Re: Nile Empire Kickstarter stretch goal PDFs going out

I don't think most readers would read that and come away from the view that India is a majority Muslim country. I think they would. I would assume that the list is in order of majority, and except for a Dr. Who episode I never knew about the partition. It isn't something that is taught in English s...

Re: Nile/Orrorsh Mixed Zone ideas

Much of my party has low Charisma so Corruption there's no such thing as a little corruption for them. It would serve them right for dump statting something though. Well, that's the beauty of it. If they take the corruption, they gain power at a too-high cost. You win. If they refuse it, you put th...

Re: Nile Empire Kickstarter stretch goal PDFs going out

I'd heard of Asatru and other neo-Norse revivals, as well as neo-Celtic, but had no idea about Kemeticism or Hellenism - you have to marvel about the wondrous variety of religious practice and belief! I think Deanna has done a great job, both in summarising a tremendously difficult and divisive top...

Re: Converting Before the Dawn [repost]

Agreed on the gospogs. They don't get enough love and it introduces the PCs to them with their whole ecosystem. Have the device ripping possibilities from hundreds of captured people through torture that powers the device, that's Tharkold. Maybe even having a whole interment camp for local Russian t...

Re: New/Old Conversions for Eternity

This actually isn't a conversion, but I was thinking, wouldn't it be neat if a character could have a flamethrower built into their cybernetic arm? Which seemed more like a Tharkold thing than the Cyberpapacy. I looked through the old books but couldn't find any flame weapons. But there was a bit i...

Re: magic: 15, tech: 24, spirit: 0, social: 21

Spirit 0 is really brutal, even worse than a low social axiom. Spirit 0: Gods, Spirituality, faith, and the afterlife aren't even concepts. To then square that with Magic 15: Communications with other dimensions is possible. I have a couple of ideas, but it is taking some mental contortions to just...

Re: Nile/Orrorsh Mixed Zone ideas

I would suggest to keep it claustrophobic. Have the dungeon being just big enough to hunch walk down. A labyrinth with dark side tunnels, pygmy and poison sticks. I wouldn't have a map either. Just a list of obstacles they come across, the gorier the better. Also have the labyrinth change configurat...

I think that's the point!

My group are just about to fight the zombies in the lost city on Fires Of Ra. They haven't been to Orrosh yet, so it will be a shock when there told they can't soak.

Those darn Nile mathematicians and their synchronicity.


Ha ha ha!! You do wonder if they are influencing through the 4th wall.
