The grimoire describes two rituals. One puts a soul into a container. The other uses the stored soul
for storing sin. That is, your sins become the other person's sins; your sins are stored in the
stored soul, not in your soul.

lantern if present, or a lightning strike if it isn't). You escape with your bottle.
