Every few years I crawl out of the woodwork and attempt to do something interesting.

Unfortunately it looks like a no. I can put it in a Doc but I'm at work and that will take a little time given the amount of information. It's the whole reason I post the lore off-site.

I've updated the links, and posted a Google Docs version. It's not as neat as I'd like, but everything is there.

Ooookay, there's a lot of information here, but I'm just wanting to make sure I'm understanding this right:

Our characters are new hires for Apex, an organization that hires and trains people to fight monsters. To facilitate our ability to blast/punch/poke-with-a-stick, we will be teaming up with a kind of empowered spirit (the Daemon), who is also actively employed (not enslaved?) by Apex.

The following things are true about the Daemon:

1.) It is an independent being in its own right
2.) It is aligned with (though not necessarily friendly with) the human player character
3.) It grants power to the human player character in the form of various powers and abilities
4.) That power is granted to the human character when the Daemon is resident within an object (a gun, a handkerchief, the lost shaker of salt) and that object is on the human character's person. This lets the player character shoot fireballs, have super-tough skin, or any number of other effects, however:
5.) The Daemon can manifest itself as a physical presence and act independently from the human character.

Which leads me to some questions - my apologies, I'm sure I didn't see these addressed in the document, but it's possible that the mushrooms are still working.

1.) When the Daemon manifests, does it take its power back from the Handler, or is there now an empowered human and a manifested Daemon?

2.) Is the player-Daemon interaction meant to be "voice in your head, except when the shit hits the fan," or more "buddy cop where the buddy has to hide sometimes because he's a werewolf," or "I dunno man, decide which one you like best?"

I'll probably have more questions soon - but I am intrigued by this and I'm pondering a character(s)....

Daemons are independent entities and fully sentient.

They are more or less employees of Apex. Incredibly hostile Daemons are locked in containment for the safety of others.

Daemons are your Human character's coworkers.

While not all Daemons are sociable. In order to get paired with a Handler they have to at least be able to tolerate that person. They're putting their lives in each others hands. They should be able to respect that.

All Daemons grant Humans a power and are fully capable of manifesting themselves as a separate entity from their vessel and can fully choose to do whatever they want independent of their Handler.

So to answer your questions.

Handlers are borrowing the power the Daemon's grant to them. So it's not always 'on'. And no Daemon means no power. All the more reason to have s vessel that's easy to carry.

It's essentially a buddy cop thing. Like imagine trying to hide a talking horse from your Landlord sort of thing.
