Re: Nile Empire Kickstarter stretch goal PDFs going out

The Tanoura Dancer - page 14 ⋅ should Shield Discs defense bonus be incorporated into defense numbers? ⋅ skill table, last few cells in last column don't have background color. Ooh, that's a good point about the shield disc bonus. Maybe so. I bet including that would be easy for...

Ah heck, here are potential world laws/cosm cards for the place: NEW DAIROGAN WORLD LAWS: The Law of Spell Processing Any artificial intelligence capable of performing magic can perform the calculations faster than humanly possible. Such systems can cast two spells per turn instead of one, or three ...

Re: magic: 25 tech: 27 spirit: 9 social: 5 - 17th May 2019

Okay, I'll throw my hat into the ring. Since no one's touched the obvious post-apocalyptic approach I'll give it a go, but with a decidedly torgified spin. If there's interest, I can post World Laws and Cosm Cards. NEW DAIROGA The Distant Past: It was an Earth much like our own, only in this one, At...

Re: GenCon2019

To anyone who wants to get together for an unofficial Torg game, we can let each other know our possible times to get together after the frenzy of ticket-buying ends tomorrow, and everyone knows what their windows of availability are. As for me, I have a six-year-old daughter who wakes me up every m...

Re: Telekinesis errata

This rules change was announced just inside the window of time where tweaks to the backer archetypes were still possible, so I may have been able to slip a "consolation prize" into the mix for at least some of those telekinetic characters out there, who are now mourning the loss of their f...

Re: How many bullets does a Storm Knight carry?

Maybe this is just my own personal head-canon on the matter, but I think of it in terms of what they bought during character creation, and how they've interacted with the Delphi Council and any street suppliers since then. They get $1,000 to buy equipment to start. If they buy a firearm, I just kind...

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 ...
