Should a party ever go searching for the apostles or should a grail quest make a turn for the infernal, the players will likely be directed towards Sandakel. He claims to have been Yves defender assigned to Jesus of Nazareth. His fellow prisoners below have taken to calling the Djinn “Iscariot,” and while he does not deny it, never once has he called himself by that name. Continue reading
They are there among you, in the forgotten corners of your shining city: the punks, the artists, the destitute, and the dispossessed.
If they have seen god at all “he” has not been kind to them. And now, they are banding together (at least in one city), fighting for mutual support but not under David’s banner. A demon has reached them first.
They are not evil, they are not cruel, but they’d rather be damned than follow your rules.
While you are welcome to introduce your own patron – I would pick a renegade Djinn of Fire who is under Lilith’s protection.
With the threat of global war once again on the rise, Ba’al has granted his Djinn leave to travel to the Corporeal realm at will to gather allies and draw semiotic battle lines.
While a part might encounter one or two of these “dogs” stirring up hate and endorsing autocratic rule, hundreds more will be acting beyond their reach.
Should angels engage them in open conflict, the resulting fight would likely spill over into mortals, kicking off the very war the heavenly servants are trying to prevent; other, more challenging solutions are called for.
Ohad is an enforcer and Project Manager for Vapula’s Department of Ontological Sciences. Rather than researching or classifying, Ohad and his task force work on tracking down outliers and forcing them to either comply or be destroyed.
This mission has often lead Ohad and his team to collaborate with Asmodeus in tracking down Outcasts and Renegades who claim to hold loyalty to neither heaven nor hell. Continue reading
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?”
Masirinaesau, Champion of Edom and Guardian of the line of Esau, fell from grace not long after he “betrayed” his ward to Jacob. Discontent with following the dictates of the Seraphim Council, Masirinaesau declared that he would find a way to place himself above that august council and fell of his own accord. He has spent the centuries since cultivating his calm and learning to supplement his own considerable might with Samael’s poisonous ways. Continue reading
[CW: References to mass murders]
The Yellow Boy doesn’t make a habit of sharing “his” name. “He” is a jaundiced demon in both appearance and outlook. As a nightmare of the gun dead, The Yellow Boy was drawn to the Winchester household and particularly the dreams of one Sarah Lockwood Winchester. “His” name was drawn from the Winchester arsenal, and in the years after Mr. Winchester’s death, “he” and the widow formed an almost symbiotic relationship.
Together, they birthed a most monstrous child: the Winchester Mystery House. Sarah managed the corporeal construction, while The Yellow Boy took charge of the Ethereal. Sarah’s fear was eventually enough to cause the sprawling manor’s dreams to become a Domain in its own right; one that sprawls and twists in such impossible geometries, even H.P. Lovecraft would be envious. Continue reading
Apocalypse, Baal, Beelzebub, Calabite, Distinctions, Djinn, Fairy, Four Horsemen, Genubath, Haagenti, Habbalite, In Nomine, Khalid, Lawrence, Legion, Makatiel, Mammon, Mixed Party, Numinous Corpus, Nybbas, Olympians, Renegade, Saminga, Songs, Valefor
The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse may not have shown up as part of In Nomine’s Revelations cycle, but that does not mean that they need to be absent from the setting. After all, In Nomine is the sort of the game that encourages an Apocalypse of the Week.
There are a few different ways of handling the Horsemen.
One is that the Horsemen are Demon Princes:
- The White Horseman: Makatiel originally, but now Nybbas
- The Red Horseman: Baal
- The Black Horseman: Haagenti (with Mammon in reserve)
- The Pale Horseman: Saminga
While this is a fairly simple and easy to implement approach, it adds nothing to the setting. Another possibility is that the Horsemen are all Wordbound Servitors of particular note – but this is also somewhat limiting, as it locks a specific demon into each role.
