Re: Fires of Ra Discussion and Questions

So I of course agree with Genius Code Monkey... I've already expressed this earlier in the post on the God Box. I understand the rationale for creating a railroad tour through the Nile Empire, though I still disagree with it. I did want to comment on the notion that Nile Empire is the realm of "...

Re: Orrorsh should drop a Maelstrom Bridge into New Mexico - Old West / Horror

So let's play this out: Orrorsh reality in old southwest: Already covered. (BTW, it's not just Los Alamos... there's Roswell, Sandia National Labs, Area 51, Kirtland AFB). One thing I did forget... lots of oil drilling on public land, especially with the Permian Basin and fracking technology. Don't ...

Re: Orrorsh should drop a Maelstrom Bridge into New Mexico - Old West / Horror

Having lived in new mexico a couple of years, it's not the "classic southwest" you might think. Most of the population lives in a handful of cities. Albuquerque (which is 95% americanized with cookie-cutter neighborhoods), Santa Fe (which is urban hipsters with too much money who like sout...

Re: Kaiju and Mecha in Pan-Pacifica

Add my vote to no column. Primarily, it just doesn't fit in genre. Mecha vs. Kaiju are heroic, super-human forces. The whole notion is that people just can't affect Kaiju... only another Kaiju can. Even if you fire missiles from a destroyer, somehow those missiles don't work against kaiju. But if th...

Re: Fires of Ra Discussion and Questions

I have to say I agree. As a player, whenever we defeat an enemy, it gets annoying when - no matter how third rate or unimportant the enemy is - they're likely to get brought back. It's one thing with a Nemesis. It's another with... everything. I don't know that I'd go all the way to dark noir. The n...

Re: God Box Review - FULL OF SPOILERS

I find player comments on the meta structure to be somewhat irritating - it's akin to going to a horror movie and shouting "no don't split up" at the screen. I don't know, TORG is all about metagaming. We strongly reward players who pull out funny movie quotes that fit the situation. You ...

Re: God Box Review - FULL OF SPOILERS

The God Box isn't to hold Lanala, but Huitzilopochtli, the Atecan darkness device that thinks it is a god. This makes it a moral delemma of helping Quetzalcoatl so that Baruk Kaah doesn't take the entire realm of Azteca. The Aztecans and edeinos will be fighting each other in Chichzen Itza, allowin...

Re: God Box Review - FULL OF SPOILERS

Getting the right balance is immensely hard, particularly given page count limits. One option would be to stick to the core count, and then shift any additional content to *unofficial* and unedited online supplements (reduces publishing costs, lowers editing and formatting costs). WOTC has done that...

Re: God Box Review - FULL OF SPOILERS

Separately, two followup points: 1) Examples of good open sandbox adventures... I'd suggest Waterdeep. http://www.enworld.org/forum/content.php?5593-Pulling-off-a-Dragon-Heist-in-Waterdeep&page=2 There are discussions about choosing the villain, altering the plot, and different ways of engaging ...
