Re: Aysle Backer Archetypes

I'm less inclined to feel like women are being exploited if guys are being given similar treatment...and...uh, I like to look at guys too. I always hate disagreeing with you, but I'm afraid I have to here. It's not the same. Or at least... Art is subjective and so are tastes in what is sexist or ex...

Re: Aysle Backer Archetypes

I like that people, especially guys, are thinking about these issues critically and with an eye toward feminism. But I disagree that artwork showing the female form in something you could see at the beach is always bad in RPGs, and these types of posts make me feel like it's thought of that way. I ...

Re: Aysle Backer Archetypes

I believe that Kuildeous is saying that at a Demo, we are the Ambassadors of Torg. Pretty much. Nobody in my group is going to be offended by nudity or near-nudity. That's not where my concern is. I want Torg to have a positive first experience among convention goers. Many of my friends have expres...

Re: Aysle Backer Archetypes

I've been very impressed with U.S. handling of female character art, particularly with the modesty and common sense for armor, etc. The art for Leena made sense to me as well. If anything it provides a stark contrast to the other characters and accentuates them. It's the exception that proves the r...

Re: Pan-Pacifica Infection Cards

I think we used one of these in Pan Pacifica as well when our campaign went there. It was definitely fun to play it out for all the players (the infected and the rest). Yeah, I should say the other players enjoyed it at my table too. It kind of freaked them out, and I felt that was genre appropriate!

Re: Pan-Pacifica Infection Cards

In that case, some details. What I liked about these is that a new player was infected and he really had fun role playing the symptoms. No one knew what was going on but him and he loved that.

Re: Pan-Pacifica Infection Cards

I really enjoy using these, so I hope so. I think they could be refined and/or expanded a little.

Re: What does Magna Verita look like?

Info on "off-Earth" cosms will definitely be useful for GMs whose players end up traversing a Maelstrom Bridge, and as such I hope we get content about that . . . eventually. Right now, we don't even have books on all eight* cosms, and it would be a mistake to shift any focus to other rea...
