Re: Preview #8 - Pan-Pacifica and Orrorsh

It wouldn't be too hard to generate a mixed zone between the Nile Empire and Orrorsh as well; they are only the space of a couple triangles away - now that would be an oddball area. I imagine it might come out like those "alternate reality" comics where the heroes lose anyway despite thei...

Re: Preview #7 - The Nile Empire and Tharkold

We finalized some things. Radioactivity is in pockets, and no climate shift in the Blasted Land. Cool. Radiation pockets will pose a substantial threat while avoid the question of why the hell would anybody live here? I'm guessing this may be a place of refugees and fugitives. It's a great place fo...

Re: Preview #7 - The Nile Empire and Tharkold

I have this weird idea of Storm Knights smuggling in reels of the original Star Wars trilogy and just blowing the minds of the denizens of the Nile. You know that Mobius would bankrupt the nation trying to build the Death Star. I had the Mobius in my campaign launch weird science rocketships to Mar...

Re: Preview #5 - Aysle and the Cyberpapacy

You could probably even mock up a workable giant with the increased strength and increased toughness perks and access to the original Aysle book/PDF, if a player really wants one. I posted this on the Tharkold thread, but I bet this can apply to fantasy races in Aysle too. Since Nile powers are ton...

I suspect that enterprising GMs could jury-rig the Nile pulp powers to double as Tharkold mutations. Might not be official, but I bet it could work.

Re: Preview #7 - The Nile Empire and Tharkold

None of those settings feature organized nation-states, much less multinational non-state actors like the Red Cross, Doctors without Borders or Exxon-Mobile, which are the hallmarks of Social 25. Maybe it does. Maybe that's why technodemons are "lazy." Hints of ancient Rome perhaps? The S...

Re: Bioware

Bioware research can play a role in the Possibility Wars. The Cyberpapacy likely would seek to ban it outright. The real reason, of course, is because it's easier to chip cyberware for tracking and loyalty purposes. Naturally, they'll label it blasphemous and seek to destroy any research related to ...

Re: Preview #7 - The Nile Empire and Tharkold

I admit I'm having some trouble reconciling in my imagination, "post nuclear wasteland" with "generally chilly eastern Russia." I blame post-apocalyptic fiction for almost always going with a hot desert setting. It's certainly not a bad combination to have a wintry fallout zone,...

Re: Preview #7 - The Nile Empire and Tharkold

No other reality features as many exclamation points as the Nile Empire! The most accurate anything you could say about Torg. Great marketing slogan. Okay, so Nile is pretty much the same. I didn't like the morality thing anyway, so I'm glad it's gone. The rise of heroes makes better sense anyway. ...
