Re: Flurry questions

Thats completely OP, I think I will have to make opponents more able to handle themselves rather than just keeping scenes dramatic each session. Eh, there are three cards (out of 40 - Into the fire, Breakthrough, and Showdown) that have a hero flurry in standard scenes, and two cards (Time for acti...

Re: Rules questions after running a session

Off-topic, but if you're taking D&D 3e, the sneak attack dice would not double on a crit. Does not invalidate your statement about randomness at all though. Actually they do. All dice double on a crtical hit on any atttack roll. This is a tad off-topic, but that's one of those things that chang...

Re: Mishaps and disconnection?

Thank you. While on the subject of bad luck, is a 1 (in a non-disconnection/mishap situation) supposed to be an auto-fail (which it seems the rules text on page 109 is saying, and which was the case on the character sheet posted a while ago), or "only" a -10 bonus number (which is what the...

Re: The Munchkin Thread

Seems to me it might be possible to short-circuit the magic systrem by basically getting your skill high enough and using spells with low enough difficulty that the only time you fail is on a 1. You could confidently be a magic machine gun throwing spells every round. And a Heal spell every round i...

Re: Favorite Old Torg Adventure (for conversion experiment)

I find PDFs useful for four things: 1. Reading while traveling. For example, I've done most of my reading of the TORGE book so far on my way to and from work. 2. Bringing a lot of sometimes-used reference material if playing away from home. For example, if I were playing oTORG right now I would prob...

Re: Why two skills?

If I were to house rule those, I would probably not just combine them, but instead create a different split: Rifles and Pistols. I mean, I've never fired a laser rifle, but I assume the difference between a laser rifle and an assault rifle is smaller than the difference between an assault rifle and ...

Re: House Rules

Converting characters from OT to TE left the Weird Scientists of 2 groups feeling blue...) Profession (Weird Scientist) House Rule: My recommendation, at least until The Powers That Be release the Nile book, would be to make Weird Scientist a perk instead of a skill, with the perk opening up the Sc...

Mishaps and disconnection?

So, if I'm using a tool that's too cool for school and I roll a 1, I disconnect. Would that also be a Mishap and trigger associated effects, or did reality prevent my shenanigans before the Mishap mishappened? For example, let's say I'm in Aysle, and I'm firing a Short Burst at a bunch of vikings wi...
