For the unaware: Liber Castellorum is the guide to how Tethers work in the In Nomine universe, including good, bad and neutral features; the powers and limitations of Seneschals; likely defensive measures; how different Choirs and Bands oversee them; the life-cycle of a Tether; and, finally, a long list of sample Tethers for each of the core Superiors.

You may never look at the Lincoln Memorial steps quite the same way again ...

Which will be/could have been really useful. Have to think about it though--planning an international move in a month and need to save cash and ditch stuff.

Yes yes, save cash, but the beauty of digital books is less stuff to move! ;)

It also has what little canon information there is on Makatiel, Habbalite Prince of Disease... and an adventure making use of that information.

This is absolutely one of the my favorite books, because (along with Liber Servitorum) it provides concrete example of how Superiors wield their Words in the real world. I can often be difficult for someone new to IN to connect the more metaphorical Words to realworld applications, and Liber Castorellum has a great collection of examples of how to do this.

Awesome.

As I said for the Designer's Notes for this one, long and long ago... My first reaction was "a book about Tethers? What? Who'd want that?" However, I followed orders like a good little Servitor, and I think the result is, indeed, a pretty darn useful book. Check the index -- there are some useful easter eggs, since I looked up Tether locations that might not actually be mentioned in the maintext, and filed them under country or state as appropriate, if I recall correctly.
