Re: Share your Torg Eternity characters and archetypes!

I am a huge fan of the Mystery Men movie from the late 90's. The whole thing seems perfect for the Nile Empire. . . . . Mr. Furious (Roy) Well, I am a ticking time bomb of fury. Cosm: Nile Empire (Magic: 14, Social: 20, Spirit: 18, Tech: 20) Puting it in Torg terms, I think there's a strong argumen...

Re: Creative Interpretation of Text as Given – Reality-Rated Individuals in Untouched Cosms

@Matthew Surridge: You're welcome! You raised lots of interesting points in that last post. As for the reality-rated question, I'm torn. On one hand, I like the idea that if any character starts acting like a hero, then they get to use cards in play, whether there's any "conflict of realities&q...

Re: Creative Interpretation of Text as Given – Reality-Rated Individuals in Untouched Cosms

Just wanted to remind people . . . SPOILERS AHEAD . . . . . . But the special Gen Con game last year revealed that ancient Earth did have contact with several different realities, so it could definitely have had reality-rated individuals for some unspecified period of its history. So no AI bending o...

Re: House rule so PCs can own personal vehicles -- thoughts?

Actually, there's a Perk coming for one of the Nile Empire backer types that is along this line. 99% sure anyway. Nice. I'm all for more options. I forgot to mention, the existing Flight pulp power from the Nile, and the existing Fly spell that's native to several cosms, can easily be fluffed into ...

Re: House rule so PCs can own personal vehicles -- thoughts?

This game just doesn’t seem set up to support having a “signature vehicle” as a defining (or even major) trait of a PC. It’s just far too difficult to take it to different cosms, or use it within an adventure, etc. it just doesn’t fit. Which is a shame for vehicle-dependent perks. It would take an ...

Re: House rule so PCs can have vehicles -- thoughts?

I'm not fond of perk-protecting vehicles either simply because then we have to find a way to make them relevant more often than I expect. With perk-protected gear like the slayer's gun, occultech, and trademark weapons, it's fairly easy to keep them relevant. You carry the item with you. If you los...

Re: House rule so PCs can have vehicles -- thoughts?

I would not want to tie a perk to vehicles because when the vehicle inevitably gets lost or destroyed, then that is part of a perk being lost. I don't think that would be an issue here. In this case, it's "perk protected", similar to a trademarked weapon or a set of electric samurai armor...

Re: Excess wealth

If you want to start with a minigun, a Barrett, or any weapons bigger than a basic rifle, you need take wealthy. For example, a soldier who held onto his m60 and had his moment of crisis when he used it to hold off the oncoming edeinos so his platoon could escape would need wealthy to start the gam...

Re: Excess wealth

I took the Wealthy perk on one of my two current characters, and as Utsukushi suggested, went Cyberpapacy so I could load up on gear. I actually burned through the entire money allotment, and without even buying everything I was interested in (loading up on multiple Disruptor and Offensive grenades ...

Re: Kaiju and Mecha in Pan-Pacifica

Put me in the "Yes" column for biggish-to-giant kaiju as rare, plot-specific threats along the lines of the Bor Aka, and the "No" column for Pan-Pacifica having giant mecha. I'd be okay with small mecha, say an eight-foot-tall battlesuit that's equivalent to Ripley's forklift mec...
