Re: Nile Empire Sourcebook Questions

Further, even accounting for Sandstorm's duration, the mere act of starting a combat will immediately cause Sandstorm to end. Wait, why would that be the case? I assumed that if you get into a fight while maintaining Sandstorm, it just means that you're automatically taking a multi-action penalty t...

Re: DISREGARD Re: Range and LOS of spells etc.

I don't want to go into details on what this was caused by other than to say it was part of the sausage making process of splat books. No one really knows how the game is played The art of the trade How the sausage gets made We just assume that it happens But no one else is in The room where it hap...

Looks... Dark. Perhaps more a wizard than a warrior, though.

Re: multiple attack actions with multi target

If there's ever a TORG III: The Retorgening, I think it would be neat to differentiate multi-target and multi-action from one another, so that multi-target only applies to doing one thing to many targets. Attacks would generally be done with multi-actions (because you're attacking that guy, and then...

Re: Aysle Preview #2 - Magic (Part 1)

Huh. It says "may be chosen by Aysle wizards who take the Spellcaster Perk instead of the Aysle Mage list". Does that mean that mages can't "double up" on entry-level spellcaster perks the way invokers can? That is, a follower of Keta Kalles can learn both Miracles and either Opt...

BTW, I'm assuming the box will be called the Treasure Chest.

Re: Kaiju and Mecha in Pan-Pacifica

Come to think of it, there is one instance where I can see a humanoid huge "vehicle" make sense, and that's if you have really advanced and powerful biotech (á la OG Star Sphere). In that case, the vehicle is essentially a creature, and the pilot would control it by being plugged into its ...

Re: Kaiju and Mecha in Pan-Pacifica

We have "primitive" power armor suits in the real world today, so I'm all for something in the form of powered armor at Tech 24, probably as a Perk tree a la Dragon armor for dwarves. I'm not in favor of building-size mecha at Tech 24; maybe if a certain sci-fi reality makes an appearance...

Re: Kaiju and Mecha in Pan-Pacifica

The biggest problem I see is that I don't think their suits were Tech 24. I think transformable mecha would be pushing Tech z5 and combinable mecha are likely beyond that. Frankly, I'm thinking that there is no tech axiom where mecha make sense , combinable or not. Anything you can do with a mecha,...

Re: Kaiji and Mecha in Pan-Pacifica

I'm also mostly opposed to mecha - mostly because it's hard to have a party where one guy has the mecha and the other is an elf with a bow and a wolf companion. Mecha can be cool, but you pretty much need to design the game around them if you're going to feature them to any great extent. Plus, as ot...
