    replied to Legendary/Epic Changeling
    In an Epic/Legendary core book, one theme I think it should explore is how to play wyrd 10 changelings as pagan gods or divine spirits. I don't just mean that they have cults that worship them, but through their high wyrd and court mantle, are actually able to control/ influence the destiny of the mortal realm to a certain degree. I can see this happening by being bound to certain festivals/pagan holidays.

    For example, Perchta and Holda are associated with Christmas. I can see there being a entitlement made of Monsters, Demons, and Spirits associated with Christmas and can influence...

    I am hoping that a global changeling book will draw heavily from legends from all over the world to look at the hedge, courts, entitlements, True Fae, and even Arcadia from the different regions of the world. I am also hoping that such a scorebook will look a little at globalization and current international politics to show how the different changeling societies are affecting each other.

    I have to admit my spread of different creatures is rather messy The reason I have the different entities in different threads is I want people thinking about the main themes of the thread and not just the creatures. I am afraid that if I put all the creatures on one thread, people would mostly focus on them for either changelings of True Fae.

    I put the legends associated with the entities along with their description, because I hope they inspire ideas for Asian, Hawaiian, and Alaskan courts and entitlements. I am hoping will add their knowledge of the different myths and eventually...

    Maria Makiling is a Philippine diwata (goddess, fairy or forest nymph) associated with Mount Makiling in Laguna Philippines. She is the most widely known diwata in Philippine Mythology, and was venerated in pre-colonial Philippines as a goddess known as Dayang Masalanta or Dian Masalanta who was invoked to stop deluge, storms and earthquakes.

    Maria Makiling is the guardian spirit of the mountain, responsible for protecting its bounty and thus, is also a benefactor for the townspeople who depend on the mountain's resources. In addition to being a guardian of the mountain, some...

    These two would make fun hobgoblins in a Indian/Hindu Changeling setting.
    In Hindu mythology, Uchchaihshravas is a seven headed horse born during the churning of the milk ocean. It is said to be the mount of the god-king of heaven or the demon king, Bali.

    Here is the story about its and the White Elephant Airvata's births:

    Indra, King of Heaven and the gods, keeps the King of Horses, Uchchaihshravas as one of his trusted mounts. Their love for each other is infinite and there is nothing they would not do for one another. Indra is the only “master”...

    Here are two creatures that would make interesting Asian Changelings or Hobgoblins.
    Also known as Tianlu or Bixie, Pixiu is one of the five auspicious animals in ancient Chinese mythology, the other four being the dragon, phoenix, tortoise, and Chinese unicorn. Pixiu is considered a wealth-bringing divine animal with a dragon's head, a horse's body and a unicorn's feet. The animal, capable of flying, looks like a lion and has gray fur.

    Pixiu is fierce and powerful by nature. As such, it is in charge of patrolling duty in the sky to keep demons, ghosts, plagues and diseases...

    Here are two goddesses/spirits that would make interesting wyrd 10 changelings.
    Berchta, also called Perchta, is a goddess of southern Germany and Austria who later became known in folklore as a kind of boogeyman who would frighten children. Modern Heathens look to a variety of sources to understand her as a goddess and so the understandings of her can vary widely.

    In modern folklore Berchta/Perchta is seen as a lesser spirit who punishes miscreants and who has an assortment of fairy beings called Perchten who travel with her. Perchten is also a word used to describe...

    This Monster would make a fun word 10 changeling.
    Black Annis (also known as Black Agnes) is a witch and boogeyman figure in English folklore dating back to the eighteenth-century.

    It is said that she haunts the countryside of Leicestershire, living in a dark cave located somewhere in the Dane Hills, known as "Black Annis' Bower" by locals, with an old oak tree marking the entrance, a tree she often hid in waiting for someone to snatch up.

    She was said to be very tall and horrible, with blue skin, glowing eyes, long, sharp teeth and claw-like...

    Here are some interesting Scottish Fae.
    The name bean-nighe or “washer woman” seems harmless enough but this was one woman no one wanted to meet. A cousin of the banshee in Irish folktales, this creature heralded death. Banshees would scream before a person was about to die. More often than not these people heard the wail and died of fright. In Scotland, similar creatures known as caoineags (‘weepers’) wailed before catastrophe. These beings were usually associated with particular clans in Scotland. For example, members of the MacDonald clan heard their caoineag wailing the night...

