Re: Opinions on lightning strike miracle?

Yeah, we're definitely introducing some spells that are upgrades to other ones starting in Aysle. Yeah. I know a 'feat tax' isn't exactly popular, but it is a valid way that can, as you say, rehabilitate weak picks and without needing a rewrite. That's good to hear! I hope one of them is Mage Light...

Re: Opinions on lightning strike miracle?

For instance, I think the gain language spell is pointless, and I personally would never spend one of my selections on that spell. I agree. I think I forgot to mention it back when you were asking for people's opinions about what the GodNet should be like, but this was something that I was hoping c...

Re: Opinions on lightning strike miracle?

Put me in the column of someone who wouldn't choose it. My main character is a mage/cleric who actually qualifies for both the lightning bolt spell and the lightning miracle right now. If I ever do choose to get one or the other of them, it'd be the spell over the miracle for sure. To me, 16 dmg eve...

Re: Why be a non "Magic"-person from cosm X?

Then I tried playing a psionicist in the first session of this new game, but retired it after only a single session upon discovering that psionic mind control is absolutely, disgustingly broken. :) Could you elaborate on this? Well, keep in mind we may have been playing it wrong, which I'm sure you...

Re: Why be a non "Magic"-person from cosm X?

This topic is interesting to me because I began playing in a second Torg game recently, and I'm playing a "nonmagical" character. I'd originally thought to go with a Nile illusionist, but I think that they take awhile to really grow into their own, so I relegated it to being the backup cha...

I, also, am looking forward to this one the most.

Re: Someone has to do it....

I guess I was saying I do hope there are a lot more options than just “D&D clone”, but at the same time I’m also glad that “D&D clone” is still one of the options, for anyone who chooses it. I have fond memories of playing D&D in my youth, and it sounds fun to re-experience some of those...

Re: Someone has to do it....

I second the notion that I'd like to see Aysle pull from the source materials for fantasy like mythology and fairy tales and focus on the more original aspects of the setting from oTorg rather than being just a Tolkein /D&D derivative. But I realize some of the design direction was not to go th...

Re: Casting into melee

Kidding aside, the priest is using the priest's abilities to determine success, not the deity's. Plus omnipotence or omniscience is Spirit 26. Both together is Spirit 30. I was speaking more to the priest’s doctrinal beliefs about their deity, rather than what their current reality actually allows....

Re: Casting into melee

If it targets dodge , it counts. Which, as I’ve pointed out once before, can lead to the humorous situation of a priest calling upon favorable divine intervention from his or her omnipotent, omniscient deity by praying for a lightning strike, and then God responds . . . by striking one of the pries...
