Re: Let's Play Video

I have to admit, the `punching the dinosaur' visual is pretty awesome. Intimidating the dinosaur I'm having a harder time picturing... his "predator's eyes" explanation kind of worked, but overall I think there's a reason most systems require a common language for social skills. Not that I...

Re: Saving the world in the age of surveillance

So Storm Knight in the Cyberpapacy will want to look like clowns from the future. KISS : Cyberpapal Storm Knights. That makes way too much sense. Sunglasses don't even work now , so I doubt they'd hold up in the Cyberpapacy. My favorite in that article was the suggestion of printing out shirts with...

Re: Stretch goals

How to pronounce: Aysle Kanawa Vril Uthorion Jean Malraux (Ok, I know this one, but I want to rub it into the face of a player who had no french at school) Baruk Kaah Tharkoldu EYE-ull Kanawa should be said fast, with subtle emphasis on the middle syllable. The emphasis on WA isn't actually all tha...

Re: Describing disconnections

But Transforming is another step down from Disconnecting. Like I said, I wish Transforming was a bigger part of the game -- it might be a cool thing to develop in the Core Earth sourcebook, (nudge, nudge) since that seems like the logical place for extra rules on playing with reality (nudge) which I...

Re: Describing disconnections

That's interesting. Disconnection and Transformation have always been things that I wish were more a part of the game -- TORG has some unique potential that just isn't realized just because... that's not where it went. The Axioms and World Laws make it impossible (or, rather, too cripplingly Disconn...

Re: Preview #13 - Fighting the High Lords

I've always wondered about this -- it is indeed true that in the original Torg, taking out stelae was rarely, like, the point of an adventure, or something Knights particularly tried to do, because it was so.. nigh impossible to manage without going down in history as a genocidal maniac. And here th...

Seriously?? Please do let us know more about this when you can. This is definitely the single strongest factor for me.

Re: The Up/Down thread

Also glad to hear that werewolves - or more to the point, the lycanthropy concept - may survive at the Sourcebook level, at least. My favorite Torg character was an occult alchemist who used the werewolf rules for a Jekyll and Hyde type transformation instead. It worked really, really well mechanica...

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

The Decks do sound amazing, but... to jump all the way back to Screen 1, I have to second Dan Davenport. (Now that I've triple-checked the name, after mis-quoting poor Stormchild elsewhere); I wish I could figure out an easy way to use these decks for my online games. On-line gaming is a much bigger...

Re: Realms vs Cosms

That was brilliant, Rabbitball. My daughter read that over my shoulder and was just horrified. And she's a huge fan of GLaDOS. I can understand you'll miss the magic system (I love it too) but not the Buisness one ? It is beyond my understanding I've been trying to find the right words for this, and...
