From publisher blurb:
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.
