Geist: the Sin-Eaters

Jump to: navigation, search

In Geist: the Sin-Eaters you play as one who has died and made a deal with an incarnation of death itself to live again.

Origins and Organizations

Sin-Eaters each have a Threshold that describes the type of death that they experienced, and an Archetype that describes their approach to their second life.

Often Sin-Eaters will join a Krewe of like-minded members for mutual support, gaining Krewe Benefits as a result.


The twice-living posses a unique Power Stat trait called Psyche, and a Morality trait called Synergy.


Sin-Eaters can unlock Manifestations with the Keys provided by their Geist to create ghostly feats. They can also learn Ceremonies to perform more specific actions.

Many Sin-Eaters gain access to Mementos that are tied to significant deaths.


Sin-Eaters have access to several unique Merits beyond mortal scope, including specific Locations and Combat Styles. They can also access the universally available list of Merits.
