    SO I'm running a Christfag campaign, and one of my players wants to play this cheesy Mage-Prophet from The Book Of Mormon. Personally I prefer to run my campaigns either Canon only or with Paradise Lost, but I know this can get boring after awhile.
    Should I let my player use BoM? Also: Yaweh RPG General.

    Thanks for wasting those minutes of my life OP.

    For those not in the know, BoM is some fan-made supplement. It's not supported by Popes of the Vatican. Personally I think they made a huge mistake with the Gutenberg License, letting all those third-parties make up whatever they wanted.

    That's a supported race as long as the campaign is set pre-Deluge. The angels fell in love with mortal women, bred with them and spawned the Nephillim. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nephilim)

    Now if you are raging about the rogue class you have a point. Rogue is not a favored class for giants.

    Reminds me of my Moses Python campaign:

    The desert bums are chasing a new high. More and more eremites are being found dead in the foothills asphyxiated next to the ashes of a bush which in combustion apparently releases psychotropic fumes that can induce vivid hallucinations.

    One of the intoxicated however shows little signs of failing health. Instead he is prone to erupting into impromptu ravings which have attracted quite a following. Young men from the smaller villages and a few scholars unwelcome at temple congregate at night to watch the man set fire to a bush and then tell of his visions. It is said to be quite a show...

Yes, I am using modified Dispensationalist rules; I was hoping to get some unique takes on angelic forms, besides the beryl-colored wheel intersecting a wheel that everyone rolls up.

    If one of the players is brave enough to pull some blasphemous shit, bring on those calamities again. Your players seem like good followers, though... just keep it in mind if they decide to be dicks.

    If the power of YHWH Himself couldn't prevail against a force of them, I doubt any angelic force will have an easy time of it.

    Alright, /tg/, lets settle this once and for all.
    Creator or Demiurge?

    you'll note that the mentions of iron chariots are all about the faithful or chosen fighting them. There's a reason that angels get so little play in the fluff, they are serious rape to just about everything except other angels.

    Ugh, I don't like the vibe of Antichrists. They look like they're the type that'd die or get fucking condemned eventually during the course of a campaign.

    Or do they have some neato tricks that I'm not seeing here?
    >> Anonymous 03/27/11(Sun)08:39 No.14381774

    Haven't looked over the stats of demons/devils, but I'm imagining that angels would rape them too in single combat.

    set it in 2011,

    nobody has a clue whats going on,

    no special powers except in confrontaions where the the whole party is transported into another dimension.

    ie party enter bar, halfway through ordering bears.. bears really?
    the barkeep turns into werewolf.. suddenly big underground dungeon.

    Your... your fucking Kidding right?
    Have you seen the powers a well built Antichrist can bring to the field. If you pull it off perfectly they can be pulling "Gates of Hell" at level 5.

    You read that right.

    Fucking level 5

    Fuck you. I'd roll Man of Lawlessness with Akeldama and Bellum Omnium Contra Omnes and watch you squirm as I betray your followers and convince them that the only way to survive is to fight against everyone else.

    Hey, has anyone tried using the Inferno module? My group is about to finish a Buddhist campaign and I don't really have another one ready. Should I try Inferno or should I go with Lucifer's Fall?
    >> Anonymous 03/27/11(Sun)08:46 No.14381828
    That's right normally they do condemn everyone that balances them out. That is why you don't use Satan or Hell when playing with Everything is forgiven rule. It would make Antichrists godless killing machines with no worry in the world.

    Enjoy not being able to use your powers for shit if someone takes Katechon. If you minmax so you can pull of Gates of Hell that low level there is no way you'd have physical stats or skills necessary to get rid survive.

    So I'm thinking of running a gnostic campaign but telling my players it's Abrahamic. I mean I was going to do Abrahamic originally, but when we got together for roll ups one of my characters rolled up a human priest, which is fine.

    The others kind of troll faced and started throwing out angelic power builds though despite my saying "no nephilim or divine templates to start."

    So since my group seems to be mostly That Guys, I guess what I'm asking is...is making them deceived agents of the Demiurge a decent plan?

    Also planning on implementing the "In His Image" optional rule for humans, to help out the one guy who listened.

    Antichrist always has "Separated from God" so the demonic hosts don't attack them unless there are no faithful around. Powergamers just open the gates and run fuck away.

    Why not do both with Lucifer's Fall as a precursor to Inferno? Depending on how it goes, switch out some of the positions of power for their old characters and run with it.

    Because the source material doesn't fit together. How the hell does the pretty boy from Paradise Lost become the huge monster that chews Brutus, Cassius and Judas?

    Man, you're not paying attention to the fluff on the Supernal and Infernal realms are you? It's all based on perception and half truths, they can both be mutually true from certain viewpoints. Limited human (as in your players) understanding allow both to be true, especially if you run Inferno with humans or angels more prone to see those prancing nancy-boys from Paradise Lost as monstrous traitors.

    If they rolled up angelic templates when you said no nephilim then they're just going go all LOLRANDOM throughout the campaign; making them agents of the Demiurge in any form just gives them another excuse. What you should do is go pure Abrahamic, give the angelic douches the False Prophet trait and the human priest Cast Down His Rod. Have the priest fuck them up whenever they try any shennanigans.

    Read the fucking book before you open your mouth. Katechon is a person or thing that has to be destroyed before Antichrists can manifest their power. PC and NPC's can take it as a feat, or you can have an item with that property.

    This thread reminds me oh so much why there should be a Shin Megami Tensei PnP.

    Nocturne even more so, provided delicious campaign fuel with alternative, even pro-lucifer side of the conflict.

    Then again, what you'd expect from a universe where Yehovah was already killed once?

    I had a friend do it, the character was actually a genuinely good guy trying to save the world. Just a bit misguided, and by the time he realized where all of his powers were coming for and who he was actually working for, it was too late.

    Granted he was treating the Southern Salvation module like Smash In The Gates- with the generally "heroic" role of the evangelists being treated like monsters for their close minded xenophobia... but it worked.

    RP, trying to keep the various pcs balanced, most of the dm's I've played with tread manifested antichrist as high or epic level shit.

    I once played an apocalypse campaign where the antichrist didn't know what he was because of a Katechon piece of jewelry he always wore. Me and the other pcs were charged with preventing satanists from destroying it and unleashing armageddon. We failed bad and my char was the only survivor of the TPK the satanists and antichrist unleashed. Next campaign my surviving char reforged the Katechon jewelry into the hilt of a sword and dueled the antichrist in the temple of Jerusalem.

    BoM sucks. It's a poorly-edited third-party splatbook that takes great steaming dumps all over the lore and was obviously never playtested. Most players who want to use it just want in on the rampant power creep.

    If your player is serious about lacking options, try and convince him to roll up a Baptist (the original ones, not the overpowered Southern Baptists that would be out of place in a Christfag campaign anyway). They aren't very popular because on paper they seem weak, but even a Messiah will bow to a properly run Baptist. (Hint: the first mistake most Baptist players make is assuming they work like every other class in nYRPG and take Reborn in Spirit at level 1. Baptists are support, they need Consecrate the Body and Sign of the Dove more.)
