Re: Mental Maths

Hullo, fougerec, The biggest thing for players to remember is that the die roll is not modified by cards or modifiers. The rest of the math I do and just tell the player so they only need to calculate their total. "The target is large and vulnerable, you're all out Attacking so you're at +8&quo...

Re: Mental Maths

Hullo, Count Thalim, Most of mine are fine, but I do have one intermittent player who struggles with the system. Normally on adding the skill to the roll and then comparing that to the chart or similar. It's usually pretty obvious when she does it and the other players are quick to assist. Thankfull...

Re: Mental Maths

Hullo, Mica, We have a novice player and beer player. They are very used to just stating that they want to do and chucking a dice and seeing if it is a success. This is fine for many other game systems where dice result are a direct add-on or a skill check but Torg takes it a lot further. Are they g...

Hullo, folks,

Re: JohnK's Friday Night Torg Eternity Campaign

Hullo, Spatula, Ooh, sounds good! For publication on the Infiniverse Exchange? Well, that was my initial idea. But I have no graphic design skills and I dunno how to make maps. And I'd rather not sink tons of money into it getting real art. So maybe, maybe not. To be honest, regardless of whether fo...

Re: JohnK's Friday Night Torg Eternity Campaign

Hullo, Spatula, So you started the game with old TORG, right? Oh, currently my group has been playing through the Pathfinder Kingmaker adventure path, with breaks for other games from time to time so that I don't go insane. Oh, I went insane gaming years ago. Still am. :) I don't get to play very of...

Re: JohnK's Friday Night Torg Eternity Campaign

Hullo, Spatula, Yeah, that's mostly how I treat my game blog as well - as a campaign record I mean. Only I ask the players not to read it because I put DM-only stuff in them. But it's been handy to be able to go back and call up old sessions to see what happened, at times. Well, I keep a separate fi...

Re: The Nile Empire is Better at Everything

Hullo, TorgHacker, <dusts off hands> Well that solved that issue. Pulp Martial Arts is gone. ;) Oh!! :blink: :blink: Yep, definitely solved the issue. And I'm pleased about it, too. :) Somewhat shocked about this, but it is good to know that you folks at USNA do listen to the customers who buy your ...

Re: JohnK's Friday Night Torg Eternity Campaign

Hullo, Spatula, Thanks for writing your game sessions up, John. I appreciate reading them! And I know it takes a good bit of effort to write all of that out, or at least it does for me! I'm amazed you have time to run 3 different games and write them all up for us. Thanks, mate! Really appreciate th...
