So we're not going to post anything on the forum about these, but I figured folks might be interested in what's actually coming in these PDFS.

Secrets of the Nile Empire is going to feature some stuff on the following topics:

Club Ptah (a gin joint that caters to visitors from all of the realms)

Dirigible Aircraft Carrier Pharaoh Mobius

Amazonian Religion

Monsters of Legend (including a Gamma level Minotaur, and a Beta chimera and hydra).

The Living Truth Agency

"The Monument"

Lord Grimdark and his secret volcano hideout in Mount Nyiragongo. Laser sharks.

The Obsidian Market, where you can buy minor gadgets (and includes minor gadgets ala rocket packs)

The Cairo Police (and why the Mystery Men trust them)

The Cairo Mob and their territories.

Cool. I'm looking forward to all of it, particularly the Religions PDF.

Someone once told me that the recipe for Holy Water is to take regular water and boil the hell out of it.

Fun fact: In our original idea-generation discussions for Fires of Ra, the Mandjet was going to be a dirigible aircraft carrier. I'd proposed something similar to the Mile High Club in Just Cause 2, but as Deanna pointed out, it had a rather obvious weakness... :lol:

If by obvious weakness, you mean a la the Hendenberg, I assume Weird Science has a solution for that.
