Re: When Cosms Collide Discussion Thread

Minor detail. I'm unclear on how softpoints happen. As I understand from the sidebar, a bunch of hardpoints coalesce into that. However just about every capital in the world has a lot of locations of cultural significance that can do that. More specifically, London fits the description but isn't a s...

Re: Make Earth Glorious Again

Toulouse, France, Cyberpapacy, Day 14 Aurore, Damien Monnet The priests and monks at the Couvent des Jacobins had proven to be agreeable hosts. Granted, had they known about “Mother Sarah” and “Brother Matthias”’s true identities they might have been a lot less amenable. Despite their cover apparen...

Re: Orrorsh Day 1 short cuts

It's always been the most problematic cosm, in my experience. Few people even wanted to play characters FROM there in oTorg, since you didn't get any useful World Laws, only penalties! A bit better this time around but, phew, still a heavy cross to bear. According to the Sacellum, if it isn't heavy...

Re: Thoughts on a homebrew perk?

I think it's a bit underpowered too, mostly the Large bit. The +1 Str also provides a +1 Toughness, however the Large gives a higher chance to opponents to score a Good or Outstanding hit, getting an extra damage die which negates the Toughness bonus. In the case of NPC opponents, Large usually mean...

Re: Orrorsh Day 1 short cuts

Funny, something similar happened to me too. They tore down the backup stela in a single turn (in fact the first turn) without even bothering to kill the guardian, then went to the fields and sniped the Tiller from afar. The streak ended when, during the night, they played their third Glory and I dr...

Re: Resting in Torg

So far I've assumed it requires a few hours of actual rest. If the environmental shock can be healed before it has any effect, then perhaps the situation which caused it wasn't that interesting to have it happen when it happened (unless it was for flavor / warning / learning the ropes in which case ...

Re: What's this?

Too clean to be from Tharkold... too secular to be from the Cyber-Papacy... I'm thinking Pan-Pacifica or Akasha.

Re: Day 1 Over Stocked Table Help

You could use any of the non-critical NPCs as a PC instead.

For PP you have the people at the temple (except the shrine maiden) or the shopkeeper they are supposed to meet earlier.

For OR you have the bride or groom.

Re: Perk Compilation Guide

Hmm, well, different Spells have different requirements. Likewise for Pulp Powers. It would make sense to include them as well. On the other hand, most of the time each character has their own spell list for those they have access to, and it doesn't take too long to pick new ones when you know it's ...

Re: When Cosms Collide Discussion Thread

I've only skimmed over for now but... HOLY COW, this is GREAT! There's a lot of new information about the setting as a whole (for example about the workings of reality, as well as a lot of new words and concepts) spread out in notes across various pages (and I assume in the text as well). Perhaps it...
