Re: Do Core Earth Ords Transform into Pan-Pacifica Ords?

I was spoiled back then. The players in my gaming groups were good enough to make me enjoy playing what I consider the worst edition of D&D ever.

Re: coup de grace

Players stack the cards and line up the perfect 9bd hit for 76 damage to the toughness 30 boss who was supposed to last 8 rounds at least, ruining your fight...

...

Until he gets an outstanding result on his soak check and all those cards were wasted.

Re: Skill question

Actually I do truly miss the Tag Skill. In OTorg you had to put at least 1 add in Reality and 3 in a Tag skill. It's what your character was known for. I don't know why they dropped it. I agree. I don't mind that it is now more of a "Choice" than a requirement, yet every concept I have co...

Re: EMP spell question

As always, thanks to all, and especially Dean, for the input. :) The answers have left me with a couple of other, admittedly tangential, questions... High-tech guns count as carried electronics. They're heavily enhanced and if disrupted you're basically left with a club. Given that EMP is one of th...

Re: Living Land Preview #3 - Miracles

I thought it might be the tense question about gotacks tending to the "falling" rather than the "fallen". I had chosen to ignore that.

Re: Do Core Earth Ords Transform into Pan-Pacifica Ords?

This quote reminds me so much of one of my favorite moments in oTorg: in the big sea plane, all the shooty characters involved in the air-fight going on around us either flying our plane or in turrets, when the big guy came out and picked a fight with the passengers. The pilot tossed his uzi back a...

Re: Do Core Earth Ords Transform into Pan-Pacifica Ords?

Or you can Transform to by Ayslish and then shoot the evil wizard with your shotgun. It's a bit of a gamble, but SO worth it for the look on their face. ("I want to show you a trick Mom taught me when you weren't around" - Avatar, Wizards ) This quote reminds me so much of one of my favor...

Re: EMP spell question

I like the idea of using the EMP spell's results as an interaction attack against anyone overly dependent on cyberware/occultech (I would rule friend or foe to be sure casters think about what they are doing if this was implemented) and what constitutes "overly dependent" would be a GM cal...

Re: Do Core Earth Ords Transform into Pan-Pacifica Ords?

I like to think that the reason so many Storm Knights are Transformed Core Earthers is a side effect of the enormous amount of Possibility energy in the cosm. Particularly in oTorg, plenty of stories we're about people who never felt quite at home in CE because they wanted to live in an imaginary wo...

Re: What are some good any-situation tricks?

My favorite film example of the Trick skill must have been a Glory roll: "Look! Air!" Pike to a vampire in Buffey the Vampire Slayer .

Classic examples are causing a noise from a different direction and feinting.
