Not just Secret Service. I think I recall hearing somewhere that the Vatican has thermonuclear weapons. Not missiles or silos or anything like that, obviously, but I heard that they had one or more of the somewhat portable, low-yield variety of warhead. Has anyone looked into this, or am I just imagining it?
If so, well, nukes work just fine under Cyberpapal axioms. And there'd be no missile for CP anti-ballistic defenses to shoot down, so that might be a deterrent to Malraux right there.
Oh man, if you go by rumors, then the Vatican has a secret base on the Moon, ninja assassins, a vast worldwide conspiracy where they run everything, ancient demons … there's a LOT out there.
Turns out that when you're a thousand year-old central point for a mystery religion, people will tell stories about you that get blown up in the retelling. Who knew?
((But the cooler ones can be totallyc ribbed from for your game. If you want the Pope to be running a Euro-version of the Delphi Council, with agents running around and pulling relics and Eternity Shards out of secret Papal vaults? Go for it! The story's the thing!)
