I have no idea if they ship from the EU (and I can't read German), but the Ulisses Spiele e-shop seems to have that (albeit out of stock): https://www.f-shop.de/rollenspiele/torg/

Re: Too Much Tactical Analysis

I haven't had the issue in my TorgE games so far, but I did see it in other games. Usually it's not a system issue, it's a behaviour issue. As a GM I've tried to always make combat challenging (or "balanced" as systems would call it). Unfortunately this makes every fight a life-or-death is...

Re: Anyone else finding the Day 1 adventures easy?
