Trapped on Earth. Abandoned by God. Desperate for Answers.
Relics: A Game of Angels is a new roleplaying game from multi-award-winning designer Steve Dee. Players take the roles of fallen angels, descended to earth to fight a cold war against dangerous and powerful demons, stalking them and guarding humanity over the entire span of human history. Until now, their powers were muted and their actions hidden in shadow, but God has now left Creation, and with Her departure the ancient powers of angels have returned to their full strength. The cold war has become a blazing hot arms race and whoever controls the Relics will soon control the world - and decide its fate in a world without a God...
