Re: [RUMOR] Delphi Council Drop Box Shipment

But instead of the Meteor, I'm going to use something a bit more cozy. A WWI era tramp steamer. Good resource for that here: http://www.louislamourgreatadventure.com/PongaJimMerchantMarine3.htm The smuggler's hold and the stowable deck gun should be interesting. Quinn Sebastian tells them this is a ...

Re: Nile Backer Archetypes

I wanted to do something that highlighted the real-life customs and traditions of the region, but that wasn't Ancient Egyptian, so my character is a tanoura dancer. It's an Egyptian folk dance inspired by Sufi "Dervish" whirling: I did some research myself, and found a professional(a bell...

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

Act One This act feels like it was written as an introduction to Torg and the Living Land. They set aside time for storm knights to introduce themselves and tell stories, and some of the scenes look like they are designed to showcase simple combats and teach players that the Living Land is primitiv...

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

Thanks for the reply. Yes it's a trope. A trope in a game that is clearly meant to be cinematic in nature. Tropes are not good or bad though, they are in some sense the building blocks of a story. But this block isn't building anything. Compare it to the plane crash in, say, Indiana Jones and the Te...

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

A counterpoint having run the first Act. This is obviously a starting adventure right down to things like "give the characters a chance to introduce themselves" The module starts with the players being sent to Fort Washington by plane, but the plane crashes in the Living Land. Now there’s ...

(Continued) ACT FIVE: As they jump through the portal the Darkness Device Rek Pakken then personally intervenes to taunt the PCs with a vision of the plot and explain exactly what is actually going on! Thanks, Darkness Device! Let’s just point out here that (a) it has taken until the very last act f...

The God Box review (long, somewhat harsh)

The God Box: An Extended Review (Broken up due to post size limits, Part One of Two) Spoilers galore ahead. I’m just saying. Practically every part of this module is spoiled below. Seriously, don’t read this if you ever intend to play it. But also, don’t play it. Because it is bad. I originally pla...

Re: Fires of Ra Discussion and Questions

In another thread someone asked for guidance in how to use Fires of Ra in other ways, by pulling apart the various scenes & acts and using them for smaller adventures. Here's what I'd do: ACT 1 Scene 1: Quick one-shot, perhaps for a convention game. Same basic premise (the Delphi Council caught ...

Re: I wanna fight Ninja!!!!!!!!

You know, it kinda bothers me that Wu Han is still served by 'ninjas' and not the Tongs or something like 'the Club Foot Clan'. Yeah, I know it's 'the Orient' in Terra, but I still thought we were trying to get away from that stuff. Maybe he was a part-time Hanjian(Chinese traitor) in Terra and som...
