In at least a few cases, this stunt led to the resolution of an unknown ghost’s anchors. As it did with so many things, the Internet revolutionized the Twilight Network. Now not only could Sin-Eaters leave each other coded messages, they could communicate in real-time. BBS communities, newsgroups, and later fullyfeatured message boards sprang up across the world, usually password-protected and invitation-only, but sometimes right out in the open. The Internet is home to all manner of strange groups, after all, and one or two forums devoted to ghosts hardly draw undue attention.

As newspapers became more prominent in the 19th century, Sin-Eaters graduated from simply leaving messages to actual communication. Euphemistic want ads, letters to the editor, and even obituaries were used to announce the presence of a krewe and to request other Sin-Eaters identify themselves. While these letters helped to increase communication between local krewes, the relatively small circulation of many of those early broadsheets meant that contact with distant krewes was still a rare event.

As a player, you should mine your character for ideas that will make the chronicle interesting. In most cases, that means creating opportunities for conflict over wish-fulfillment, mystery over solid answers, and ambiguity over clearly delineated codes of conduct. When these points of contention brush up against the rules, it’s the Storyteller’s job to work with the players to resolve matters in a way that drives dramatic action forward, usually by making concessions to all interests at the table while adding new complications to explore.
