Re: Nile Empire En Media Res

I dont enjoy the PDFs as much as some people do. So I usually just skim them until I get the hard copies. YMMV. Glad to hear I'm not the only one. It means I'm generally going to be one cosm behind the current buzz, but I just don't feel right unless I read through that nice hard copy, and I don't ...

Re: Gospog of the Fifth Planting - Living Land clarificaition

The correct symbol was there in the preview version, but somehow the final version ended up with a broken symbol that doesn't display properly. Hopefully they can get some of those little details corrected now that the Aysle Kickstarter is on.

Re: Too Much Tactical Analysis

After discussing this more with my players, I have a better understanding of the nature of the complaint. The root of the complaint has more to do with the feeling that the cards are driving the character’s actions rather than supporting their actions. Instead of deciding on a course of action and ...

Building characters with XP: The Simple way or the Easy way

It's no secret that the math of Torg XP rewards newly created characters joining a campaign much more than characters starting from the beginning. A character gets 40 points to divide amongst attributes on a 1 for 1 basis. XP, however, is spent on an increasing scale, so if you eventually want to ha...

Re: Beta Doesn't seam to be a big enough deal

My house rule is that permanent losses are either "until the end of the next Act" (for something like a Reality add), or "until you work it out in the story" for something like a permanent injury. I also let players re-calculate their characters' build XP at any time, as if they ...

Re: Broken Combo?

My current "quick and easy" change to falling damage is for every step on the chart after the 10+1BD one, just keep the base at 10 and add an additional bonus die. Though that may not actually reduce the average value enough.

Re: Anyone else finding the Day 1 adventures easy?

They all transcended. I'm not sure which scenes for each--but I think it would have been the third scene at the latest. I got the impression that the adventures intended the characters to transcend fairly early, so I was looking for opportunities that might justify it as soon as possible. But having...

Anyone else finding the Day 1 adventures easy?

My group seems to be in the minority, but they are slamming these things. We're going through in order. They got through the Living Land and Aysle with no fatalities. Because I know how my players might respond if they weren't forewarned, I told them that Pan-Pacifica is expected to be a TPK. I even...

Re: Average result on the bonus chart?

I did the math back when the system first debuted, out of curiosity. The answer is that the average bonus from a single roll with no special modifiers, additions, weirdness, etc. is -1. Pretty harsh, but that's why Storm Knights have all sorts of tricks to weight things in their favor. I saw that b...

Re: Aysle Preview #10 - When Cosms Collide

Yay for lots of sourcebook material! I'd trade a little bit of adventure for more sourcebook stuff. I'm looking forward to the Cyberpapacy. :D
