Perk not in book?

Postby Lime2K » Sat Jul 29, 2017 11:00 am

So I was reading through the monsters this morning (prepping notes for a session happening Soon™), and I noticed that the Werewolf has a perk named 'Quick" which is not anywhere in the book. Did it get cut for space by accident, or did it end up being changed/renamed and the monster listing not updated?

It was cut. The old Quick Perk gave the option to spend a Possibility to gain a Flurry for that character during the round. For a monster this isn't quite so bad, but for heroes that can lead to some serious brokenness... :mrgreen:

Yep. Errata will just say remove Quick.

Congratulations to the writers of the Day One adventures - The Living Land one especially was a great way to kick off in TorgE (though if running the Pan Pacifica one I might make escape the at end easier! The infected conditions are very cool).

A few of the characters had Perks I did not recognise: "Favored" ("Drivetrain" in Tharkold, "The Kid" in the Nile), "Tactician" ("Java" in the Nile) and "Share Possibilities" ("The Kid" in the Nile).

Are these bugs from previous versions of the rules (like "Quick" for Kelsey Kavanaugh in the Nile) or are they bonus content which will be added to the adventure book?

Share Possibilities is likely Grant Possibilities? The other two, no clue.

For the record:
"Favored" is the old name for the Prodigy Perk (changed when the Favored status for skills became a thing)
"Share Possibilities" should be Grant Possibilities
"Tactician" should be Situational Awareness, if I remember correctly
