    Actually that depends on the gamebook you're holding because the different writers on the other lines had their own ideas on what the 6GM did and it's effects. In Orpheus, the successor to WtO, the 6GM turns the Shroud into the Stormwall that is extremely difficult to pass. Hence why in Orpheus, ghosts older than five or so years that Orpheus starts in post-6GM, are extremely rare. Because wraiths are being created in but never cross the Shroud because they can't and by the same token, older wraiths weren't able to pass through the Stormwall to the Skinlands. It takes a great deal of effort...

    Yeah, the Kindred of the East will rise regardless of the condition of their corpse while the Risen require a fairly intact corpse, especially their heart and brain. Without that, they can't become a Risen.

    The Kuei-jin are quite different from the Risen. Yes, there are similarities but most are cosmetic. What they have is not something the Risen have. In fact, the Kuei-jin can rise from cremated bodies while Risen can't. They need their body to be intact. But while Kuei-jin can only arise within the first two to three months, Risen can rise much later,...

    Off of memory, I want to say no. The process and drive behind becoming a Risen is extremely personal and people have a strong tie to their former body because... well it's their body.
