One of the problems with a zombie horde is how to hide it. Zombies aren’t exactly known for their sterling good looks or for their initiative – but one thing they do retain are their instincts. Dancers, this includes precision movement, stage makeup, and masking injury – three important skills to hiding the fact that one is dead. Continue reading
The Zombies are in open revolt. One of their number managed to retain a faint sliver of their soul and overthrew their Infernal master (currently resting in limbo rather than facing Saminga’s wrath). Now the monsters are in charge of their own and rallying for… something.
Attempts to disburse the zombies will likely turn violent, and reasoning may prove difficult as most are still little more than mindless shambling bodies.

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.

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.
Florence was born some time in the late 60’s, though he won’t say which century. He grew up reading Anne Rice novels and speculating about what went on at that not-so-discrete as they imagined club across the way.
Eventually Florence found out, and some several years later made the acquaintance of a leather clad goddess who always knew just what he needed and how far he’d go to pay for it. When his favorite book was made into a film, Florence figured he finally had her stumped.
I recently stumbled across one of the few In Nomine books that had been missing from my collection, and it reminded me that I have not contributed to this blog in over a year.
In honor of returning from the dead, I thought it worthwhile to share some of my thoughts on Saminga, Demon Prince of Death.
