Diceless Nobilis

Random geek thought

Okay, so I just picked up Nobilis a few weeks back, someone check me on this.
The Matrix is a Nobilis game
The Suits = Excrucians
Chancel = the practice contruct? Or possible Zion.
Mystic Earth = the Matrix
Prosaic Earth = starts out as the Matrix, til you take the red pill and then it’s the ‘real earth’? I’m a little shakey on the Nobilis terminology.
Neo is just the guy everyone’s been waiting for who got killer ranks in Spirit. (Everyone has good ranks in Realm and Domain, I think, since that’s just the program with the downside that none of it really works in the prosaic earth, but but the rest of it basically works.

Actually, the Matrix is the Prosaic Earth, and few humans can see the Mystic Earth of Ones and Zeros.
The Chancel is the hovercraft & the Practice Construct — Convenient (to the Matrix) with a lot of tech that can be used in the Prosaic Earth.
The Spirit Realm is not currently a relevant metaphor, unless it’s the Scorched Earth… that’s a difficult one.
