Re: Rules questions after running a session

The text is: "When an attack with the weapon results in bonus damage, the player may reroll any 1s and accept the new result." So if you roll a 1, and get another 1, that's it. I've corrected my original statement. That explains one thing, but not exactly my original questions. Player rol...

Re: What did you like/disklike about the Space Gods

I have to say, a single ship of survivors who got away befor ethe Gaunt Man ate their home, now desperate for somewhere to call home, who settle somewhere on Earth and dig in because they literally have nowhere else to go? That's a story. It gives them a purpose and keeps their resources very, very...

Re: Clearance Level and XPs

I think there will be more support than _just_ the cosm books coming. I mean, we do have the Infiniverse. Doing some short PDFs isn't too difficult. Just nothing to announce yet. That said, the only alternative would have been to delay Torg Eternity by 2-3 years, write _every_ book first and then p...

Re: Rules questions after running a session

All 1s, so that second 1 would also get rerolled. I'm assuming that total of 6 comes from 2 BD. From 1 BD. Roll a BD and get a "6" (5+explosion) and then roll a 1, for a total of 6. We got a crazy 48 bonus damage from 2BD last night because of all the second and third 1s getting rerolled ...

Re: Rules questions after running a session

My question after our first TE session.
1. Trademark weapon. Says to reroll all ones on BD. That include 1s on the explosion? So if a 6 and then a 1 is rolled is that a 6 total or does that second 1 get rerolled?

Re: Getting a virtual table top to work with TorgE

Thank you! Thank you! for this! The video on how to get the decks to work was great, GM Matt! I was stumped at what certain deck "commands" did. Also, thanks for the Power Card macros, Marko! So for those completely clueless (like I was) and having trouble with "Power Cards" do t...

Re: Start From Scratch or Continue On? (And Using Old TORG Materials)

I have been running a "continuous" plot Torg game since 1993. There have been long spaces between (ran from 1993-1996, then picked back up in 2003-2005, and back again this year. Each time was a little "retcon" to advance the time of the "Near Now" to actually be near n...

Re: Clearance Level and XPs

They can. We don't want this to be a game where it takes someone five years to go to Level 1 to 20. The problem right now is that it's relatively simple to advance faster than we can get product out, but we have to write the book as if that product WAS out. The book isn't a Living Document. There w...

Re: Clearance Level and XPs

The "goal" is to not punish life. Back in the day (70s 80s and 90s and possibly 00s), There was a real push for each individual character to have individual XP (or whatever passed for XP) in that system based on what the player did with the character. The more the player did, the more the ...

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 ...
