a distance and with a faith total of 18 they can easily became something of a one-trick pony, firing it off every round with an outstanding success and quickly reducing even serious threats to charcoal without singeing their fellow stormknights. It is this sort of thing that can frustra...

Re: New ruling: Spells, miracles, psionic powers end if the target gets out of range or line of sight.

LOS and even range does sound right in some cases but not all. I suppose it comes down to where the power is focused, i.e. is there are continual stream from the caster to the target or has the effect been set on the target and now it is largely out of the control of the caster. An example of the fo...
