Re: Translating Precedence

Why would there be a need to translate? If nobody has ever heard of the outlander's actual title, then it would seem reasonable to just give it untranslated, so as not to offer offense. If nobody's...

Re: Fragmented States of America circa 1930

You should also keep in mind that state borders aren't necessarily all that meaningful when things really go off the rails. For example, I grew up in Memphis, which has a whole lot more in common...

Re: How visible are your Tethers?

It's been quite a while since I ran a game, but in my last campaign (set in Memphis, TN -- city I grew up in), there were only a couple of well-known Tethers, and the rest were clouded by...

Re: Wound Penalties?

I never saw any defined penalties anywhere. For flavor reasons, I'm sure they have some sort of pain receptors, but I've always played it as strictly informative, almost like the celestial is in a...

Re: Servants and Shedim

Your two basic postulates about Heaven are certainly plausible ways to run one's game, but they're not the only way to do so. It could be taken as a matter of emphasis -- did God intend for angels...

Re: Working man's tech

What would be *that* important? How urgent is the need, and why wouldn't you talk to the people showing up to collect the McGuffin resource to replace the vehicles? If the situation is so desperate...

Re: Working man's tech

That brings up the questions (to my mind, at least) of what's being transported, and would it be more efficient to use animal transport out there, or spend the precious trade credit on high-tech...

Re: Working man's tech

How far do they need to transport the "stuff" to the pickup point? Will they build boats? Roads? How will they load it onto the carts, and then offload it onto the smuggler ship? How worried are...

Re: Funding Flowers

To me, this is generally the foundation of most troubles with an IN game. There are people who play it with a very "Cold War" feel, where open conflict is strongly discouraged... and there are folks...

Re: Tramp Freighters and Monetary Instruments

I work for a large engineering firm, and we have a "corporate account" with several shipping services. They've run credit checks on us, we have some established history, and so we can ask them to...

Re: Tramp Freighters and Monetary Instruments

There's "easy". There's "fast". There's "anonymous". It's really difficult to combine all three.

If you show up with no locally-verifiable identity and no reputation, and you want to carry...

Re: Generic Tethers (USA)

"You're going to get a lap dance from *her* instead of *me*? That skanky, low-class bimbo who stole my eyeliner back in the dressing room??? Nuh-uh, I don't THINK so!!!".

Re: Help with night guard

When I was in college, I worked as a security guard to support myself. It wasn't especially difficult work, and I did get a variety of posts, most of which allowed me to get a lot of my homework...

Re: Flavor Thread

Your original comment was "...it's not what God intended for them originally." Saying that you can know God's plan through some very indirect evidence is itself evidence of the sin of Pride. What...

Re: Flavor Thread

Why should that be limited to *cosmetic* surgery? If God intended for you to be born with a cleft palate or a heart murmur, then who are you, puny mortal, to interfere with the Divine Plan?

Re: Thrown weapons in IN

I'd look at the "Throwing" skill (core book, pp. 77-78).

For a seafaring game, you'd probably want to know beforehand how you're going to handle harpoons -- I'm not sure if I'd just treat them...

Re: Ethics and setting oddities

Welcome to the wonderful world of "high-contrast" In Nomine. :)

Needless to say, you'll want to make sure all your players understand the settings you're thinking of when you start the game. ...

Re: Ethics and setting oddities

Re: NNN's new show...

Re: The "right" reward

I have another addition that I've found is especially helpful in a game like In Nomine that can be run so many different ways. I try to have a fairly detailed conversation about what sort of setting...
