Other Angels of Gabriel may be messenger’s of God’s righteous anger at the harm that they inflict, but Lucerna is really just interested in bringing a bit of joy and color into everyone’s lives. Continue reading
I have previously suggested that since Malakim are Virtues, anything viewed as virtuous would be a good candidate for a Malakite Word. This is not just limited to western systems of morality.
The Noble Eightfold Path is such a system. It is observed by several Buddhist sects as a guide towards proper living and mindfulness. Because I am not a Buddhist, my treatment of these principles is inherently imprecise and runs the danger of being overly simplistic and appropriative. Unfortunately, I am unaware of any Buddhists who have written on the Malakim of In Nomine, nor do I currently have the reach to enlist one.
As such, I am making my best approximation – but I would encourage anyone thinking of including these Virtues into one of their games to conduct additional research of their own, and if any of you know of a Buddhist gamer with a penchant for Abrahamic RPGs, I would love the chance to defer to their greater experience.

The world is all alone in a vast void, give it what light and warmth you can.
Although he is billions of years old, Galgaliel remains a child. He has never really had the sorts of interactions which might cause him to mature – his corona is too dangerous for prolonged trips to earth, and most angels have little cause to visit him. Continue reading
2017 was the Liber Neglecta’s 5th year online, and the second year of (mostly) continuous posting. As the year draws to a close, I thought now would be a good time to look at who has topped the chart as most popular Angel or Demon.
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
Mercurian of Fire
Zachariel is a master of ceremonies who specializes in wakes, memorials, and vigils. The Mercurian angel’s duty is twofold:
- Preserve the memory of the dead and fallen
- Help those who grieve to process their anger and sorrow in ways that are not self-destructive.
Asirah has a duty to find Discordant angels and deport them back to Heaven. Since a surprising number of angels attempt to circumvent Judgement, Asirah has determined that the best way she can serve her Archangel is to go undercover. Whenever possible, the Kyriotate will pose as a servitor of Fire. Not only does this put her in a better position to learn about angels in danger of falling, but she can pursue earthly justice without breaking cover.
Asirah is very much aware that things may not go well for her if the Flames ever realize what she is really doing. 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.
