Re: Large Vehicles

I feel like in oTorg there was a line that if weapon A was too piddly to hurt target B, don't bother, using the example of a handgun vs. a tank. Or I could be misremembering?

Re: Psychometry

I (and possibly others) submitted this as a bug fix before the book was declared finished. So when we get the final text hopefully it will be in someone's list.

Re: Magic, Miracles and Psionics

If characters are limited to their cosm's spell/whatever list, does that make the Axiom Increase perk rather worthless to CE casters? I had figured the list was just for starting characters. As all the realities start to interact it seems like they would pick up new tools from other realms, same as ...

Re: Reconnection Difficulty

Remember the Eidenos Gone Native archetype from oTorg? Really, really, REALLY hope to see more of those in the future. Hopefully with fewer miniguns. As high schoolers in the early 90s, pre-"He's got a mini-gun!" T2, we didn't know what that was (Jesse Ventura's weapon in Predator is not ...

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

I remember being pretty excited to get the book, and thought the options were interesting, but then... no one in our group ever did anything with it. And it doesn't seem like they did much of anything in the metaplot, either. Thinking back, I feel like maybe the biotech stuff was a bit too weird com...

Re: TORG Sandboxing

So how do we give players choices or the illusion of choices and still get 1 act of a Torg adventure done in 4 hours? If an Act is a session, that's probably a fairly easy undertaking depending on your prep and/or improv skills. The players have a choice of leads to pursue. Each is an adventure tha...

Re: Some questions

Can the Overcharge Psionic perk (page 98) be used with any skill? Or just psionic skills?

Re: Mastery Perk

That does bring to mind a quick question, though. Super Skill immediately gives a Skill +2; does that change its advancement cost? F"rex: I go that route, and start with Fire Combat 3 and Super Skill: Fire Combat, no limitations or Enhancements. So my Fire Combat starts at 5. When I go to incr...

Re: Skills cost

It's pretty easy to just add a cost to getting the 1st rank in a skill to weight players towards having a spread of starting skills. Maybe 5 XP (the cost of raising 1 add to 3 adds) for the 1st add. Personally, I'd rather have well-rounded than ultra-specialized characters, and characters that start...
