  • Imagery for the Hedge

    Hey guys!

    I'm running a campaign soon for a bunch of players completely new to the Changeling the Lost setting. Now, this game is one of my absolute favourites in all the world, and I like the group, so I've gone all out; to start, I'm making two short trailers for the game so they can get a feel for it. One is for the mortal world, and that was pretty easy to edit together. I'm now putting together another one for Arcadia, the Gentry, the Hedge, and the courts of the Lost- the world behind the Mask, basically.

    I have a load of good imagery for the stuff that happens on this side of the Hedge, but I'm struggling to get anything for stuff IN the hedge. Hence this post. I'd like recommendations of film and TV shows which have scenes set in locations that look like the Hedge. So far I've got Mirrormask, American Gods, the Meanwhile City sections of Franklyn, Labyrinth and The Witch. I'm kind of looking for some psychedelic stuff set in more traditional forests, as that's what I'm short of right now.

    Any help you can offer would be HUGELY appreciated!

    Here are some series you can draw from. Some good, some bad:Additionally the Hedge doesn't always look like a forest, it can be shaped into anything. An example in the book is an abandoned store filled with living mannequins so Dr Who would also be useful for that:

      This scene from Pan's Labyrinth (El labirinto del fauno) springs to mind, though the movie is mostly more of a general Changeling inspiration.

            I swear Dark City can be used as inspiration for literally every CofD game.

                Hey folks! Thank you for your advice. I appreciate it. Figured I'd throw up the finished product, see what you think.

                      Not sure if you're still looking, but Over the Garden Wall has some great Haunted Forest vibes; great for Changeling.
