I'm hoping The Children of the Fallen still exist.

This is were we find out that the demons aren't evil and just forcibly pulled from their home dimension, coming through confused and angry.

As a matter of fact, I have a spokedemon on hand who can fill you in on all of these matters.

I'm not sure it qualifies as a Warzone but it seems a significant type of conflict to me: the theological side. I'd like to know the main differences between Malraux's Bible and the Core Earth Bible to see the main points of friction between the communities. I'd also like to read more about the internal disagreements about Malraux's Bible and the various denominations that exist as a result, also how far they are willing to go to oppose the main group.

Will there be room for Religious Conspiracy adventures in the vein of The Da Vinci Code?

Will there be room for religious conspiracies and crypto-archaeology in a realm powered by faith, with the world being filled with objects of great power, hidden away in exotic locations, that require clever heroes to unravel mysteries and globetrot one step ahead of those who would sieze those items for nefarious purpose?

Good question! Good question...

Less teasingly, if you've never had Stormers and Cyberpapal agents chasing a Nile Deuce and a Half through a vine-covered New York City, both trying to recover the Eternity Shard that the Stormtroopers have hidden on it, while it plows through parked cars with a weird science magnetic-repelling cow-catcher welded to the front of the truck, with the Stormers and Cyberpapists zipping around in rebuilt junkers and motorcycles, leaping from one vehicle to another while blasting away with guns, lasers, and grenades, with the noise then attracting a flight of lakten-riding Edeinos, adding another layer of difficulty as the final destination, a submarine ready to whisk it away to Moebius lurks at the docks, where one Stormer does a powerslide of their motorcycle under a Brontosaurous which a Cyberbike crashes into and explodes...

Well, are you even playing Torg?

This kind of thing is *awesome*!

I would be disappointed with that. I'd prefer the demons to be evil and a threat to the Cyberpapacy for an evil vs. evil mix. Of course, then the demons might be too similar to Tharkoldu, so perhaps something different is in order. If they do go with "victimized" demons, perhaps a fugitive demon would be a PC option (like a witch but more extreme)?

Then you could have a department in the Delphi Council called the Demon Rights Committee.
