Re: Intimidating Mobs/Crowds

I view Intimidation as one of two ways: A combat skill and a social skill. In combat, the numbers are important because you’re trying to convince many people to stop shooting or to run away or something. Or at least shake them into being less effective in battle. In social situations, I assign a DN ...

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

The players' personalities can play a role certainly. I have one guy who plays his cosm card every time he draws one, regardless of how bad it'll get. The others are more conservative than that to varying degrees. Player count is probably also a factor. The Possibilities-per-player cards are way mor...

Re: What does a Torg Eternity Ninja look like?

What I meant by pacing was just that I feel like the way her abilities work, frontloaded to the very first round, are so counter to what I love about Torg combat, the increasing tension and then victory against all odds feel, that I personally disliked that aspect of the character as a GM and worri...

Re: What does a Torg Eternity Ninja look like?

I made a corporate ninja. Well, kind of. He was Pan Pacifica for certain. He had skills in Stealth and Computers and Find. More importantly, he was psychic. Mind Sense lets you know where human guards would be lurking, and Psychometry is a great way to figure out someone’s password. He was crap at c...

Re: Things you'd like to know about Pan-Pacifica

A High Lord shell game would be very much in line with Pan Pacifica.

Re: The Canny Scientist in Living Land Backer Archetypes

I can’t recall, but is Canny Scientist a backer archetype for LL? I know that the version on DTRPG is not the final version. Maybe the final version will address this.

Re: Best adventure so far?

I rather liked Hostel Takeover from the Delphi Missions. It's a bit short, so you may want to interject an additional scene or two. Or players can do that for you with cosm cards. And Prayers to a Dying Tree from Living Land Delphi Missions also pleased me. I've not run First Walk from Living Land D...

Re: Aysle Backer Archetypes

The whole fetishization of Japanese schoolgirls (or girls of that age) could pose an image problem. Even if the schoolgirl is not in a provocative situation, it could be viewed negatively, depending on the viewer's exposure to certain anime and movies (the entire first act of Tag is about the object...

Re: Aysle Backer Archetypes

Now, on to archetypes, first, a general question... what sort of ratio do y'all prefer between Core Earth locals and other cosm folk? Say you get 16 archetypes per cosm book, of those, how many should be CE and how many shouldn't? In *general*, mind you. Obviously there are corner cases. I think 12...
