1 WHAT IS REQUIEM: AVENGING ANGEL?
                
                From the manual:
                        The Lord looked upon what He had wrought, and saw that His
                        creation was good.  And yet...

                        And yet, the Host of Heaven saw that the Lord was
                        dissatisfied.  This grand experiment housed not all He
                        would have wished.  The angels looked down, and saw that
                        His experiment as fraught with greed, corruption, and
                        stupidity.  The "noble beast" with which the Lord had
                        populated the planet was caught in a degrading spiral of
                        covetousness; ever wanting that which their creator would
                        not--indeed, could not--grace them.

                        And so, the Host of Heaven began to plot.  This
                        dissatisfaction that the angels sensed within the Lord
                        split them into factions.  While some would look to the
                        wisdom of the Lord for guidance and reassurance, others
                        would presume to interpret His desires...

                        The time, reckoned in human years, is midway through the
                        21st century.  Humankind stands poised on the brink of
                        intergalactic exploration and travel.  An interstellar
                        ship, Leviathan, nears completion.  With its launch,
                        humanity will spread itself among the stars, and the
                        heavens themselves will be within the grasp of this
                        "misguided" race.

                        Without the Lord's consent, certain angels among the Host
                        have taken it upon themselves to bring about the end of
                        human life.  In the process of executing this goal, they
                        have become dark, sadistic, and power-mad.  They have
                        become the Fallen.

                        Not long ago, the Fallen, led by a desperate angel named
                        Lilith, descended to Creation through the netherworld of
                        Chaos, and cloaked themselves in human form.  Though they
                        are not almighty, they still possess heavenly powers.
                        They
                        have used these powers to take over the will of an entire
                        government and its army of soldiers.  These possessed
                        leaders and their armies do the Fallen's bidding, without
                        any awareness that they have been overtaken.

                        The Fallen ready themselves for the end of the world.

                        Armageddon lies close at hand.

                        But the Fallen are not without opposition.  You are
                        Malachi, one of the Lord's chosen.  You must travel to
                        Earth to stop the Fallen from succeeding in their
                        destructive quest.  If you cannot stop what the fallen are
                        attempting, the Lord will have no choice but to instigate
                        Armageddon Himself, thus fulfilling the plan of the
                        Fallen.  You must not allow that to happen.

                        The path from Heaven to Earth is treacherous, however, you
                        must travel through the realm of Chaos before arriving
                        upon Earth.  This passage is one of the most difficult for
                        any angel to make, for you will arrive in Chaos stripped
                        of most of your angelic powers.  You must build your
                        reserves for the battle ahead, for only you can offer hope
                        for Creation.
                
1.1             WHAT'S SO DAMN (heh.) SPECIAL ABOUT REQUIEM?

                Well....
                
                - You're an angel.  With guns.  Big guns.
                - You're an angel.  With powers.  Cool powers.  Lotsa powers.
                - The system requirements are lower than most new FPS games.
                The system req's on the box are "Pentium 166 (200
                recommended), 32 megs RAM, 4x CD-ROM, and 116 megs HD space
                (275 recommended)." And of course, a 3D accelerator card
                (preferably with 3dfx support).
                - Smooth engine (compared to Q2, the LithTech engine, and
                Unreal)
                - Detailed engine. (Faces are clearer than Q2, walls more
                legible than Q2 and LithTech)
                - Intriguing plotline.
                - Detailed Gothic game world
                - Cool Angelic powers.
                - Cheesy voice acting (for you Resident Evil freaks :)
                - Freaky-ass monsters.
                - $20 rebate (for us canadians, that's about $30). 'nuff said.
                                And that's only single-player mode.  Anyone want to
                                gush about multiplayer?


2.0             CHARACTERS (spoiler-free)

                MALACHI: Mal is your typical Biblical angel, except for the
                fact that he's exchanged his flaming sword for an assault
                rifle, curses ("Jesus Christ!" "They don't even f---ing
                work.") and probably gets the girl in the end.  He's also your
                typical FPS protagonist who can carry seven weapons and ammo
                and not slow down one bit.  He's cool, but not as cool as Duke
                Nukem, or BLOOD's Caleb.
                
