[Mini] Demon: The Phallen: Game Over - Ravener + Earthbound Win
Him the Almighty Power
Hurled headlong flaming from th' ethereal sky
With hideous ruin and combustion down
To bottomless perdition, there to dwell
In adamantine chains and penal fire,
Who durst defy th' Omnipotent to arms.
-John Milton, Paradise Lost
Demon: The Phallen
This is a mini-phalla for 25 players. Factions and the possibility of conversions are at play. If you don't like either, you are welcome not to play. This is also a mechanics test for The Life and Times of Detective John Munch. You have been warned.
So what's this demon thing?
Simply put, it's another of the supernatural entities from what's colloquially called the Old World of Darkness. You may be more familiar with the most famous, Vampire: The Masquerade, from whence cj iwakura's Gehenna and Ahava and Krata's Vampire Dominance sprung.
Demon was released at the very tail end of the Old World of Darkness, as the world literally chained to a doomsday clock churned towards apocalypse and oblivion. It's a loose retelling of John Milton's Paradise Lost.
That is to say, demons are fallen angels who believe they need to guard and guide mankind lest the world be lost to pain and damnation. Some might call them devil or demon (and in the descriptions of the Earthbound, demons turned to the service of mislead tyrants like Asmodeus who opppose Lucifer, they might be true.) Demon, devil, once-angel, no matter the term, all are given power by faith, the belief in their divinity given by other demons and humankind.
People familiar with the setting, a warning: I have greatly simplified the houses for clarity of play. Slayers and Scourges do not even exist.
