Re: Aysle Preview #4 - Uthorion

It's also interesting that Uthorian has two Perks normally only available to Core Earth Stormers: Negation and Storm Caller. Perhaps we'll eventually learn that Uthorian is from closer to home than we thought. Maybe the Gaunt Man once visited our Earth and took a "friend" away with him. P...

Re: Aysle Preview #4 - Uthorion

Looks good. A couple of questions. -He has spellcaster but no spells are listed. I am assuming the GM will just pick any they want, or does he have access to all spells? -Semantics thing. I noticed it says "player characters" in one ability. I thought I had read somewhere about "hero...

Re: House rule so PCs can own personal vehicles -- thoughts?

For vehicles that would be a very situational bonus. If the adventure involved spelunking through an Aylsish dungeon/cave system and the team vehicle is an Oda Hornet, it's not like the Hornet would be that useful. However, if a battle in Aylse involved a flying dragon and the GM didn't want the Ho...

Re: House rule so PCs can own personal vehicles -- thoughts?

Because more often as not they run into the same problem as Netrunners and the like. Super powerful at what they do; almost useless at everything else plus the rest of the party generally gets to sit around while they roll. Assuming a starting character, she'll have maybe a +3 in Air, Land or Water...

Re: House rule so PCs can own personal vehicles -- thoughts?

But I still think there's a big difference between a character who can have a vehicle, and the idea that the Delphi Council can provide access to a vehicle when it's considered important enough. Or a character who can have a vehicle or the idea that vehicles exist and maybe you can steal one on you...

Re: Someone has to do it....

Yes but were there R.O.U.S.'s? I don't think they exist. Show The Princess Bride is Alyse enough times and they soon will. I kind of wish TORG was in multiple formats fiction book/movie/TV as well as a game. I want to see the scene of Pella Ardinay watching The Princess Bride almost as much as I wa...

Re: Eternity shard interaction with Fires of Ra

Let's just say that, the GM has built a large adventure centered around an extremely powerful Eternity Shard associated with the Nile Empire, and that this adventure takes place before the Fires of Ra. Specifically, the adventure is called "The Possibility Raiders of the Lost Ark." Assumi...

Don't Escape: 4 Days in a Wasteland

So a little background here. Escape games/rooms have various puzzles (find the key, open the chest, get the thingie to get to the next thingie) and hoops you have to jump through to, well, escape the room/dungeon/toy factory/resort hotel into which you've been locked. The Don't Escape series inverts...

Re: Aysle Preview #1 - One Year Later...

Dragons? Check. Vikings? Check. At least part of Aylse is what happens when "How to Train Your Dragon" goes horribly wrong. Or horribly right. As the series went on, especially on TV, it seemed to become more and more "How to Train Your Living Fighter-Bomber Squadron."

Is Psionic Technology possible...?

...and at what axiom? Granted that Psionics are most directly derived from the Social axiom, but is it possible for technological devices to be created that could instill or permit the usage of psionic skills/power in the non-psionic?