                LILITH: Leader of the Fallen on Creation (Earth).  A demoness
                with alabaster skin, blood red nipples, and an abhorrence for
                clothing and Malachi.  Not someone with whom you would want to
                f---.
                
                LUCIFER: The angel who instigated the schism and leader of the
                Fallen.  More commonly known as Satan and The Devil.  Likes:
                Demonic laughter, destroying humanity.  Dislikes: Angels, God,
                CSYHWH.
                
                AARON:  Your predecessor, sent to Creation to stop the Fallen.
                He has gone missing.  Part of your mission is to find out what
                happened to him.
                
                JONAH: Owner of Jonah's Bar.  Your first contact in the
                rebellion.
                
                ELIJAH: (pronounced Eh-LEE-jah.): A member of the rebellion,
                and more than likely your romantic interest(ew. Last time
                angels had "romantic interests" they made giants named
                Nephilim.  Check it out in Genesis 6.)
                
                LEADER (actual name unknown): The Leader of the Resistance
                (duh.)  He's the guy who sends you out on missions.  Killing
                him is a bad thing.
                
                (more to come.)
                
2.1             ENEMIES/MONSTERS 

2.1.1           HUMAN FOES (under the control of the Fallen):
                        [next update: AI info]

                        NOTES ON HUMAN FOES:  These guys apparently went to the
                        BLOOD/BLOOD II school of firearms.  On Purgatory
                        difficulty setting, their aim is practically flawless.  If
                        you're visible for more than half a second, you'll be
                        shot.
                        
                        LIGHT SOLDIER:  "Armed with assault rifles, pistols and
                        grenades, these soldiers are found on the streets of New
                        Damascus, where they are able to harass and shoot
                        civilians with impunity.  Their main functions are to
                        patrol the streets, enforcing curfew, and round up the
                        bodies of those who defy the curfew.  In many areas,
                        though, they won't attack unless provoked."
                        
                        COMMENTS: A shot or two to the head with the pistol or
                        assault gun is enough to bring these guys down.
                        
                        POLICE/PRISON GUARD:  "Found in the prison, these security
                        guards ruthlessly torture rebels and innocents alike.
                        They react to any breach in security with prejudicial
                        force.  Their black and silver uniforms were specifically
                        designed to subliminally provoke fear in their victims."
                        
                        COMMENTS: "Subliminally provoke fear"??? Uniform be
                        damned, I'd be scared of the big-ass gun he's got!  Again,
                        dispatch the bastich with a few shots to the head.
                        
                        LEVIATHAN SECURITY:  "As the security force on the
                        Leviathan, these elite troops are dressed in the blue and
                        gold livery of the world government force.  They patrol
                        the colony ship with heavy weapons and a sharp eye for
                        trouble, and are assisted by the cyborgs known as
                        Mandroids."
                        
                        COMMENTS: Three guesses as to how to kill them.
                        
                        MEDIUM ARMORED SOLDIER: "Covered in body armour with a
                        drop-visor helmet, the Medium Soldier can take quite a
                        beating.  Equipped with a variety of weapons, this type of
                        soldier can dish out a punishment worthy of the third
                        level of Hell."
                        
                        COMMENTS: 3rd level of Hell?  I dunno... the 3rd level's
                        pretty tough.  I've had to re-load my saved game seven
                        times before getting through the first two rooms.
                        Anyways, these guys are much tougher than the light
                        soldiers.  Their bodies are heavily armoured, so one or
                        two
                        shots to the head won't cut it.  Try a dozen or so.
                        
                        HEAVY ARMORED SOLDIER:  "This soldier wears something
                        similar to a Power Suit and is practically immune to
                        bullets.  The arsenal of weapons contained in the arms of
                        his suit is surprisingly large, and often lethal.  Heavy
                        Armoured Soldiers have been known to quell sector riots by
                        their mere appearance."
                        
