Re: Most OP combos? (Unleash your inner power gamer!)

Hullo, TorgHacker, What's your solution? I'm not sure I can really say, because I've never really run into that problem since 3e. I wish I could say that I've never had the problem come up. Never thought about it too much when I was running TORG in the original, but players today tend to be differen...

Re: The Nile Empire is Better at Everything

Hullo, fougerec, I think the problem with that is that we have no information on Pan-Pacifica martial arts so there's nothing to compare it to. Maybe those Martial Arts are amazingly awesome enough to make the Nile ones a cool but not as cool power. I'd much rather not have Nile martial arts and the...

Re: The Nile Empire is Better at Everything

Hullo, Kuildeous, <...> I felt that the perk for increased unarmed damage covers a lot of ground in Torg. It allows for the knock-off martial artists without requiring a huge expenditure for other elements. And if you want those things, then Pan Pacifica can fit the bill. So I've never seen a "...

Re: The Nile Empire is Better at Everything

Hullo, TorgHacker, "The Nile Empire is Better at Everything." So this comment has come up multiple times in the last little bit. I'm not sure I agree, but I'm willing to hear the arguments for...and against it. And that's the thing. For those who advocate that the statement above is true, ...

Re: Most OP combos? (Unleash your inner power gamer!)

Hullo, pkitty, Fortunately, I don't think it's going to mess up most encounters to always include at least one enemy with (say) Taunt and Trick at 10+. In fact, most players can then show off how well they can resist those effects, until it comes around to the Min-Maxed player's turn and she's sudde...

Re: Most OP combos? (Unleash your inner power gamer!)

Hullo, TorgHacker, Yup. I advocate letting them know ahead of time that incoming is...incoming. Yep, I tend to work that way, too. My attitude is that the players might as well know when something bad is about to happen or the shite is about to hit the fan. (And then they all look over at the min/ma...

Re: Most OP combos? (Unleash your inner power gamer!)

Hullo, TorgHacker, Yes. :lol: Like I say, if you Min/Max don’t complain when you get hit in the Mins over and over, ‘cause I know you’re going to hit with the Max that way. :twisted: This is pretty much the same in any rpg that players attempt to min-max their characters in, at least for sensible GM...

JohnK's Wednesday Night Torg Eternity Campaign

Hullo, folks, I launched my Wednesday night campaign of Torg Eternity with the players some time ago, but because the group plays once per month, have delayed this new thread until they had a couple of game sessions under their belt. As with the other two campaigns that I run, I won't be posting up ...

Re: Question About Experience Points and Advancement

Hullo, Kuildeous, Well, some would argue that the tougher the opponents you fight, the more XPs you should get. I used to argue that very fact. But I like to think that I've moved past that. <snip, snip> The good news is that I was never one of those people who argued that. I've always felt that the...
