Re: Disturbance Reduction

1) I can absolutely see this as a plot hook for a few different scenarios. The most obvious that comes to mind is a servitor of Technology who's running a live field experiment. There doesn't even...

Re: Balseraph Resonance/Dissonance Clarification

If I remember correctly, the Infernal Players Guide discusses this a bit. Long story short: They have BOTH the ability to create an entire worldview (and get a big bonus to check digit for it), and...

Re: Character Creation Booklet

I found the Angelic and Demonic Players Guides useful for that end summary section in each alone, but they're also full of nice setting material.

Re: In Nomine Elseworlds

Strongly implied!



Oh, I totally agree. In fact, it was indistinguishable from the world we live in now. :)

Re: In Nomine Elseworlds

My most recent In Nomine campaign led the players through The Revelations Cycle, and ended with the Archangel of Faith and the Grigori Archangel of Death (and many Grigori servitors thereof) storming...

Re: In Nomine Elseworlds

My most well-received In Nomine campaign was set in a world in which angels disappeared from Earth completely hundreds of years ago, immediately after the Purity Crusade. The PCs didn't know why (and...

Re: Angels capable of using demonic resonance?

I'm pretty sure it's in one of the books as an optional rule – I'm guessing probably the Angelic Player's Guide or the Game Master Guide. I remember reading the same thing.

Re: WI:A Different World

I could definitely see some raw feelings by whoever lost the most Grigori, though—perhaps especially Eli or...

Re: WI:A Different World

Hell has always been about quantity over quality. Lucifer might double down on that, so we suddenly see a ton of Word-bound elevated to Princedoms, often in conflicting areas, the general atmosphere...

Re: Lucifer on Fox

I figured I'd check it out expecting to hate it, especially since it departs so much from the style/tone of the premise as introduced in the comics. Now I've seen every episode and I'm kind of antsy...

Re: wordbound NPCS and overdoing it

I don't see country-specific words going too much narrower than the NPC statted up in Blandine's writeup, The Angel of the American Dream. I could see that angel feeling kind of beleaguered but very...

Re: How do you force a celestial to celestial combat? And what do you do with captive

I think the Song of Banishing is listed as "restricted," and with good reason, as it's SUPER powerful to be able to detect any character's choir or band with one fell swoop, not to mention forcing...

Re: Anyone around?

I poke my head into this forum every few weeks. Hello!

I took a break from running In Nomine for a long while to play a bunch of other games and learn about other systems, hoping I'd come up with...

Re: How to handle mundane authoritys?

I think the short answer is: What kind of game do you want this to be? I used to run it as "realistically" as possible, with never giving the PCs a break, constantly running into conflict with the...

Re: What is the main psychological difference

I had one game where most of the players spent several minutes trying to figure out a way to monitor a mortal they'd learned may be in danger. The PCs snuck into her workplace, pretending to work in...

Re: Host/Echo

Yeah, it's a totally different system. There is no adding, no check digit, just qualitative terms describing "I'm good at this thing" or "I can do this special thing." I'm probably explaining it...

Host/Echo

Sometimes I want to play In Nomine without getting too in-depth with the rules (especially for new players), but I do still want a 3d6 system that can see interventions. To that end, I'm thinking I...

Re: In Nomine without Abrahamicism as a basis?

Yeah, I forget exactly where the note is that alexondria mentions, but I suspect it's described in the Ethereal Player's Guide (which is practically a game all its own). Maybe the angels and the...

Re: Marches Vacation Domain

"Timor" is the name of a (real-world) tropical island. A domain in the Marches was formed by a general, hazy understanding of "tropical islands" being nice places for vacations, but domains like...

Re: thoughts on check digit dampener

It's not clear to me what the aim is of the newly proposed check digit ranges. If it'd just to try to keep check digits lower on average and correlating more obviously with character ability, I feel...

Re: Seraphim resonance and auto-activate?

You know, I've always run it by rules-as-written, but I've always liked the fiction better. I've been playing so much Fate lately that it's easy for me now to think of it in terms of that system,...

Re: How visible are your Tethers?

Re: Grigori of Knowledge

Off the top of my head, I might suggest something like: Grigori of Knowledge were humanity's greatest teachers. Anyone attempting to remember anything spoken to them by an angel with this attunement...
