Re: Contradiction

I am a bit confused by the Surge Drama Deck effect. I thought a character risked disconnection *every* time they rolled a dice while doing something that causes a contradiction. So how does the Surge effect work? Is it an extra role? What purpose does it serve if players are essentially risking dis...

Missing skills: Athletics/Acrobatics

I found a rather glaring oversight as I was reading through the rules on environmental dangers, and kept seeing that they called for Strength and/or Dexterity rolls - there's no skill to help with those. OTORG had Running, Climbing, Lifting, Swimming, and so on, which might be a little much, but TOR...

Re: Favorite Old Torg Adventure (for conversion experiment)

This thread has basically convinced me to rework Relics of Power into an intro campaign. I think I am going to keep the set pieces (the Destiny Map temple, the oil drilling platform, the fight on longboats in the North Sea, maybe the Orient Express, the Forever City) and gut the rest of it. I'm als...

Re: Destiny Deck

The way I understand this will be handled in official adventures is that bigger groups will be facing more opponents (e.g. "two shocktroopers per Storm Knight").

Re: PDF Cards

Nope. Because you cannot re-layout the locked PDFs and the only PDF with backgrounds right now is the one with 1 card per page. Depending on your printer driver and PDF reader, you can set it to print multiple pages from the file onto one physical page. Here's how it'd look in Foxit (my preferred P...

Re: PDF Cards

Still the same problem, as discussed elsewhere. I woudl need to be able to make a sheet of backs. PW lock wont let me. As was suggested elsewhere, what if you print all odd pages to get the fronts and then print all even pages on the backs of those sheets? I dont think you are getting it. The only ...

Re: Favorite Old Torg Adventure (for conversion experiment)

Looks like Pg 234 in the Torg Eternity Core Book is the Tech Axiom chart. I don't see any secrets there? I think he means 238. The eventual result of the Destiny Map trilogy was to send a signal to the Akashans in the Star Sphere cosm, who showed up maybe a year or a little more into the product li...

Re: Spell and Miracle perks underwhelming?

HOLY HELL, where did you see THAT?? I'm assuming that US has a schedule similar to oTorg, so it shouldn't take TOO long. The devs have said that the current plan, which is of course subject to revision depending on how successful the game is, is to go 4-5 months between Cosm books and to have them ...

Re: Willpower/Adrenaline vs Action?

The way I read it (and the way I'll play it) is that you can use Adrenaline/Willpower to increase the actual stat for an instant as well. That would allow you to use Adrenaline for extra melee damage (by boosting Strength), or to run faster (by increasing Dexterity), and so on.
