  • "You have to ask yourself, "Which is a more pleasing mental image: Laurence using this ability to reward only his most dutiful and potent of Servitors, or Laurence using this ability to arm a hundred scared humans trapped in a toy store so that they may go out and give a bunch of Calabim the surprise of their miserable lives?"" - Plastic He-Man Hollow Sword Of Doom by Moe Lane

  • "Humans aren't terribly skilled at dealing with supernatural crimes, but enough have happened over the years for them to take some precautions. Anytime a crime involves something supernatural, whether it be the criminal sacrifices cats before robbing a store, or witnesses insisting that the criminal could fly, or even the police doctor insisting that the accused is, in fact, dead (and that his ability to to walk and talk is beside the point) then once arrested the accused is sent to Bechley." - Bechley Prison by James Walker

This was both the start of her troubles and the key to the eventual gaining of her Princedom." - Abiressia, Lilim Princess of the Wild by Michael Walton

  • "So your characters have done everything...

  • "Whether wrapped in mundane flesh or working in Heaven, Leilani's Servitors all have their eyes firmly fixed on the stars that are man's future. Their beliefs are a curious mishmash of science fiction, new age astrology, and sheer optimism, but this is more because of their Archangel's strange and varied nature than anything else." - Leilani, Seraph Archangel of the Heavens by Manny Nepomuceno


  • "The world is afflicted and I am its Cancer." - Chora, Habbalite Prince of Affliction by Terry Jackson

  • "Triad 314 is, on the books, the worst triad to ever see duty on the corporeal plane. Their files are filled with official reprimands, convictions for destruction of property, misappropriation of funds, consorting with the fallen, overindulgence in corporeal pleasures, and direct insubordination." - Triad 314 by Michael Cleveland

  • "In another life, Radcliffe would have been a Malakite, a dark-winged champion of honor. However, born as a child of Fear instead of Virtue, Radcliffe was a personal creation of Beleth and never got a chance to swear her Oaths or cleanse the world of its failings.

As we were made in the image of God, so must we remake the world in our own." - Superior Victory: Vapula (Steampunk) by Jonathan Walton


  • "So much fuss over such a simple biological function that barely qualifies as a tertiary manipulation technique for the average Hetaera. Admittedly, said function is considered to have a somewhat greater significance on the corporeal plane, but that is no excuse for imprecise judgement." - Hetaeras by Moe Lane


  • "The Seraph slowly turned her head to face the Ofanite that was in the driver's seat. "Well, I don't think we should be in any trouble on this one, Laris.

Technically we probably didn't have to do it, but I don't see there having been a problem with our actions."" - Triad 314: Vendettas by Michael Cleveland

You could love without pain, back then." - Janet, Cherub Vassal of Stone, Angel of Broken Hearts by Moe Lane


  • "Considering the number of mutually contradictory stories surrounding Reitvip, others are surprised that the demon is not a Balseraph.

Even if he still is a brute who likes to kill, plays the Goth scene and buddies with the Undead." - Byrus, Impudite Baron of the Undead Kingdom, Demon of Vampires by Rolland Therrien

  • "Even in Sheol, there must be a place that is hotter than anywhere else. Most assume that this place would be Belial's throne room: a natural assumption, but quite wrong. After all, the Prince of Infernal Fire must entertain others from time to time, and his peers complain so when their envoys spontaneously combust before they can quite finish delivering the messages entrusted to them. No, the throne room of Belial is merely incandescently hot." - Hamon, Calabite Baroness of the Demonic Brazier by Moe Lane

  • "Ancient and inscrutable, Belial stands as a monument to the faith of Heaven in its ultimate victory against Hell. In the days of the Fall, when the Lightbringer brought many of his fellow angels to temptation, Belial alone stood untested against the seduction of the Darkness and thus faced his former comrades and master.

Keith


  • "Humans die. Not a problem in and of itself: on the contrary, many Celestials consider it a good thing.

  • "It is rumored that she once used this Song to give Andrealphus a piece of her mind after he went a bit too far with one of her angels.

Or possibly Heaven will notice." - Isn't It Amazing What People Will Do For A Word? by James Walker


  • "There are actually quite a few of these: the Demon Prince of Heresy usually carries around with him a satchel or overnight bag. Unfortunately, what with the standard Calabite entropy field present at all times (at Superior level, no less), it's a rare bag that lasts more than a week. When that happens, Maurice will swear a bit, do some quick and dirty repairs... and hand the bag over to the next celestial he sees with an irritated "Here"." - Superior Artifact: Maurice's Bag by Moe Lane
