GM Dictionary: Spirits #9

October is finally here! It is time for tricks, treats, and ghosts! This months GM Dictionary is centered around spirits and some of the different forms and aspects they have had over the centuries.


Geist

This is an interesting word which may often be a replacement for ghost or spirit but has links to larger concepts when used in conjunction with others. One example is zeitgeist which translates to “spirit of the times” and is often a topic of or underlying cause in horror and horror-adjacent movies.


This is a mini-article series featuring short explanations for words more commonly used in RPGs (or potentially so!) than normal conversation. Each month will hold a different theme and each weekday will have a different word. Note: these are personal, simple breakdowns and not perfect. Please tell me if I am mistaken and I will work to correct it! For anyone looking for a collected work please check out our Patreon. All patrons get a PDF collected copy each month!
