Character Creation 28: In Nomine

I didn't do one of these last night because I was too busy punishing myself for being a total cocking idiot and ruining dinner. I will admit that my regular bologneses use the sauce-wot-comes-inna-jar as a base, for to save time. When making one, it does help if you remember to have said sauce-wot-comes-inna-jar before the point that it needs to go in the pan right-bloody-now. I forgot, hence ruining a perfectly good amount of venison mince. My own fault for boasting, I guess.

Anyway, on with the show!

The Game: In Nomine
The Publisher: Steve Jackson Games
Degree of Familiarity: Some. I played a bit at university and a bit more afterwards, but haven't cracked the book in a while.
Books Required: Just the corebook; I'm not one to try the GURPS adaptation.

A Day In The Life

Not three weeks ago, I took an hour off from doing some redlines in order to learn the basics of transcription from languages that use a non-Roman alphabet (because my google skills failed me). After an hour and a half, I was rendering Burmese words into Roman equivalents of their pronunciation with skill.

Today, I came up with a resource-allocation system for fighting ship-scale battles in Star Trek from little more than scratch. In the span of about an hour.

Fear my brain.
