Re: Novels

I read the original trilogy when it came out. It really was very simply written, but the ideas were all very cool. I got into the opening tale of the Core Earther who transformed to Living Land. There were some neat story ideas, such as Kurst becoming a Storm Knight, the creation of the Cyberpapacy,...

I'm cool with that. I've lately been giving the same XP whether the party succeeds or fails. This jives with my philosophy.

Re: Preview #9 - The Drama, Destiny, and Cosm Decks

Yeah, in the old days, I would have been on board with that. Nowadays, I'm not so fond of the idea of giving extra XP based solely on card luck. I'm not even a fan of giving XP to a player for being wittier or cleverer than the others. I've been adopting the stance lately that XP is never awarded. E...

Re: Considerations of the +dE system and House Rules to avoid it (if desired)

2D6E bonus mean 1/3 chances of rerolling a 6. <pedantic>Rolling 2d6, you have a 11/36 chance of rolling at least one 6. </pedantic> The scenario of dropping big creatures quickly was also prevalent in oTorg. Someone piles on some Hero and Drama cards, slaps a Coup de Grace or two, and chooses Vital...

Re: Preview #13 - Fighting the High Lords

But as far as I could ever tell, that's more or less the *only* way for Earth to, you know, win. I mean, that's why the post titled, "Fighting The High Lords" is almost entirely about how removing stelae works -- it's the only particularly meaningful way to fight the High Lords. So why is...

Definitely could benefit from a wiki, especially as important NPCs get introduced.

Re: Torg organized play

Understood. If it ever does happen, my friend calls dibs on naming it "Torganized Play."

I only wish I could claim credit for that one.

Torg organized play

So back in 1990, communications were laughably primitive compared to today. The Infiniverse was the closest we had to a shared campaign. At around that time, the RPGA had Living City, though it would be years before I discovered that. Since then, many organized play campaigns have erupted. Living Ci...

Yeah, that sounds friendly and flexible.

No, it's an upgrade to the Dragon Armor Perk. +10 Toughness vs. fire.


The sheet says +8. I assume that supersedes the +5?

Re: Preview #14 - Storm Knights, Reality Storms, and Archetypes

I've always been a little wary of advantages in the form of equipment. It seems like a waste of points if something better comes along. I recall in my games of Torg that Storm Knights made excellent scavengers. Hey, found a better gun/sword/armor; I'll toss this one. What if the dwarf evolves to the...
