Re: Magic I - Kickstarter

Very disappointing to hear Magic I is being pushed back months (behind Aventuria Card Game (which sort of interests me) and Torg (which doesn't)). If they do "throw in" Gods I at the same time, that would go a long way to making the wait feel worthwhile...

Re: Just received the Armoury cards

In the German edition, there is a card pack with the most commonly used (dis)advantages, special abilities, spells and liturgies. Does anyone know if there are plans to make this card pack available in English? I have all of the current card packs but, as with Guernsey, I would like smaller (and ch...

Re: Magic I - Kickstarter

It's not surprising that TDE is taking second place. Look at the Kickstarter history and it's quite clear that Torg Eternity is a more popular line. TDE - 4 Kickstarters $293,972 and 3,243 total backers Torg - 3 Kickstarters $774,279 and 4,826 total backers For fewer Kickstarters they've raised mor...

Re: Mistranslation in Core Rules (Disease "Swamp Fever" p. 344)

bluedragon, thanks for the translation. I can see why they avoided using "hit points" and "wound points" in English as those have distinct connotations to a lot of English gamers. For the English market, using one term (DP) and adding "(ignoring PRO)" works better.

Re: Mistranslation in Core Rules (Disease "Swamp Fever" p. 344)

Interesting discrepancy between German and English. The "(ignoring PRO)" would mean ignoring protection (which the German version probably assumed whereas the English makes it explicit). Logically, there's no way PRO should apply to diseases. [Disclaimer: I'm going from memory and play lot...

Re: This game though!

I was wondering the same thing. I knew there was an English anthology but hadn't heard of any novels. What are they (and where can I get them)?

Welcome aboard from another (want-to-be) player in the US. I don't suppose you're in the upper midwest?

Re: Need to run some TORG in the Minneapolis area!

What sort of frequency are you looking at? Any thoughts on which day/time you'll be running?

Re: Ulisses at Gamehole Con?

There are also two other Dark Eye games being run on Saturday by a different GM (not me). I don't have time right now to link them...

Re: Interest for a New PbP Game

I'd be willing to give it a shot. I'm unfamiliar with rpol.net and have only used Discord for pc game group chat (so either would be new to me but I have done email and forum pbp games before).
