Re: Describing disconnections

My shrodinger description was for the benefit of the players. Characters might well have different, equally true versions but I was trying to explain why a machete didn't work in a living land. A machete is too high tech but it can't go click either.

Describing disconnections

Disconnecting and Schrodinger's Cat: Thoughts anyone? Is this description supported by the rules, or as much as we know so far? I was trying to sell my group last night on changing over to playing Torg and was struggling to explain disconnection; "your high tech equipment stops working" wa...

Re: Preview #7 - The Nile Empire and Tharkold

Ah! I have that book! I always thought I could picture The Race taking the same path as the Kaleds in Doctor Who, becoming Daleks! The Tom Baker Genesis of the Daleks story is great inspiration!

Spheres? I know it's been a while since I read Tharkold (approx two and a half decades), but I don't recall Spheres. Enlighten me!

Re: Preview #9 - The Drama, Destiny, and Cosm Decks

That question has made me look up the old rule book. There was an option for how to play without the cards, or how to play with only some uses of the cards.

Re: Playing with dice options: a tangent

Ah, yes. Sorry. The 11 is the equivalent of +0. I made the error in my description because I have subtracted the 11 from the die roll on my spreadsheet so that I can compare more easily but in play, I would just add the 11 to the TN. Or not. This idea may never see actual play and at least not until...

Re: Playing with dice options: a tangent

What about if when you spend a possibility on a low roll, you roll two Eternity dice and add it to the sum? How does that affect the percentages? If you spend it on a bonus of +0 or better, you only roll one die. It will make rolling on low rolls more exciting with only a limited chance of getting i...

Re: Playing with dice options: a tangent

Ah, yes. I see the problem with adding the Eternity die to an already low roll. That is because of the minimum 10 on a possibility spend. I will have to consider that. On the high side (21+) it probably only matters for Glory as getting 21+ probably means that you are already into the superior succe...
