Re: Need input on published adventures

Each of the mega-adventures focuses on a different cosm - naturally the one they're attached to in the kickstarter. I've found that for our group - one of the mega-adventures followed by a variety of palette cleansers in different cosms followed by another mega-adventure works well. I think it reall...

Acts 3-5 are part of the Aysle kickstarter IIRC, with the remainder and HC print copy part of the Cyberpapacy kickstarter.

Re: Narrative Impact of standard/Good success on interaction attacks

I find I get a lot of mileage out of the concepts of intent and approach. If the player's intent is clear I know how to describe the mechanics of Stymied/Vulnerable and already know the Player's Call result. The approach is simply what skill is being used. I find when it comes to the interaction att...

Re: Custom Stelae maps?

I just grabbed the 90 day one, made a copy and adjust as we go. It works well. I haven't had any issues with the colors but I did need to start another layer because at a certain point it made all my new zones on an existing layer the same.

Re: Reliquaries

And everybody else is described as "The Church Police", "The Inquisition", "The Techquisition." So, the way I understand it, which may be entirely wrong, is... everybody else is kinda faceless? Take the Church Police, change a stat or two and name them. Unless you're l...

Re: Poll: Threat Stat Blocks in adventures

Having them all together, in the back, makes it easier when we're using some of the new threats in our own adventures.

Re: Fish out of water

As long as the players make some sort of attempt at disguising their Eidenos member, I handwave it. It's only when being disguised actually matters (infiltrating an enemy stronghold through guile, keeping your head down because you're wanted etc.) that I actually worry about it and have them make di...

Re: Wi-Fi or wireless?

Considering the Cyberpapcy sent advance agents to prepare the population, wouldn't it make sense they also sent a tech or two to look over the existing tech? And since we openly publish our wireless tech protocols, it wouldn't be a stretch to say a behind the scenes software update would make CP te...

Re: My very first Torg purchase

I picked up the novel to read on a train ride between Ottawa and New Brunswick and when I got back to Ottawa immediately picked up the game from my FLGS.

Re: Mob Combat

Feel free to speculate.

One of the issues with DSR for a battle is that only one character can complete a step each round. I think you'd need to structure it more like a foot chase, where each individual can further their steps.
