  1. In case anyone hasn't been following Ulisses' news posts, the Kickstarter for Torg Eternity launched yesterday (5/31). It has already well exceeded its start goal and most of the original stretch goals. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1216685848/torg-eternity They have also set up a Twitter account for the New Now News Service, which is chronicling the first days of the invasion: https://twitter.com/NearNowNews
  2. There are a couple of possible approaches. The easiest one would apply to spells like Lightning which state that the caster must make an attack roll to hit a target with a lightning bolt, simply add the spell's modifier to the Difficulty Number of hitting the target. That description of Ward Arcana even supports this since it says that the modifier is applied to "the difficulty number of using magic to harm a character", it doesn't specifically mention increasing the DN of casting a spell. (Spell Shield is a bit different since it does specify "spells cast" at the protected individual(s).
  3. In the martial arts rewrite on my website I changed Judge to where each success level would reveal a discipline that the target knows. ("Ah! From his footwork and arm movements I can tell that my opponent knows the Southern Tall Crane style up to the third minor discipline!") I also redid a lot of the Tokyo book's material because you're right, a lot of reworking was needed.
  4. I could see maybe an inversion of that idea, that the demons develop Occultech as a way to get around the LoHM, in essence tricking the WL into thinking what you're doing is technology, not magic.
  5. It was rumored way back that there had been a plan for the blasted remains of Tharkold to be absorbed into the GodNet and form the basis of its Hell region, but obviously that idea didn't go anywhere. I had toyed with using variations on that idea over the years but never got very far developing any of them.
  6. Ulisses has created a website for the game: http://www.torgeternity.com/
  7. I dunno, compared to the original Mobius art he's holding the gun in the wrong hand, he's practicing better trigger discipline, there's no infinity sign on the hood...I'm not sure that it's actually Mobius.
  8. Not terribly surprised to see Shane is involved, he tried to buy Torg himself back when it was up for sale. Glad to hear that Gordon is involved in some way, though I suspect he's not deeply involved in it.
  9. I never thought to read it as 2016, I automatically saw that as a 20 with a 16 on the reroll for a die result of 36.
  10. A friend who's in a Google+ Torg group passed along a cryptic message that was posted there yesterday, it said "The Storm Has a Name...Find out more on Tuesday, July 21st...or at GenCon 2015!" and was accompanied by a picture of two red and blue d20s. Maybe it's only going to be some Torg dice being made, maybe Ulisses Spiele is finally doing something with the property. I've been hoping that the game's 25th anniversary wouldn't pass without something happening, so perhaps tomorrow will have some interesting news.
  11. Took me a moment to figure out the smiley face was a colon followed by a capital d. I'm pretty sure all of the effects in question are constant; every roll at night is an Up, every roll in the day is Stymied, and every attack by normal weapons has the first five wounds turned into shock points. They are pretty powerful, which is why you don't go after a vampyre at night with normal weapons!
  12. It becomes one big demon party! I'd say no, demons don't run the risk of being attacked/possessed by more demons. They would still suffer the other affects of the WL for using magic.
  13. Generally the person(s) providing the Faith which powers the miracle is also subject to contradiction checks. (If the priest is providing both it's just one contradiction check, not two.) I thought that was mentioned in the R&E but can't remember for certain.
  14. As long as it is only a dominant zone, the CE priest can still attempt his miracles as per the regular contradiction rules. Self and Touch range miracles are one-cases, others would be LRCs. Just because all miracles are contradictions does not make them bigger contradictions than normal. As long as the CE priest hasn't disconnected he is still connected to his mythos through his connection to his home reality. In a pure zone the miracle, as a contradiction, is of course automatically foiled by the Everlaw of One, however you choose to handle that (I know there are people who disagree wit
  15. Interesting. I wonder if that was being considered for the R&E or if there was another product it might have been used with. Similarly, about a month ago I was pointed to an alternate wraparound cover idea for the R&E by the same artist who did the cover that WEG did use. Unfortunately WEG at the time thought a wraparound cover would be too expensive so they didn't go with it, I think it would have looked really good. http://everwho.deviantart.com/art/TORG-R-E-Original-Cover-mockup-329336224
