  • I think we might get to see a variation of the Dream Form rules. Three Attributes plus Skills. Dream Forms are already ephemeral versions of living people so what you have to figure out is just how Attributes (and possibly Skills) should scale with Rank.

    • I like the new Splats. Even though it sounds like the Geist can still make a Bargain w/ a dying person (rather than just the ghost left behind), the way it's written makes the whole thing feel like the body of a Bound is being inhabited by two ghosts rather than a Soul (since Souls and ghosts are not the same).

      I like that.

      • I'm going to piece things together and guess that Reapers are the Underworld's enforcers, they don't like ghosts refusing to enter the underworld, but instead of resolving anchors, they use brute force to make a ghost go their.

        • They'd certainly live up to their name while also being quite antagonistic.

            She did, and as usual she knocked it out of the park.

              • This looks like the same kind of positive development and refinement we've seen with other 2nd editions games. I'm hooked.

                • I guess since Changeling's Kickstarter is soon and I think they mentioned Geist would get a kickstarter if Changeling's is successful, are there already supplement books you guys have in mind as stretch goals, like night horrors and player's guide?

                    I would expect that those two would probably be planned as part of the line to begin with. They've probably got others in mind for potential stretch goals.

                          Another thing that seems to be spreading, at least theoretically, are the 'clanbook' style books. Vampire got a new one in Secrets of the Covenants, and both Werewolf and Mage had one mentioned in a brochure years ago.

                          It would certainly help paint an in-world picture of various aspects of the Underworld and Sin-Eater 'life.'

                            Will playable ghosts have Numina or Haunts? (And will they have other Sineater traits like Burdens?).

                              I think the closest we could get is history of krewes or just Sin-Eater culture book. They're big on lost history and discovering it.

                              I think a dedicated Underworld supplement book would be neat, though I'm not sure how necessarily it might be between Geist 2e's corebook and Mage's fallen worlds book, but would be neat to take a deeper look.

                              Perhaps a book to go further with mementos, deathmasks and ceremonies? Though I feel something like that would probably attached to another book, might not be big enough to justify itself alone.
