That's a nice bit of flavor, I like it!

Re: Why does taking the same arcane perk just give +1 ability?

However, we did want those people who _really_ wanted to have lots of spells be able to have that option. That's kinda like the Axiom Increase Perk. It's not intended to be balanced with anything. It's there for people who really wanted it. Since that's pretty much exactly what I want to be possibl...

Re: Nile Empire Sourcebook Questions

Okay, thanks; I see now how I was misinterpreting it. I'm not sure if it needs a slight rephrasing to avoid that happening, or if it was just a unique quirk of my brain. Either way, thanks for clearing that up; it makes much more sense now. :)

Why does taking the same arcane perk just give +1 ability?

If you take a new arcane perk (e.g., Spellcaster), you get three new abilities (miracles/spells/powers). If you take an "add-on" perk (like Optant or Pulp Sorcerer), you get two or three new abilities, and an expanded spell list. But if you take the same arcane perk you already have, again...

Re: Nile Empire Sourcebook Questions

Back to some actual NE questions . . . :) 1. Lethal Shot perk -- why the flat skill levels instead of the usual "at least X adds in (skill)"? It's just a bit jarring that this is the only perk (and Beta perk) so far that uses that type of prereq, so I'm curious what the reasoning was. 2. C...

Re: Nile Empire Sourcebook Questions

The Unbreakable Shield power seems to imply heavily that it's an object, but if it doesn't take that limitation, I assume it can be a created "energy shield" or some such. However, if it doesn't have the Boomerang enhancement and I throw it, what happens? Basically I'm trying to figure ou...

Re: Nile Empire Sourcebook Questions

I'm curious why the Ray power places some of the energy-specific enhancements with that energy type, but others with the general enhancements. I find that unhelpful and inconsistent. For example, both the BBQ enhancement and Fire enhancement are specific to just Heat-Ray, but for some reason Fire i...

Re: Nile Empire Sourcebook Questions

Let's say I have Beastmaster and my trusty ape. I take Attribute to give her Mind +1. Then I take Telepathic because that's awesome. Now I add Menagerie and I have a panther. Do the other enhancements carry over to my panther? Can I speak with it telepathically? Can I use Attribute to give it Dexter...
