    replied to Demons in the Underworld
    So I see things somewhat differently. I feel like the nature of Demons is such that they can convince the Underworld to treat them as Mortals if they so desire and have a Cover available to create that illusion (I mean, convincing otherwordly and alien intelligences that they are perfectly normal human beings going about perfectly normal human being things is basically what Demons do 24/7 anyway). I might put them at risk of losing Cover if they brush up against an Old Law that applies to mortals (on the basis that whether they break it or not they will have come under close scrutiny by the entities...

    Oh no, they were definitely built and created by and for the Judges. It just may be that the right hand didn't know what the left was doing at the time ...

    Well, a Guild and Nome can potentially serve the function of keeping a society of Mummies relatively active in an area. If all the Arisen agree that DAY X will be set aside for the Deathless to arise and discuss Guild or Nome business, then that can serve as a grounding point for Mummies and their cults (which in turn lets Mummies keep track of happenings within their followers, attend to resources, and so on). For the Storyteller this can obviously also be of use in the same way that Vampire's Elysium is useful- as a set piece for the characters to meet their rivals, exchange stories, receive...

    Now I'm picturing some kind of cosmic horror version of Annie get your gun....

    God-Machine: Anything you can do I can do better! I can do anything better than you!

    Judges: No you can't!

    God-Machine: Yes I can!

    Judges: No you can't!...

    On the memory issue....remember that the Greeks believed that the river lethe made the souls of the dead forget about their living days. Far eastern legends tell of a similar potion given to reincarnating souls so that they were not bound by their past life memories. It could just be a consequence of the occult mechanisms by which a Mummy's life is "recycled" without falling to the Devourer....

    Well, there's a few ways to handle this. You can find a way to increase the frequency that they arise (my Nome likes to have a gathering of all the Mummies in the city three times a year and in fact has a special position set aside to do go from cult to cult to ensure that each Mummy is awoken on the appropriate date- they are called the Opener of the Mouth after the ritual said to allow a ka and ba to leave the physical remains and proceed to the afterlife). Or you can invent ways to lengthen the time a Mummy stays awake. Make your own list of ways a Judge will reward a Mummy, equip a tomb with...

    I second the motion for more specific details on what makes Mummy "hopeless". I have my own ideas about what that might mean and so solutions to suggest, but I'd rather hear more details on what's rubbing you the wrong way first....
