Re: Migratory Birds

Without some ecological morphing, like we get in the Living Land, it might be that animals don't transform at all. Or they replenish possibility energy faster than humans do, and so staying put for a few months is enough. That said, we're already in an extinction level event. It's unlikely that thin...

Re: Pickpocket Rules

So what I should've said is that I consider pickpocket to be trained-only. At least then we'd have something to disagree about (vehemently) at the table. :D But I think, in general, if you find yourself wanting to throw players a bone for attempting something unskilled, the thing they're attempting...

Re: Nile Empire Sourcebook Questions

When Mobius/Sutenhotep first became Pharoah, he would have been aspiring to be the titular head of the Amaatism religion and, at that time, presumably have had no difficulty as a miracle worker. Though his ego has undoubtedly grown as a High Lord, I have no trouble with the concept that he believes...

Re: Called Shots

This only really matters in terms of the bigger enemies. Especially if that enemy is a Dragon, with approximately soccer ball sized eyes, then there's the added benefit of avoiding his natural armor. This doesn't help with exploding dice, but the toughness reduction can more than make up for it as ...

Re: Playing fast and loose with lethal/non-lethal damage

Accidentally killing someone is, sadly, a thing that can totally happen, but that should be a Mishap, not a huge success. Since ranged attacks are the only ones that don't have a non-lethal option, this seems reasonable. Someone who goes "oops" for killing someone after firing at them wit...

Re: Dinosaurs and Transformation

“Dino” is a species not a race. Animals transform into other animals frequently. Dinosaurs are a class (probably) of many orders, families, genera, and species ;), but yeah, race requires ignorant humans making arbitrary superficial categories, not any reflection of nature or biology or expression ...

Re: Nile Empire Preview #13 - Gear, Gadgets, and Gizmos!

Holy are 14. Magic, unless specified are 13 I think. It's quite strange that general gear are either "modern" technology or prehistoric. It sells a setting where magic, spiritual, and tech are widely separated, which doesn't seem like Nile Empire's vibe. Surely there must be some mathemat...

Re: Taking Nile perk multiple times

So if you pick up the blast enhancement, can you choose to not use it or is it always on? I'd say it can be chosen before the attack roll. Keeping in mind that a small blast radius is typically only going to hit one target anyway. It requires special circumstances, such as targets being close toget...
