The mixture of satanism, directly addressing an undefined player-character, and random rolls evocative of divination, triggers the traumatic fear of Hell that Presbyterianism established in me as a child. Eternal damnation is not something I can easily use rationality to destroy. Its lack of dependence on rationality makes even fictionally motivated demonstrations of divination such as this have a strong hallucinatory severity to it.
Fascinating... but the game is rigged!
Loved the twisted lighting of the scene, and the voicework and dialogue were very impressive. Good job!
