Re: Topics for Designer Diaries

I can do one on the philosophy of Aylsish magic if desired. Just give me the parameters of how big and/or detailed you want and I'm good to go.

Thanks!

If Tharkold wasn't invaded, where did the demons come from? :o

Re: My very first Torg purchase

For me, I was planning on getting it for my 25th birthday present (people had given me money, and I had saved up some myself). On the day it showed up at my FLGS about 3 weeks later, I was starting to doubt myself, as there was the Boxed Set, the Living Land Sourcebook, and the first Relics of Power...

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

In oTorg, I ran what I called a Duel Arcane as repeated DSRs. It was a cycle of: ⋅ Diviniation to find a pool of magical energy ⋅  Conjuration to open a path to the natural world ⋅ Apportation to conduct the energy into the world ⋅ Alteration to stabilize the ...

Re: Things you'd like to know about Tharkold

The history of Original Tharkold was probably the best of all the cosms. I hope they keep it. The problem is that the players won't interact with it, so it's just a nod to GM's who know and like the original history. I incorporated bits of the original Aysle into spell and miracle design, but not i...

Re: [Lesson Learned] Using GM Fiat to avoid bad habits in Torg intros

The Heart of Ukhaan mission in the Delphi Council Missions book is an adaptation of a standard pre-launch demo adventure. Take a sampling of archetypes you think would be fun and have at it.

Re: No-handed weapons?

Dancing swords work, until the heliopteryx disconnects... :mrgreen: Great. Now do you know a shop in the Living Land for a starting character to buy one? You don't need a shop, just a magician willing to cast it on the heliopteryx. And since we're already in the realm of massive contradiction, let'...

Re: Additional Special Abilities

I have been looking at Pixaud's and see that you have updated at least a couple of the water spells with Ice Bolt the now awesome Ice Burst, while Water Spray appears to be one of the ones that were cut for space reasons. More specifically, Water Spray was turned into Ice Bolt and made a prerequisi...

Re: Additional Special Abilities

Absolutely - that would be much appreciated! I have been told that stuff is likely to show up somewhere official, so it will have to wait. :cry: But I do have a few things that need to go up that weren't part of the package, so they take top priority now. Our Ayslish mage has taken a Lady of the La...

Re: Magical Principles

I'm only part way througn the book, so it might be covered further in, but, why is there no Principle that combines Death and Time, it's the only combination missing? It's mostly covered by the other posts here, but as the definer of the Principles, let me give an "[O]" answer... ("[...
