Re: Maelstrom

There are a few threats that allow stealing of destiny cards and use by the stealer. One could grab a hero, drama and Maelstrom and do the same to a player character. In my games i call it the Molotov cocktail rule. Once a group does the same thing like that a couple times, word WILL spread and it'l...

Re: Maelstrom

When the ruling was announced, i was ok with it, but now I'm like others not sure. Maelstrom could be played after the last possibility is spent, but before it's rolled or totalled and thus before soaking. Coup d'tate may be ok played after the damage total is calculated. And before soaking. Same th...

Re: Relics of Power Redux Acts 1 & 2 Thoughts? Spoilers!!

My party is almost through the 2nd Act. The cave option almost led to a TPK. The environment trashed them. First retreat I've ever GMed in Torg, OT or TE. Their 2nd attempt almost ended the same (the barbarian was capture, so they had to rescue him.) I allowed an Escape card to get them out. Didn't...

Re: Maelstrom

I guess another way to get a similar effect would be to play the Maelstrom first and hope to hit well enough and then add a bunch of Coup d'etat cards.

Re: Adjusted DN vs Difficulty Modifiers

I use roll20 a lot. there the character sheets, while in theory able to add bonuses/penalties to the die roll, are much easier to adjust the DN. So normally, as the GM I would go ok, he has a 12 dodge, but is vulnerable, so that makes it a 10, but rain cancels that so it's a 12. The player says, I h...

Re: Maelstrom

Yes, that's exactly how it works. He needed 3 turns to get those cards into his pool, so is probably doing it on a minimum of the 4th turn. Or doing a critical moment and losing all his other cards. either way, success or failure, the person who played it and all his buddies' characters can't soak e...

Re: Maps and blips? How useful?

I find Torg (both old and Eternity) to be equally enjoyable and playable with or without. TE rules really are written for Theater of the mind, even with all the tokens and maps they produce. I'm amused that my own group played OT totally TotM without grids/maps for 20+ years, but with TE "deman...

Re: Roll20 Character sheet feedback

I have the TOrg Eternity sheet selected for my game, but it looks nothing like that. How do i get the latest version? What you have is the latest roll20 version. I have my own custom sheet that I'm currently Testing in my game. If you have a pro account, i can give you my code to use. Otherwise I w...
