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
Glaive is an old soldier in Heaven’s Army. Although she serves Lawrence now, she came up through Michael’s ranks, not Uriel’s. Her tactics are a bit antiquated, but still sound. Much like her original Superior, Glaive favors individual acts of heroism over regimented formations.
She knows her duty and she will execute it, but she has a soft spot for loose canons (read PCs) especially if they can get 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.
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. Continue reading
I had not originally intended to revisit the world of Paranoia so soon, but given the warm reception Roy G. Biv received, an encore seems in order.
What is Alpha Complex?
Alpha Complex is the setting of the Paranoia RPG. It is a sprawling technological dystopia run by
tyrannical benevelent AI system that wants nothing more than for its drones citizens to live drugged happy obedient productive lives. Continue reading
There is a strange story that circulates among those who have seen either the Book of Names or the Book of Death. They claim that Lucifer never survived the War in Heaven; instead he was struck down by Metatron who was so stricken with grief that he perjured himself before all creation to claim that it was he who died. Unfortunately, his saying it “made it so” and “made it good,” and from that point forward Metatron “became” Lucifer, Prince of Lies. Continue reading
Jean is the Archangel of Lightning, while he encourages responsible scientific advancement, he is ardently opposed to what he views as a reckless pursuit of newer, more controlling and more dangerous technologies (which are typically favored by the Demon Prince Vapula).
- I will never take shelter from the storm.
- I will not strike the same place twice.
- I will spend at least 4 hours each day engaged in research.
- I will remove all uncleared celestial technology from the mortal realm.
- I will never allow my tools to fall into mortal hands.
- I will encourage researchers to proceed ethically and responsibly.
- I will sabotage all unholy research.
- I will flawlessly execute any order given by Jean.
- I will not be controlled by mankind.
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
