Re: Aysle Box has shipped!

Just got mine in Iowa!

Re: Intimidating Mobs/Crowds

You know, the thought that occurred to me following the discussion, is that spells and powers don't work any better against mobs. If you want to debuff a whole mob, you generally have to multi-target. So this isn't just about Interaction Attacks, its about mobs in general. From that perspective, I f...

Re: How do you balance GM awarded Possibilities with the value of Cosm Cards?

Thanks all! Hearing the different ways it works in your groups really helps. One thing that occurred to me is that the fact we've been doing the Day 1s probably has a big effect for one particular reason: The premade characters. Since the characters start as regular people, they aren't created with ...

Re: Intimidating Mobs/Crowds

I haven't figured out a solution for how to do Interaction Attacks against mobs that I really like. If you just say that the penalty applies to the mob in general, then if you Very Stymie a mob of 5 opponents, they are now less of a threat than a single unhindered opponent. That seems wrong. On the ...

How do you balance GM awarded Possibilities with the value of Cosm Cards?

When I first started running Torg (using the Day 1s, in case that is relevant) I was pretty generous with awarding Possibilities, with probably the average player getting, say, 2, or even 3 per session. They used them to do cool stuff, not just to Soak or improve essential rolls. However, I eventual...

Re: Cyberpapacy Sourcebook Preview Discussion

I just wanted to say that I love the Recalibrated Cyberware Perk. I really like how it allows characters from other cosms to dabble. I'd love it if all cosms got a Perk like this relevant to some of their iconic cosm-restricted special stuff. :D

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

These sorts of issues are a great reason to go with my interpretation from the OP. It's easy to combine Bending the Axioms (p.222) with the idea of opposed or conflicting realities by saying that bending an axiom is an example of conflicting realities, as is natural axiom increase (which presumably ...

Re: Day One Orrorsh: Corrupted Bat Swarm

The lack of ability to gain good or outstanding successes is useful. I expect my players are likely to figure out that blunt stuff works, so they will be trying to bludgeon it to death. I think the thing that really bugs me is the lack of Shock. I'm thinking of just multiplying its shock by some num...

Day One Orrorsh: Corrupted Bat Swarm

I'm reading the stats of this thing, and it seems really weak. The adventure is building it up likes it's something to be afraid of, but it has a Toughness of 5, Shock 8, and you automatically hit it with blunt attacks... I mean, it has 5 Wounds, but those don't matter because you'll eat through tha...
