Re: House Rules

I really really don't like systems that have different costs for things based on if they were bought during character creation or during the game. Unfortunately that is how Torg is set up with a 5 8's character versus a 11,11,8,5,5 character if both want to end up with at 11, 11, 8, 8, 8 character ...

Re: House Rules

@Steffan. You are probably right about it being a Perk. As a Torg player in 1992 and as GM since 1993 (and only GMing since then), I of course bring my own "baggage" to TE. I like the concept of perks for things that had adventure costs (pulp powers, attribute boosts, etc.) or that allowed...

Re: House Rules

Converting characters from OT to TE left the Weird Scientists of 2 groups feeling blue...)

Diconnection "Paradox"

As I was converting an Aysle knight from OT to TE, I noticed something. The Aylse wheelock pistol and blunderbuss are tech 15. Aysle is tech 14. So do Aysle people disconnect in the Aysle cosm when shooting these firearms? How are they made in Aysle? Is it common knowledge that firearms will become ...

Re: Spell and Miracle perks underwhelming?

I almost made a thread yesterday with the same thing.. underwhelming. It's what is preventing me from jumping into TE feet first. I don't see how super attribute and super skill are OP here. +1 isn't that big and a limit of 1. OT was +3 and you can do it multiple times. The system uses almost the sa...

Drama vs. Destiny

I know it's probably too late, but is there a reason you called the Drama Deck and the Destiny Decks the way you did and not the other way around? Your Drama deck shows Initiative, what actions you "should do", what steps in a skill resolution are possible.... destiny. Your Destiny deck sh...

Re: Using Torg Eternity to improve original Torg

I did the XP/Possibility split before I knew about TE. I would start everyone with 10 Possibilities (5 for ravagons), as the templates pretty much do. From this, subtract any powers that have adventure costs (such as pulp powers, elves/giants/tharkoldu, etc). After each Act award 2-3 XP. XP are used...

Re: Stretch goals

I've been married to a Russian for 7 years. Tharkold would definitely be pronounced "Tarkold".

Re: Scoping Issues

There's a "copy map" function. Just use that. There is a ruler tool (to make sure you don't make a side over 300 miles. I usually would measure out a line with the ruler, then use the draw line to make a line. Do 3 side and you have a triangle that you can color the border, color the insid...

Re: Movie/TV/book references for the realms/cosms

I'd argue that while the word Victorian is used in reference to Orrorsh, the social attitudes and axiom of the realm are more along the lines of the colonial era. So while the tech level is late 1800s, society is more like the 1700s. I don't disagree. I feel strongly that Orrorsh was meant to be pl...
