Coming Soon: This page describes a sheet that is under construction. It has not yet been posted to the repository. To learn more, visit this forum thread.

TorgE CS2 full.jpeg

Contents

Top Section

Description

You can enter name and other details at the top of the sheet. Some things to be aware of:

  • Home Cosm: this is a dropdown, and will fill in the Axiom details. You can edit the axioms (if you have boosted them through Perks, etc), but if you change the home cosm those bonuses will be lost.
  • Total XP: entering an XP total will automatically fill in your Clearance Level. In the next version of the sheet, you'll have a place to enter your advancements and their XP cost, and the Unspent XP will be calculated automatically. For now, it is manual.

Tab Bar and Settings Cog

Through the tab you can select the different sheet types

  • Abilities: all the stuff you need to play a character during a session. Attributes, skills, defences, attacks, and so on.
  • Story: The background information of your character - history, adventure events you want to record, moments of glory, experience record, and so on.
  • Threat: a condensed character sheet for the GM to manage minor NPCs and monsters.
  • Adventure: a tool to help GMs manage adventures. A place to record notes, useful rolls, act and scene information, and so on.

At the time of writing, only the Abilities section is complete. The rest are coming.

TorgE settings.jpeg

Settings Cog: At the far right of the bar is a cog, which can be used to access some important sheet settings. At the time of writing there are three settings:

  • Use Tokens for Roll Tracking: if you play with tokens, select this to make your life easier. With it checked, when clicking the Possibilities and UP buttons, you last roll will be used automatically. If unchecked, you will be prompted to enter the value instead.
  • Toggle Hidden Panels: It's easy to forget which heading reveals which popup. Click this to reveal the Skill Selection, Permanent Stat Bonuses, and Cosm Possibilities popups at the same time.
  • Toggle Announcement: when the sheet receives a major update, a notification will be visible on the sheet. You can click it away, but might want to read it again. This will display it again.

Abilities

Buttons and Headings

Every attribute name, skill name, attack name, and large heading is a button. For skill, attributes, and weapons and powers, they roll and generate an action total.
The roll's output also includes buttons for using UP and Possibilities on that roll.

Each of the Headings on the Abilities page does something when clicked.

Attributes: makes a roll to generate a Bonus, that isn't liked to a skill or attribute. This is perfect for Multi-Actions, where you make a single roll then have to apply it to multiple different skills.

Defences: this makes an Active Defence roll, to generate a bonus you can apply to each of your defences as needed.

TorgE perks.jpeg

Perks, Equipment, Weapons and Powers, and Armour: each item in these sections has a place to put a longer description that is hidden by default. You can click the checkbox at the right side to expose it, or you can click the section's Heading to reveal all the hidden sections at once, and click again to hide them all.

TorgE skills.jpeg

Several headings reveal a popup which has some useful options:

Skills: reveals a list of all skills, and you can choose which are visible.

Status: reveals a list of cosms, and you can enter any cosm-specific Possibilities you have acquired. If you have a Living Land Possibility, you can enter it here.

TorgE derived.jpeg

Derived Abilities: the sheet calculates your move, shock, wound, and toughness scores automatically. If you have gained permanent bonuses to those through Perks or other means, you can click this heading to reveal a popup where you can enter those increases.

Skills, Attributes, and Defences

The totals in all these sections are calculated automatically, and might be affected by other sections.

Buttons and Macros: Each skill and attribute name is a button for rolling that value. You can call those buttons in macros, and use the ability score directly (with spaces removed). @{EnergyWeapons} will give you the total score, including MODifier, and %{EnergyWeapons} will roll the skill just as if you clicked the button.

Armor and DEX: If you are wearing armour that limits your Max Dex, your total DEX may appear to be lower than it should. This is the affect of armour, and when you reove it, your DEX will return to normal.

Defences and Vulnerable: if you have applied levels of Vulnerable under status, your defences will be reduced as appropriate.

The Mod Column: is for temporary modifiers, such as if someone has cast a spell to boost your Strength. MOD bonuses to STR or SPI don't affect Toughness or Shock, as per the rules.
If you have a modifier that just affects a single roll, don't enter it here. When you make a roll you'll be prompted for a modifier for that roll.

