  • Ask a Simple Question, Get a Simple Answer: Changeling Edition

    Saw that this is one of the few boards that didn't have one of these. And since Changeling is only rivaled by Mage in the "you will encounter loopholes, fringe circumstances and weirdness" category, I'm thinking it could definitely use one of these.

    I'll probably be asking more questions than I ever get the knowledge to answer, personally, but there are a lot of smart, informed people on this board who can contribute, like ArcaneArts , Charlaquin, White Oak Dragon, etc.

    So, to start off the board, here's my first question.

    A mortal in the Hedge is in a bad way, but what happens to them if a Changeling with a Mien that is easily hideable even when exposed follows them through a hedge gate right into their Hollow? Depending on the Hollow, could they not even realize they're somewhere magical? Or does the Hedge call to them still?

    Well anyway, here's a question that came to mind recently:

    The Wizened Seeming Curse causes a Clarity attack if a Hatter is caught off-guard by an "unpleasant surprise," which is a little more open-ended than the others, and I'm wondering how other people have interpreted this in their own games?

    (On a side-note, I'm now realizing that there are interesting similarities between the Curses of Seemings who share an Attribute category.)

    If you read the Goblin Market book you’ll see you can sell slaves at the Goblin Market.

    When its Goblin trading that stuff would be real. You dont have to go to an Arcadian realm and pretend. Goblins literally trade in bottled memories, solidified feelings, and the like.

    Um…

    …I can imagine they'd be worth quite a lot. On the other hand, the local Changelings will not be happy with you selling people to the Fae.

    Prices at the Goblin Market are never just numbers ("you'll get ¤18.25 for this"), though. The real question is, what do you want in return?

    I imagine first you'd want to get a letter of marque. OOC, that's where privateers came from: a letter of marque is a contract with the government that says "this person can go out and basically be a pirate, and as long as they don't attack our ships, they're under our protection". So in the world of Changeling, I imagine a similar arrangement with the Gentry: "I'll supply you with new Changelings in exchange for my own safety".

    But after that…when you're working for them, the sky's the limit. There's no telling what any individual Gentry might desire, but if you can figure it out and offer them that, you can have pretty much anything you'd ever want. Want to have all memories and effects of your Durance erased, continue your life with your family from the moment before you were taken, live out a pleasant human lifespan and die surrounded by your loved ones? The Gentry can make it happen. It might not be "real", it might all be a fantastic Arcadian dream, but if you can't tell the difference, does it really matter?

    (And after that dream ends, when you realize you're back in Arcadia under the control of the True Fae again…well, you should have read the fine print.)