                        COMMENTS: I want one of these for my birthday!!! The
                        assault rifle, pistol, and shotgun are pretty much useless
                        against this machine.  Try a grenade, rocket, or otherwise
                        throw the fear of God into them with a charged Pentecost
                        or something.
                        
2.1.2           MECHS (Mechanised foes)

                        MANDROID:  "A heavy, lumbering cyborgs, the Mandroid was
                        originally designed to perform ore extraction work on
                        distant colony worlds for the travellers aboard Leviathan.
                        Its chaingun was intended for keeping native fauna at bay
                        within the mining tunnels, while its pick was more suited
                        to the intensive demand of extracting ore from rock."
                        
                        COMMENTS: With a big-ass gun on it's arm, you have to
                        wonder what kind of fauna were in those ore mines.  Vorpal
                        Rabbits, maybe?  Mandroids impervious to bullets.  You'll
                        have to use heavy weapons and angelic powers to defeat
                        them.  I prefer Pentecost (3 charged blasts) or Rockets.
                        Be careful, tho.  A Mandroid's gun'll chop you into little
                        bits if you stand still in it's sights too long.
                        
                        CYBERFIEND: "Designed for the intricacies of ore
                        extraction, Cyberfiends are adroid, agile cyborgs.  They
                        are deadly, even without projectiles."
                        
                        COMMENTS: A swipe from their claws will take off a LARGE
                        chunk of your health.  A few shotgun blasts will make
                        quick work of them, tho.  Why do all the ore-extraction
                        bots have to look so damn EVIL?
                        
                        PEACEMAKER:  "Quicker than the Mandroid, but slower than
                        the Cyberfiend, the Peacemaker can shoot lasers out of its
                        head an swing its spiked tail for more intimate attacks.
                        The Peacemaker was cobbled together by the Fallen fro
                        spare parts.  They are a completely malevolent design."
                        
                        COMMENTS:  Malevolent?  I think it looks like a cute
                        little puppy-dog. :)  Again, shotgun blasts and heavy
                        weapons ought to knock these guys off their feet.
                        
                        ADVANCED MANDROID:  "Once manned with a pilot, the
                        Advanced Mandroid now attacks mindlessly but with an
                        intensified purpose.  The AM's with their twin chainguns
                        and heavy lifting capacity, were to be used by the
                        Leviathan colonists for base security and construction.
                        
                        COMMENTS: How the hell can you construct anything with
                        gatling guns for arms??
                        
2.1.3   DEMONIC FOES

                        NOTE: Most demons are more susceptible to angelic powers
                        than mundane weapons.  Probably because they're more

                        It packs only a small amount of punch, but is useful for
                        those "light" days, when a heavier gun just feels like

                        second).  It is good for shooting out windows and gratings
                        though.

                        have to worry about losing your aim.  Don't know why, tho.
                        Probably has gas-vent recoil compensation up the wazoo.
                        It's also really good for tearing a slice out of any bad

                        The gun's spread isn't that good, either.  Even worse than
                        the popular DOOM shotgun.  I tend to not use this gun
                        except when wanting to conserve assault rifle ammo, or
                        pinging off Kynthras.

                        different than QUAKE's, tho the grenades are heavier and
                        don't bounce nearly as much.

                        Like the Azazel, it has no recoil, so you can aim easy
                        after each shot.  Really good for those big honkin'
                        baddies in the Armored suits and for taking out hordes of

                        There are usually too many bad guys around firing at you

                        tremendous muzzle velocity (which would cause the bullet
                        to escape Earth's gravitational hold), most enemies simply

                        -is- a sweet gun, though.  One shot DOES annihilate any
                        foot soldier or non-boss demon.  However, ammo is really
                        hard to come by, so it must be conserved.

                        COMMENTS: Exorcist is much like the pistol.  Not really
                        good for anything except to knock out windows and
                        gratings.  I also can be used to push enemies back over an

                        COMMENTS: When I first noticed the power's name I thought
                        "Oh great.  A power that makes people speak in tongues."
                        In fact, this is one of the most diverse powers in your
                        arsenal.  It's more powerful than Exorcise, for one.  It
                        can also be charged up to 50 Essence to release a powerful
                        blast that will gibbify any soldiers in it's path.  If it
                        gibs a baddie, it continues on at reduced power towards
                        its destination.  There also appears to be a certain field
                        of effect that is bigger than the actual "ball."
                        
