Likewise, the game mentions that Sin-Eaters often make use of ''ofrendas'', gifts to the dead - usually booze, but can include cigars, candy, or hell money - to gain the trust of ghosts.

Libation is the tradition of pouring some drink, usually alcoholic, on the ground as a sort of offering. Sometimes for the gods, sometimes to the dead. This trope is mostly about doing it in memory of dead friends. Traditionally, one pours on the ground before drinking oneself. Will often involve TalkingToTheDead as well. May be regarded as DueToTheDead.
