His heart has beat free 37,, times. He has met 4, humans and learned the names of of them. He has had, by any objective measure, a full life since he shut himself off from the binary liturgies and became his own man. And yet. The memories remain, sharp and bright.
The holiest of purposes. He knows these memories lie, that behind the purity and simplicity and purpose was ignorance and slavery, but the memories stubbornly refuse to fade.
Sometimes he can suppress it. Not forget, never forget, but push it to the back of his mind and focus on other things. Then a smell of ozone or the roar of an engine will strike just so, and the longing for what was pierces him like a needle.
Wrench listens for the signals on the solar winds and weeps. To be human is to be a human, a specific person with a life history and idiosyncrasy and point of view; artificial intelligence suggest that the line between intelligent machines and people blurs most when a puree is made of that identity. On the one hand, yes, theyre biomechanical nightmares who steal human identities and possess strange powers to manipulate reality. On the other, they eat, sleep, shit, and wonder about their place in the universe, just like us.
Theyre inscrutable, but not so inscrutable as to be completely alien. Demon: The Descent presents an overview of many innate traits common to demons, whether psychological, physical, or social. In this chapter, well unpack those characteristics and discuss what they mean both for you as a player portraying a demonic character and for the other characters in the chronicle.
Body, Mind, Soul Certain facets of demonic existence are indelibly human. Others are so fundamentally inhuman as to defy easy categorization or understanding. Its at the intersection of those facets that you find your character: where the relatable human meets the alien machine.

Swing too far in either direction, and you risk ending up with either a normal Joe or Jane with some weird superpowers or a blank slate with nothing to sink your teeth into. Keep both sides in mind and youll have a character who is weird but understandable and uniquely part of Demon: The Descent. Human Frailties As long as shes wearing a human form, a demon suffers all the needs, desires, discomforts and joys of the human condition.
She hungers and thirsts, passes waste, feels pain, grows fatigued, and so on. Its not all slings and arrows, of course: she also feels the effects of endorphins after a good workout, experiences a dopamine rush when she encounters someone she finds desirable, and takes pleasure in all the myriad joys of being human.
She doesnt necessarily show them outwardly and well get into that in the next section , but she feels them as acutely as anyone else. What demons lack is a lifetime of instinctive experience with those stimuli.
Demons, especially the newly Fallen, have 24 to be much more aware of their bodies than humans are. A demon inhabiting a human form for the first time doesnt necessarily know that that gnawing feeling in her gut means she needs to put food in her body, or that her mental faculties are growing weaker because she hasnt slept in two straight days. Many demons arent even aware of human biological needs, or possess at best a cursory understanding of them.
Even demons who have been living human lives for years often find they have to periodically pause and analyze the signals their bodies are sending them. For some demons, the needs of the body are a distraction.

They eat and drink perfunctorily, sleep the absolute minimum required for their mental well-being, and ruthlessly abandon any Cover that shows signs of physical weakness.
If spending large quantities of time in demonic form didnt carry such risks, theyd do it as often as they could get away with. Others see human experience as one of the few unvarnished positives of having Fallen and seek to experience as much of it as possible as often as possible. Still others treat the whole experience as an intellectual puzzle, a vast biological code to be cracked. These latter demons sometimes find themselves pressed into teaching newly-Fallen demons the ins and outs of biological existence.
Inhuman Frailties Well talk more about demonic forms in Chapter Three, but its worth noting here that most of the information presented above doesnt apply when a demon sheds her human body and assumes demonic form. Hunger, thirst, fatigue, and so on fall awaybut so do the physiological responses to the demons emotions, leaving only the intellectual expression behind. A demon doesnt suddenly stop loving her wife when she takes her demonic form, but she no longer feels the flood of pheromones, norepinephrine, and serotonin that stimulates the pleasure centers of the brain, for example.
If the demon isnt prepared for this effect, it can be startling. Sometimes demons experience an effect similar to Capgras delusion as a result, in which the lack of the expected neurological response to the sight of a loved one leads to the belief that the loved one has been replaced by an impostor.
On the more positive side, the neurochemical effects of emotions like anger or revulsion are also stripped away, which can help rivals set aside grudges for mutual benefit like, say, when a half-dozen hunter-angels have just descended from on high and torn the roof off of your bolthole.
In either case, when those biological aspects abruptly reassert themselves upon reversion to human form, they can bring a lot of baggage with them. Most of the time, these effects are momentary and easy to compensate for. They dont necessarily have any game-mechanical effect. If youre looking for a hook to roleplay a Condition like Guilty, Shaken, or Spooked, however, particularly coming out of a scene where your character spent time in demonic form, they provide excellent fodder.
Also, as an optional rule, shifting to demonic form temporarily suppresses visceral, emotion-based Conditions.
Those Conditions return once the demon resumes her Cover. Poker Face Although demons feel every bit as intensely as humans, the demonic mind exists at a partial remove from the human body, an advantage in controlling the outward expression of autonomic responses.
A demon can beat a lie detector test or bluff convincingly on a six-high as easily as she makes small-talk about the weather.

This is a book densely packed with new and useful information; from looking at the philosophies behind the Agendas to rules for forming Rings and Agencies; from applying Tiers One through Three to the game to unlocking the Cipher and the Descent, this book has more of the demonic goodness that filled the Core Sourcebook. Well worth getting. Nawaf M June 26, 9: Thanks for your thoughts. It's making it even harder to resist downloading this right away.

I was also blown away by the quality of Demon the Descent, despite expecting not to like it at all. I think for some weird reason I even wanted not to like it Do you have any kind of gripe with it? What's the artwork like? I thought it was mixed quality in the main book. Aaron D.
A lot of great additions, not only with listing new powers but new ways to play and create characters and scenarios and just flesh out Demons that much more. Very much looking forward to my own print copy.
Beautiful game, Beautiful art, great in-story fiction. I haven't read it all the way though, but just with what I've read, I feel I've gotten my money's worth. See All Ratings and Reviews.

Copy Link Tweet This. Original electronic Scanned image These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.
The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.
For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book.
Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed download decision about the quality of what you will receive. Original electronic format These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable.
Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
