Re: Orrorsh Pop Culture Influence

For Orrorsh pop culture (albeit silghtly older pop) I think almost anything Lovecraft. it does the whole knowledge is more useful than brute force, corruption is nigh inevitable and that the general situation is almost totally fruitless :) While there are some similarities, Orrorsh is not Lovecraft...

Re: Torg Eternity Quick Start

I'm really looking forward to this. I think I have everything ever published for TORG up to and including the 4 issue Tharkold Invasion of Los Angeles.

Re: Changes You've Made -- a.k.a. Wrinkles in the Infiniverse

Oh, I like those changes, johntfs. I tried to run it like Cthulhu and it never really worked that way for me. Looking back now, I would probably have been better going for a Hammer movie vibe?

Orrorsh Pop Culture Influence

One of the things that White Wolf publishing and other game companies have done is list books, movies, TV shows and even music to help players and DMs get into the mood or feel of a place. TORG has a slight problem with this since the cosms/realms are quite unlike the more typical settings of other ...
