      I came to this thread a few years ago to get inspiration for my first sin eater game and now, having created several long running storys that were well received by my players, I think the greatest inspirations for this gameline for me was horrific world news made sensible by the gallows humor of philosophers like Neitzsche and Seneca.

        Tim Burton's The Corpse Bride seems very Geisty to me. Probably because its a lovely little ghost story. Perhaps the Land of the Dead is a bit too upbeat for a Dead Dominion, but there are arcane rules you have to follow even there. You could even see the Corpse Bride as a Geist who would have bonded with Victor had he finished the deadly wedding ritual.

          Abattoir works as an amazing story. I won't lay out any spoilers here, however, I have borrowed HEAVILY from this in an ongoing Geist game. The players seem to enjoy it a lot.
