Torg Eternity Alternative Dice Systems


I am a big fan of Torg Eternity but not of the Bonus Table. Rolling a die, just to look up that number on a table to get another number seems unnecessarily clumsy to me. This is a collection of suggestions for other ways of rolling skill checks without changing the overall system in any way. 

 This monograph was prompted by the following paragraph in the Infiniverse Rules document:

 Furthermore, you have permission to use the rules of any other open license system (such as FATE, Open D6, and others, for example), or to convert systems of your own design, if doing so does not violate the guidelines of the license of your target system(s).

 With that in mind, I’d like to present 5 alternatives; some of my making, some based on mechanics from the Open D6 system. You might find something you like. Please note they require no changes to the basic systems of Torg, card play, bonuses, etc., just to the dice play. They are simple to drop in, try once or twice and discard them if you don't like them, without impacting on your game in any way.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
