Re: Things you'd like to know about Tharkold

Like i said, that's my opinion, nothing official. I just look in the core rules at the social chart and see the Law of Domination messing with social 24-26. The Law affects everyone, not just Tharkoldu. You can't have equal justice, cooperation, etc when you have a chain of command. You probably do ...

Re: Things you'd like to know about Tharkold

In oTorg, the Race didn't know if they'd invaded a Demon world or if the demons had invaded the world of the Race. That was always a bit odd to me, since the demons had the Darkness Device, but, if that was the case in TorgE, it might explain the Social axiom? Dunno. In OT, the race first encounter...

Re: Things you'd like to know about Tharkold

I'll just state for RoP (not the sourcebook), I've been to Russia (and will be going there Thursday for 2.5 weeks- vacay in Tharkold, how fun) and asked my Russian friends questions about daily life minutiae. I wanted it to be in "Russia" and not "generic East Europe". Hopefully ...

(Remember! One of the keys in every realm is the search for allies against the High Lords. That means that winning people over is an achievable goal. Be the Flash Gordon you need to be.) :D "Be the Flssh Gordon you need to be", Is going to win Quote of the Day for me! FLash remains the ic...

Re: Things you'd like to know about Tharkold

Assuming we're not using the "Clive Barker meets the Terminator" 90's aesthetic any more, I'd like to know what we're replacing it with. What is the tone and feel of Tharkold and how does it mingle with the local reality? Is this a bleak, empty sort of post-apocalypse rendered like Tarkov...

Re: Playing Torg online

I am thinking about doing some online RPGing and have a few questions for those of you who have used Roll20 and similar systems to play Torg. (1) I see I can purchase the Torg Eternity Drama Deck on Roll20. Does each player need to buy a deck or just the GM? (2) Are there any other tools (digital o...

Re: Cyberdeck - why not cyberware?

In Old Torg, Nippon Tech dated itself with using real world computer terms (as with the Neuromancer example). They actually did a good job in CP using a generic 'Block'. I think TE will do fine not making us facepalm in 5-10 years when reading our books

Re: Kaiju and Mecha in Pan-Pacifica

Honestly don't want it to become the Anime Cosm just because it's set in Asia. Okay with kaiju and can accept zombies (even though our culture hit Peak Zombie a decade ago) but really don't want to see anime tropes. So much you could do with Asia beyond amine. This is my opinion as well. Just becau...

Re: Nile Empire Invisibility

Got it - and the penalty for reconnecting in a Dominant/pure zone doesn't apply if if the Dominant/Pure cosm is the Storm Knight's home cosm (so effectively +/- zero), is that right? Thanks! Graethynne No, it still applies. Otherwise there would be a greater incentive to use foreign contradictory i...

Re: Nile Empire Invisibility

Really Quick question - Invisibility has an axiom requirement higher than NE's magic axiom, but it is on the list. As noted by TPTB it will therefore always cause a contradiction when cast by a NE character. Does this also mean that it would be a 4-case contradiction when cast by a NE character wit...
