Re: Tips for Day One?

And having just run Tharkold last night - three things 1) its easy for players to have a little too much fun with bad Russian accents, so figure out your tolerance for off-topic fooling and nudge them back as needed. 2) on a related topic, I find the name Smirnov a little distracting personally as a...

Re: Tips for Day One?

From one of my players, who played LL, NE and Orrorsh I think -

"the nile empire felt very rail-roady, gettinig dropped into an underground cave by fiat. Massaging that into more of choice (or at least the appearance of choice) finding a way into the pyramid, would feel better."

Re: Background Storm Knight Activities

There's some common DNA between your idea and mine https://www.ulisses-us.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=30&t=3861 Feel free to pilfer from mine as I may borrow a little from yours too! The biggest difference I think is that my folks un-selected missions don't auto fail right away (necessarily). My t...

Re: Tips for Day One?

My two cents - each of the Day 1s introduces concepts and mechanics, so make sure you are fully read in what's ne win each one before you start. Also, try to work out your players tolerance for rules complexity and prep them a little. If they are new to TE or Torg in general the Destiny hands and Dr...

Re: Equilibrium - Gun Kata?

I know they didnt use it in Equilibrium, but Gun Kata seems like it would really benefit from the character also knowing Parkour as well. This way they get on close easier. Has anybody looked at a Parkour Perk yet to see what it might look like? Maneuver seems to cover most of what would be Parkour...

Re: Equilibrium - Gun Kata?

It may or may not have been discussed here.. I can't remember. But personally i rule that if you are in melee with a pistol, you are not firing into melee, because you are already in said melee. firing in melee as opposed to into melee. that's a really good point. Rereading them, those headings the...

Re: Equilibrium - Gun Kata?

It’s all good. You are trying a different spin on it, making it Cyberpapacy rather than Pan Pacifica, though I think it works in either cosm (Grammaton Cleric already sounds like a valid church position). I just wanted to link to the old thread so you can see another idea about how to implement it,...

Re: Character Questionnaire

Avoid tanking strength. Seriously. Do so at your own peril. Also, don’t feel compelled to min/max stats. Yes, at the margins it looks like the system encourages it, but in the heart of the system it really isn’t necessary. Make the character you want to play today, not the foundation of the charact...

Re: Bulletsmith is contradictory, but when?

I’d argue that since the slayer’s gun is provided by a Perk that’s a contradiction outside of Orrorsh that the gun itself is a contradiction. I’d argue the same for the armor provided by Dragon Warrior, it also is “starred” but if the gear provided by the Perk isn’t a contradiction, the star means ...
