Re: Large Groups and Possiblities

7 players. Almost all Cosm Cards with encounters played immediately. End of Cosm card encounters average of 7 Possibilities (after spending in the scene). Add 1-2 for Glories played. Primal instincts played. Half the players decided to accept those. Ending average 10 Possibilties.

Re: My Take on Torg Eternity

Just addressing the OP for a moment: while a lot of your observations are fascinating (and I agree with some of them), none of your OT preferences automatically make TE less suited for long campaigns. If I'm reading right, you seem to be of the opinion that long campaigns require more fiddly rules ...

Re: My Take on Torg Eternity

Quick post before work, so I can't go step by step right now. On the soaking damage. I do like the idea of using reality as a skill. A house rule I had in OT was using a reality total to find the number of seconds a reality bubble would last (instead of a standard 15 min), with your turn being the m...

Re: Damage and glory

There are a lot if things I miss from OT, I think TE actually added complexity on some issues or changed rules that I felt the old rule was better suited for my group. Curious about what those issues are if you have time and inclination to comment. Might be a subject for another thread though. I ad...

My Take on Torg Eternity

Gargoyle asked me about some complexities/issues I brought up in another thread. I didn't want to hijack that thread, so starting this post. This really is not a "rip" or "rant" against Torg Eternity (TE), I love many of the things it brought. I just find myself missing some part...

Re: Damage and glory

I agree with your assessment of the Bonus Dice being less clunky than I thought. I am still in the process of deciding if I want to stick with TE or make a hybrid. There are a lot if things I miss from OT, I think TE actually added complexity on some issues or changed rules that I felt the old rule ...

Re: Seize Initiative and the Confused result

Technically, rules as written, no. The Confused disadvantage would keep them from using the card. That being said, if they planned ahead to the point of having Seize the Initiative already in their pool, I'd let them do it anyway... I'm not so certain about that. The playing of Seize the Initiative...

Distract with the tail, hit with the claws. Works together.

Re: Damage and glory

I just wanted to state for the record that my group has no problem with low BD rolls on Outstanding results and Glories. it's still above the base damage and the same as D&D and numerous other games where crit damage may roll low even if you roll high on the hit Last night a player rolled a 78 t...
