Here is what i am going to have
6 Races mainly from the SWFC but i might adapt the Ratfolk and the Andari
2 AB Psionics and Engineers who use and advanced quantum computers and nano-tech to affect the environment
Any advice would be appreciated
Why would you want to do that?! Seriously, it sounds like a cool direction to take the setting and it shouldn't be a problem at all. RunePunk
is posited as dark steampunk fantasy, but some folks put it firmly in science fantasy territory which is not true (especially if one accurately considers steampunk a subset of science fiction). You may find some value in the Guidebooks we've been releasing as they reveal more details of the setting. There is definitely highly advanced past technologies which pop up as well as ever-present vestiges of the past, such as with the star barges and current mystical tech, such as far doors.
The big question would be do you want to discard the RuneStorms? It depends on the focus/flavor of your setting. I might suggest including overwrought as a variant as well, because it reinforces the blending of magic and tech in the setting. Other than that, RunePunk
can deftly handle any races you want to throw in there without any muss or fuss.
How do you intend to handle nano-tech augmentation? I'd definitely encourage it to be Edge-based as the dichotomy of wealth could cause serious imbalances in play.
Curious to hear more about the direction you're going to take things.
