TORG is one of my all time favorite rpgs. I finally got around to getting this "revised and expanded" version of the rules and I am pleased with them. The game mechanics are simple yet sophisticated enough to garner an rpg veteran's respect. The only thing I do not like about this download is the fact that the cover of the book is not included. I know this sounds odd but a book is just not a book without its cover:).

For those of you familiar with older version of the Torg RPG, this product is an excellent buy! Many problems with the original product (published by West End Games in the 1990s) have been resolved through the work of "Kansas Jack," a fan of Torg; it was truly a labor of love for him. For those of you unfamiliar with the premise, Torg presents the Earth under attack by different realities. At the time, this RPG represented the first of RPGs oriented to multi-genre backgrounds (Shadowrun and GURPS were also in this wave). The system employed a unique D20 (!) system that allowed magic, psionics, ballistic combat and miracles to interact easily. The setting allowed everything from intelligent dinosauroids and cybernetically-enhanced priests to exist! This product is a revised version of the original handbook that came in the box. Unfortunately, the accompanying worldbook with character templates is not available in a revised form. Even so, this Torg product will allow you to generate them.<br><br> <b>LIKED</b>: Very simply, it re-ignited my interest in this RPG. I loved it when it came out, but weak interest in the product by the publisher caused me to drop it.<br><br><b>DISLIKED</b>: It is not a stand-alone product. The original worldbook that accompanied it should be reissued. Also, the Drama Card that are a critical component of the resolution system is not in this product. Other Torg downloads include the cards and individual worldbooks that supplement this product.<br><br><b>QUALITY</b>: Excellent<br><br><b>VALUE</b>: Very Satisfied<br>

Very fine product. All rules that where formerly distributed among different books condensed in one except those that are in the realm sourcebook. Some changes that where necessary. This book together with the relevant realm book or the worldbook is enough to play all realms of Torg and even to play any generic SF/Fantasy/Horror or Pulp setting. No need to joggle around with lots of different books anymore.<br><br><b>LIKED</b>: Uniqueness, new ideas in Torg 1.0 that are consequently revised in this product.<br><br><b>DISLIKED</b>: Rules of the realm books are missing (intentially)<br><br><b>QUALITY</b>: Excellent<br><br><b>VALUE</b>: Very Satisfied<br>

Very nice to see Torg back in action. The new rulebook is nicely and clearly laid out (with only a few errors which the publishers are quick to correct with replacement pages). Artwork is old-stuff from previous Torg publications but well-selected and nicely placed.

Many clarifications and having many of the additional rules (like new skills) in one place is a real boon to the odl-time Torg GM.

A solid thumbs up on this one. Keep the good work coming!<br><br><b>QUALITY</b>: Very Good<br><br><b>VALUE</b>: Very Satisfied<br>

Warning: This is no complete review, just a summary of my first impressions after buying this product!

I was really excited to see a revised version of TORG available on rpgnet and jumped to the possibility of obtaining it. My expectation was to get a new, updated version of the game - as hinted by the title. But, as I quickly realised, the pdf is no complete version of the game. It just contains the rules. No Templates. No Worldbook. No Drama Deck. No Adventure. To be honest, I was quite disappointed. On page 7 there is just a hint on a TORG Accessory Pack, which is supposed to contain the Worldbook ? hopefully with the templates. This may just be me, but I?d have appreciated a more direct hint, that this pdf is just the updated rulebook, not the complete TORG RPG, as it was sold in the first incarnation. (In the product description it says TORG 1.5 or the ?Lost Rulebook?, so I might just be not attentive enough.) <br><br><b>QUALITY</b>: Acceptable<br><br><b>VALUE</b>: Disappointed<br>
