Reliquaries

The way I understand them, Reliquaries are not just GodNet data vaults, but they have something very supernatural about them, much in the same way as the Lost Wonders in the Living Land. So it would not necessarily be surprising (to a GM) to see a Reliquary containing long lost data from, say, the Ukhaan or the Egypt that Never Was, despite the fact that Magna Verita never had any contact with either Cosm before the Reality War.

Right?

The only thing I have so far from the Cyberpapacy kickstarter is the Cyberpapacy Sourcebook. I'm sure everyone is out for the holiday week. Who do I email on monday?

I realize that there's no space to turn this into a Law like the Law of Wonders, but I think it would be nice if this was given a little more visibility :) Between Reliquaries and revelation-by-prayer, the Cyberpapacy becomes a very, very, very tempting destination for everyone, in particular the Delphi Council ("Let's find how to beat everyone!") but also Pan-Pacifica (The same, but also "Let's save years of R&D!"), the Nile Empire ("What do you mean, they have archives on the Egypt That Never Was and we don't?"), Victorians ("I dare say someone should find out this book they have on the origins of Horrors, shouldn't they?"), Thrakmoss ("Yesssss.... knowledge from beyond death...."), ...

Hey, if there was space, I'd call Reliquaries + revelation-by-prayer the Law of Revelation :)
