The Nile Empire, softback supplement for Torg
“Earth is transformed into a reality inspired by a madman’s dreams …
The Possibility Wars erupt in the Near Now of Earth’s history, shattering our reality and changing the world into someplace else.
Egypt, along with much of North and Central Africa, has been invaded by Dr. Mobius, High Lord and Pharaoh of the new Empire of the Nile. A wave of change has washed across the dark continent, transforming the land like the floods of old. Egyptian gods have regained power in a world filled with lost artifacts and treasures hidden millennia ago.
The realm has fantastic high-tech devices constructed from 1930’s pulp science fiction technology – ray guns, invisibility belts, s pace ships. The heritage of Ancient Egypt is mixed with cities full of gangsters, masked heroes, and hooded villains. Shocktroopers in ancient garb attack in WWII-style armoured columns. Nations topple before the might of Mobius.
You, the heroes known ns Storm Knights, are Earth’s only chance.
