    In my hunter campaign, I have houseruled that a sin-eater has to roll psyche+synergy to resurrect, and the more closely this death replicates the original death, the harder the roll is.
    So killing them in the same way/in the same situation etc add penalties, while things like the exact same weapon/the same place/the same killer add large ones.

    The idea is that the Geist has effectively delayed that original death, and by convincing it/the underworld/death itself that the death has caught up with them, the bargain is broken.

    It requires some fluff changes but it does mean a hunter can actually kill a sin-eater.

      That's a very elegant and thematic solution. I like it.


      Is it presumptuous of me to ask for alternating male/female pronouns?

        That is indeed a very good one, I think it should be put in 2nd edition and you should receive at minimum the pulitizer prize
