Every Wraith is visually and mentally marked by the way they died. Each ''Death'' carries it own benefits and flaws:

Added DiffLines:

** The "History and Other Myths" subchapter includes oblique references to the cosmology of ''Oblivion'', ''End of Empires'', the Time of Judgement metaplot, and the publication of the new ''World of Darkness''. In particular, the Red Star is identified with the Star of Bethlehem and it is implied that "the Sundering" was a result of Jesus' crucifixion.

* {{Splat}} -- The way a Wraith died and what kind of personality their Shadow has play a much larger role in the rules than in ''Oblivion''. This would predict a similar trend in GeistTheSinEaters.

Wraiths are not alone in their twilight state. Joining them are the ''Ferrymen'', enigmatic beings that may serve the role of Psychopomps. The Ferrymen rarely speak, save to tell the Wraiths to "have faith." If they are not careful, and wander to the outskirts of the Necropolis, a Wraith may encounter Reapers, [[http://wraithproject.cattail.nu/archives/tazreaperbluebig.jpg gaunt, cadaverous creatures wearing black, baroque armor]] that hunt ghosts for sport and drag them off to some horrible fate. Even worse are the Dark Walkers, vicious killers similar to Ferrymen at a distance, given away by their inability to speak. All of these beings originate from beyond the ''Barrier'', an imaginary wall that separates the land of the living from the Underworld, the "true" afterlife, which virtually no Wraith has ever seen. Those rare few that claim to have traveled beyond and returned are invariably insane, making it impossible to determine the truth of their claims.

* TheHeartless -- If a Wraith falls to her Shadow, she becomes one of the ''Damned'' and falls across the Barrier, returning only to wreak havoc on other ghosts. The Damned are insane and homicidal (but [[TheChessmaster definitely]] ''not'' stupid), even attacking each other when given the chance.

* TheHeartless -- If a Wraith falls to her Shadow, she becomes one of the ''Damned'' and falls across the Barrier, occasionally returning only in a monstrous form to to wreak havoc on other ghosts. any ghosts and living they can get their claws on. The Damned are insane and homicidal (but [[TheChessmaster definitely]] ''not'' stupid), stupid, having the ability to wait patiently and lay traps for the unwary), even attacking each other when given Damned if they ever come face-to-face (which is the chance.most reliable way to kill one).



* WorldWreckingWave -- Occasionally, hurricane-strength ''Storms'' will burst from across the Barrier and ravage the Deadlands for a short time. These are always localized events (city-wide, generally) and are typically set off by extremely negative events in the Liveworld. Storms are often inhabited by the Damned, and are the only times when they both appear in large numbers and ''don't'' attack each other on sight.

These are always localized events (city-wide, generally) (typically ranging from one building and its immediate surroundings to the entire necropolis) which are typically set off by extremely negative events in the Liveworld. Storms are often usually inhabited by the Damned, and are the only times when they both appear in large numbers and ''don't'' attack each other on sight.
