Regarding the Living Land Backer Archetypes

Postby mistervimes » Sat Sep 22, 2018 10:52 am

  • The Ruins Seeker and Edeinos Eidolon do not have the Edeinos Racial abilities listed. Is this a typo or should the cosm be Core Earth?
  • The Apex Predator, Lost One and Sunwing Ace do not list the Natural Weapons racial ability. I assume this is a typo?
  • The Hunter of Lanala perk (Apex Predator) does not have a category. I assume the category is Edeinos?

Edeinos don't lose their racial abilities if they transform. Only the Edeinos category Perks. So the fact that they don't have the racial abilities listed isn't indicative of anything.

  • The Apex Predator, Lost One and Sunwing Ace do not list the Natural Weapons racial ability. I assume this is a typo?


  • They have Bite/Claws listed as Weapons. So, no.

  • The Hunter of Lanala perk (Apex Predator) does not have a category. I assume the category is Edeinos?


  • Yeah. It has Chameleon Skin as a prereq, which is an Edeinos Perk.

    As the Creator of the Ruins Seeker, I can assure you, it is a Living Land character. And yes it should have Edeinos Racial Abilities. That was an oversight. I humbly apologize for that.

    The Sunwing, like the transformed edeinos in the batch of regular archetypes, seems to have forgotten it can’t keep Edeinos perks as a Core Earth character. Or maybe non-LL edeinos can have the racial perks?

    A few small blips.

    YOUNG SURVIVOR
    Perk listed as Situational Awareness, Effect as if the Perk was Natural Leader.

    CANNY SCIENTIST
    Perk listed as Situational Awareness, Effect as if the Perk was Natural Leader.

    GRANT POSSIBILITIES
    On both the Inspiring DJ and Canny Scientist, the perk reads as if it was only for Soak rolls, rather than general use. Is this an intentional change from the core rules, a clarification, or a small error? Not sure on this one.

    Nitpicks aside, the concepts are faboo, I salute each and every one of the designers, and I quietly push Luchador off of my table … no biggie, I can replace what I had. *sniffle* :D

    ((And condolences for the two gamers lost. I'd have made one myself for my dearly-departed first Torg GM had I the money to spare. Torches lit, yo.))

    Edeinos racial abilities are specific to the Race not the Cosm. They should still have the Outsider and Bite/Claws regardless of Cosm.

    Exactly. Don’t confuse Perks (which are cosm-specific) with Racial Abilities (which are available to all members of that race regardless of cosm).

    Spatula is correct in that there's an issue here...the issue actually is the Perk.

    This isn't the first time we've seen this mistake. An edeinos who has transformed to Core Earth cannot have Edeinos perks, yet I think every single one of the transformed-edeinos backer archetypes has ignored this rule. :/
