Sorry for the shouting. But i think it'd be fun to play a game where everyone gets to be high powered like this.

I've played Nobilis a few times, and it's always been a blast. If there's enough interest, I could probably be persuaded to run a game.

For anyone unfamiliar, Nobilis is an oddball RPG by Jenna Moran, where the player characters are extremely powerful beings each claiming authority and responsibility over a piece of reality called an Estate, which usually comes in the form of a single noun, with some lightweight mechanics designed to help pen in its conceptual boundaries. It's a little "Sandman" and a little "American Gods," with playable concepts ranging from the abstract and dramatic (Death, Love, Friendship, Hope, Rain) to the oddly-specific. (Graffiti, Shoes, Little White Lies, etc.)

PCs can easily be written up with potentially world-destroying or world-creating powers, so the conflicts of the game tend to revolve around the strange and convoluted politics of Noble society, interpersonal drama, and abstract battles with forces and beings from outside reality who will challenge the nature, meaning, and validity of your estates.

System-wise, it's a fairly unique diceless game. Many of your characters' powers will let you declare something within your sphere of influence to be true and the universe will simply comply. Direct conflicts between these abilities can become a matter of power ratings in different stats and resource investment in a given action, but more often, the results are determined by genie-style lawyering while the universe around you bends and twists in an effort to allow both "miracles" to take effect without contradicting each other.

I could certainly play in such a game. Nobilis 2 is one of my favourite game. I didn't find the courage to read the third edition somehow (my eyes bleed in front of the artworks) but I heard the changes in the system were worthy.

In reply to Salanael (msg # 4):

I'm actually a fan of the artwork, personally, but I get that it's a fairly dramatic departure from the previous book. One or two more and I'll start the game.

It's been a long time since I tried to get into Nobilis. I've not got a specific idea NOW, but I could be convinced to give it a try. Part of Nobilis is that I always feel like I'm not 100% sure how it's supposed to work or be played... but I am defnitely willing to try,

Bear in mind I'm presently enduring some pain (and, we suspect related, tinnitus) from a tooth infection and taking meds for it, but pain is under control right now, It was Not, last week. I'm willing to try and re-learn the system (it's been years!) and get into it, if you'll have me.

I have always been very fascinated with the system although have only had the chance to play it a few times here on RPOL. It's not very commonly hosted. So it's really nice to see people talking about it again.

I would definitely be interested in playing in a game of Nobilis 3E if you decided to run it.

FYI, got word from Spider; They're recovering from surgery. They plan to set up a game this weekend, per the PM. (Sharing this here for Elyshian, the lot of us made a PM to chat a bit before you joined the thread, and spider booped us there. Letting you know :D)
