And I Feel Fine: Introduction

"It's the end of the world as we know it,
 And I feel fine."

We have ended the world in many various ways, on this list. But we haven't used the most famous model, the book of Revelation. I will be posting a campaign outline based on Revelation, heavily InNominated. It is a Bright, High-Contrast campaign, intended to be canon-compatible, though I take the opportunity to resolve many areas of Canon Doubt and Uncertainty.

Revelation has many interpretations. One of the most famous is the one that underlies Hal Lindsey's Late, Great Planet Earth and, more recently, the Left Behind novels and movie. This school of interpretation is called "dispensationalism." Dispensational theologians are famous for interesting, sometimes exotic, occasionally nutty, interpretations of the book of Revelation. Almost anything the media circulates in the way of gaudy Christian apocalyptic comes from dispensationalists.

Dispensationalists usually predict that Armageddon will be preceded by a seven-year period called "the Tribulation," divided into two parts of 3.5 years each. In the first part, the Antichrist rises to power. In the second, he rules, then catastrophically falls. My campaign follows that timetable.

The general form of this campaign is an InNominated description of the Tribulation interspersed with roleplaying seeds based on the current events. Some are for demons, some are usable by any celestial, but most are for angels.
