Re: Cyberpapacy Preview #4 - Malraux and Ebenuscrux

I suppose it depends if Malreaux really needs to know how to use computers beyond their basic usage. Is he a world-class hacker? Does he even truly understand the GodNet beyond getting to the pulpit to deliver a sermon? He has all these minions to do the heavy work for him. He just needs to be the f...

Re: Character Questionnaire

Oh and the strength comment was triggered by another player who made a 5 strenth PC with mind control, that had the weakness of not being available when wounded. Basically I've noticed that Torg has enough moving parts that players can miss things that seem obvious. I roll in the open so *I* don't ...

Re: Cyberpapacy Preview #4 - Malraux and Ebenuscrux

I feel there's a critical piece of information missing (of course it could be in the text that was not posted): how long he has been Cyberpope? I'm asking because it actually popped up in a theological discussion between one of my players and a priest. And if he's been Cyberpope too long, what's pe...

Re: Cyberpapacy Preview #1 - One Year Later...

I suppose you could have an aged Nazi hunter who was convinced that Hitler’s brain lives on in a jar in South America. Doesn’t even necessarily have to be a WW2 vet. Just someone old enough during the South America conspiracy theory, possibly spurred on by the 1978 Boys from Brazil film. Person may ...

Re: Bulletsmith is contradictory, but when?

I rule the slayer’s gun as a contradiction as well. In fact, one can argue that it’s too good for its tech level due to the occult energies that are unique to Orrorsh. Slayer’s gun: Range 50/100/200, damage 14, one-handed weapon that can be used in melee What compares? An obvious comparison is the W...

Re: Cyberpapacy Preview #4 - Malraux and Ebenuscrux

Yeah, I mentioned the story idea of turning Jean Malreaux against Ebenuscrux, which could be cool in itself. But a more tragic tale is one where Malreaux goes to his grave, still believing that everything he’s done was for the glory of God. Or you know, religion stories have their fair share of mart...

Re: Cyberpapacy Preview #4 - Malraux and Ebenuscrux

As if Gloater isn’t nasty enough, he has an Up when doing so. That’s pretty ugly. Even if he doesn’t physically beat you down (which he can do with as the Bionic Jean), he’s going to crush unbelievers with his convincing words. The route of having the Darkness Device be the real bad guy is a neat tw...

Re: Character Questionnaire

Avoid tanking strength. Seriously. Do so at your own peril. Also, don’t feel compelled to min/max stats. Yes, at the margins it looks like the system encourages it, but in the heart of the system it really isn’t necessary. Make the character you want to play today, not the foundation of the charact...
