In Nomine Homebrew
The White Wolf arrangement of Ability Scores looks fine. But…
These are creatures who should be able to dominate the hell out of just about any creature out there. Maybe we should allow them to jump past the cap of 5? Or maybe just make it cheaper to do so?
We need an equivalent of Blood Potency and Wyrd here. The metaphors for In Nomine are typically musical and relating to a symphony… Any idea of how to express the volume of their instrument is louder?
Perhaps we should consider the upper limitations, physically, mentally, and socially of other white wolf creatures to gain a measure of a angel/demon baseline. Also, do different ability scores play different functions in the three realms? As to character creation we could increase the number of points players can allot to their scores and also make it cheaper to increase the scores. As to a Blood Potency or Wyrd equivalent, how about simply Forces (as from In Nomine’s books)? If not we could try looking up old terms for fire or ‘spark of life’ as reference to the fire or spark of creation within the angels or demons. Or we could try musical terms. What about Aria? From the wikipedia page, “An aria (Italian for air; plural: arie or arias in common usage) in music was originally any expressive melody, usually, but not always, performed by a singer.” That may actually be perfect.
