In Nomine is a role-playing game published by Steve Jackson Games. This wiki is maintained independently by fans of the game, as well as players and administrators of several online roleplaying systems (notably, MUSH, MUX and MUD games which are text-based and require specific software to access).

But the original game was published as a printed volume of rules, based on the French game systems In Nomine Satanis and Magna Veritas, both published in the mid-1990's in France.

This page is about the English version of the game, titled more simply In Nomine and first published in English in 1997 by Steve Jackson Games. It is also a showcase for the rules systems and policies of those who operate online roleplaying companions (ORCs), which are largely encouraged by the game's manufacturer.

Good & Evil. Life & Death. Rock & Roll.
