Wondering if there is an NT8 indicator out there that will plot offset lines in either points or percent from the high?

This does not need to be an actionable indicator just a visual aid.

As a quick and dirty work around, you can also do this with a Fib Retracement drawing tool (F8) with a custom template.

Let's say you want to draw 4 lines that are equally spaced from the most recent high. You can create a Fib Ret template with lines at 0,25,50,75,100 percent. Then draw the Fib tool from the high point to the low point and you'll get 4 equally spaced lines below the high point.

Hope this helps.
