It all started to fall apart when Michael left Heaven.
Well, as long as we’re being honest it might’ve been a bit further back than that. When Father created man and the pride of Lucifer tore us all apart. He might be gone now, but the cracks left behind by our Fallen brothers and sisters are still there. I can still feel them as if they were fresh wounds. I can feel their absence just like I can feel the loss of our Father’s light and the ache it brings to my heart.
Where did Yahweh go?
Did we really stray so far? Is this another test of our loyalty? Or have we been truly abandoned? Doubt is not a thing an angel is supposed to feel and yet here it is. I feel. Michael left to find him, promising a swift return and yet half a century has passed with no sign.
The host of Heaven grows uneasy in the absence of our leaders and the threat of civil war looms upon us yet again. I could not bear the thought of tearing into another of my family. Not again. Not like this.
Perhaps I got my wish as I plummeted toward the murky oceans of Earth, my entire reality ripped out from under me as my home was taken away.
Now all I want to know is why?
Stairway To Heaven is a companion game to Theatre of The Good Lady but it will stand alone. Crossovers may or may not happen in the future. It’s a supernatural slice of life with mystery undertones that will explore the familial relationship between the seven archangels as they struggle to cope with their new situation.
All the angels expect Michael have become powered down for now that they’ve been cut off from Heaven. They have their wings and can hide them at will. They can also use minor angelic power (instead of earthquaking and blood from the sky think slightly more powerful than other ‘average’ supernatural creatures).
The angels also are feeling things. Like heat. Cold. And even get tired. Why this all happened - no one knows.
Feel free to change your nature card up – I mostly just used random facts I could find on the angels to fill them out.
