Re: Alternative Failure Modes for Spells, Miracles, Psionics

I just can't believe you *had* this and then decided to go with, "On second thought, let's make them all identical." I *told* you that was the, "How Can We Make Utsukushi Cry" meeting! I shouldn't continue my Firefly obsession, but I just had a vision of Wash saying during a mee...

Re: The Destiny Map (Conversion)

Well..... I am the Nile Empire cosm book writer. :mrgreen: :lol: I'd completely forgotten that :d'oh: Though I suspect a lot of the religion as apocalypse stuff will be more a Core Earth cosm book issue, it doesn't really fit very well in the realm of pulp powers, walking gods and weird science - I...

Re: The Destiny Map (Conversion)

The geopolitical situation is pretty much as it is right now. Cheers and thanks. I'd guess that the Russians pulled back from eastern Ukraine in the wake of the initial invasion further North, but I would not be surprised if 'Duke' Volkov has ordered a renewal of the hostilities. A 'Twilight 2000/2...

Re: The Destiny Map (Conversion)

The trip from Venice to the village of Jillibulake in Tibet between Acts 2 and 3 is going to be substantially more difficult than it was in 1990 (the Yugoslavia civil wars only started the year after) - some flight paths pass through Tharkold, and Orrorsh in India makes a trip that side of the borde...

Re: Reavers

If Jayne (or a character like him) was in the Living Land, I would totally have him come across Canton (the mudders' settlement) as part of the Law of Wonders :lol: ...We gotta go to the piece-of-crap alternate future where I'm a hero... :lol: You could rework the setting so that instead of mudders...

Re: Alternative Failure Modes for Spells, Miracles, Psionics

One of the things that changed during development was at one point we did have different effects for failing to activate a spell, miracle, or psionic power. We ended up getting rid of that since it was a bit fiddly and often people didn't remember, and it was taking up needed space it wasn't earnin...

Re: Reconnection is HARD

I have a similar rule - quick discussion in game followed by ruling to be revisited after game. The difference between games lawyering and the real world thing is that in the former, you can change it if you want to whatever the "true" meaning of the words used to express the rule. With re...

Re: Favorite Old Torg Adventure (for conversion experiment)

If you flip through the Orrorsh book and Creatures of Orrorsh there are more than a few creatures that are things players will have never heard of. Alternately some quick research through myths and legends of India, Pakistan and even England (especially Wales, Scotland) can give you some ideas for ...

Re: Reavers

Jayne: Eidenos. Lowest possible Social Axiom. No, a transformed Core Earther who embraces the simple life of the Living Land. Makes total sense. "Mostly if I'm gettin' paid..." But I kinda want him to have the attribute maximums of an Edeinos (spelled it wrong the first time). If Jayne (o...

Re: The Destiny Map (Conversion)

That's what it comes down to for me. Cosm cards are awesome and I'm gonna use them :) I need to find a way to make some of the other ones work in a hardpoint though. I agree that will take finesse, but I can see some wonderful fun on the oil rig in Act One of The Possibility Chalice as the Knights ...
