Re: Preview #7 - The Nile Empire and Tharkold

No. The only playable races in the core book are humans, elves, dwarves, and edeinos.

Re: Preview #7 - The Nile Empire and Tharkold

Right, and they could. But the conditions that they live under, plus the effect of the Law of Domination and the Law of Ferocity means that they can't attain it. It would be like...if you were stranded in a deserted island and you were an engineer. You'd know how to construct a ship. But there's no...

Re: Preview #7 - The Nile Empire and Tharkold

TBH this is a level of detail we haven't really gotten into yet, except it's not a 'hot' radioactive wasteland. It's enough that you'll get mutants, but not so much that you just die of radiation poisoning (unless you're near something special). So, basically think Fallout. Ooo! Can you tell us mor...

Re: Preview #7 - The Nile Empire and Tharkold

Generally speaking, the Race uses psionics, the technodemons use magic. It's not that either can't do the other, but that's what they're used to. This would make sense if the technodemons came from a reality with a lower Social axiom. Although... if the technodemons invaded the reality of the Race,...

Re: Preview #7 - The Nile Empire and Tharkold

So, Tharkold has a high Social Axiom, but the practicalities on the ground as well as the World Laws have conspired to make those sort of organizations non-existent. In other words, the people of the Race can _conceive_ of an advanced society...but they can't actually attain it. Which is almost wor...

Re: Preview #7 - The Nile Empire and Tharkold

Maybe I'll be convinced later, but right now I really don't see Tharkold having a Social axiom of 25. The picture I have in my head from the update is Mad Max/Terminator meets Hellraiser. None of those settings feature organized nation-states, much less multinational non-state actors like the Red C...

Re: Preview #7 - The Nile Empire and Tharkold

I figure the radiation in the fallout zone will be a "movie" style threat, where you want to check found food and water and stay away from "bad" areas, but not omnipresent cancer-causing suckiness. Exactly. I already have an idea for having a snowstorm where instead of a tiny mo...

Re: Preview #7 - The Nile Empire and Tharkold

I really like your frequency of announcements... it is nice to get regular infos about the work in progress :) Weekly until the Kickstarter launches. :-) So Nile Empire and Tharkold ? Let's see... Tharkold is really exciting. I love the fact that technodemons are rare. I also like that idea ! I nev...
