Hi Social, Low Tech - trying to grok the cyberpapacy

I'm struggling to understand what this actually means, since in many ways the existing technology we have is enabled by a parallel development in the social axiom. For example, the following are impossible at Social 18: - Large Bureaucracies (i.e. the current Catholic Church... so presumably the Cyb...

CODE: SELECT ALL #BD Chance of Increase Average Increase 1 42.9 % 3.3 2 45.8 % 4.6 3 46.8 % 5.7 4 47.3 % 6.5 Probably the more interesting aspect of Killshot is the increase in variance... So, could be minimal effect, or could be a large effect. It's thus probably more difficult to manage in the ha...

Re: The Nile Empire is Better at Everything

As it so happens, our campaign has both a telepath and a pulp hero with mind control... they are very different. The pulp hero has a higher skill total (as you'd expect), but there are limitations (in this case, voice and gender). The bit with the pulp power granting an auto-check to break free at D...

Re: How much weaker are NPC combined attacks than individual rolls?

I thought the main purpose of minions was to jump in front of villains long enough for them to finish their maniacal monologues... ;)

Re: Sneaking as a group

So, for example, if you need the group to be able to get into the castle quietly, then that happens Why should that just happen because it's convenient to the storyteller's predetermined plot-line? Maybe the party triggers a trap, and gets captured, then has to bluff their way out of it? Maybe they...

Re: Encounter Balance?

We let the combats fall as they may. If the players get in over their heads, it's their own fault. If the GM/storyteller pulls punches, it ruins the authenticity of the play, and everyone cares a lot less about the game. The worst thing for a player is being led around on a leash with a nose ring wh...

Re: Most OP combos? (Unleash your inner power gamer!)

Fuzzy, I seem to end up picking apart some of your posts, I promise it's nothing personal. Quite the contrary, it gives me a lot of perspective. Also, I pick up rules mistakes we make in our house game. I should note - the "OP Combos" in Torg are only very mildly unbalanced. It's not like...

"A gang of militant insult comics could probably destroy us"

ROFL. Oh, that would be an awesome encounter.

A gang of Nile villains called the Death Jesters. They all generally weak and pathetic, but all have super skill taunt (22 or so) and Gloater.

Re: The Nile Empire is Better at Everything

<dusts off hands> Well that solved that issue. Pulp Martial Arts is gone. ;) Wow, that takes some chutzpah. And serious ability to critically review things without attachment, which is the mark of a real professional. To the question: Nile has great axioms. The pulp powers are all very solid and ha...
