Greetings from Montreal (with a review!)

Postby Matthew Surridge » Wed Apr 18, 2018 6:27 pm

Hello, all!

I’m a Montrealer who started running a Torg campaign in the spring of 1991, and kept it going sporadically for more than a dozen years. I was incredibly excited when I found out about Torg Eternity about a month ago, and I’m looking forward to beginning a new saga of the Possibility Wars!

I’m also a writer and critic, and I’ve written the first part of a review of Torg Eternity for BlackGate.com, a web site about fantasy, genre fiction, and role-playing games. There’ll be a second part as soon as my gaming group manages to get together for an adventure session. I had been planning to have the first game last Sunday, and do the whole review as one post on Monday. Unfortunately, a suspiciously-timed (ice) storm meant the session got postponed, and I wanted to get the review up to direct readers to the Kickstarter while that was still going. As it turned out, I had a lot to say about Torg anyway …

Yeeeah, that was a special one. The one on Sunday wasn't anywhere near as bad, but the streets were still half the way to being skating rinks.
