This week, we're doing a couple previews of the Fires of Ra adventure book, which is featured in the Nile Empire Kickstarter.
We'll let the preview speak for itself, although be warned - there are definitely a few spoilers in this one...
“All of the cosms are going to be tweaked in some way, some a bit, some a lot. But not the Nile Empire. It’s perfect.”
That’s an imperfect paraphrase of what I told a Torg fan at GenCon 2015 after we had announced the coming of Torg Eternity the month previous, and it’s completely, utterly, 100% true.
Well...not so much. I said that in something of a tongue-in-cheek manner, but the Nile Empire was arguably the most popular of the original Torg cosms, which meant that we had to be especially careful in updating it.
Like the Living Land, the Delphi Council assigns Storm Knights to covert (and overt) missions in the Nile Empire to defeat Doctor Mobius. Additionally, they coordinate activities and attacks with local resistance groups, particularly in East Africa and Iraq where insurrections are flaring.
