Fading Suns Designer Diary — March 2018

This month, I thought I’d be sociable and discuss social “combat”.

Fading Suns 4th Edition will have rules for using mental and social coercion and persuasion to win friends and influence Vorox. Or something like that.

Below is a brief sketch. We’re still working on the full system, so please realize that this sneak peek is provisional; there are still many details to come.

Torg Eternity Designer Diary – March 2018

The God Box

It’s no secret that Land Below had a huge impact on the Living Land. Ross Watson had the brilliant idea of threading the “Law of Wonder” through the entire cosm and that opened up so many doors. Why do we have ruined skyscrapers even though according to the axioms there should be nothing but jungle in dominant and pure zones? The Law of Wonders lets them stay intact. Why would anyone go into the dinosaur filled jungles on purpose? The Law of Wonders scatters potent treasures to find.

Living Land Preview #18 – Delphi Council Members

We’re getting closer to the Living Land Kickstarter, so here’s one more content preview for now, this time on some of the members of the Delphi Council. Very soon, we’ll start talking about reward levels and stretch goals.

During the Torg Eternity Kickstarter, several backers had the opportunity to create characters who would be part of the Delphi Council, and two of those characters are highlighted in the Living Land Sourcebook: Professor Thomas Kaine (Michael Dymond) and Dr. William Linear (C. Randall Newton).

Although these characters were introduced at the back of the Torg Eternity Corebook, they’re given a bit more detail here. Dr. Linear is a paleontologist from another cosm destroyed by Baruk Kaah, while Professor Kaine is an “acquisition specialist” with a particularly strong hatred for the Gaunt Man.

Living Land Preview #16 – More Cards

Just a short preview this week, featuring a couple more Drama Deck cards that will be stretch goals.

Battle Scars is a Cosm card that reinforces the Law of Life. Play it on a wounded character to get them back in the action quickly…at a cost. Reconnect is a new Destiny card that allows a Storm Knight to immediately and automatically reconnect to their Possibilities. Great for a tight scrape!

  

If you have any questions or would like to discuss this preview, head on over to our forums!
