  1. I can't say I like the idea of 'player facing'. I'd feel too removed from the game without being able to roll and rolling doesn't distract me anyway. There are also (infrequent) times when I don't want the player rolling for something, because he wouldn't know if he succeeded immediately.
  2. Probably has already been linked to, but ... http://www.sillof.com/C-SW-western.htm
  3. I'm free most nights of the week (I don't watch too much TV). My preference is to GM/play Star Wars 1e (I dislike the Wild Die) but could do D6 pulp or fantasy I suppose.
  4. It's my understanding that T:R&E just expands the rulebook from the boxed set; it is not a complete game in and of itself. Brandon
  5. I can sum it up in two words: social inertia. Simply put, the PCs are not going to have any significant impact on the Social Axiom of the natives regardless of what aspects of their own Social Axiom(s) they use. At best, the natives will stare at the PCs uncomprehendingly when presented with a higher Social concept, then just dismiss them as mad or philosophers to the worst case of the PCs being attacked for trying to destroy the very fabric of the natives' society. The actions between the PCs are unaffected, but interactions with the natives are. (Or, the difference in Social Axioms is roleplayed, not left to a die mechanic)
  6. Apparently it's been too long since I read the book. Some research turns up what I thought to be a major theme to not be one. Disregard my reference to the book.
  7. I think the way the way different social "axioms" were handled in A Connecticut Yankee In King Arthur's Court is far more satisfactory and less heavy-handed (and, frankly, more fun) than getting disconnected for saying "Wait a minute."
  8. If this is the case, the Torg is not a game that interests me anymore.
  9. I obviously don't consider them the same thing. Use the Social axiom if you want; i won't. OTOH, the Social axiom isn't my biggest problem with Torg.
  10. Yes, this is what I'm thinking of. The axioms interfere with a character's physical interactions with the world around him. I find DDs with mind control powers a bigger can of worms. And, again, I'll exempt those who have been Transformed.
  11. I have a lot less of a problem with that, actually.
  12. To me, the Social axiom has seemed rather too much of an anomaly. With Tech, Magic and Spiritual axioms, you are basically setting up conflicts when something is used -- with Social what you say or even think can cause a contradiction. I personally think this makes DDs far too powerful. It's one thing to affect the minds of those who have been Transformed, another to affect those who are just visiting. Torg requires too many things under willing suspension of disbelief and I think this one isn't necessary. It also implies DDs are capable of mind control, which I think is a path not worth taking.
  13. No Marketplace involved. I don't see world laws as unique and non-repeating (that is, I see all the world laws in the core book cosms appearing in other, yet to be discovered, cosms.
  14. Alas I don't have the Cleric's SB and I don't think I ever saw it.
  15. In General Roleplaying, I posted an idea for a setting: http://www.wegfansite.com/forum/showthread.php?2656-Seaplanes-amp-Submarines Here, I'm talking about using it as a realm for Torg. That's right, realm, not cosm. The realm is the result of an attempt by the Nile Empire to conquer the Caribbean. Starting in the east and moving west, the invasion progressed fine until a third stelae was planted to enclose Hati, then things went terribly wrong. Staring in Haiti and rapidly spreading east, the conquered land became (by Moebius' POV) a perversion of the Nile Empire. While Nile axioms held, the Law of Morality vanished (replaced by the Law of Vengeance) and Nile pulp powers, weird science and any Nile-specific miracles/spells began causing contradictions when used. Moebius was baffled as to what was going on, but to the other High Lords mumbled something about "an experiment with my Darkness Device". a few on Haiti simply smiled and said "The loas have spoken". (Yes, I know this is utterly non-canonical, but hey IIn this case, the storms in the general setting become reality storms)
