Re: Why does taking the same arcane perk just give +1 ability?

That requires a Mind of 9 and a Spirit of 7. I disagree that that's a large investment. Only if you sink 3 skill points in each, which is almost 40% of your skill points. Personally, I don't like starting with more than one skill at +3, but that's my old-school "tag skill" thinking shinin...

Re: Why does taking the same arcane perk just give +1 ability?

There were two main reasons. First, we didn't want what happened in Original Torg where players were swamped with tons and tons of spells or miracles. Cognitive load is a thing, and we didn't want beginning players to feel overloaded. Second, we didn't want mages, priests, and psis to basically bec...

Re: Nile Backer Archetypes

Let's do some math here. I'm assuming that someone with Super Skill will likely be fairly good, say 10, at the underlying stat and they will have 3 regular adds in the skill. So we're comparing 15+favored versus 17. For the sake of argument, let's assume no cards or possibilities, because they make ...

While I mostly agree with you, "Wounds: 2" means they can take two wounds, and get defeated by the third.

Re: Shotgun?

If you want to be realistic, any weapon that launches a projectile with enough momentum to knock an adult person over (as opposed to injuring them to the point where they can't stand anymore) would also have enough recoil to knock the person launching it over. The only exceptions would be things lik...

Re: Three Fight Scenes

We played Feng Shui (the latest version) not long before we started our TorgE campaign. Definitely similarities, though I’d say Torg is more “RPG-ish”. But both are really cinematic and involve realities (or time periods in Feng Shui’s case) clashing in the modern day world. And the rule of cool is...

Re: Electric katana/longbow questions

Isn't there a place in the rulebook that gives an example of a disconnected rifle (assault rifle I think) in the Living Land just being a club? Or am I misremembering and that was referring to a transformed rifle? There is a bit about that in the Melee Weapons section, but the actual rules for disc...

Re: Zones Reverting to Core Earth

So even say a large group of Race thralls that were brought through the maelstrom portal to fight would instantly transform to Core Earth, along with their slave collars and conditioning from the Law of Domination to obey their masters? Or I guess slave collars could transform to tracking collars (...
