Classic Roleplaying Game Torg Returns as Torg Eternity

Ulisses Spiele US is bringing about the return of a gaming classic. The Torg RPG came out originally from West End Games in 1990. Now, fully updated into Torg: Eternity, the game is getting a new release with both original creators and long-time fans making up the design team.

Greg Gorden, one of the original creators of the game has said, “I really like this re-imagining of the Torg mythos. The streamlining and modernization of the game mechanics feel spot on. I cannot wait to play this game!”

The game rights are currently owned by Markus Plotz, president of Ulisses Spiele. He’s been a long-time fan of the game and has long wanted to create this new version. He said, “Torg is a one of a kind RPG. The setting is unique and for over 15 years, I dreamed about releasing a new and updated version. Now, with the help of the amazing Shane Hensley, that dream finally becomes reality!”

Torg: Eternity will debut in hardback format in 2016.

    WEG released a hardcover rule book (with little to no setting info) in 2005. If I remember correctly, it was meant as a first of two books–rules first, and setting next.

    Instead it was a last hurrah for WEG, who published Paranoia, Ghostbusters, and Star Wars…and then fell trying to push their D6 system against the juggernaut of the D20 system.

    It’ll be good to have a new version out, but the old rules were a bit of a mess. It was the setting(s) that made the game, though some of them need a little polish as well.

    Alright, has anyone had any further news on this, such as a Newsletter we can sign up to? I WILL be picking this game up, PERIOD, but I just want to know if they intend to let other writers create adventures for them, are they re-releasing all of the original adventures in updated and, perhaps, expanded formats, do they have a Facebook page, yet -I’ll go check this one out for myself in a minute-, and will Infiniverse be expanded into a new means of gaining adventures, items, etc.? Most importantly, has there been an update on WHEN this will be released?
