Re: Playing Multiple Glory Cards

Real game, not theoretical First scene: LL/PP mixed zone. Cosm cards that do law of decay, jiangshi attack, and then security clean up are played. Glory was played in there and everyone had like 7 or 8 possibilities and 5 cards. Glory+Cosm cards+subplots got additional possibilities. Second scene: T...

Playing Multiple Glory Cards

So, when you play a Glory card, everyone gains 1 possibility, everyone draws 1 card and hand size increases by 1 until the end of the next act. So Scene 1 happens and a Glory is played. Hand size goes from 4 to 5 cards. Scene 2 happens and another Glory is played. Does the hand size then increase to...

Re: Do I disconnect on ANY roll of 1?

So hypothetically, if you have a Living Land native using primitive technology exclusively, with no access to magic, miracles, psionics, or perks that contradict outside of their native cosm, you'll never have to worry about disconnecting? As long as what you're using is below the axiom(s) of the r...

Missing Day One Adventures

What to do if I haven't got the Day 1 adventures yet?
I got the other releases without problems. I checked my email again and Drivethrurpg to be sure.

Re: Languages?

Torg is set up like a movie and this includes languages: Everyone speaks the same language, depending on where the movie is being shown (played) So that dragon would speak English in theaters in USA, Canada, UK, Australia, etc. In Germany he would be dubbed in German, along with everyone else, etc. ...

Re: Can't use Possibility to cancel Mishap?

Everyone should of course run the game in whatever way works best for their group... but I've found some of the best stories to come out of failures. Some of the best games I've played in and GMed included critical failure rules that resulted in some spectacular failures, which then required specta...

oTorg. Party crashed their plane in the desert. Gloriously dug it out. Out of all the Glories played, that is the only one from the past people remember

Re: Favorite Cosm (Original and Eternity)

My players never made it to a cosm, so I'll assume Realm. As a GM, I don't really like Nile. EVERYONE and their dog wants to be from Nile. I started a new group earlier this year and 3 of the 6 players chose Nile. I think the "Dark Avenger" template has been use 4 or 5 times (one of the re...

Re: Can't use Possibility to cancel Mishap?

Personally I dislike auto-fail in Torg. a 1 is a -10 bonus anyway (-12 in oTorg), so even if you have a maxed skill (13 attribute +3 adds = 16) a 10 is the "standard" DN, so you're still going to fail. get it to a +5 adds and still fail. Going to take Mastery, or some other perk/combat opt...

Re: Alternative Failure Modes for Spells, Miracles, Psionics

Orrorsh Occultist: The caster takes 2 Shock, but no additional effect. The Gaunt Man wants practitioners to explore the dark arts! I was looking these spell-casting mishaps over as I'm planning on using them for my group. But I thought the Orrorsh one lacked flavour. What do people think of somethi...
