Infernum is an RPG produced by Mongoose Publishing, using the "D20 system" created and popularized by the third edition of Dungeons & Dragons. It is a game in which you do not fight the Legions of Hell... but, by default, play as them. Most heavily based on Dante's Inferno, its list of inspirations also includes Paradise Lost, the various comics of Alan Moore (most prominently Promethia, Swamp Thing, From Hell, and Hellblazer), Neil Gaiman's Sandman, Mike Carey's Lucifer, Dune, Conan the Barbarian, Sláine, Gormenghast, China Miéville's Perdido Street Station, Kim Stanley Robinson's Mars trilogy, Foucault's Pendulum by Umberto Eco, Hellraiser, Event Horizon, and Doom.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_content_3'); })The year is 766 After Fall, over seven and a half centuries since Lucifer and his rebellious angels were exiled after failing to conquer Heaven. Ploughing a gigantic crater 2400 miles deep into the surface of Hell, an empty world populated only by Spawn, the First Fallen burned for an age without reckoning until Lucifer, in an extreme act of will, cut open a rift between Hell and Earth, allowing Time to seep into Hell and, with it, the promise of Change. Resentful of what happened, the First Fallen proceed to couple with the Spawn, then reshape the resultant abominations over generations of incest, crossbreeding, surgery, sorcery, alchemy, and other ghastly experiments to create the nine breeds of demon.Their intention was to use these creatures to conquer Heaven, but they failed to predict the intelligence and rebelliousness of their "children". Even laying upon them the Covenants, forcing demons to obey anybody to whom they swore loyalty or gave their word, did not prevent them from managing to seduce half of the surviving First Fallen into supporting their desire to remain in Hell and forget about Heaven. Lucifer's faction called for a confrontation, and each faction simultaneously ordered the demons to obey them. Knowing that they would either be destroyed once Heaven was claimed or remain slaves to their Abusive Precursors, the demons chose their own path and attacked both angelic factions while their Covenants were stretched to breaking point.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_content_2'); })The vast majority of angels were slain and devoured, the survivors fleeing into the dying universe of the Broken Lands, leaving Hell forever after in the hands of the demons. Lucifer vanished, no one knows his fate, but managed to lay a spell upon Pandemonium, the City of Chaos, that would prevent any of the demons from seizing the Throne of Angels and claiming dominion over all of Hell. By the time that the spell wore off, the demons had uneasily settled into the violent, bloody, oft-broken 'peace' maintained by the Nine Houses of Hell, each headed by one of the most powerful demons in the Pit, each one a claimant for the title of Ruler of All Hell.It is five hundred and sixty five years since the last of the First Fallen was slain, and Hell is in turmoil once again. The Tenth House, House Lictat, has arisen after three hundred and sixty seven years to claim the position held by the destroyed Ninth House, House Jelac. The Free Cities Heresy, a rebellion against the very laws of the Infernum, has arisen and claimed multiple cities across Hell, forcing the other eight Houses to accept House Lictat in order to focus their attention on this new threat. The Hellgouts are swallowing larger and larger groups of mortals. Fallen angels are plummetting into the Pit more frequently then ever before. This year marks ninety eight years since the Knights of the Harrowing plunged their mountain-fortress of Outremer into Hell to lead a crusade against demonkind. The possibilities for the brave, the cunning, and the lucky are infinite.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_content_1'); })The nine breeds of demon are Artificers, Beasts, Deceivers, Fiends, Hulks, Imps, Malcubi, Slavers and Stalkers.The Nine Houses are Astyanath, Carthenay, Glabretch, Haimon, Lictat, Oblurott, Riethii, Sturrach and Zethu.In addition to demons, players can also play humans and Fallen Angels, younger and less potent versions of the First Fallen.This RPG provides examples of:
