Salutations from the Sceptered Isle

Given that US appears to be preparing to get the ball rolling on Fading Suns in 2020 I thought I would pop over from the TORG boards now. Fading Suns was the first proper Sci-Fi game I got into (Bubblegum Crisis doesn't really count) back in the 90s. Along with Dune, which I know FS owes a large deb...

Re: Fires of Ra Discussion and Questions

A question: In the Eye of Sebek room, I understand how the trap works and how the players are supposed to use the hieroglyphics to figure out the correct path through the tiles, but ... how do they know where to start? The gems describe the relative direction of the next step, but it's not clear to...

Re: My very first Torg purchase

Yup, I remember those ads like yesterday, that's what got me hooked :D We played a number of other games, but those first Torg campaigns were the best. Relics was such a great introduction to the setting, and everyone loved the Drama Deck ... and my players hadn't yet started to game the system :lo...

Re: Cyberpapacy Crowdfunding Launches on November 11

One of the things that has struck me about the figures on the CP funding is that the amount pledged has held up ($135k current to $170k total for Asyle, I know postage could have an impact) but the number of backers is way down. (707 to 1156 Asyle total) That suggests that the bigger backers going f...

Re: Cyberpapacy Sourcebook!!

I'm most interested in the locations and characters in the occupied territories. The axiom change in the LL basically chased most people out, the one in the NE actively changed peoples beliefs. The CP prepared people for the second coming more than the others it seems but without the NE mind alterat...

Re: Adjusted DN vs Difficulty Modifiers

I tend to stick with DN targets, except when I have thrown other complicating matters in. I.E you want to jump from one ledge to another in driving rain. Do I apply a DN 14 or a DN 10 with a -4 penalty for the driving rain? Depends if I want that driving rain to be a factor elsewhere. Like they are ...

Re: Maps and blips? How useful?

I use the maps but not the blips. It helps give my players a sense of the scene and frequently will give them ideas about crazy stunts to use during them. The blips occasionally find use for grouping badguys. I.e I'll have a bunch of shocktrooper token to represent how many there are and as they tak...

Re: Pacifist Companions and attacks

If something happened where the PC was unconscious, could not give commands, and suddenly the animal was acting on its own initiative, then the PC isn’t responsible. But in that case the animal should be under the GM’s control as an independent NPC. And therein lies some wonderful angst for the cha...

Re: Pacifist Companions and attacks

Personally I agree with Wakashani here. By using companions to perform attacks it feels very much like rules lawyering around the intent behind Pacifist. After all I don't think most generals are considered pacifists, but they don't actually commit the violence those under their command do. However ...
