From the White Wolf catalog:
- Your sins cry to me from the depths of your Shadow. Yield to me, and I will grant you absolution and healing. If you resist, I will still aid you. It's just going to hurt a lot more.
- Hiya, bunky. Guess what? You're a passenger in your own body right now, so sit back and enjoy the ride. I've been watching you for a while, and it's pathetic. So I think it's time that this dead man showed you how to live. Hope your credit cards aren't maxed out, 'cause we're gonna need 'em.
- It's Getting Crowded in Here!
- The Puppeteers: renegades who challenge Charon's Law every time they practice their powers of possession. The Pardoners: confessors and healers of the Dead, but they harbor a terrible secret. Both groups work toward what they see as the ultimate good for the Underworld -- but would any other wraith agree if he knew what these Guilds are hiding?
- Guildbook: Pardoners and Puppeteers is the fifth in the continuing series of Guildbooks for Wraith: The Oblivion. The first Guildbook to contain two Guilds under one cover, Puppeteers and Pardoners includes everything -- new Arcanos Arts, Merits, Flaws, Artifacts, histories, and more -- that you need to play a fully realized member of either of these Guilds.
