Synopsis

What are the differences are between my new version of Demon and the old official Demon?

Mechanically, many things. Mainly because the new World of Darkness uses a different system, but I've added and tweaked some things.
The main mechanical change was the addition of a Modus (or X-Splat). All Demons have a method of return, be it animating a dead body or taking over a person. There are 5 (plus others) and they determine the base starting point for the Demon.
The next big mechanical change was changing Torment into Turmoil. More than a name change. It would take a while to explain, but just know that Turmoil is like Torment was for Evocations, but if the Demon limits his power use, he can avoid the Turmoil. He has to have a high Psyche (Morality trait) as well. Lore, now called Domains, have been converted to the new system. Some changes were made to a few, some are gone and others are almost the same.

Thematically, Demons are no longer "fallen angels". I never did like that White Wolf threw out their whole cosmology base and pretty much said that Christianity was right (OK, they did not actually do this, but it seemed that way).
Then, what are the Demons? Their origins are not completely known. Most were gods and beings that were worshiped. Others were simply powerful beings returning to this world. But they all were forgotten and were left to Exile (A state of not existing yet being aware of it. Pretty much Hell). When they come back, they have to give up almost everything (the world rejects them and their power). But it is worth it to them since they are back (and not in Exile).
It is very important to realize that these Demons barely remember their old existence (they have given up so much of their identity). Some of them (Demons on the Modus of Rebirth) only remember their lives growing up human, and have to figure out what they are.

Houses are the Y-Splat. Houses are not the old Houses. They are more like the old Factions (a few even have the old names).

I've down played the Revelatory Form. It is now an ability gained only when joining a Pantheon (Z-Splat).
There are all types of Pantheons available (although I've only started the Angelic Choir so far). I like the idea of starting Demons to be more "normal". Plus, it seemed that White Wolf powered down everything when making the nWoD.

If anyone wants to help, I need:
1) Art - I'd like some more pictures for it. I've done a few myself, but would like more.
2) Fluff - Stories would be nice. Something to put in the first chapter.
3) Play Testers - The mechanics haven't been tested enough yet. I need people to play them or run them as NPCs and let me know what was good, bad, confusing and needed house ruling.
