Default Campaign ideas: In Nomine at the Olympics?

So much of the War gets fought with the insubstantial things that hold so much meaning. War and Peace. Trade and Theft. Honor and Freedom.

These days, one of the biggest conjunctions of the ideal and the concrete is at the Olympic Games. And with the world watching for two weeks, our angels and demons in the shadows may have a world of opportunity.

So ... in your mind, what sort of plots and opportunities would the Superiors of IN be pursuing at the London Games?

For Nybbas, Mammon, and even Marc: http://www.abc.net.au/tv/gruensweat/

warlike Superiors will regard the games as a chance for their troops to train in enemy turf (frex the way Spetnaz units competed in western europe during the cold war).

Fluerity is all about doping, of course.

This is one of the few places that Laurence and Novalis can have some quality mother/son time.

Every time there's an Olympic Games, the Firemen hope that the inspiration invoked by the athletes, and created in the viewers by their events, will snap Gabriel out of her madness and get her giving consistent instructions to her servitors for at least a few days. (Moe Lane's idea, not mine.) Oh so many times, they're disappointed... Who would have thought it would be because of badminton this time around? Some of Kobal's minions have to be involved in that somewhere, right? (They should have known this would happen when the Flame's cauldron was pushed off to the side of the stadium.)

Let's break with tradition and not write out the number as a Roman numeral this time around, okay? We all know what the Lusties would get up to in the "XXX Olympics"... and that would no doubt include wearing out some athletes the night before their events, if the Andrealphans thought they could get away with it.

And don't forget about the (meager scraps of) Essence being funneled to the surviving Olympians in the far Marches because of the Games. Maybe one of them will actually manage to collect enough to be able to affect things somewhere along the way...

#5 on the list of 5 things they don't want you to know about the Olympics

Other entries in that article could provide inspiration for other machinations of other Princes.
