Re: Unwanted Contradictions

Talismans are probably the best answer if you want contradictory machinery to function in a lower-tech zone (and don't want to make everyone a stormer).

Re: Nile Empire Preview #12 - Pulp Villains.

Insidia reminds me a bit of Marvel’s WWII villain Baron Blood. Though Blood was actually a real vampire who had been experimented on by the Nazis to remove some of the vampire vulnerabilities. But.. shouldn’t Insidia have Insidious?!

Re: Character Generator for Windows

There's a new version up that has fixed some issues, including a show-stopper that I dunno how it snuck in there. I also added "beast riding" to the list of vehicle skills, and fixed the skill listed for horses and whatnot. Latest version is 1.4.4.7.

Re: Nile Empire Preview #11 - Delphi Council and the Mystery Men

It’s awfully convenient for Colonel Cairo that the Mystery Men would re-discover Mobius just after he invaded a place that contains a city named Cairo! Although I suppose it also would have still kinda worked out if Mobius had invaded Missouri... Yes, but the pronounciation would have confused ever...

Re: Boring Glories

One possibility is to reintroduce the oTorg rule that you could only play a Glory card in a Dramatic scene.

Re: Nile Empire Preview #10 - Adventuring in the Nile Empire

Though with the pendulum blades, one could argue that, depending on the position, they might ignore Torso armor. Maybe treat it as a called shot to the head or legs.

Cool stuff. I like incorporating the find test as just another means of avoidance to cut down on the rolling.

Re: Nile Empire Preview #9 - Rocket Rangers and Scarab Warriors

Doesn’t look steampunk to me. Steampunk typically has gears, dials, and lots of other complicated clockwork/steamwork stuff on it. Not steampunk at all. The only think vaguely steampunk-ish is the bronze coloring of the metal but I think that was an homage to the Rocketeer , another pulp era action...

Re: Nile Empire Preview #9 - Rocket Rangers and Scarab Warriors

I like the more steam punk-y look of the Ranger. (EDIT: or I should say the more Rockeeter look, I was grasping for a word and found the wrong one) At first I was a little mystified at how the suit was so much better than the Flight perk - you even get a free upgrade! But the suit has plenty of down...
