  • SPECTER as a God-Machine Cult

    I have been having this thought for awhile so i decided to ask you guys. How would you make SPECTER from the James Bond films as a God-Machine cult?

    What's SPECTER's raison d'etre? In the bond universe, I mean.

      Here's a link to their wiki page. http://jamesbond.wikia.com/wiki/SPECTRE. That should answer your question.

        In which continuity do you want to focus for this? The newest films?

          The classical movies and novels.

            Well, I'd have an easier time with the new incarnation, mainly because 9 Eyes looks like an state of the art Command & Control infrastructure.

                The older one is still possible, you just have it as a vast conspiracy dedicated to destabilizing the West. Higher ups could be stigmatics or demon-blooded, occasionally agents could be gifted with gadget-like objects.

                The new one is more about controlling economies.

                  True. But, would Blofield be a stigmatic or demon blooded. Also, what kind of Demon would James Bond be?

                    Bond would probably be a demon-blooded or stigmatic on the other side of things. From the God-Machine cult-conspiracy to keep people from trying to stabilize the West.

                    I imagine Blofeld best as a stigmatic. He's seen the structures of the God-Machine and has positioned himself in a place for them, a place to be used where he can aggrandize himself.

                      James Bond would probably just be a Demon-blooded agent, but "MI6" is probably an Agency masquerading as part of British Intelligence.

                        I think I will stick to the idea of them trying to destabilize the West. But, does that sound like a project the God Machine would do? Also, that would make them cold war relics.

                          God-Machine does a lot of weird things. As a being of stasis, it could just want them destabilizing the West to halt progress, keeping them slow or making sure any progress is hindered. Basically they could be the reason why governments are forced to spend so much money on counterintelligence, counterterrorism, and military in general.

                          Also, that would make them cold war relics.
                          Technically, but there's still some East vs West rivalries, it's just not about communism versus democracy right now and China is the one in charge, as opposed to the USSR. It allows for variation, with members of the 'Old Guard' having old hatreds and biases, while the 'New Guard' has different ideas.

                          Or you could make it defunct from the perspective of the God-Machine, with the angels tasked with supporting it having backed off and it solely being held together by the members within and their greed and hatred.

                            Actually, I like the Old Guard vs New Guard idea. Also, I can see the Machine using them to keep the West from advancing too quickly. Finally, what type of infrastructure would they use?

                              I am thinking that if i am going to introduce this group in a demon chronicle, i need to make the whole game feel like a James Bond movie.
