Knyta an (Krewe Binding)

Knyta an (Krewe Binding)

Kostnad: • | Slag: Psyche (or Psyche + Presence) | Handling: Extended (target number of 6 to found a krewe or 3 to join an existing krewe) | Tidspann: The Sin-Eater can roll for this ceremony once every 10 minutes if founding a krewe or once a turn if joining a krewe.

This ceremony sits at the heart of Sin-Eater culture. It allows a group of Bound to found a new krewe and a Sin-Eater to join an existing krewe.

Performing the Ceremony: The ritual requires a place associated with death, like a graveyard, morgue, or crematorium, for optimal success. Each founder cuts a palm, doing one point of lethal damage and spilling a quantity of blood, and lies down to enter a communal death-like trance. There they establish the channel, one part receiving revelation and one part establishing their own ethos. Only a single member need actually know this ceremony, but all founding members must perform the same actions. To join an existing krewe, the new member must be led by an existing member, who is the only one who need know the ceremony. The new member formally accepts membership in the krewe, cuts her palm for one point of lethal damage, and enters into a vision of the krewe’s channel.

Roll Results

Dramatic Failure: All successes are lost, and the rite is tainted. The Sin-Eater can never join the particular krewe. Sin-Eaters attempting to found a krewe must add, subtract, or replace a member before they can perform the ceremony again.
Failure: No successes are gained.
Success: The Sin-Eaters successfully found a krewe or the Sin-Eater successfully joins the krewe. See Founding a Krewe (pp. 179-184) for further information.
Exceptional Success: No additional benefit.

Suggested Modifiers

+1 | The Sin-Eaters ingest intoxicants or hallucinogens immediately before the ceremony.
–2 | One or more of the individuals joining feels coerced into joining.
–3 | A Sin-Eater joins or attempts to found a krewe for the express purpose of harming or betraying it.
