In Nomine Revisited: Elementalism.

Elementalism – Google Docs

Elementalism

 

This odd version of Sorcery is new — so new, in fact, that neither Heaven nor Hell has noticed it yet. Note the use of the word ‘yet.’ After the smoke clears, most researchers on both sides are going to find the entire nature of Elementalism to be highly confusing. It’s clear that the skills and rituals listed below are Sorcerous: the requirements for users are the same as for regular Sorcerers, and the disciplines seem to draw upon the intersection of human will and the Symphony in roughly the same way.

 

It’s just that nobody will be quite ready to believe that comic books can be a legitimate route to apotheosis.

Beliar is like a clown, really: he only smiles on the outside. Inside, he cries. Admittedly, said crying is usually along the lines of “Will those God-damned talking monkeys please stop BOTHERING me?!”, but it still sort of counts. (more…)

‘Infernal Security and the Grand Luciferian Charter’ [In Nomine]

Infernal Security and the Grand Luciferian Charter – Google Docs

Infernal Security and the Grand Luciferian Charter

The public face of Infernal Security (which is the semi-public face of the Game, which is the ever-shifting manifestation of Asmodeus, its Prince) recently decided on a new strategy that alternately terrifies and infuriates those demons that have gotten caught up by said strategy.  To wit: InfSec currently now enforces, in an almost-not arbitrary fashion, a document called the ‘Grand Luciferian Charter.’ For those demons who weren’t paying attention during the dumb parts of their training: the Charter is a set of regulations — issued by the Lightbringer himself — that prohibits egregious torture and unwarranted destruction of damned souls.  While archaic, the Charter is, as the Gamesters themselves cheerfully note, an official part of the Rules, and ignorance of the Rules is no excuse.

My 2018 WashingCon RPG schedule. (Dungeon Fantasy and In Nomine)

WashingCon is on September 8th and 9th: I will be running two games.  On Saturday (2 PM) I will be running the Hall of Judgement adventure for GURPS Dungeon Fantasy — yup, the one from the Kickstarter.  All official-like, too; by which I mean I told Doug Cole I’d run it at WashingCon if he liked, and Doug liked.  Which is hardly surprising, of course.

The second game is on Sunday (10 AM), and will be The Great Cow Race of 2003.  What’s that?  I’m giving away the adventure with that link? Folks, read the write-up again.  It’s not an adventure: it’s four hours of applied Chaos and Old Night.  I never ran that adventure the same way twice; shoot, I never ran it the same way twice from hour to hour inside the adventure itself.  I fear nothing from having my players know ahead of time what the adventure might be; in fact, I welcome their growing madness.

:pause:

MADNESS!

Cult of the Corn Dog [In Nomine].

Cult of the Corn Dog [In Nomine]

 

This Infernal-dominated organization is the epitome of how Dark Humor thinks: to wit, the Cult of the Corn Dog is an actual evil cult that is masquerading as a online group of sarcastic mockers who are just pretending to be an evil cult.  It’s a clever conceit, really.  It’s calculated to get the talking monkeys both coming, and going.

Fate-Stealers, Incorporated [In Nomine].

Fate-Stealers Incorporated – Google Docs

Fate-Stealers, Incorporated

On first glance, it might seem counterintuitive for Hell to permit an organization whose primary, publicly-stated goal is to deliberately make it harder for Servitors of Fate to do their jobs (which is, after all, to drag people down to Hell).  It also seems that way on second, third, and subsequent glances, too; which is why both Kronos (Prince of Fate) and Asmodeus (Prince of the Game) keep petitioning Lucifer to let them shut down Fate-Stealers. And then plow the ground with the Infernal equivalent of salt, most likely.

In Nomine Revisited: Rocket’s Red Glaring.

I wrote this decades ago, and I flatter myself that it is not entirely wretched. For those wondering, ‘Nybbas’ is the Demon Prince of the Media in the In Nomine RPG, and he’s everything that you would expect of a Demon Prince whose specialty is popular entertainment.  Fun to write, too. You’ll figure out who the good guy is, of course.
