Re: Heroes of the Possibility Wars Vol 1

I really like this one as well. Having stats for Quinn Sebastian and Lady Ardinay will be really helpful if, say, my heroes have to fight along side them during an assassination attempt or something. Some of the character information was really fascinating, like Thomas Crane's backstory and the real...

Re: Cyberpapacy Sourcebook!!

How often does Malraux have revelations? Are there acolytes on 24 hour guard with pen and paper waiting to note down every word he says just incase he has a revelation? Why? CP is high tech, he probably dictates into a Holy Smartwatch or something. Smartwatches are heresy, don't you know? Only the ...

Re: My very first Torg purchase

My first actual purchase was backing the Eternity Kickstarter back in... 2016? Wow that feels like a while ago. Of course, I had been familiar with Torg for a while at that point. I hadn't been born yet when the original game came out, but the dad of one of my friends in church had copies of most of...

Re: Cyberpapacy Sourcebook Preview Discussion

On page 141, the Forsworn stat block mentions "daemons" as something they can summon, which is separate from the "Minor Demon" stats in the core rules. Am I missing a description of what those are, or did they get cut from the book and the Forsworn never got updated, or what?

Re: Transgender characters in Torg Eternity

I know I'm a bit late, but I'd just like to add my opinion onto the pile. I'm really, really happy to see any recognition of trans issues in the context of games at all, even if it's just one sidebar. I feel like this is such an easy thing to fix -- just add a "most". Most Storm Knights as...

Re: Cyberpapacy Preview #9 - The GodNet (Part 2)

If activity is what you want, then activity you shall get! I like that the Hacking rules are being kept simple, though I'm mildly disappointed that the GodNet isn't as much of a full "setting" as it was in OTorg. The thing that really drew my attention was the bit about how the GodNet refl...

Re: Things you'd like to know about Tharkold

The number one thing would be information about all of the competing High Lord wannabes, and how they interact and fight against one another. Jezrael is a known quantity, but I'm curious to know if Thratchen still has any of his oTorg ties to Orrorsh. Maybe his region has an unusual concentration of...

Re: Things you'd like to know about Pan-Pacifica

I'd love to see more in-depth looks at the Contagion, how it spreads and mutates and so on. Given that Pan-Pacifica is otherwise woefully short on cool monsters and stuff, I'm hoping to see more than just one generic "Yokai", especially given that it's been implied they take on all sorts o...

Re: Aysle Sourcebook Q&A Thread

The Towers titles add up to 23 (all the magic principles), whilst the generalist tower is .. of the Twenty-Two Towers? Is there a reason for this? There are only 22 magical knowledges. Four Essences, five Principles, seven Kindred, and six Elements. Necromancy isn't really a knowledge, being more o...
