Old TORG Boxed Set Rulebook PDF?

Postby JohnK » Mon Jul 31, 2017 4:19 pm

Hullo, folks,

While talking about the old TORG books and their publication order, this came up in a post from Kuildeous.

While reading through the entry on the main TORG boxed set, it mentions there were three books, the Rulebook, the Worldbook, and the Adventure Book. In the TORG PDF bundle that came down as part of the Kickstarter, I haven't seen a copy of the Rulebook. Does anyone have a copy of this book? Or perhaps one of the Ulisses Spiele NA team could send one down to me at my e-mail address?

Thanks, in advance. :)

I'm not sure if there was ever a pdf of the original rulebook from the boxed set.

There is such a thing. I found one a long time ago on an old BitTorrent, and still have it, but I don't remember where I got it from.

Hmm, makes me wonder why it wasn't used for the PDF series that the folks at US NA put together for us. Would have liked to have had the PDF of the boxed set complete. Oh, well...

Oh, I hadn't even looked completely through my PDFs. I didn't realize the main rulebook isn't in there. That's odd.

Was it basically replaced with Torg 1.5 then? I can understand if it was, but yeah, having the original would be fun.

Yeah, definitely odd.

And to be honest, if I was running old TORG these days, I would run it with the boxed set (if I actually had that intact with the Drama Deck), as I remember not being overly thrilled with some of the rules introduced in v1.5.

So I just have to hope that there's a PDF of the original Rulebook out there somewhere, and someone with stronger Google-Fu than I will find it. :)

I made a PDF of my 1E box set that was falling apart, and would be happy to provide it to Ulisses so they can add it to the DTRPG rulebook for everyone. :D
I can absolutely certify it is my own personal scan (and have the 1200 DPI TIFF files to prove it, although they were downsampled to 300 DPI for not-running-out-of-tablet-memory reasons :mrgreen: )

That would be terrific, and I hope the folks at USNA take you up on this. :)

He found it on BitTorrent. It almost certainly wasn't an official product, it would've likely been a scan.

So the reason US didn't use it is because they probably don't have one.

Exactly. It appears the entire Boxed Set (Rulebook, World Book, Adventure Book) aren't there, but they were in the BitTorrent. So I am willing to send copies of what I have if Ulisses wants them. (They may want to edit some of the bookmarks out that beg for money though).
