  • Britannia, Wild West, and the Wonders of the World

    King Authur's Brittania, the Wild West, and the Wonders of the World are the ones Changeling got.

    Discussing and speculating on these settings and what new they could provide could have some value.
    Probably good to mention gamelines we are going to share them with:
    Arthurian Britain: with Vampires and Hunters
    Seven Wonders: With Prometheans
    Wild West: With Mages.

          Can easily see an Entitlement of the Gunslinger. And goblins a plenty with all the various weird local beasties and mythological beings.

            I had pitches Mythic Greece as a Changeling/Beast setting a while back. The Olympians are just as fickle as any True Fae, and transform so many people (Ariadne, Medusa, plenty others) that it seemed a ready option. Maybe the Lost Pantheon get an updaye here?

              I would love it if the Lost Pantheon got an update here.

                Such as what?
                I've never understood any of the appeal with the Wild West, so if you are in love with it.. could you please try to make me see the wonders?

                  It's basically semi-modern fantasy. You have untamed wilds and a general sense of lawlessness, similar to the frontier of a fantasy world, but you also have more modern sensibilities, with guns and trains. This is probably the big link to mage and changeling, which are heavily based in fantasy. Traditionally Wild West movies brought further fantasy sensibilities, with 'cowboys' and marshalls acting like idealized versions of knights and samurai (see: the Magnificent Seven) and other films debunking the flowery moral depictions, giving you a more morally gray version of the same world (see Spaghetti Westerns).

                  I'm pretty sure the idea of Wild West as an era wasn't originally put forth by the developers, though they obviously decided to take it. It's popped up as an idea since Dark Eras 1 was announced.

                    It also gave us the Oregon Trail. The Bound ought to know the importance of fording a river.

                      Pretty much what they said above. And more of an emphasis on indigenous culture mythlore as well.
