In Nomine Revisited: The Insidious Psionic Llama Conspiracy.

Mentioned it earlier.

The Insidious Psionic Llama Conspiracy

(Uses my fan-generated In Nomine Psionic rules)

Llamas (regular)
Corporeal Forces: 2              Strength: 3 Agility: 5
Ethereal Forces: 0                 Intelligence: 0 Precision: 0
Celestial Forces: 1                Will: 2 Perception: 2

Skills: Fighting/1, Running/1
Advantages: Psionic (Telereceive only)
Psionic Discipline: Telepathy/3
Psionic Skills: Emotion Sense/2, Telereceive/3

Llamas are domesticated quadruped herbivores indigenous to South America: like their close cousins the camels, they make useful pack animals (albeit ones that spit), but llamas are notably better-tempered about their lot in life.  This particular species is generally used more for their carrying capacity than for anything else, as special variants were created for their wool.  Llamas also make fairly decent sheep-herders, for herbivores.  In other words, there’s not precisely a call for them in North America – a place already with all the horses, sheep and domesticated dogs that one could want.

So why are there llama-breeding farms cropping up here, anyway? (more…)

In Nomine Revisited: Salem, Mercurian Archangel of Civics.

This is over a decade and a half old at this point; it’s also based off of the canonical Angel of Cities for In Nomine. Nice to see that I was sensible, even back in the day.

Salem

Mercurian Archangel of Civics

 

The world is built from all of us.  Build it anew each day.

She is the newest Archangel; and from her point of view, her apotheosis comes none too soon.  For too long Heaven has permitted human governments and politics to develop and evolve without specific, Superior-level oversight.  This is not a criticism of the Host, of course: there is a War going on, and when one’s back is to the wall one is well-advised to emphasize utility over elegance.  Still, the matter required rectifying, and Salem is the avatar of that rectification.  There will be changes made, wrongs redressed — and not a few of the Enemy are about to suddenly discover that their control of human society is perhaps not so secure as they may have thought.

These are indeed interesting times.

In Nomine Revisited: Fear and Loathing in the Marches.

Fear and Loathing in the Marches – Google Docs

I wrote this one, back when Hunter S. Thompson went out the way that I think we all expected him to go out, the poor bastard. I think that it holds up well.  It was one of those stories where all I needed was the first line, and I was off and running.

In Nomine Revisited: The Great Cow Race of 2003.

I ran this one at a couple of conventions.  Things got a little weird out towards the end, honestly.

Additional Bad Ideas by Jaymiel (and maybe others?)

It all started with a gang of Ofanim of the Wind – you know, stories that begin with that phrase never seem to end well. (more…)

In Nomine Revisited: Hellcows of Ronald

This wasn’t really all that serious, either.

HellCows of Ronald – Google Docs

HellCows of Ronald

 

The Prince of Cows absolutely refuses to seek out human servants (he gets a few, anyway, mostly servants of various demons ‘assigned’ to the Service of Cows). However, Ronald needs corporeal agents as badly as any other Demon Prince, so he’s come up with a fairly, ah, unique way of getting them.

 

Yes, he has Hellsworn cows.

In Nomine Revisited: Ronald, Prince of Cows.

Yes. Actual cows.  It was not the most serious of writeups.

Cow.

 

Every organization has them, you know. Those who just don’t fit in properly. Those who just can’t get it. Those who can’t get a grip on reality, no matter how hard they try. You know: idiots.

In Nomine Revisited: Clarice, Lilim Princess of Ambition.

I had to go looking for this one.

Clarice, Lilim Princess of Ambition – Google Docs

Clarice
Lilim Princess of Ambition

The world is there for the taking.

Such a tragedy, the death of Mammon — he was truly an inspiration to Hell. He showed such drive, such energy, such focus on promoting both his Word, and the War. It was tragic how Mammon lapsed first to despair, and then suicide. Tragic, and criminal: those that hounded him so should have contemplated how so many vital operations of Hell were jeopardized by their petty little internal quarrel with the Generous Prince. As it is, Mammon’s loss can never be made good.

Still, one must move with the times.

Hermione, Epitome of Romance [In Nomine]

Hermione – Google Docs

It’s eight pages long, so check the link for the document.  This is part of The Matter of Poughkeepsie, which will be revised and reconfigured as the mood strikes me. Maybe a netbook. Probably a netbook, actually. I need the practice.

In Nomine Revisited: Psionics for In Nomine.

Psionics for In Nomine – Google Docs

This one I’m not reproducing in full on the site: the PDF is something like 23 pages long. It was based off of GURPS Psionics 3rd Edition, back in the day: I could probably rewrite it to take into account 4E, but GURPS In Nomine draws on 3rd Edition and it’s going to be a long time, if ever, that that sourcebook gets adapted to the new edition.  I’m not really even expecting them to ever do it, honestly.

Anyway, enjoy. I had forgotten that I wrote this up. Maybe somebody out there can use it…
