I am slowly working on rejiggering the way Discords work, but while I’m working on that it got me thinking about discords in general – so here are a few you might want to try out. Continue reading
To be honest, Bleach and In Nomine are incompatible. The power creep is entirely too steep within Soul Society and Hueco Mundo – especially given how static both locations supposedly are.
However, crossovers are fun.
So here’s my take on the Soul Society based on the earlier seasons (where a handful of exceptional children fresh from the mortal world are able to challenge the status quo). Continue reading
As much as I love In Nomine, Healing is one of the places where the system falls flat on it face. Not only is the Medicine Skill an idiosyncratic mess, but it is also rendered almost entirely redundant by the Song of Healing which can heal more faster with a minimum of symphonic disruption.
That said, laying on hands is an iconic part of both role playing games and christian mythology. Removing the Song of Healing is out of the question. There is also some good ideas in the existing rules that I want to make sure I preserve. Continue reading
Okay, so the Hazbin Hotel pilot is finally out – and more or less exactly the mass of infernal humor, Heavy Metal, and Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends that I was hoping it would be.
Honestly, if you haven’t watched it yet, do so and come back. This show is right up there with Good Omens as one of those things you really should watch if you want to play In Nomine.
I’ve been toying around with ways to make Castle Falkenstein suitable for a more contemporary game – and one of the most obvious that occurs to me is the introduction of additional Sorcerous Orders.
So without further ado:
The Order of the Age of Sin
Today we’re leaving the usual fields we travel to discuss Castle Falkenstein, a different neglected system.
Much like the original Deadlands, Castle Falkenstein uses a card drawing mechanic to resolve the outcome of actions. Among the many variations introduced was a spellcasting approach that replaced the deafault poker deck with a tarot deck. Continue reading
One of my friends recently asked the In Nomine Facebook Fans groups for ideas to help them craft their game into an antiestablishment cosmic noir.
For this to be worth pursuing, the establishment has to be worth overthrowing, here are some of my thoughts on how to reduce or invert the contrast in a manner that keeps with the noir aesthetic. Continue reading
Hi everyone. Thank you for all your support over the last few years.
This post is serving as a heads up: I am switching to an “at will” posting schedule for the foreseeable future. This will be a reduction from the previous 1-2 posts/week.
I have some new projects that are eating up much of the time that was previously dedicated to this blog – and I am living with roommates (which was not the case a year ago), so a certain amount of undedicated time has been going to communal activities, chores, and projects rather than musings on the political lives of angels and demons.
Unlike my prior writing breaks, I do not have a backlog of pre-written posts to fill the intervening months.
Sometimes there will be stuff, most of the time there will not.
If you’re writing In Nomine content, please feel free to plug your own blogs/forums/&c. in the comments.
Like many a Stone, Nocent Docent believes in tough love. Admittedly, David no longer speaks to her, but her loss has only made her harder and stronger – and eventually inspired her to seek out the strongest woman she knows: Lilith.
The two struck an accord that placed the (fallen) angel within the mortal’s service. Continue reading
