Re: Follower Perks

Well, now that that's been established, I do wonder at the disparity between Followers and Animal Companions (including Beastmaster companions). In the Followers' favor, I would say: 1. The animals are pretty inflexible (and in many cases, impracticable), while you could create a lite version of ju...

Re: Achilles stats as played by Brad Pitt on Troy?

I would say Achilles had an above average Dex and Str, probably 3 adds in Melle, 1 or 2 each in Missile and Dodge, and a few combat related Perks. Personally, the only person from the Illiad I see as Possibility Rated was Odysseus, and he needed it. If we are talking about the Iliad, I'd disagree. ...

Pulp Power House Rule

I placed the topic here instead of rules questions, because it's not really a question. Pulp powers come in 3 "backgrounds": innate ability, Magic, and Weird Science. It was brought up before that the "magic" background has the "benefit" of being able to affect things l...

Re: Nile Empire Sourcebook Questions

Going back to Gadgeteer, what if a character had Gadgeteer and, for example, Super Attribute - Mind, and then started an adventure with a gadget that also provided Super Attribute. 1) could the gadget even be taken, since it emulates a perk the character already has? 2) if yes, could the attribute ...

Re: Nile Empire Sourcebook Questions

The Gadgeteer perk allows the character to start an adventure with 2-3 minor weird science gadgets, which must be different than the gadgets chosen for the previous adventure. There are 3 such items in the Gear chapter - the ray gun, rocket pack, and force field belt. 1) I’m assuming the player can...

Re: Major or Minor limitation?

Maybe he's now more susceptible to disconnection. So was thinking maybe 1 case contradictions are now 1-2 and four case now 1-8. Would you consider this a minor or major limitation? Minor for only when that power is used? Major for any contradictions? I could be wrong, and playtesting would see, bu...

Re: Nile Backer Archetypes

I just looked up my rules for the Trademark Item Perk It's similar to favored, except on any extra d20 roll (Up, Possibility, Drama, Hero, etc.) if you dislike the roll, you can roll again. And yes, I understand it's not "always" useful, but it's pretty good when you are in a pinch. You ne...

Re: Nile Backer Archetypes

, I would love to see some sort of trademark vehicle, you have bonded with that vehicle to the point where repairing and piloting are favored. This would be an extremely limited Perk. Unlike Trademark {Weapon; Air Vehicle; Land Vehicle; First Aid Kit; anything else...}, any Water Vehicle has a narr...
