Re: United States At War

An axiom advantage is best used strictly in one's own realm. Trying to execute Social 24 economic maneuvers in Core Earth would be contradictory. For certain Kanawa's field negotiators (read: Stormers) would know how to walk that line. And now that I think about it, how would a Social 24 policy con...

Ah, yes, the historic "Die Hard Protocols".

Also a fantastic resource! What I like about UNESCO is that it provides a rationale, which satisfies my categorizing brain.

Re: Cyberpapacy aesthetic

Torg is a particularly interesting game in that there are actually three Cosms that break apart and represent the Cyberpunk aesthetic - Cyberpapacy, Tharkhold, and Pan-Pacifica. While Tharkhold has the more dystopian Mad Max elements, Pan-Pacifica holds the corporate intrigue / runners in the shadow...

My favorite tool for Hardpoints

Picking Hardpoints can be a highly subjective exercise. Considering there aren't many in the core rules (which is completely understandable; it's something best left for the cosm guides), it's something any of us have to contend with when running Torg. So how to be slightly more systematic when pick...

Re: What's so occult about Occultech?

Another alternate take: Tharkhold and Cyberpapacy are actually flip sides of the same Cosm!

Re: What's so occult about Occultech?

Here's a totally gonzo, bonkers reframe of Tharkhold. We like to think that a massively high Social axiom is all good. Justice for all, an understanding of collaborative progress, a deep acceptance of the human condition. And I do mean human. Imagine that, originally, there were no demons in Tharkho...

Re: What's so occult about Occultech?

I completely understand the need to be inclusive in the core book, and the limitations on depth. So, that gives us some room to speculate and imagine our own ways around Occultech in the meantime. Sure, it might all go out the window once the cosm book comes out, but till then it's a fun endeavor. A...

What's so occult about Occultech?

Other than being from Tharkhold and used by Demons, what's the occult component of Occultech that differentiates it from, say, Cyberpapacy cybertech? Heck, the Cyberpapacy even has the Hexxer, which explicitly affects magic - something Occultech lacks. I understand that there's a bit of flavor. Occu...
