Re: Wrapping my head around the cosms

Right smack in the middle of that Pan-Pacifica/Orrorsh mixed zone. Hmmm... why PP? The sunken city of R'lyeh is in the South Pacific. This was the area where a merchant ship rammed Cthulhu. I know, but he wrote more then just "Call of Chtulhu". "The Shadow over Innsmouth" happen...

Re: Wrapping my head around the cosms

By the way, I wonder where Lovecraft belongs.
By time-frame it's between Orrorsh and Nile, but as idea I'd put it into Orrorsh.

Re: Psi and the Social Axiom

I'm respectfully disagree. 1. "Midichlorians" just are bad, because they actually don't explaining anything and doesn't mean that story is somehow better. In a way, Force in Expanded Universe violate rules, and thats why it's bland and bad. Potter magic is bad, because it haven't its own s...

Re: Torg at the Movies

While it wasn't a very good movie, Helsing seems like the closest to Orrorsh as I currently understand it. Also, the tv show Penny Dreadful really nails it. You mean "Van Helsing" with Hugh Jackman, not anime serials, right? About Orrorsh you can always point classics like 1931 "Drac...

Re: Psi and the Social Axiom

I do agree (and when I said that Torg isn't technocentric, I meant that's not conciouss effort). Also I'd add a thing - the another problem with Magic or Psionics or even Spirit is there are a lot of different realizations in world culture. To make magic ruleset you'll need to take ONE approach. I a...

Re: Wrapping my head around the cosms

For Cyberpapacy I really recommend "If This Goes On—" by Heinlein. I began to sense faintly that secrecy is the keystone of all tyranny. Not force, but secrecy . . . censorship. When any government, or any church for that matter, undertakes to say to its subjects, ‚This you may not read, t...

Re: Social Axiom Underrated

Just to chip in quickly: is the math professor example a good one? Advanced math and physical laws have to be different in Aysle, don't they? I mean, this is a reality in which it's possible to have a donut-shaped world in which the sun rises and sets through the hole in the middle. Well. 1. I don'...

Re: Psi and the Social Axiom

However, Spells are to the Magic Axiom as the mentioned Mauser is to the Tech. To make the equivalent of a Scope we'd need a magical bauble that enhanced the range of spells. To match the laser sight we need a Magic-whatnot that ignores 1 point of penalties. Instead of Smart Ammo, a Speculo of Divi...

Re: Questions about vehicles

Yep yep, it's a contradiction for sure, but I guess I can't imagine too many instances of them actually communicating with the DC from inside the LL since radios and satellite communications don't work past 1k anyway, even if you're a Storm Knight. Oh yes. I forgot they cancel radio and satellites ...
