  • What "Chronicle" Do You Think We'll Get?

    Vampire had the strix, Werewolf the idigam, Mage the fallen world, Promethean the firestorm, Changeling the huntsmen, and Hunter the slasher. What do you think Geist will get?

    Four possibilities jump out at me:

    Underworld: The teasers we've seen so far play up the image of the Underworld having an intelligence and malice all its own. Not something sineaters all know, but something a lot of them think and have good reason to think. A chronicle where they have to take sides for and against the Underworld itself could be pretty epic.

    Chthonian: When the idea of Geist second edition was first raised, this seemed to be one of the more popular notions. Things native to the underworld that could threaten both the dead and the living. Most similar to the idigam and strix in general atmosphere.

    Crisis: We now know that in 2e, bound can't form at any given time and place - only when and where there is a lot of ambient death. Except now. Some think it's because the world's population is now high enough that enough people are dying at any given moment without the need for a specific crisis to cause it - others think it portends some kind of catastophe - a chronicle focussed on this question could be pretty moody.

    Krewe: Sineaters don't have a long-running culture, and one of the other popular ideas in the past was a krewe chronicle where the PC's play a part in building one. With the thing about bound not appearing all the time, we now have a reason why now may be the first opportunity for such a culture to develop - which sets up a krewe chronicle pretty well.

    Any other ideas? Or do we already know, and I've missed that?

    Underworld seems most likely. I wouldn't be surprised if the game was more about dealing with the Underworld, similar to werewolves and the Hisil, especially considering aboveworld ghosts tend towards the weak and easy to deal with.

    There's also the mysterious masked ghosts, though.

      I’d definitely bet it’s the Underworld Chronicle, unless that name runs into legal issues with the Underworld film franchise (wouldn’t that be ironic).

        Aren't Reapers something specific now, and already listed as antagonists who don't like the Bound (thinking that they cheat death)?

        The Reaper Chronicle?

          Huh. That sounds like it could be interesting.

            I was under the asumption that it would be the Reaper Chronicle. Mostly because that's how it feels going from other 2es (notably Changeling 2e with the Huntsmen).

              It was already revealed wasn't it? Geist the Sin-eaters 2nd Edition featuring the Chronicle of the Dead. Keeps the reverse wording theme of Geist that standouts out from the other gamelines.

                  The name "Chronicle of the Dead" was given here: http://theonyxpath.com/all-souls-day...he-sin-eaters/

                    The Stygian Chronicle is catchy.

                      Huh. Not sure how we all missed that, but ok.

                      (unless if it was clarified later that that's not the "_______ Chronicle" title)

                        Cheers. May the Baron always accept your rum.

                          "Ah yes, 'The Reaper Chronicle.' The new-antagonist-based subtitle that's supposedly a given going by the other gamelines. We have dismissed that claim."

                            Only half of the 2es so far are named after their antagonists.

                              So, the list below, with bold where the antagonist is the Chronicle name.
                              Vampire: The Strix Chronicle
                              Werewolf: The Idigam Chronicles
                              Mage: The Fallen World Chronicles
                              Promethean: The Firestorm Chronicles
                              Changeling: The Huntsman Chronicles
                              Hunter: The Slasher Chronicles
                              Geist: ???
                              Mummy: ???
                              Demon: [The God-Machine Chronicles?]
                              Beast: [This doesn't have a Chronicle, does it?]
                              Deviant: ???

                              4-5/11 with Antagonist Chronicles. Beast is 2E, but doesn't have a Chronicle. Demon is 2E, though before 2E was fully a thing. Even though The God-Machine Chronicle was for Core, it really fits Demon.


                              Malkydel: "And the Machine dictated; let there be adequate illumination."
                              Yossarian: "And lo, it was optimal."