    This would make a fun Chinese hobgoblin.
    Qilin

    Like the Chinese dragon, the Qilin is composed of different animals. Over the centuries, however, the depiction of the Qilin has changed. In general, the Qilin is said to have an equine-like body. Thus, the Qilin may have the body of a deer, or an ox, or a horse. The body of the Qilin is also covered with the scales of a fish, and is often enveloped in fire. As for its head, it is quite similar to the Chinese dragon, yet, even this feature has its variations over time. Some Qilin, for example, have been depicted with a single...

    Here are two crypts that would make fun True Fae.
    The Ayia Napa Sea Monster is a cryptid, claimed to inhabit the coast off of Ayia Napa in Cyprus, a popular tourist resort on the Mediterranean. Most sightings occur around Cape Greco (Cavo Greko). It is known by the local fishermen as “To Filiko Teras”,which translates as “The Friendly Monster”. There have been no reports of it causing any harm, although it has been reported at times to rip and drag away fishing nets. There have been countless sightings of the “Creature from the Depths”, with some local newspapers calling the...

    Here's an interesting creature.
    The Flatwoods Monster (also known as the Braxton County Monster or Frametown Monster) is a cryptid sighted in Flatwoods, West Virginia and Frametown, West Virginia.

    The entity was initially reported as being about 10 feet tall and 4 feet wide. It appeared to be some sort of robotic suit or spacecraft rather than an organic being. It had a 'cowl' in the shape of an ace of spades behind a red round head. Set in the head were two eyes, described as 'portholes', glowing green-orange and the size of half-dollars.The 'body' was a metallic armored...

    Another thing that would be interesting to explore with a changeling who is older than 100 years old is old values clashing with modern values. I believe that while our opinions change, our core values tend to be concrete by our mid twenties. Up until recently in human history (around 1950 I believe) people did not enjoy the material wealth we do today, death by violence and disease was common place, marriages were arranged for material benefits, and many people lived in a religious fog. I believe that changelings who grew up before the nineteen forties would clash with our modern values and...

    What are some of your core sources? I am curious to learn more about your background and research. I enjoy exploring several different sources on a subject even if they contradict each other. My professors at college would metaphorically beat each other bloody over views on a curriculum subject

    Note: To justify the existence of Robin Hood, Manchester cites a grave marker.

    Also, thank you for complementing my ideas.

    I think it is unfair to call someone a mediocre scholar, because their view does not match your own. scholarly research is full of historians contracting each others views (whether the black death was really bubonic plague, whether Shakespeare existed, or what led to the events of the Salem witch trials are just some examples). Also you just state one source to vindicate your position.

    I am interested in learning more about your research and background on this subject. However you will need to give more background before I am convinced of your position....

    As wyrd 10 changelings can potentially live forever, I can see several of them still being alive, including King Arthur, Merlin,Robin Heud, Snow White, plus Hansel and Gretel.

    Along with seeing what these legendary Changelings might have to say about their legends , I think the ideal meeting the reality. I can see their being an entitlement representing the vision of Robin Hood and his Merry Men being ideal heroes, when they were nothing more than cut throats (Yeah, I know. I am beating this into the ground). In my head, I envision word 10 Changeling Robin Heud having a character...

    I found an old legend that, although focusing on a ghost like character, could easily be reinterpreted as a Changeling. I also think he would make an interesting word 10 changeling though I can see people stating he would make a better huntsman.

    Herne the Hunter ‘Herne’ was one of the keepers of the ‘Forest of Windsor’ in the reign of ‘King Richard II’ and known for his great hunting and woodcraft skills. Whilst King Richard favoured Herne his fellow hunters it is said hated him and plotted to cause Herne’s downfall. One day the royal party were out on a hunt the king was nearly...

    In my discussions about doing an Epic Changeling rulebook, I have emphasized my interest in exploring the dark origins/realities behind some of our favorite fairy tales (​Note: I do hope that a scorebook is done, exploring some of the least well known and creepy fairy tales from around the world. I just think they should be done in an international Changeling book). One of of our favorite folk heroes I is explored is Robin Hood, who was a wellborn cutthroat rather than a heroic figure who gave to the poor.

    One of the ways I hope Onyx Path explores the true story of Robin Hood is...
