    I was inspired by Pushing Daisies and Princess Tutu to have a narrator in a chronicle once. The plan was that the narrator was actually a Tuatha de Danaan who came back to check in how the Kithain were doing as stewards of the Dreaming. It was going to faithfully narrate the first couple of sessions, then audibly get more frustrated by what it considered poor story choices by the PCs as the chronicle went on, eventually getting fed up and taking more direct control of events going on around the characters. The PCs would have to find a way to break free from the Tuatha's script.

    Unfortunately, shortly into the chronicle, several players' life situations changed, so it had to be abandoned before we got to the reveal of the Tuatha de Danaan.

      I forget, has anyone mentioned Clive Barker's The Thief of Always or Weaveworld? Or Stephen King's IT or his and Peter Straud's The Talisman? (Admittedly, they may skew a little more Lost than Dreaming, but are all worth reading.)

      Also, I'm sort of enjoying the new show Emerald City. Not as much as some of the other stuff I watch, but visually it's very fascinating.

        I thought the recent Channel Zero: Candle Cove series made for an interesting mine of Changeling material.

          The "White Walkers" from Game of Thrones, not exactly CtD, much more fitting for DA Fae, as some powerful changellings of the Winter Court. The very first time I saw the White Walkers I thought "Winter Court".

            Ok. Imma drop this here but..Has anyone read the last Hellboy Arc?. No, not BPRD. Hellboy, where he basically summons the armies of Arthurian legend to fight Nimue, messenger and champion of The Dragon of Revelations?.

            because if thats not good inspiration for changeling, i have no idea what else might be


            ALSO..Would Alan Wake be a good example of changeling? from the point of view of an Enchanted?

              All of Hellboy is wonderful inspiration just for the amounts of real world myth and folklore it's always drawn upon. My two personal favorites are his adventures in Mexico in the 50s and the one about the African legend of Makoma.

              You know, the Kingdom of the Feathered Serpent should really have some sort of heroic knightly order who are all masked luchadors.

                So, i been reading this novel by Joe Hill "NOS4A2" About a child killer who takes them to a place known as "ChristmasLand."
                The protagonist (Vic) has this "Gift" which allows her to ride her bicycle and teleport Anywhere where she wants to (by crossing an imaginaty bridge)

                (BY THE WAY, TO AVOID SPOILERS. THE FIRST 5 PAGES STABLISH THAT THE KILLER'S BEEN IN A COMA FOR DECADES, THE BOOK IS NARRATED THROUGH FLASHBACKS AND FLASHFOWARDS).

                Vic was able to "Escape" manx (The Killer) when she was very young. The book potraits her "Teleporting" to his home.
                In the current page where i am, she is describing having "Two Version" of how she got there in her mind. One being that she ran away from home, tried to take a train, Charles Manx (The killer) poisoned her and took her to his Car (Which for any purpouses could be a Chimera) and took her to the house on "Christmas land." (an abandoned themepark). The other version is that she heard about him through a librarian who can get "Clues" by throwing pices from Scabble, she took her bike and went through the Imaginary Bridge, and she ended up on this old house smelling of Gingerbread and with Dead Childrens/Demonic Kids/Kidnapped children..

                So....

                Is it a good inspiration for Changeling or am i High Again?

                  NOS4A2 is a little more Lost than Dreaming (IMO), but still a good read, and does offer up some interesting ideas for darker corners of the Dreaming. I was rather amused by the book's map showing ChristmasLand also including references to Hill's earlier book Horns and his graphic novel series Lock & Key, as well as to his father's book IT.
