Re: Nile Empire Preview #5 - Amaatism

I'd totally love to see Mummy as a race option rather than a perk :) I would too, even if the mechanism was a free perk. Perk: Your race becomes Mummy. Race: Mummy (insert rules here). Because we're going to have to address becoming a werewolf at some point and this seems like the easiest way to do...

Re: Nile Empire Preview #5 - Amaatism

If the Mummy perk cannot be purchased with XP, how does this balance? Obviously it's difficult to obtain, but is it structured like a race for game balance or is there more to it?

Re: Changes to Core Earth's Axioms

In keeping with the cinematic themes of Torg, I see it more like this: Sorcery Pre-Invasion: Movies like "The Craft," "Practical Magic," and "Witches of Eastwick" show us a world where small sects of ancient tradition keep magic use alive in family bloodlines and subcul...

Re: Viruses, bacteria, and contradictions

Genetically engineered organisms would be considered to have a Tech Axiom. Effectively the genetic enhancements would be considered 'tools' and deactivate if contradictory and the organism disconnects. That’s an elegant solution and makes weaponized diseases more dangerous than I’d considered. I wa...
