Oh yeah like that’s a big deal. :roll:

Re: When do you allow subplots to be played in combat?

With cards like Romance, Connection, etc. we always play the card and let the GM decide what happens. We can offer a suggestion though (and it’s up to him whether that works in the campaign or not).

Nemesis takes place against whatever we’re fighting when it’s played. Assuming it’s Reality-rated.

Re: A few questions from a new guy

I'm still working toward running my first Torg game since the 90s. I'm working my way through the rules and gathering supplies. I have most of what I need, but I had one more question about supplies. I picked up a set of acrylic counters. It contains, 8 1-Value Shock 2 5-Value Shock 4 1-Value Wound...

Re: When do you allow subplots to be played in combat?

I feel the very fact that Romance has the option to discard for something gives a bit more leeway in saying "no". Torg E is a lot more "player friendly" than many games but there are points where the GM simply has to say "No you can't Romance the Yokai*" *Actual situat...

Re: Aysle Preview #4 - Uthorion

I'm not sure I really like this guy being a super-genius even beyond Mobius. Even a 12-14 Mind would have made him really smart, but the given rating seems excessive to me. OTOH, I would have liked to see his physical stats be a bit more, but magic can certainly help with those. I see him now as a ...

Because HPL was born in 1890?

Yes, that and the Call of Cthulhu games that take place in Victorian times are set in the 1890s. But yes, Lovecraft himself is a product of the 1890s,

Re: Aysle Preview #4 - Uthorion

I was surprised by the reality perks but I forgot that Mobius had one as well. I suppose it makes sense that the High Lords have access to the secrets of reality; what’s amazing about Core Earth is that “average” stormers there have those abilities too. Core Earth is the Uber Cosm, that’s why it’s ...

Re: When do you allow subplots to be played in combat?

We’ve always played subplot cards out of our pools, and of course you can discard as soon as it’s handed to you if you don’t want to play it. That’s never seemed to get in our way. (My character is a LL savage with a Mind of 5 who has the intellectual capacity of a child. I’ve always considered a ro...

Re: What defense do I use?

I'm confused how "a Barrett M82 and shooting it, not swinging it around as a club" results in unarmed defense. You can used unarmed (and presumably melee) to defend against pistols at melee range? It's not always dodge against firearms? Actually, you can’t use Dodge against any firearm at...
