Sin attacks range from Distracting offensive language to turning someone into a demonic lawn chair with Carnage level magic and may have a variety of final effects. It is not uncommon for the Curse attack to create Doomed Handicaps or through Malformed Handicaps turn the target into a frog- they can, of course, kill, blind and even change a Character's Personality or Core too). Curses do triple damage (x3) against Fate, Time and Illusion Incarna.

The Sin Monster is an embodiment of a specific vice, taboo, or sin, often in the form of a human Villain. They often have annexes and Handicaps that reflect their embodied vice or sin, and are often at least partially supernatural. Sin Monsters may double their Score when appropriate to their embodiment.
