1997 Origins Award Nominee

In Nomine is a modern roleplaying game in which the players take the part of celestial beings – angels and demons – as they struggle for control of humanity and themselves. The celestials, powerful though they may be, are merely pawns in a much larger game being played by their Superiors, the Archangels and Demon Princes. Based on the best-selling French RPG by the wonderfully diabolical Croc!

The Word

In Nomine news! The Storium Kickstarter funded at an impressive $251,362 -- and the $150K stretch goal was In Nomine. Even now, I am told, minions of Steve Jackson Games are slaving away to translate the In Nomine universe into the card-and-storytelling system that Storium supports. Storium is a fascinating combination of play-by-email/post, cards, and roleplay, with a user interface that feels pretty slick so far.

Missed the Kickstarter? You can still join the Storium beta and receive many of the same rewards the KS backers had.

(And, of course, I must not miss this opportunity to note that there's a host of rich details in the books, still available in PDF form at Warehouse 23 . . .
