Goetic Gospels is the Endowment of the hunter conspiracy the Knights of Saint George in Hunter: The Vigil.

To First Revelation members and those of deep Christian faith, the Gospels are lost teachings of Jesus Christ, given by Him to banish "demons". The older, more experienced members know that underneath the iconography are the tools to manipulate the powers of the ancient gods that lie beneath the existence of the world. As the Knights are centered around the destruction of witches, the Gospels revolve around the disruption and control of magic. There are three branches of the Gospels: the Gospel of Agares, which breaks magical connections, the Gospel of Amon, which causes feelings of guilt and sin, and the Gospel of Beleth, which affects the Source of magic. Only the first three powers of Beleth have been found and successfully translated.

Each dot the Knight takes in the Endowment Merit represents the highest ability they may take. In addition, a Knight may have no more than five total dots in Goetic Gospels; for every dot above five, they must take a severe derangement. Most Knights chose to focus on a single branch.

  • Vicious Cycle (••••) : The Knight summons a demon that forces a witch to relive their worst sin.
