As you feel your physical selves fall you suddenly find yourselves standing in a circle, each facing one another. You are no longer holding hands, each just over an arms-length appart, and the cut you made on your palm is gone. Your companions stand before you, and so does your Geist.

Trust's Geist is a smartly dressed but shadowy, authoritative man who's face is obscured, holding rope wrapped around Trusts ankles, wrists and neck.

Chariot's Geist is a man clad from head to toe in rusted and poorly maintained iron armour, with a rope dangling from his neck that is frayed at the end.

John's Geist is a young woman in her 20's, but her once graceful body is twisted and broken unnaturally and she continues to bleed from her wounds.

They look to you, then to the others as though awaiting one of you to speak before they do.

Trust looked sincerely shocked for a moment before chuckling somewhat tentatively. "So how's this for a party?" she quipped.

Your geists all look at you.

Johns gives him a gentle smile.

Trusts toys gently with the ropes in his hands, easing off the pressure then gripping tightly again.

Chariots readjusts his helm to sit more 'comfortably'.

You all feel put at ease by their actions.

Johns geist then looks to the other two again for a moment before looking to you all again. "Hello there" she says to all three of you. The others give a small welcoming nod.

Trust flinched when the ropes tightened for a time  before relaxing.

"Hi. Grace, correct?" Trust asked in a friendly manner.

"To be bonded as a krewe, you will be bonded in a way, as you are with us. We chose you for a reason, and you've all come together with unified beliefs. You just dont know it yet" Grace says gently.

"We share many things. How and when we lived may have been different. But how we died, we are one and the same. We have been made victims of those we thought we could trust. Those closest to us, and our lives cut short" the armoured Hanged Man says in a gentle voice, echoing through the grate on the front of his helm.

Trusts geist loosens his grip on the ropes.

"What we do here, it will change you and it will change us. It will teach you many things about us, the afterlife, the world and beyond, and bring us together with unified destiny but thre will be a price. A duty you must adhere to. So you have a choice you must now make. But this is your only chance to leave. So if you dont want to continue here and become a bonded krewe, say so and we will end this. Otherwise..." Grace says warmly, holding her hand out to John.

The Hanged Man holds his gloved hand out to Chariot.

The Binder stands beside Trust and holds the ropes loosely in one hand, and holds his other out for Trust to take.

Trust looks away from her geist. "Not in a talking mood yet, huh?" she asked somewhat bitterly before shooting Chariot's geist a disapproving look and taking up her geist's hand.

With everyone taking the hand of their Geist, they feel a deep sense of calm wash over them.

Chariot can see some of the rust on The Hanged Man appear to flake away.

John can see Graces battered and bloodied body begin to cease bleeding so prolifically.

Trust can see The Binder's shadowy form begin to soften, and through the once pitch darkness gentle facial features begin to appear.


"Through our deaths we were opened up to the realities of the afterlife... A ghost can be the result of the evil deeds the person carried out while alive, or they can be the victims of the evils of those who still lived. They cannot pass on to another life, to reincarnate, as this deed has not been resolved. They still bare the strain of their misdeeds, or the scars of the evils enacted upon them, and so cannot find peace to move on" Grace says softly.

"But if a ghost has the resolve to seek justice for their end, or the will to redeem themselves and prevent others from falling to these evils they can become something more. A ghost with this resolve can be given the chance to become a Geist. As Geists, we become agents of a higher power that exists and awaits those worthy of reincarnation to be brought to the light. And so, with our new chance provided, we find those who relate to us as victims, or shared common misdeeds while they lived, and on the brink of their end we offer a choice" The Hanged Man says gently.

"We seek justice as victims, and we seek redemption for our crimes. And through our actions we bring peace to the dead, and balance to the living" The Binder says softly.


The rust on The Hanged Man's armour continues to flake away, revealing small shimmers of polished iron underneath.

Graces wounds begin to close and her misshapen form begins to slowly correct itself.

The Binder's facial features begin to lighten further, hinting at a rather handsome man behind the shadows.


"We are chosen to find those who can share in our endeavour for justice and redemption" Grace says softly.

"And we chose you to be the protectors of the innocent" The Hanged Man says gently.

"By protecting the innocent from the evils of others, together we will bring justice to those who do wrong, and bring redemption to those who have wronged others in the past" The Binder says softly.


The rope around The Hanged Man's neck begins to slowly disintegrate hinting at a shiny metallic core.

Grace's bloodshot eyes begin to return to their original colour.

The Binder begins to shimmer in an almost angelic form.


"This is our history, and it is our duty to see karma is satisfied" Grace says sweetly.

"Through this we will bring peace to the worlds of the living and the dead, and create a world where Geists are not needed at all. This is our destiny" The Hanged Man says softly.

"But to redeem ourselves, and enable justice to be realised, we must never harm the innocent or allow harm to be brought to those where it can be prevented. This is our ban" The Binder says softly.


The three of them then fall silent to allow the group to take in what they've said so far, as well as the subtle beginnings of changes in their appearances.

"Well I have to admit; I wasn't hedging my bets on reincarnation. Then again I didn't exactly know about ghosts either so..." she trailed off with her quip dryly.

"Allow harm to be brought to those where it can be prevented is very vague though. Very hard to quantify".

"No, wait. I'm sorry but this is bullshit" she decided.  

"Grace you didn't fall to an evil in the world and neither did I. We were both victims of unfortunate accidents. Frankly I'm insulted to be called a victim of someone I trusted and I'm insulted that you think of yourself that way" she said firmly.

"How can you stand here and talk about 'scars of the evil acted upon' the bodies of geist when your boyfriend is standing right there?" She said, clearly pissed off.

"I don't fit in to this little vendetta of yours" she said to them all. "If anything I'm here to exonerate my partner for an accident that he was unfairly punished for and, ironically, unlike you" she said, looking to John's geist, "I actually plan to do so with some grace".

John will look at Grace then look at Trust "It's the evil they did or that was inflicted upon them during life not the way they died that counts. Our lifes and deaths don't matter what matters is that we fit the bill 'We are chosen to find those who can share in our endeavour for justice and redemption" John explained to Trust kindly.


"You were both the victim of an unfortunate event. like it or not that's the truth" he stated.

"Our deaths were an accident. No one is to blame. But its what happened after the event that makes us victims, its how the world sees us even if we dont agree with it" Grace says gently. "As a result of my death, John was murdered. My father decreed me a victim in need of avenging, and so ordered Johns life be taken as compensation. In this way i became a Geist, and i chose John to bring justice for both of us because neither of us are deserving of the circumstances in which we are now in" she explains.

"...Glad to hear that's how you feel" Trust said, though she was a bit stand off-ish. "So what's the next step?" she asked.

Grace looks to John and gives him a warm smile. She then steps closer to the Hanged Man and the Binder and they step towards her, still holding the hands of Trust, John and Chariot.

They then gently bring the groups hands together and allow the three of you a monent to take each others hand.
