Guildbook: Spooks and Oracles is a splatbook for Wraith: The Oblivion detailing the Spooks, users of Outrage and Oracles, users of Fatalism


From the White Wolf catalog:

This is my fist. That is your Fetter. This is your Fetter after I've beaten the living hell out of it with my fist. Any questions?
I am a spider in the web of Fate. You are a fly, caught in it. I walk along the strands, untouched. You are bound. The more you struggle, the worse it will be.
The Spooks: Pathos-runners, Fetter-breakers and bagmen of the Underworld. The Oracles: They saw Charon's downfall -- do they hide the secret of his return? The influence of these Guilds stretches from the mean streets of the Necropoli to the chambers of the Onyx Tower. Nobody know their real agendas, though -- except perhaps those who've read this book.

Background InformationEdit

This was the final Guildbook released. It continued the practice started by Guildbook: Pardoners and Puppeteers of including two Guilds in one volume.

In the table of contents, the number labeling the first Steel and Souls story is misnumbered as V. It should and does read VII on the story itself.
