Hullo, Jetstream,

So the reason US didn't use it is because they probably don't have one.


Makes as much sense as any, I suppose.

That, or everyone else is using the TORG 1.5 rules.

Hullo, Rabbitball,

I really hope Ulisses takes you up on this, to be honest. I don't want to pay the asking price I've seen some places for the Boxed Set. :(

Yes, yes, it can be. I really want a physical copy, but have budgetary limits now that I'm retired. *sigh*

Well, I PM'd Eric about my PDF, and he said he'd ask about it, and for me to remind him after Gencon (for which I totally understand the insanity that it brings…) :D

So.... there may be Possibilities! ;) May the Law of Hope be on our side!

I think we need the Law of the Underdog to kick in too... 8-)

I'll be at GenCon myself, so I know what you mean. It's more insane for the folks with booths in the Exhibit Hall than it is for regular attendees, but not by much. Then again, I just hope they put the a/c on in the Exhibit Hall area while the vendors are setting up.

The Law of Hope vs. Vegas gambling odds? Eeek! :)

Totally agree! (And the more Laws we can get on our side, the better the odds.) :)

Has anyone heard anything new about this? I used to have a copy of the original rulebook on PDF, then it got replaced by the Revised & Expanded. While I love Kansas Jim's work, I would really love to have my old copy back, which unfortunately I copied over with 1.5... now I have two copies of 1.5... damn't, USNA!!! I should have checked every last book in the download before I copied them over the ones I was able to get BEFORE Eternity was announced!!!

Well, I provided my pdf scan to Ulissess, it's up to them what they do with it.
(I still think it should be added to the Torg Revised/Expanded DTRPG listing, but not my call.)
