Fallen Mechanics

Reconciliation

Much like Golconda for Vampires, Reconciliation is believed by the overwhelming majority of the Fallen to be a pipe dream. Something no Fallen can ever truly achieve; even most of the Reconcilers themselves only work to atone for the crimes they believe themselves to have committed, with little to no hope of actually becoming one of the Elohim of the Heavenly Host again.

But also like Golconda, there are those who insist that it is not only possible, but that the Heavenly Host would love nothing more than to have their Fallen brethren truly see the light and seek the forgiveness preached in the Talmud, the Bible, and the Qu'ran. And indeed, following a scene that took place on August 7, 2019, the Heavenly Host has expressed just such sentiments to player characters.

Please note that if your character ever does Reconcile and becomes a full-fledged angel of the Heavenly Host, they will be retired immediately and will become an NPC. Sorry, but we're not allowing playable Angels here. Given how powerful they are, that's just asking for trouble, game balance wise.

To become eligible for Reconciliation, your character must have the following prerequisites:
  • Obviously, they must be a Reconciler. A true, unrepentant believer in Lucifer's cause, or especially a Ravener, cannot Reconcile.
  • They must have Permanent Torment 1 and Temporary Torment 0. No, you cannot become Permanent Torment 0 by spending EXP.
  • They must have the Penitent merit, found in Devil's Due, page 100. Note that in order to purchase this merit, you must have a Permanent Torment rating no higher than 2, and must not have any dots in the Cult or Pacts background. If you have either of these, you must voluntarily disband your Cult (which may be easier said than done, depending on how fanatical your Cultists are) and sever your Pacts (meaning they, unfortunately, will lose whatever you gave them. Hope you didn't cure any terminal illnesses as a part of your Pact....).
  • They must not have any active Pacts. You shouldn't have any anyway if you have the Penitent merit.

Once these conditions are met, pray. Who knows: Maybe your prayers will be answered, and you'll be given the final task you must complete before you're allowed to be truly forgiven...
