Thinking about next campaign...

CMOM is great. Fun read.

What I'm hoping for next, though, is a campaign not for a squad of marines but for the crew of an independent commercial ship. I'm picturing what Firefly might have been had Lovecraft been one of the writers.

Re: Some concerns about TN and the difficulty of skill rolls (too easy to succeed)

If TOR 2e is going to stick to the premise that rolls should only be made when something is a true challenge, and the outcome of the roll makes a real difference to the story, then I hope it has (as the sample character sheet suggests maybe it has) separated earning Advancement Points from finding ...

Re: Some concerns about TN and the difficulty of skill rolls (too easy to succeed)

But besides that mechanical part, I think there's a hard interest in the new rules to make players avoid rolling unless really necessary. That is something that, in my opinion, has transpired over severall comments by Francesco here and there. If there is a roll at the table, it should be because s...

Re: Firing Regular Weapons in Vaccuum

Also keep in mind Newton's Third Law: for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. Assuming most scenes in vacuum will also be in zero-g, firing a gun or rifle in such an environment will push or spin the attacker. I would think a Mobility check would be necessary to avoid being disori...

Re: Battle Under the Trees

Is there a board game about the battle in the north? If not, there should be.

Re: Question about drop in total KS campaign funding.

This was my first KS campaign, and I was present at the launch party stream to see the funding go above the 2 million USD mark by several thousand dollars. I looked at the campaign page today and noticed that the total funding dropped down to ~1.99 million USD. I'm curious; is this normal? Is the p...

Re: The One Ring

Depending on how far along they were, it would seem to be a shame if completed work were simply discarded.

And, of course, more adventures is better than fewer adventures.

Re: My Big Wish List Item for TOR 2

I think it's a great addition. I don't think of myself as having trouble coming up with character concepts, personalities, or backstories, and yet it seems like any time I get any kind of scaffolding the result is better than what I come up with myself. I tend to fall into the trap of thinking that ...

Re: Kickstarter “info”

Inspire skill is now Enhearten I think, to avoid confusion with new Inspiration mechanics.
