In the eyes of the Renegades, every conspiracy is a tightly managed organization comprised of faceless human monsters willing to commit any atrocity to advance its malevolent agenda. It is an oppressive structure bent on dominance through transgression. The Devoted are its brainwashed zealots and lab rats, its muscle and middle-managers, its magnum opuses and messiahs. Whether they do so blindly or knowingly, willingly or under protest, the Remade agents of the conspiracy have surrendered their humanity in the service of evil masters.

For those within it, though, the Web of Pain is not so monolithic. Conspiracies distinguish themselves from one another by their goals and methodologies. Some pursue knowledge and power at all costs, but others are motivated by higher ideals, for all that they must make hard choices in the pursuit of them. Within each conspiracy, individual personalities compete against one another for limited resources to further personal agendas — whether selfish, destructive, or altruistic.

As loyal servants of their conspiracy and executors of its will, the Devoted occupy important positions within the Web of Pain. Their abilities alone make them a valuable, often irreplaceable, resource. They are single-minded and doctrinaire in their pursuit of the organization’s Principles in a way selfish Baseline agents cannot match. An ambitious Deviant who earns a reputation for competence can attain a position of considerable influence within the conspiracy — or even become its master if she is ruthless enough. Who would dare oppose her then?

This book contains:

  • Expanded conspiracy mechanics, including guidance on conspiracy actions, Nodes, Icons, and Projects, as well as conspiracy advancement rules and the introduction of Privileges — Merit-like benefits that flow from a conspiracy’s Structural and Hierarchical Nodes.
  • New Merits, Forms, Variations, and Scars especially appropriate for Devoted characters, together with systems for working within a conspiracy — whether as a Linchpin or in another role.
  • Storytelling advice for Devoted chronicles, complete with additional storytelling axes and common narratives focused on the travails of a conspiracy’s most loyal agents.

The Devoted Companion is a supplement for the Deviant: The Renegades core rulebook.

Seems *The True Believer* by Hoffer would be good reading before tackling this puppy.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
