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...

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...

Re: Living Land and Tech

Given the low-tech nature of the living land, how exactly should the tech limit manifest? For example, magnetism is a natural force, probably seen by primitive peoples as "sticky" rocks. Would a simple piece of iron, rubbed to be magnetic and floating on water still work, or is event this...

Spending a possibility on Soak Roll

Just wondering, when you go to soak damage you spend a possibility to just be able to generate a Reality total for the soak. Are you then able to spend an additional possibility for a roll again if you fail? Joe takes damage and spends a possibility to soak it. He rolls low and is either going to fa...

Re: Swarm creatures (or something)

Be sure to have an engine go out and a dramatic skill resolution to get it fixed during the fight.