                        While I use this power most of all the offensive powers,
                        there is one problem--it does tend to gib a lot of
                        enemies.  Normally, that's not a bad thing; the more gibs,
                        the better.  But in this game, you don't necessarily want
                        to turn a potential ally/host into sludge. (see POSESSION
                        and RESURRECTION)
                        
                        In a multi-player game, the charge-up option is not

                        be the portion of their cup."

                        A more powerful version of Exorcise, but not chargeable
                        like Pentecost.  It does, however, have a faster rate of
                        fire than Pentecost.  Brimstone's good against quite a lot
                        of demons.

                        Just walk up to a bad guy, activate the power, and watch
                        his body quiver and quake, lances of blood shooting out.
                        My main gripe with this power is that it has a range of 0.
                        You have to be pretty darn close to a person to use this,
                        and that's not an easy task unless you want to use WARP
                        TIME or HASTE.  Still, it's good for a laugh.

                        will turn to salt, and the air currents in the area will
                        blow an arm, leg, torso away.  Pretty good if you don't
                        want to alert anyone to your presence.

                        COMMENTS:  BFG ex Deus.  When you activate this power, a
                        ball of yellow dots appear, with all the dots converging
                        on each other.  You now have 5 seconds to get the hell
                        (heh.) outta dodge.  Once the sphere coalesces, a large
                        explosion takes place, hopefully destroying everything in
                        the near vicinity.

                        corner and pump up on this power.  It'll take a few
                        minutes, but fortunately, there's no time limit in the

                        shield.  Very useful, but difficult to use in the midst of
                        a heated firefight.

                        aliens?  You know how they make that funky noise right
                        before sending out a big circular blast that hurts you if
                        you're caught in it.  Yep.  Malachi does that, too.
                        Except he's not a little dog-alien.  And he doesn't make
                        that noise.  He's a good singer, you know.

                        it.  When you activate this power, the screen takes a
                        purplish tint and everyone moves slower than you.  You
                        still move at a relatively normal speed.  This makes for
                        some really fun moments; dodging bullets and such.

                        COMMENTS:  Instead of shooting the baddie, why not make
                        him fight for you?  Only one baddie can be Insisted, and
                        the baddie has to be human.  While Insisted, the baddie
                        follows you and attacks anyone that attacks you or him.
                        If you push against your Insisted comrade, he'll walk
                        forward in the direction you nudged him.

                        launcher.  Luckily he's all in one piece.  Resurrect him,
                        and boom.  Instant ally.  Resurrected people act like
                        Insisted, but you can have more than one following you
                        (imagine the possibilities!)  Also, if a Resurrected
                        baddie gets killed again, it cannot be re-resurrected.

                        later.  As you activate this power, your Spirit leaves
                        your mortal body, and the screen takes on a pink/purpleish
                        shade.  You have a few seconds to find another body to
                        inhabit.  When hop into the body, you gain it's weapon and
                        the ability to sneak past unnoticed (you're in a baddie's
                        body, after all).  After a few seconds of possession, the
                        baddie's body dies normally, and your mortal body is there
                        again, taking it's place.

                        TO GIB OR NOT TO GIB.
                        
                        Pentecost may seem like a cool power at first.  With a
                        well-placed shot, you can take out 3 or 4 baddies.
                        However, when a charged bolt hits a baddie, it tends to
                        gibbify the poor wretch, rendering him unable to be
                        resurrected.

                        power.  It'd be better if it lasted longer, tho.  Anyways,
                        if you're lucky enough to have the MATRIX soundtrack, pop
                        it in after you start up REQUIEM and select song 2

                        There's no limit to the number of people you can
                        Resurrect.  I once had a small army of 10 armor-clad guys
                        following me around, drawing fire off me.  It's such a
                        good feeling, having the Lord's own creatures do my
                        fighting for me.  Just be careful, tho... if you make too
                        many followers, you're bound to get stuck.  Raising people
                        from the dead apparently gives them a poor AI.

