Re: Nile Empire Sourcebook Questions

Quick perk question, re: Ingenious (page 17). Is this correct? 1. PC spends Possibility, draws Destiny Card, places in in their hand (what is done with the 1st card isn't actually stated) 2. PC tests Mind, draws 1-3 Destiny Cards depending on success, gives one to another PC which goes into their h...

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...

Re: Moving and Attacking

Thinking about all of this, does the Withdraw From Combat penalty stack?

If you have three spread-out targets and you want to Melee all three (attack; withdraw/move; attack; withdraw/move; attack) and you don't kill any of them are you Vulnerable or Very Vulnerable?

That's exactly what happened in the game I ran last night. And it was wonderful.

Re: Relics of Power Redux?

Have you ever seen the 4-hour fan edit of the trilogy? It's pretty good. I would have still kept the Necromancer stuff in there myself, but I think if there were two 2.5 hour movies like the original intent was, it could have been pretty great too. No, I haven't. All the tying back (tying forward?)...

The first Hobbit movie? Hasn't everyone been trying to erase those movies from their memory like I keep trying to?

Re: Law of Life OR Up on Defeat

Yeah, I always cringe when they spend their last Possibility. I always feel like one should have one stowed away for a Defeat roll. Not that THAT would stop a natural 1.

Law of Life OR Up on Defeat

I think I have this right but I just wanted to make sure (especially since we're in the middle of a game and I'm down to one Possibility and I'm running through death scenarios). If an Up condition is in play and the first roll of a test is a natural 1 then the roll fails and there is no need to rol...

Re: Healing Spell?

Yes, the blending of the Miracle, Magic, and Psionic systems is something that really sticks in my craw. It reminds me of D&D 4e... where everyone had "powers/spells/special moves" that worked A LOT like magic spells. That's an extreme example though. How dare I sully Torg Eternity by ...

Re: Torg the Board Game

Back in the day I was designing a homebrew CCG called Torg: High Lords. It was basically that... players pick different High Lords and you play to build up your zones while trying to stop the other High Lords from building up theirs. You would also build Storm Knight teams that you would be secretly...
