We really do have a pretty open policy with those. As long as it's not something super silly or offensive, they'll pass. Might need some tweaks, but they'll pass.

Not sure what exactly you're looking for, but we already have an example of what horrors and true deaths will look like in Torg: Eternity in Prayers to a Dying Tree in the Delphi Missions: Living Land book. I haven't run it yet, but I'm looking forward to doing so at some point. If for no other reason than one of my players has told me she doesn't like worms... Yes, I'm an evil GM, redundant as that may be.

Ooo, good catch haven't read all of that yet. And some GM's are more evil than others, I've been told I'm pretty far on the evil spectrum, perhaps even eeeviiiilll.

The funny thing is, most of the really good GMs are also pretty evil.

I had to ease off when one of my players started putting her anti-anxiety medication on the table for easy access. Not kidding.

Really hoping the Nile Empire doesnt take as long to ship as Living Land did. Not just for the Nile Empire, I'm looking forward to seeing if they came up with an angle to make Aysle less plain Vanilla.

Please tell me that you kept Lance, the transformed Lance-Missile-Golem. That was my favorite part. :D

Well, eventually we need to stop hitting all new bizarre things to slow down shipping...

As for making Aysle less vanilla, YMMV of course. One thing to keep in mind is that it's intended to be the 'non-Core Earth' cosm that is familiar to most new players. However, I _do_ like what Darrell, Dominick, and Greg have done with it... certainly a lot better than anything I would have done.

Absolutely. Lance is a required element, I feel. My players were less enthusiastic about his appearance, of course... :lol:
