Re: Nile Empire Sourcebook Questions

A couple of quick points. 1. Darrell and I are talking. Cool, that's all I can ask for. Basically, if it's left as a perk, it needs to be fair value compared to other perks. If nothing else, I'd definitely expect being a mummy to have some drawbacks! If you're undead, you should be affected by Ward...

Re: Nile Empire Sourcebook Questions

(Disclaimer: I'm only about halfway through the book.) I find mummies a bit confusing as regards play balance. The LL book added Poison Tolerance as a perk to help you resist poison -- or I could just start with the Mummy perk (I was resurrected in my backstory) to be completely immune to poison, a...

Re: Do Telepathy, Read Mind, etc. translate language?

Fair enough. In that case, I'm going to rule that any mind-to-mind communication automatically gives you the benefits of Linguist. If you actually have the Linguist perk, they synergize into full-fluency translation.

Re: Nile Empire Sourcebook Questions

Are questions about the booster cards cool here, or should that be a different thread? If the latter, feel free to nuke this question. The cards Into The Air and Watch The Road say that a relevant test "has Advantage." What does that mean? Should it say "is favored" instead, or d...

Re: Do Telepathy, Read Mind, etc. translate language?

Really? I'm all for leaving edge cases and minor things up to GM's call, but that seems like such a fundamental rules decision, especially given the detailed FAQs on things like Telekinesis. It seems off for both "Telepathy is a universal translator" and "Telepathy is completely usele...

Yeah, that's actually the stretch goal I'm most hoping for at the moment. Heck, if it doesn't get funded I'd add a few bucks to treat it as a "digital add-on" if that'd ensure its creation.

Do Telepathy, Read Mind, etc. translate language?

My character speaks English and nothing more. They initiate a telepathic communication (either voluntary as for Telepathy, or involuntary as for Read Mind) with a soldier who speaks Russian and nothing more. What happens? (A) Because the power is a direct mind-to-mind connection, it handles translat...

Can we buy Acrylic Token sets yet?

Possibly dumb question, but have the acrylic token sets been released anywhere for retail? I'm mainly interested in the ones with status effects, wounds, shock, etc.

Re: Share your Torg Eternity characters and archetypes!

Well heck, I saw the replies and got excited that someone else was running with this ball and sharing their own Storm Knights. Or maybe commenting on one of the characters. Kind of sad. I'll let this thread die, but if anyone enjoyed it, I'll continue posting any new characters I come up with at htt...
