      I have been told that the Three Little Pigs actually maps to a historical German political situation, but I have yet to successfully track the details down. (The author who made the claim doesn't remember where he got it.)

        I feel like mapping your approach too closely to one specific, well-known story should have consequences. If you haven't created the story yourself, you have less control over your role in it and the Wyrd may get even more Rail-roading. In other words, don't model your approach on one specific fairytale for the same reason that you don't name your Freehold New Lyonesse or the New Alamo.

          Hmm... maybe the pigs represent farming, forestry, and industry? Agriculture and industry always clash when the latter starts to rise, but dunno about forestry.

          Yeah, the Wyrd probably gets its hooks on such daring freeholds.

          In other words, a story hook! (No, I''ll never be sorry for the pun )

            I'm suddenly seized by a desire to see what a freehold among the soldiers of a given firebase in Vietnam might have looked like, as part of a wider recent itch towards 1960s CofD.

              that definitely sounds like it could be interesting and fun

                I wouldn't call them daring so much as unimaginative. But yeah, great story hook

                  Well, for changelings, to be unimaginative is daring (and to be not paranoid is to give up)

                    Gosh. I would love to tie that to my Carthian material in Secrets of the Covenants.
