    Oh yes.

    It's since been fixed. I don't know when it's going out to backers.

    The first campaign I ever ran was a mage game set in DC. The players were set to an investigation of a slasher who evoked vampirism in his murders. And then they actually had to recover a Changeling from the Cheiron Group. The same Changeling Annika is based on, but she was eight in the game (side note, if you go to her character sheet at the link below, you can see the photo-reference I sent Matt). The Cheiron Group had drafted a pediatric endocrinologist (who was the biological father of another mage, a twenty-two year old woman named Meadowlark who was in a relationship with one of the Councilors) to study if there was anyway for them to mimic her thermal adaption in medical care.

    That was a nice game.

    I'm sure I could come up with some, but I think the group is pretty well-rounded. Instead, why don't I tell y'all the story of how and why I made Malik a tracker? Let's go.

    True story, when I was younger, I worked for political campaigns. In 2012, I was one of the (if not the) youngest senior campaign staff members for a major campaign, and my candidate won her seat in the House of Representatives. Side note, I actually hate her now. ANYWHO. I went to undergrad with another woman who worked on campaigns. No names will be given, and the state will also not be given. But my friend was nineteen or twenty years old at the time, and she worked on a campaign for a woman who (another side note) became really famous nation-wide in 2013. So, my friend was a tracker for this politician. And one night, my friend was at an event for the opponent, pretending to be a young member of his party, and a supporter. Fake FB page and everything. At this event, another politician, not the opponent, just someone else at the event, came up to her and said, "it's a good thing I don't have a pretty young thing like you in my office, or I'd get into trouble." And my friend had all of this recorded, because she was at the event as a tracker. So the campaign got that tape, and I actually don't know what if anything happened, but yeah, ANYWAY, I really, really wanted to make a tracker character, as a sort of homage to my friend, and that's where that came from. The end.

    Thank you! So glad you're happy. I know you were looking forward to this.

    It fits perfectly in the setting, and provides further good examples of what Beast and Horrors can be. Very happy with it.

    Now to start pestering Matt for the Player's Guide

    That second one.

    However, I'm currently running a game with a young child Storyteller character who's a Beast. An eleven year old.

    Matt told me to use the Beast conversion rules for a character whose line wasn't 2E yet. I'm glad you like her! And when Changeling 2E comes out, I'll probably convert her myself, so I can post that when I do, unless y'all would prefer to do it yourselves.
    I kinda figured that's what happened. I will most likely do a rough conversion with what we have now so I can run a Beast demo, but definitely look forward to a more "official" version.

    Personally I loved the Changeling's backstory and character details. I especially love how she (and all of the characters) fits into the brood so nicely. My only complaint would be that I wish she was done in 2nd ed rules, but that shouldn't really be too difficult to convert.

    I do have one question and I don't know if this should be errata, but I saw the family ties listed on Annika, but I didn't see it listed anywhere else. Shouldn't it at least be on Maia?

    And it should 100% be Maia, I included that in my drafts. Matt, is that something else we should add to the errata page?
