    Mime's unique! There's absolutely nothing like him anywhere.

    Wait, hang on a sec...

    Mime's a little like those mimes you see in France (and probably other places), isn't he?

    Except he's not going to succeed. Just ensure everyone in the class gets bad grades, including him.

    True, but They aren't that smart. They are are beings created by the combination of his neurosis and repressed magical ability, essentialy his worst nightmares, only They want to help him so that They will continue existing. So far said help has involved burning down his house (while his parents were inside) and forcing him to go to PACK.

    Hm, is there a NEXUS Certified Thieves Guild yet? Not like evil people, I just imagine people being hired to break into a place to steal something for someone else for money. Only they have licenses. You can get the client arrested, but the thieves are just doing their jobs!

They are in continual war with the demons of the Abyss, which includes Dalachrech and the fallen angel Nephrim, played by Earl. Hell is ruled by the Iron Queen (Persephone) and the Abyss by the Storm Demoness Lilith.

    There are many different hells, so you don't have to have anything to do with ours. But if you want to have Raz getting his power from the circle of Pride (also not in Dante, but it should be) or Greed (for power) or whatever, feel free.

    Or not. The fact that the Demons have organized religion whereas the Devils are the free agents of corruption and murder (and lollipops) is deliciously ironic.
    I think the devils are perhaps a bit more orderly and not trying to raise up their members to godhood willy-nilly. I mean, sure, someone might try and overthrow the Iron Queen and take her place, but they wouldn't do it without carefully plotting and lining up support ahead of time.

    Nah - Raz's cosmology is already fixed. I just wondered what he'd appear to be

    And none of my characters are *very* original:

    Raz is David Bell, with a dose of cockney, and MtA added

    Gunther is a big dumb Scandanavian Troll.

    Alex is a psycho Tzimice take on Lucita, the Lasombra iconic.

    Pete was Seasick Steve.

    I think this is what we've planned out so far.

    Circle 1: Lust [Archdevil: Morgana]
    Circle 2: Pain [Archdevil: Morgana, formerly Semiazas]
    Circle 3: Gluttony [Archdevil: ???]
    Circle 4: Greed [Archdevil: ???]
    Circle 5: Anger [Archdevil: ???]

    Circle 6: War [Archdevil: Baalthazaar]
    Circle 7: Pride [Archdevil: ???]
    • Outer Ring: Pride over Life
    • Middle Ring: Pride over Nature
    • Inner Ring: Pride over Death

    Circle 8: Fraud [Archdevil: ???]
    • Bolgias 1-10: As Dante.

    Circle 9: Treachery [Archdevil: The Iron Queen Persephone, formerly Hades(?)]

    The ones in red are the ones unchanged from the original Dante, and may or may not be changed if people think of better ideas for circles. The one in green is one I made up just now.

    Looks good to me. *links from Decker's badly out of date page*

    I'm pretty sure Persy killed Hades to seize power for herself.

    Or maybe Persy killed Hades when they were still both in Heaven, and that's the original sin that got her cast out into Hell?
    ...
    Or maybe both are true...
    ...
    MYSTERY!

    Anyway, maybe it would be useful to make a faction post for our Inferno? At the very least, it would just be a place to stick descriptions of various places, major NPCs and types of devil.

    Also changed 'Pride over Man' to 'Pride over Life' in order to account for elves and dwarves and oozes and stuff.

    Persy played innocent, lured Hades into 'kidnapping' her and arranged for the whole 'oops, I ate some seeds, now I have to stay! Boohoo!' farce in order to get out from under her mother's thumb. She kept Hades around long enough for her to learn the workings of Hell. When she was sure she could hold onto power without him, he had a mysterious accident.

    Yeah, a faction post sounds good. You wanna do it? Or maybe we should each do one and link them both from the Index.

    There's no Thieves' guild per se, but both SAINT and NO are somewhat similar. NO probably more so, since SAINT focuses on assassinations. You come to either of them, say that you want something retrieved and they'll do that... eventually.
    Also, I wonder if I ought to make a faction profile for the Inside goblins now that they're getting involved in things.
    As far as originality is concerned, I'd be more worried about the originality of Wenomir and the whole Demonhunter sthick if I didn't know noone here but me has read the Witcher saga.

    I don't think anybody's posted there since I've been playing though, so I imagine it's dead and gone. A shame, it looked interesting.

    But yeah, besides that SAINT and NO are good options.

    There used to be an organised crime ring in Inside, but that tried to become legitimate rulers and kinda got completely and utterly destroyed by the Empire shortly after the first civil war in Inside, the one in which the Empire became the Empire, although I don't think they originally called themselves that.
