So that's where that was from! The misty depths of my mind remembered Cursor, but nothing else.

I also want to know about some cool thing with the terracotta warriors. Maybe some of the mysterious/mystical hard-points are somehow "fighting back" against the low magic, low spirit axioms of the invaders.

Re: Things you'd like to know about Tharkold

I find Tharkold interesting, but I haven't read the OTorg stuff so I don't know if I "get" it yet. So I'm just basically throwing out some things that would be cool that may or may not already have been there in OTorg. -Bizarre stuff in the civilized regions. I think connections with stran...

Re: Perks, Powers, and Savage Worlds

So I was trying to figure out the source of the different preference/opinion on how this should work, and I think I've identified something. I think some of it has to do with the type of path of character development you see or want to see in spellcasters. For most non-spellcaster characters, it see...

Re: Some creative help with a tricky character concept

Thanks all! I think I have an idea now I want to go with. I still could use suggestions about parts of it. The main questions I could use feedback on are: 1. Can glasses count as a mask? Lord Grimdark in Secrets of the Nile Empire seems to be pulling that off, unless the art and text aren’t aligning...

Either works.

Weird Science gadgets and eternium splinters

I got the impression from the core Nile Empire book that all Weird Science gadgets you can get from the equipment lists (except Masks) are powered by eternium splinters, which burn out on a Malfunction of 1-2. But in the Secrets of the Nile Empire, many of the devices list other effects on their Mal...

Some creative help with a tricky character concept

Hello creative folks! I have this idea for a Nile Empire Storm Knight that is going to be really tricky to pull off correctly in one particular area, and I could use some help from those willing to give the challenge a stab. Character Concept: Indiana Jones meets Lara Croft. A wealthy and adventurou...

Re: Perks, Powers, and Savage Worlds

Thanks for the thoughts (especially the knowledge that Shane Hensley was involved in OTorg, that's just cool to know!) I'd like to bring the focus away from fellow GM's personal assessment of balance here, and back to the point of the thread: Shane Hensley, the source of the "3 Powers from the ...

Re: Standard issue gun for Nile shocktroopers?

I found the answer on page 97 of the Nile Empire book. Most of them have the rifles, but many instead get the SMGs. So that sounds like it fits pretty well with what I was thinking. Give the SMGs where it makes more sense for the assignment, but standard infantry carry the rifles.
