Default Interesting Version of Novalis

I found this while looking for something else entirely. I don't know if it was from somebody here or if it was posted before, so put the pitchforks and flaming swords away if it was.

Curious what you all think about it? Looks interesting to me.

Moe Lane used to be a regular here. He seems to have moved on to other interests. He was known as an extremely creative and for long stretches prolific writer who came up with some very fun reinterpretations as well as interesting insights into strict canon.

In case he still browses occasionally and a reference to his work catches his eye, I'd like to add that I always considered him a friend.

I looked at his user page - last here on the 16th. I read chunks of Liber Licentiae Moeticae fairly often; it's good fun, and often gives me weird ideas.

Cool. I thought it was an interesting take on Novalis. I doubt it would fit in our far-from-serious campaign (which last involved the kidnapping of Dominic and forcing him to watch Justin Beiber videos 24/7), but in case it ever turns serious I will most likely farm it

Doesn't that violate the Geneva Convention? :)

Yes, I think it does. :p

But Moe did really good work and it's too bad he seems to have moved on.

LOL, I don't think Hell signed the Geneva Convention unless it was part of some bit of absurdity to screw up warfare for guys who like to go all-out, like Michael. "Of course you can hate each other. Just make sure you hate each other by the rules! Yes, I know he was going to kill you, but that's no excuse for shooting him with that kind of bullet..." (Or perhaps some insidious way to make warfare more "tolerable" so we'd be more prone to launch ourselves into it? "They signed the Geneva Convention. They'll be civilized about war. Let's go!")

Judging by Moe's latest posts, maybe if we talked about an intersection of Ogre and In Nomine, we'd succeed in invoking the Archangel of Dueterocanonical Material?

Jean might be involved with developing some of the GEVs, but the OGREs themselves are obviously a project co-lead by Vapula and Baal...
