Re: Rules questions after running a session

The way I read it, every "1" on a bonus die with a TMW gets a reroll save only for a reroll which results in a another "1".

Re: Storm Chasers

Where I'm coming up a little short is trying to figure out is how the idea of being transformed to Living Land, Orrorsh, or Tharkold might be made to sound somewhat appealing to relatively normal folks. Anyone have any ideas they might be willing to share? Living Land - those with a Gaean type view...

Re: Akashans

How about, as a consequence of their conquest by Orrorsh, some cosmic horrors as antagonists well? I'm personally not excited by most of the Cthulhu mythos but that's a minority view I expect. On the other hand, I can see D&D illithids or something like them emerge as a consequence of runaway b...

Re: Akashans

I think I could buy an updated Akashan reality with the following (which I may implement on my own) no starships, but things like Stargates Instead of coming as allies, something analogous to a refugee fleeing a war zone. Keep psionics Have Biotech be their "thing" but Tech could be 28 fo...

Re: Start From Scratch or Continue On? (And Using Old TORG Materials)

We'll be starting from scratch, but I'll be reusing some of the original adventures such as Relics of Power, tweaked to reflect the new setting and metaplot. We have a couple of new players and some old ones - the old hands have forgotten most of the details of the modules, but what they can remembe...

Re: What did you like/disklike about the Space Gods

My two groups felt pretty similar to what has been said above - flavour was meh. Psionics and biotech was pretty cool, as was the Andean civilization flavour, but didn't really like or care about the alien races, didn't like the reality trees (though there was an obvious need for a way to interact w...

Re: Reconnection Difficulty

Remember the Eidenos Gone Native archetype from oTorg? Really, really, REALLY hope to see more of those in the future. Heck, *every* cosm book should have at least one "Invader gone native" archetype, because Core Earth just seduces villains to the Bright Side on a regular basis. "I ...

Re: Greetings from the safest place on Earth!

With the way that Torg Eternity is playing out it seems pretty likely that Australia/New Zealand are basically the best place to be located when all hell breaks lose (at least in the short term). We produce a significant amount of food, much of our exports go into Asia and Pan-Pacifica are still go...

Invasion as Apocalypse

I would never suggest that Torg should be run as grim apocalypse game - the point of the different cosms is not just differing settings and cool stuff, but different tones and modes. The Cosm Cards look to be designed to do exactly that. Nevertheless, if you look at the invasion from the point of vi...
