Re: Is Psionic Technology possible...?

I could, in theory, easily see a spell cast on a magazine that essentially made it provide infinite ammo for a short while (e.g. 1 minute). The bullets would vanish after the duration, but that wouldn't remove the holes they put in people before then. However, I don't think doing so matches any of t...

Re: Aysle Preview #3 - Perks

IOn the other hand of the other hand, the Core Rulebook says that Aysle's Tech of 14 gives it access to "the scientific method," which so far as I know was fairly specific to Europe in the 17th century. The scientific method should probably be a Social axiom thing rather than a Tech axiom...

Re: Nile Empire Sourcebook Questions

I'm not sure that's a definition that should be used anyway. Nearly any power can be defined as either combat or non-combat depending on the needs of the person having the conversation. Sure, but as I understand it the FAQ entry is mostly meant to cover the transition between the two. Using telekin...

Re: Nile Empire Sourcebook Questions

Further, even accounting for Sandstorm's duration, the mere act of starting a combat will immediately cause Sandstorm to end. Wait, why would that be the case? I assumed that if you get into a fight while maintaining Sandstorm, it just means that you're automatically taking a multi-action penalty t...

Re: DISREGARD Re: Range and LOS of spells etc.

I don't want to go into details on what this was caused by other than to say it was part of the sausage making process of splat books. No one really knows how the game is played The art of the trade How the sausage gets made We just assume that it happens But no one else is in The room where it hap...

Looks... Dark. Perhaps more a wizard than a warrior, though.

Re: multiple attack actions with multi target

If there's ever a TORG III: The Retorgening, I think it would be neat to differentiate multi-target and multi-action from one another, so that multi-target only applies to doing one thing to many targets. Attacks would generally be done with multi-actions (because you're attacking that guy, and then...

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

Huh. It says "may be chosen by Aysle wizards who take the Spellcaster Perk instead of the Aysle Mage list". Does that mean that mages can't "double up" on entry-level spellcaster perks the way invokers can? That is, a follower of Keta Kalles can learn both Miracles and either Opt...

Re: Kaiju and Mecha in Pan-Pacifica

Come to think of it, there is one instance where I can see a humanoid huge "vehicle" make sense, and that's if you have really advanced and powerful biotech (á la OG Star Sphere). In that case, the vehicle is essentially a creature, and the pilot would control it by being plugged into its ...
