    [Mod Demon Game] Hell is Other People: Lawyers, Mods, and Demons part 2

    It's been a while! In the bygone days of 2014, a Demon campaign began populated by mods: TechnocratJT, Random Nerd, The Wyzard, and BethDragon. This game, run by BethDragon, took place in Seattle and tracked the lives of three demons: Finder, Black, and Crash. Regular logs were posted of the...

    [Demon: The Descent] Of Faith, Power And Glory

    Demon: The Descent OF FAITH, POWER AND GLORY Last month I grabbed a chance to run Demon: The Descent, with a mix of players familiar with the World and Chronicles Of Darkness and entirely new ones, but none of us had had a chance to try Descent before. The plan was for a shortish game over the...

    [CofD] Mage Demon Crossover

    I am currently preparing a setting that I wanted to be an espionage/investigation style game. Originally I had planned on doing a demon game, but I have now decided to meld that with mage. Currently I am thinking of setting up a Guardians of the Veil Hierarch to mix and match with maybe a...

    Demon Intel Deciphering Codex [IC Let's Read of Horror Recognition Guide]

    This note was attached to a brown box, left by a nondescript post office with an odd stamping system. On the box is three stickers with a space left for the stamp, each one covering a different piece of an address. Despite the fact it had a perfectly mundane and normal street address on the...

    [Demon: The Descent] When is it appropriate to call for a Compromise Roll?

    Obviously I mean outside of abilities that explicitly call for a roll, like using Exploits or Transforming. I have a Demon PC in a game I'm running, and she's great, can't complain about her or the player at all. I was just wondering what the line is for having to roll for Compromise for acting...

    [Demon: the Descent] Switching Covers Mid-Chase

    So, this has been banging on in the back of my head for like two weeks. Suppose you have a demon with 2+ distinct Covers, and they're being chased through a city back alley/condemned tenement building/dark woods. During the chase, they get out-of-sight of their pursuers and decide "this is a...

    Demon: The Descent and splinters

    We know from DtD's core rulebook (and in more detail in the Seattle book) that the God-Machine sets aside lil' spacetime splinters for its own use. There are two things I'm wondering about. #1. Are there any splinters with significant alterations to WoD norms of natural law in them? That is...

    [Demon: The Descent] Sell Me On Demon?

    So, here's the dealio. I love Demon: The Fallen. Like a lot. Yes, I know the powers are dubious at best, but thematically speaking it was a beautiful game. I loved the Milton'y spin on Judeo-Christian mythology. So imagine my elation when I heard a new Demon game was coming out! And my utter...

    Let's Read: Demon: The Descent!

    Anyway, somebody mentioned over in some other thread, which I can't remember for the life of me, that someone should do a Let's Read of Demon: The Descent. Since I happen to love the game, and thought it'd be fun to try my hand at something new, I'm happy to oblige. Keep in mind I don't even...

    (DtD) Lucifer

    So I really like Demon: the Descent. I think the setting is really innovative, and I vibe the whole cold war thing. The one thing I don't like that much is that, for a game called Demon, it doesn't have a whole lot of Christian trappings. So, Open, what does Lucifer look like in DtD? What's...

    [nWoD] God Machine in Seattle/ What are the Exarchs

    Hey everyone, as you can see by my posts, long time lurker. I've been recently tasked by my gaming group, who play more board games, to run a campaign set in the World of Darkness. I decided that I was going to set everything in Seattle (where we live) and I started doing some research. After...

    [Demon: the Descent] Need help with city-chronicle ideas (Infrastructure/Agencies/etc.)

    I'm thinking of preparing some settings for Descent, and could use some help in coming up with Infrastructure and so forth, since I haven't quite gotten a grasp of it all yet. The first idea is basically a historical setting, WW2-era Paris. Basically the idea is the Unchained as resistance...

    Questions about Demon: The Descent and Mage: The Awakening

    Hi, I just got the book and while I have not finished yet I have a big question about it. Is it clear what a Demon does to the forces of the God Machine, but what do the God Machine does to exercise his control over things? Also, about Mage, how would you start a chronicle at street level? Being...

    Demon the Descent

    Can anyone give me an honest opinion on this New World of Darkness game? How is it compared to Demon the Fallen?

    [Demon: The Descent] Just...Why? (Kinda Sell-Me)

    Okay, I may still be a big fan of the cWoD over the nWoD, but I get it. I really do. For a lot of people, the metaplots were insanity and cliche at the same time, the mechanics of the various game lines did not translate well with each other despite all taking place in the same world, etc. A...

    [Demon: the Descent/Hunter: the Vigil] Heirs of Hell and the Lucifuge

    So, I've been considering this tonight, and I was thinking about how one would integrate the Lucifuge (both the person and the conspiracy) into Descent, from Descent's perspective. In Hunter, the Lucifuge just approach themselves as the progeny of demons and of Lucifer/Satan, and their powers...

    IC [Demon] Butterfiles and Hurricanes

    It’s 2 AM on a Monday morning (or Sunday night depending on how one looks at things), that rare moment when the city pauses ever so briefly to catch its breath before careening into another week. All the bars have issued last call and the lost souls of another spent weekend are on their way to...

    [Demon: the Descent] Towers of Babel

    The year is 2048. As the tides of the global economy change, money and power flow eastward into new harbors—like Dubai. The city shines like a beacon on the edge of the desert, drawing in waves of immigrants from all walks of life, from the very wealthy to the very desperate, with the promise...

    [Recruitment] GMC/Demon: the Descent: God Machine Revealed

    So, I've had this idea kicking around in my head for a while now. It's a future setting in the World of Darkness, where the God Machine has not only become public knowledge, but the acknowledged leader of Earth (as far as a Machine can be called a leader). The game then deals with Demons (it...

    [Demon: The Descent] Concept Critique: Security Expert Psychopomp?

    Reposting this here. Still working on the formal write-up, I just want to get checked on some of the points I've raised here before committing anything to paper. While a fair amount of this applies to Demon in particular, there's the wider question of whether being a "Security Expert" is too...
