Re: Mishap question

I've played with #3. One thing happens on a 1, and two others may: Always: Automatic failure Sometimes: Disconnect if in contradiction Sometimes: Mishap effect if one is listed for the action. Otherwise it may still be called a 'mishap', but it doesn't have any extra effects. The automatic failure t...

Re: A Thousand Dramatic Skill Resolutions (and a DSR)

Updated! I paraphrased a few that were multiple lines just to get them to fit the format, or if they were redundant with other suggestions already in place. I already have a stack of ideas for ways to implement some of these in my own games.

Re: A Thousand Dramatic Skill Resolutions (and a DSR)

Keep 'em comin', and I'll keep updating the list. A good list could be great inspiration for all sorts of sessions for the Torg GMs out there (myself included.)

A Thousand Dramatic Skill Resolutions (and a DSR)

I thought it might be a handy resource if we could brainstorm a bunch of ideas for uses for DSR in games. It could be any realm. To get it started: 1. Disarming a bomb before it explodes (the classic) 2. Bypassing the security to get into a vault before the guard returns 3. Stealing evidence from a ...

Re: Character Generator for Windows

One very *minor* suggestion. You should think about updating the version number on the download page (it currently lists 1.6.4, while mine is 2.0.1.8) or including some indicator on the Google Drive page. It's a little tough right now to see if you have the current version without digging up the for...

Keeping track of modifiers

We just finished our second session of T:E, finishing the Day One Living Land scenario. Everybody loved every part of it, save for one thing: We all ended up with our heads spinning trying to keep track of all of the modifiers. Actual example: Player: So, I want to multi attack" all four of the...

I'm getting that, too.

And thank you.

Re: Character Generator for Windows

I'm having two issues. First, if I try to export to any type of PDF (even older characters I've previously exported), I get the following error: https://i.imgur.com/5B1UyXs.png Second, I've got two notes for each character: A quote, and a background. They're entered separately. When I try to export ...

Re: Day One incoming!

Wheew. Session 1 is complete. We made it from the start until just before their arrival at the hospital. Some highlights: A player figures out the strategy for a tough fight. Sets up possibilities, an Aim action, the right cards to make an incredible attack. I say, "You've got it all lines up, ...

Day One incoming!

Tomorrow is my first time with Torg Eternity, save for a short demo session at Fear the Con two years ago. I'll be running Day One. I've been GMing for about 30 years, but haven't run Torg since it came in a box with an 80s metal album cover. I've got the rules read several times through, the pdfs h...