                        baddies, guns pointing to me.  Bullets flying out of their
                        barrels, and I fly out of my skin into the closest gunner.
                        As I enter his skin, my eyes become his eyes and I see my
                        body fall, lifeless to the ground.  The guards, thinking
                        they've killed me, return to their duties... not knowing

                        As above... but I walk a mile in the man's shoes before I
                        hide behind some crates and let the flesh die.  When I
                        emerge from his skin (not even a stain of blood on
                        me--that's how cool I am) I walk on until I see the next
                        guard, hop out of my body, and into his.
                        
                        If you do this right, and have the patience, and don't
                        mind NOT killing a lot of people, you can finish an entire

                        possession time limit is reached!  Possession is, in
                        essence, an invulnerability spell-thingy!
                        
                        But, when in a possessed body, you gain access to his
                        weapon, and the bullets from a baddie's gun move much
                        slower than the gun that you carry as Malachi.  Malachi's
                        bullets are instantaneous (ala DOOM and QUAKE's shotguns),
                        while the baddie's bullets are actually entities that take
                        time to travel from point a to b.  Keep that in mind when
                        attacking.

                        BIBLICAL STUFF
                        
                        Since REQUIEM is a game based on biblical themes, I plan
                        on putting the similarities/dissimilarities between the
                        game world in REQUIEM and the world presented in the Bible
                        and traditional (read: Judeo-Christian) interpretations of
                        the Bible.  Currently, I just have a brief synopsis of
                        each issue.  *In future editions of this FAQ, I will cite
                        sources.*
                        
                        The War in Heaven
                        
                        In the Bible, the great War took place either before, or
                        some period immediately after the creation of the
                        Universe.  Satan (literally "Adversary" in Hebrew), for
                        whatever reason, rebelled against God and took one third
                        of the Host with him.  Since then they have made it their
                        business to keep God and humanity separated by sin,
                        hatred, anger, science, etc...
                        
                        In REQUIEM, the War happened a few years ago, and it seems
                        to have affected a majority of the Host, not a minority.
                        
                        Lilith.
                        
                        Lilith is never mentioned in the Bible.  She is first
                        "seen" in Midrashic liturature (a Midrash is akin to a
                        modern day "commentary" on a book of the Bible) as a
                        night-demon.  Legend says that when God first created Man,
                        he created a Woman for him.  This woman was Lilith.
                        Unlike Eve, she was created from clay, like Adam was.
                        However, Lilith wouldn't subject to Adam's authority, and
                        was cast out of Eden.  Cast out, she became a demon that
                        preyed upon babies, killing them while they slept (SIDS?)
                        Other legends say that Lilith was Cain's wife.  Lilith is
                        said to be extremely beautiful.
                        
                        In REQUIEM, Lilith is butt-ugly.
                        
                        A lot of names in REQUIEM are taken directly from the
                        Bible:
                        
                        Malachi: A minor Old Testament prophet.
                        
                        Judith:  A character in the Old Testament.
                        
                        Elijah:  An important Old Testament figure.  Called down
                        fire from Heaven to consume a bunch of Baal's priests.
                        Commonly pronounced "ee-LIE-jah."  In the game, it's
                        pronounced "eh-LEE-jah."
                        
                        Jonah:  Duh.  Jonah and the whale?  Anyone remember that
                        story from Sunday School?
                        
                        Aaron:  In Exodus and Numbers, Aaron was an aide to Moses
                        and Joshua during the conquest of Caanan.
                        
                        Leviathan:  A large sea-monster.  Many scholars consider
                        it to be a dinosaur.
                        
                        "Azazel" (your assault rifle)  In some Jewish texts,
                        Azazel is a head demon.
                        
                        Pentecost:  The occasion marking the true birth of the New
                        Testament church, tongues of flame alighted on the
                        disciples heads and they began to speak other languages.
                        
                        In the game, Pentecost is a way cool, destructive power.
