Re: Wish and Bane Lists

Stalenger can be cool when converted to other realities, like a mage/cyberdecker/martial artist (Shuriken!) Mainly I want a non-stupid Uthorian. They seem to have got the Non-stupid Baruk Kaah down. When I saw the pic of him I thought hmm maybe not so bad, but then I read the CRB and they made Uthor...

Re: Feedback after first full table session.

The rules say that you lose these conditions at the end of your next turn. So depending on initiative order, you could be Very Vulnerable for 0-2 villain turns. Worst-case scenario: Round 1, Heroes go first. Hero goes All-Out and suffers Very Vulnerable. Villains on Round 1 take advantage of that. ...

Re: When do you tell players results?

I generally don't tell people the specific effects until things are resolved, just out of sheer laziness -- I don't want to describe things twice. I do tell them the DN right off, and whether degrees of success are significant as soon as they ask. I am a great believer in playing it open as TorgE s...

Re: Online Gaming

I have started a biweekly campaign. The card situtation isn't TOO bad if you take the "One card per page" version of the pdf, run it through a converter to make each page of the pdf a jpg and then drag and then build the deck from there (Roll20 has a tool to build decks). Took me about an...

Re: When do you tell players results?

I usually don't. My group of players that I have been playing with for years has a good eye and can usually figure out DNs (for any game) within a couple rounds. In Torg specifically, my experiences as a GM (and as a player - today my first time as a Torg player since 1993), influences me that it i...

Re: Melee vs Unarmed Defense (vs Dodge?)

Brawler's particularly good for Edeinos, particularly combined with Death Claws. Although at that point you're in the opposite realm of "not having to worry about weapon axioms," since now your claws are a contradiction everywhere. :D Yep, played my first Torg game as a player in a quarte...

Re: Scenes, Battles, and Destiny re-fills

Personally I have a very hard time wrapping my head around the idea of a scene containing multiple fights. I can imagine a scene involving conflict with multiple groups in turn, but feel like it would be one long, evolving combat. Like say escaping a self destructing enemy base, you have to fight t...

Re: Playing Multiple Glory Cards

So two things about the Glory cards. If you have really skilled players and don't like the number of Glories, pull some out of the Deck. Either way though, if a Storm Knight group is doing multiple Glories in a very short order, the High Lord is definitely going to take notice. So..... Drop a Ravag...
