In Geist: The Sin-Eaters 2nd Edition, you play a person who died with a powerful burden on their soul. On the other side of the veil, they made a bargain with a powerful being called a geist. Now your character stands as a medium, with one foot in the world of the living and one in the world of the dead. Will you bend your efforts toward the cosmic injustice of the Underworld, that consumes all who become trapped in its inky depths? Will you turn your wrath on the necromancers, the ghost-eaters, the two-bit frauds who exploit dead and living alike for their own enrichment? Or will you use all your newfound supernatural might to accomplish what you could not in life? Geist: The Sin-Eaters 2nd Edition is published by Onyx Path Publishing. It is a core rule book that’s part of the Chronicles of Darkness line of roleplaying games.
