  • This week in The Saviour Machine: an anticlimax!

    When Miss Saint realized the campus security were coming, she left the fight to intercept them before they saw Mr. Jets and Ms. Stone with Demonic Form abilities out. Vitrium, who had been trapped between its Bane (high-pitched noises) and the flashlight with Wave Function Collapse, used this opportunity to discorporate. Mr. Jets and Ms. Stone managed to use Behind The Curtain to yeet themselves through the damaged prayer rug and back out of the oven in Mr. Jets' restaurant, resulting in a very bad time for the night manager, Tony....

  • For Session #3, I mocked up a webpage for the Champaign News-Gazette with headlines about the incident on campus ("ball lightening") and also a map with the information Lucy and Shelly had given the ring about previous herald-angel appearances. They immediately noticed that the events were arranged in a rough circle around an area on the north edge of the U of I campus - the Beckman Institute for Cognitive Science. They followed another headline from the webpage to a press release about a fancy new machine-learning project about to go live at the Beckman called ORISION. This seemed likely...

  • Session Two:

    Miss Stone tried to talk to some of the UFO hunters hanging around Green Street (and one lone person marching up and down with a sign reading THE END IS NEAR) but didn't get far, especially after she dramatically failed at Don't I Know You? Miss Saint went to speak with a contact of hers -- Tile, an Exiled Lare in the form of the bathroom of the Blind Pig Brewery in downtown Champaign. They antagonized each other for a bit, but Tile ultimately didn't know any thing more substantive about the UFOs than the ring had already uncovered - "I'm a bathroom, I don't get...

    Campaign Diary: The Saviour Machine

    This is a game I've been meaning to run for ages, and finally got off the ground this weekend! The setting is Champaign-Urbana, Illinois, and the PCs are:

    Mr. Jets, Psychopomp-Integrator: cover is running a pizza franchise full of Infrastructure ovens.
    Ms. Stone, Messenger-Tempter: currently sleeping rough after fleeing her assignment when she Fell.
    Miss Saint, Destroyer-Inquisitor: cover is in the city permits office, promotes conspiracy theories for fun (including some on a forum called Network Zero or something like that...)

    I sent them all a "briefing"...

    Condition Cards in Roll20?

    I've been playing around with the cards function in Roll20 (setting up an X card for my upcoming Demon game) and I was curious if anyone had used the cards function for condition cards? Either creating your own or editing the PDF version? I like having physical Condition cards, but I'm not sure the time investment is worth it.

    Yeah, I couldn't really decide between Fall Guy and Where Are You Going, Where Have You Been? so I gave him both. Not sure this game is going to run long enough to have to give the players four Interlocks.

    Necro'ing this thread because it's the first time I've created Ciphers and I'd appreciate feedback on my choices.

    For Mr. List, a Tempter with a narrow vision of Hell:

    Cipher: Bloom where you're planted.
    The Psychopomp Jevnaiah Fell when he found a flaw in the God-Machine's design, and spent many years as a Saboteur determined to destroy the false god, root and branch. That changed when his Ring took down a piece of Infrastructure hidden inside an apartment complex; rather than destroy the buildings, List decided to suborn them, and establish a much more private
