Re: JohnK's Friday Night Torg Eternity Campaign

Hullo, Spatula, They're really getting into taking care of the NPCs. That's always gratifying to see, seems like you have a good bunch of roleplayers! The Friday night gamers (in the group's many incarnations) have always been good roleplayers, but they've been exceptional about taking care of and i...

Re: Gear and Transformation

Hullo, fougerec, If nothing else it gives a good use for Setback results. "Oh you'd like to attack with your electric-katana, unfortunately it's a very fancy stick now" LOL! Yes, that's exactly what I've been doing with the Setback results! :) Then again, the guy in my Friday night group p...

Re: Question About Experience Points and Advancement

Hullo, ZorValachan, I'll try to both clarify the group vs. individual rule as well as adding some opinion. I run 2 different Torg Eternity groups. One is an every other Sunday group (with the occasional cancellation due to life). That group is at 45 XP currently. We have been playing since -before- ...

Re: Question About Experience Points and Advancement

Hullo, Spatula, <snip, snip> Each player, yes. And Beta, yes. I tried to emphasize that it was for "each player" to head this question off at the pass! I suppose I didn't emphasize it enough! ;) More likely that I was just being dumb about the matter, to be honest. No worries! :) Okay, thi...

Re: Question About Experience Points and Advancement

Hullo, fougerec, *sigh* That's something else I dislike about the Advancement system the game uses. Unless the players are actually playing the Storm Knight whose player isn't around for the game session, why should they get the benefit of the XP? It's like earning money for not being at work for th...

Re: Question About Experience Points and Advancement

Hullo, Greymarch2000, Think of it more as XP for the group instead of per character. I imagine it's primarily to keep things easy to keep track of. That's what kept/keeps throwing me off. When I think "XP for the group", I think of a pool of XP that the characters have to split among thems...

Re: Question About Experience Points and Advancement

Hullo, utsukushi, Usually each act is worth 5 XP to each player. Unless you're house ruling it, it's not just "usually". "At the end of each act, every Storm Knight in the group gains five XP to spend before the next act begins" (P261) is pretty absolute. Players get 5 XP after e...

Re: Question About Experience Points and Advancement

Hullo, fougerec, I find usually we complete an Act per session so in our case it equates to 5xp per session. If we ever have a multi-session act I'll likely still keep to 5xp per session just because it's easier to calculate for players who miss a game. I've also had session where the PCs breezed th...

Re: Question About Experience Points and Advancement

Hullo, Spatula, Usually each act is worth 5 XP to each player. So each player would have 3 adventures x 4 acts each = 12 x 5 XP per act = 60 XP to spend. Okay, first question... does each player character have 60 XP each or does the game group have 60 XP to split among them? (This is one of the conf...
