Nice! And sorry for taking so long to respond - I'm still a bit in shock that this is actually getting written, you see...

I do have one question - can ghosts, of the In Nomine taxonomy, form in Poughkeepsie?

(Also, I presume that this means that you got the thumbs-up from SJG? :)

The more I think about this, the more interesting implications I come up with.

At the moment, I've got two:

  • Given the nature of the place, Divine and Infernal Interventions probably don't happen. Sure, you can roll the right numbers on the dice - but they're just ordinary failures and successes, as befit the actual values of the dice.
  • The prevailing theory (and perhaps the Correct one - I don't remember) of the Infernal resonance is that each demon creates a personal mini-Symphony, which allows him to create the effects that he creates. Since Infernal resonances are nullified as well as Divine, it's safe to assume either that the personal-symphony theory is wrong at least in the details, or that it's not just The Symphony that's been disrupted. (Or perhaps it is - and it's just that Lucifer's connection to the Symphony that allows him to create the mini-Symphonies has been disrupted.)
  • Since resonance use is disallowed in Poughkeepsie, and the same is true of assuming celestial form, it stands to reason that neither Kyriotates nor Shedim can enter the city at all (since to do so would mean either exercising their resonances or being in celestial form). Does a Kyriotate or Shedite in a host simply stop at the edge of the Symphony-Free Zone, or does the host continue on, leaving the possessor at the edge? (This could be interesting for creatures such as Kyriotates of the Sword or Shedim of Death, whose hosts can be bodies to which no other soul has a claim...)

Nice work, Moe. I look forward to seeing more.

And I look forward to writing more... obviously, I'm back, and we'll gear up a bit with I Left My Heart In Old Poughkeepsie (and Can't Get It Back, Dammit) And Other Difficulties With The Region sometime this weekend. :)

Good comments, by the way.
