Re: Victoria Gloriana Medal

I take that to mean that the related skills go up by +1 when wearing the medal because the stat went up by +1. (The skills going up was a clarification for Bless in the FAQ .) Unrelated, but: checking that you've seen that these forums will be closing and Torg Eternity folks joined The Piazza forums...

Re: Heroes of the Possibility Wars Vol 1

It may be too early to bring this up, but in the PDF itself, the bookmarks for characters are all under Rose in the hierarchy, and similarly most of the perk categories are under the first category. :geek:

Re: Reliquaries

Ah. No, that's not the way it works. I mean, if that's the way you want it to work in your game, that's fine. But it's not like "oh I'm going to pray and get a breakthrough"...it's "I woke up this morning and got a breakthrough" or "I saw the sun rise and got a breakthrough...

Re: Other ways to get gear

And there’s something to be said for taking borrowing local gear that won’t cause four-case contradictions.

Re: 6 Underground

No, I just had a pulp hero concept with that as a Super Skill so they could flit around enemies to confound them, so that’s what jumped to mind first. If you’re worried about matching flavor to cosm, just be from wherever’s appropriate, take a lot of Maneuver and Dex. If it makes sense,maybe work to...

Re: Cyberpapacy Sourcebook Preview Discussion

Re: Transgender characters in Torg Eternity

Quite frankly, I don't know. I DO know, though, that this is the first game I've actually seen reach out and even mention transgender that wasn't specifically written to center around the QUILTBAG community from the start.

Hi from California

Been lurking for a bit already. I used to play oTorg in high school, but felt like I never grasped all the rules. I didn't own any of the rulebooks and had to remember everything by explanation. At the time it seemed so complicated and overwrought, and I'd constantly forget how the rules worked. It ...
