Quote from: baron samedi on February 22, 2007, 11:14:27 PMBut... cosmologically, does this notion of Inner Demon represent something (implicitly) about the BE universe? You're telling me "personal demons mean whatever you want it to mean"... Allright, but *why* is there a price to pay for this help? I understand that conflicts create story, but is there a reason for this relevant to the setting? Why would God/Fate/the universe demand payback? Or am I just thinking too hard for a simple mechanic intented to provoke "Peripeteia", e.g. more intense drama?Reading the comics, I thought that the section about Faith's discussion with his monkey demon didn't make any sense... I still feel like I'm missing something cultural or cosmological here, like I'd be supposed to understand what this is all about. Is this something that Shakespeare invented, or a medieval theme, a cultural meme, or something like that?
