Lia ag Caint, Banshee of House McKinley

Tags

, , , , , ,

While Lia is not so powerful a banshee as Aibell, acting as harbinger to a murdered president has given her a connection to the new world and a measure of durability that equaled only by the banshee serving the royal lines of the Irish kings.

Like many of her kin, she wears green clothes while allowing her red and gold hair to sit wild about her head like an untamed fire. When not forecasting the doom of Irish-Americans, the spirit acts as a street medic and a practitioner of “alternative medicine” (primarily herbalism and leeching).

She would be a proper doctor, but machines make her uncomfortable. Besides, the McKinleys started as leech handlers, and she is more than happy to keep the tradition alive. Continue reading

Zombies vs. Angels

zombie-outbreak-responseZombie outbreaks in a game of In Nomine are different from most other settings because a horde of zombies poses no direct threat to an angel. Not only is the angel massively more powerful (9 Force vs. 4 Force), but zombieism is non-communicable.

This doesn’t mean that the zombie outbreak is an unusable scenario, but you will need to adjust the setting and add some additional objectives or threats.

Just Another Rat: Zucker Bandicoot

JordiThe Zuck serves Jordi through the Angel of Rats. Like many a rat, he’s a scrounger, an information broker, and more tolerant of man than most other Angels of Animals.

Still, his outlook is not particularly human. Concepts like property and refuse do not make much sense to the angel. So long as a thing exists, he figures it’s both usable and up for grabs. Continue reading

Roles from The Darkest Dungeon

darkestfleshTwo years ago I used The Darkest Dungeon as an example of an inescapable eldritch horror setting. If you’re actually thinking of running a campaign in this world, your angels and demons will need a way to fit into the estate. Thankfully, Red Hook has already provided us with a number of potential Roles.

Here are the skills, resources, and discords I would require for someone to take on a Role from The Darkest Dungeon:

Elizabeth Bathory’s real Coat of Arms

Elizabeth Bathory is a serial killer best known for having bathed regularly in the blood of virgins in order to preserve her youth. Her lands were in Transylvania and Hungary, and her exploits are said to have contributed to the Dracula myth.

Though Vampires do not gain any bonus Forces, humans who were already exceptional may bring the Forces they have already accumulated through with them into undeath. This is how I am handling the Blood Countess.

Flash Galaxy, who “ain’t dangerous enough”

Sigil of Furfur - GoetiaTruth be told, Flash doesn’t give a fuck about The War and her Prince isn’t organized enough to do shit about it. She’s on Earth to rock out and stick it to the man. Barista, bassist, singer, and nightmare to anyone who fucks with her of her friends (whether they be mortal or immortal).

Oh yeah, one more thing. She’s pissed that she’s never going to get to see Freddie Mercury play. He ended up in the other place. Continue reading

Little Gods

etherThe Ethereal Player’s Guide suggests that PC Etherials should be built on 6 Forces, I think that they should match the Force count of other PCs.

6 or 7 Forces is a good level for an all-Ethereal game, or to keep up with a party of Soldiers and Sorcerers. It is clearly inadequate to keep pace with a party of full fledged angels or demons. However, according to In Nomine, once an Ethereal reaches 9 Forces it has the potential to be a god. Continue reading
