Psi is a newly fledged Demon of Lust, but due to his inability to get laid, he already considers himself a renegade. Whether or not he has been granted a Word I leave as an exercise for the GM, but if he has I would suggest Nybbas (not Andrealphus) as his sponsor. Continue reading
Depression is dangerous in an angel; especially among the Elohim, where feeling is so central to who they are and what they do. Rather than fall in the ghost of Meserach’s clutches, an Elohite of Creation has thrown themselves into the local club scene in an attempt to prove that they can still feel, still love, still want.
It is a vulnerable place for one of the Elohim to be, too much attachment; too much pain, and they still might crack and become one of the Punishers – and Andrealphus always tends to keep his fingers on the pulse of the night scene and is more than happy to lead a Creationer down the path to hell.
A party that successfully leads the Elohite back to their side should be allowed to call upon them as a resource in the future.
The first Demon of Adulteration was a Shedite of Beelzebub who had thought to join with Kobal after it’s first Superior died. Baal had other ideas, and conscripted the Demon of Adulteration to assist in The War effort. Few demons had as much direct experience with Purity’s mindset as one of Corruption’s wordbound servitors.

There are any number of questions one could ask about Andrealphus:
- Why is the Prince of Lust always a Dom?
- Do Incubi and Sucibi exist?
- How come slavery consistently has a closer connection to Lust than to Greed, Cruelty, or Factions?
The one I want to focus on today is this:
“How can you keep a Servitors of Andrealphus from being a rapist?”
Andrealphus, Baal, Cherub, David, Dominic, Duchies, Eli, Elohite, Furfur, Jordi, Khalid, Kyriotate, Lawrence, Magog, Malakite, Malphas, Mammon, Marc, Metatron, Michael, Ofanite, Ohr, Seraph, Seraphim Council, Shedite, Tsayadim, Uriel
I have been trying to figure out what I can write for heaven that could serve as the counterpart to the Duchies of Hell series. And the truth is that nothing will quite be the same. In Nomine has made it quite clear that Heaven does not observe the same feudal system as hell, nor are the Archangels expected to adhere to a uniform structure the way the Princes of Hell are.
But this really just means that I need to look at each Archangel individually. Lawrence openly embraces hierarchy. Dominic embraces it somewhat more covertly. Jordi seems to let his masters make and rearrange their own hierarchies spontaneously so long as it is never formalized.
Common wisdom holds that Ethereals who look like angels either vanish or become angels. The Erotes are the Symphony’s most notable exception. These Greek deities are tied to feelings of love and romance and resemble nothing so much as winged youths. Continue reading
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.
Adaptability is the name of the game for a Duke of Lust. Not only do they need/want to drop everything to serve their Prince personally, but there is no telling what the state of their fortunes or the world will be when their own private submission is through.
Any sphere of influence is flexible, and GMs should feel free to add. remove, or relocate any Duke as they see fit. Continue reading
This month’s batch of Numinous Corpus deal with sex and reproduction. Some of the sections are fun and silly, others deal with themes of rape, assault, pregnancy, and body horror. Consider this a content warning for the post – and I would advise having a content discussion with your players before introducing this material.
It should go without saying that what follows the cut is NSFW. Continue reading
