This is extremely cool on all levels. I cannot wait to get my hands on these products. And now I can tell my players that we're getting two mega adventures for this one...

If I remember correctly, in oTorg, one of the member of House Tancred had been able to redirect the corrupting effects of Darkness to the land rather than suffer from it. With the consequence of the nature becoming blighted...

She's described as a Core Earther, but looks like a D&D tiefling in both dress and with the skin and horns, so I'm guessing she's used her chameleon ability on herself?

I assume we'll also be getting more of the Relics of Power adventure. That's a lot of adventure!

So it sounds like When Cosms Collide is basically set in Aysle with agents of other realms coming in. Are there plans for When Cosms Collide: Cyberpapacy (and so on) in later Kickstarters or is this a one-off or is it a "we'll see" situation?

That wasn't just one person, it was the whole "patchwork realm" thing. I haven't seen anything in TorgE that lead me to believe that the patchwork realm was still a setting element, so I just assumed it wasn't. Then again, looking at the Frightening Aspect perk in the core book, the perk doesn't forbid growing radical tiefling horns as an option. :twisted:

I guess I'll have to wait and see :D

It’s because she caused a Cosm Chameleon.

Shouldn't she be wearing red, gold, and green as her colors?

There won't be one for the Cyberpapacy. That would delay that wave too long. So right now a 'one off' but a 'we'll see' too.

They're not. They're separate.

I mean, that doesn't mean that they couldn't work together, but that's not the intent.


I'm a little confused. It's called a Mega Adventure, but then you are saying they are separate adventures?

When Cosms Collide is an adventure. Revenge of the Carredon is another adventure. They aren't connected.
