Plans for final versions of the pdfs?

I was wondering if it was in the plan/schedule to finalize the pdfs from the Living Land and Nile Empire cosm books. In the Living Land pdf the final version is in worse shape than the preview in terms of the Table of Contents (not the toc page) and some font issues like the beta symbol only showing...

Re: Beta Doesn't seam to be a big enough deal

In my campaign the characters were Beta in a week of in game time. Due to the fact that they were trying to make their way, on foot, from the Jersey Shore to Philadelphia and had a number of adventures on the way. This was months of real world time though. As for the 5xp per act. It does make charac...

Re: Aysle Preview #2 - Magic (Part 1)

I'm guessing Original Torg's Stymied... lose your first re-roll (10, 20, Possibility, etc).

Re: Where can I use Pulp Powers and Ki Powers?

They can be used but are Contradictions. The Reality Mechanics here are that these abilities are made possible by the World Laws of Nile Empire and Pan Pacifica and are not tied directly to Axioms. As you pointed out, one caveat is that weird science devices of the Nile Empire function without contr...

Re: House Rules

Reviving this hela-old thread... Here are some House Rules I am looking to incorporate. I look forward to them being ripped to pieces (so I can build them back up again in a better form).

Another Discord Play by Post Campaign

I've been lurking on Matt's Discord game and have answered the call to battle to GM another one.

I have two players from the current server and if I can get 2 or 3 more we're a go. Let me know if you are interested.

Re: Three Glories

Alignments are phased out, probably because they're phased of much of modern RPG design perhaps for no other reason than to catch up with modern moral philosophy. It also just gets pretty tiresome to debate whether or not my character "can do that." I've started reading Die ( https://imag...
