In Nomine Revisited: Lorelei, Bright Lilim of Divine Fire.

That ‘Divine Fire’ thing is a reference to about ten years’ worth of a quiet struggle of mine to redefine a certain aspect of the In Nomine in-game universe to the point where everybody would forget that it had ever been anything else. I’ve always regretting not knowing if it would have succeeded, in the end. Alas.

In Nomine Revisited: Triad 555.

Triad 555

As a rule, Servitors of Judgment don’t usually deal with actual demonic activity — they’re usually too busy hunting down infiltrators, traitors, and angelic criminals.  Love them or hate them, it’s a Truth that the Inquisition is always insanely busy. Much as they would like to be otherwise, it’s often effectively impossible to cull the worst examples of the Unjust on the Other Side — or even just put the fear of God into them.

‘Often’, however, does not equal ‘never’.

Triad 555 consists of the following:

In Nomine Revisited: Timmy

Ah, Timmy. One of my favorite In Nomine NPCs. And why I should probably never run a game in that universe where the PCs are all demons. I’d just be awful to them, and then laugh about it afterward because hey, they’re playing demons.

In Nomine Revisited: The Wave Motion Gun.

Wave Motion Gun

Relic/6 (unknown and obnoxious Song) 18pt*

Self powered  0pt

Disturbance: special -8pt

Fragility: Unbreakable, dammit +5pt

Tracking: special -2pt

Use Restriction: Ranged Weapon roll -1pt

Visibility: Automatically detected (hoo, yeah) -3pt

Total Cost:  9pt


*The Essence cost of zero adds 6 per level to the cost, and the universal reaction modifier of -3 per level takes it right back.

Yup, Sparky only thought that he had cleaned out Vapula’s stash of vintage anime tapes. Incidentally, the VCR of the Prince of Technology is a subtle and frightening artifact, indeed — but that’s an artifact for another time.

In Nomine Revisited: The Lepid Gun.

Lepid Gun

Power 4 Acc +2 Range 40 Shots 12

It’s odd to say this about any item of Vaputech, but the Lepid Gun is honestly a work both of art and of craftsmanship — even if it was made by the Baroque Weapons Division (motto: “For all your Evil Mastermind needs”).  The craftsmanship is obvious: there are none of the usual Vapulan shoddiness, haste, or poor design flaws enshrined in the gun. It looks exactly like what it is: a properly machined over-and-under pump action shotgun with no corners cut, and all the sensible bells and whistles.  The artistry is self-evident, too, showing up mostly in the carefully selected materials that it’s constructed from — and the way that someone with a real aesthetic sense carefully chose how those materials were put together to please both the eye and the hand.  In short, the Lepid Gun is functional, reliable, and really, really pretty.

It’s a shame that it can only fire dead bugs.

In Nomine Revisited: Bruce, Mercurian Angel of Dumpster Diving.

OK, quick explanation on this one: in In Nomine canon, Eli (the Archangel of Creation) just decided to get up one day and leave Heaven to wander around the universe for a while. While there was the War going on. This perturbed Dominic (or Dominique) (the Archangel of Judgement) just a little bit, because there was the War going on. Since then, all Servitors of Creation work for another Archangel (In Service To, or IST). Thus… Bruce.
