I’ll be the first to tell you that nothing is more boring than a +1 longsword or that humor based artifacts are a bad idea in anything other than a humor driven campaign. And yet I’m a sucker for puns. Here are three new Artifacts that are all in the mind. Feel free to use them (or not) as suits your campaign. Continue reading
If you have not heard, a patriarch of the Russian Orthodox church has warned that smart phone owners should be wary of the internet of things because the two in conjunction could create an avenue to gain control of mankind and thus usher in the Antichrist.
We’ll Take it From Here
If you pick the ‘right’ definition of antichrist, there are some sound theological arguments to be made here, but that’s not the purpose of this blog. We’re going to take this opportunity to present an Apocalypse of the Week. Continue reading
Nefelibata tends to develop a reputation for distracted eccentricity wherever me goes: fighting dragons in the middle of downtown and reading books that no one else can see. As a result of an injury suffered during the first war, mer Corporeal and Ethereal forms are linked.
This has the advantage of allowing Nefelibata to remain awake in the corporeal realm while traveling through dreamscapes and the ethereal realm, but the disadvantage of requiring mim to perform the same action in each location (with sometimes disastrous results) Continue reading
Vapula is at it again. A number of dreamers, especially those working with computers and AI have been having dreams of demonic computers acting independently to create a dystopian technofuture.
Some of my other tethers projects are taking longer than expected, so I figured it was time for this romp beyond the firmament.
Since most mortal forms can’t survive full vacuum (and since there are no mortals to witness them), it’s safe to assume that any Angel or Demon manifesting at an interplanetary tether will be in celestial form. Continue reading
In light of the recent string of fascist rallies and counter demonstrations that have been taking place in the USA, this seems like a good time to take a break from my “no politics” rule. Sometimes not saying anything at all is itself an act of evil.
However, since this is still an In Nomine blog, I have decided to put together a list of possible anti-fascist actions someone could get involved and the Superior who I think would embrace that approach. If you just want to use this list in game, that’s fine – but I would rather you look through it and pick out a strategy or two that you are willing to use to combat fascism directly in the real world.
By day Mr. Kum is a exceptionally competent (but unassuming) middle manager. He support his subordinates, the trust of his superiors, an impeccable sense of professionalism, and will not stay in the office a minute more than is necessary. He cannot afford to. Happy hour is the only time that Jihun has “to himself,” and he likes to spend it catching up with his friends and divine colleagues. Continue reading
In the epochs since she created them, most of the Menuim have remained loyal to Blandine. Ra’uf is one of the few who walks another path. Day after day this angel makes his way to courthouse and tribunal looking for worthy souls who need encouragement as they wind their ways through the sometimes labyrinthine ways of the law.
Ra’uf typically appears like a small, kindly, non-descript man in his late 20s. Like all Menuim, Ra’uf does not speak. He just sits quietly in the gallery giving the wrongfully accused confidence that someone believes in them.
Raqib takes Blandine’s commandment of non-interference very seriously. Not only does he avoid meddling with mortals on the Corporeal plane, but he will not interfere with them (or those who visit them) in the Ethereal plane either. His job is to observe and report.
Since Raqib can render himself invisible while traveling the Ethereal realm, most characters will only ever spot him when they have rolled an Intervention inside a dreamscape and Raqib wants them to know that their activities have been observed.