Derived Ratings and Status

The Derived Ratings section contains your move, run, shock, and wounds scores. The Status section contains sections for Possibilities, Shock, Wounds, Vulnerable, Stymied, and Fatigue, and buttons to alter them.

TorgE status.jpeg
  • Possibilities by default start at 3, but you can raise or lower them as needed. Don't forget: if you have cosm-specific possibilities you can access them through the status heading.
  • Vulnerable and Stymied can be 0, -2 and -4, and will apply their effects. If your are Stymied your actions will be reduced; if you are Vulnerable your defences will be reduced.
  • The Wounds box will show your wound penalty, which is applied to action rolls. Wound penalties cannot exceed -3, even for characters who have more than 3 Wounds. Pressing the + button increases your Wound penalty (to a max of 3), and also adds one to your Wounds suffered (to a max of whatever your Wounds Max is). Pressing the - reduces both.
  • Shock: this is a mirror of the Shock attribute. Pressing the + here adds one Shock damage. When you go above your Shock attribute, it changes to KO.
  • Fatigue: When you suffer a fatigue result from the Drama Deck, you mark 2 Shock, which might be increased by armour, and reduced by perks. Click the + here to apply it to your shock automatically. Note: this has nothing to do with magical backlash which can fluctuate a lot and has to be handled manually.


You can link Shock and Wounds to token bars. Use the attributes @{shock} and @{wound}. The status section will update automatically.

Note that it is recommended when using this sheet to mark damage on shock and wounds. Don't mark remaining damage. Because of the way Torg Eternity does damage, its better to mark damage upwards, not downwards.
You don't pas out when you have taken shock equal to your shock attribute, for example, That's how much you can take before you pass out. You pass out when you take one more. Likewise for wounds: you don't test defeat until you take one more than your wounds attribute.

Equipment and Perks

These are the simplest sections. Enter the item name, axiom or description, and use the checkbox to open a bigger section to put a more detailed description if needed.

Don't forget you can click the section heading to hide or reveal the descriptions of all items at once.

Weapons and Powers

This is the most complex part of the sheet, and allows you to enter full details of a weapon or special power such as spells, miracles, and psionics.
When entries are collapsed, you'll see one line for each entry. There is a Name, a +, Axiom, Range, Ammo, Damage, another +, and a checkbox.

Most of these are self-explanatory. The Name and Damage entries are buttons, which let you make the appropriate rolls.
The + entries next to Name and Damage are for weapons or attacks that have a special bonus. Just mark them here. If you have a bonus to the skill or attribute the weapon uses, mark that in the MOD column for those traits. If there is something about the weapon that gives the bonus, mark it here.

The checkbox at the right shows the Weapon Designer. See the right for an image. This is where you enter the weapon or power details.

Weapons

TorgE weapons.jpeg
  • Name: Enter the weapon or power name here. Only the first 13 characters will be shown on the line above.
  • Axioms: You can enter two Axioms, and their values here.
  • Skill: the skill used to make attacks with the weapon or power. The value will be used by the attacks roll automatically. There is a number box next to skill: Some powers have a minimum skill requirement - enter that here.
  • Range: enter the range here.
  • Damage: here you choose whether the damage is Fixed, based on one of your attributes, or is some thing which doesn't make an attack roll (marked as Special). For fixed damage attacks, enter the amount in the next box. For those based on attributes, enter the bonus. The attribute will be included automatically.
  • Power: if its a special power, not a weapon, check this box. This will open another section, described below.
  • Attack Note: anything you put here will be printed out to chat when you make an attack.
  • Damage Note: anything here will be printed out as a footnote to damage rolls.
  • Description: at the bottom of the section is a larger box, in which you can record a lengthier description if the weapon or power if desired.

Special Powers

TorgE powers.jpeg

When entering a special power, you have all the same options as with weapons, but there are a few extra fields to fill in as well.

  • Casting: How long it takes to cast the power.
  • Target: Do you roll against a fixed DN, or one of the target's defences (like SPI or willpower). Or even if it is a standard attack.
  • Duration: How long the power lasts.
  • Success levels: if you want to enter the effects or Standard, Good, and Outstanding successes, enter them here. They aren't used by the sheet - they are for your reference.

The picture to the right shows the power of a character imported from a previous version of the sheet. The attack note should be transferred to the Target box.
