  • Your right sorry. My only excuse is it was discontinued, so I didn't think it would be a problem.

  • Here is #1 of a discontinued comic, Never Never, that gives ideas on how to portray Peter Pan as evil and ideas for Lost Boy characters.

  • A game that I think can give a good source of inspiration for developing/playing a Lost Boy/Lost Girl as a loyalist is The Witches House. But what I find really interesting about the game is being given someone else’s’ identity. For example, what if you made a deal with your Keeper that they gave you the identity of another person. Not just their appearance, but name, family, home, and personal connections. The Witches House really develops that idea.

    My current Nurarihyon is a fae-touched Japanese boy named Tadashi(Yes, the protagonist of The Great Youkai War). He becomes fae-touched when his best friend and younger sister have been kidnapped by the True Fae Susanoo. He is appraoched by a nine tailed kirsune that informs him, he is the Nurarihyon chosen by fate. He then travels into the Hedge meeting the Changeling daimyo's from around Japan and trying to unite them to help in the war against the True Fae and help rescue his friends. Through his efforts in Arcadia nad the Hedge, he gains the fairest seeming and warrior kith (a reboot of...

    What I envision is that Nurarihyon IS an Eldritch entitlement whose duties resolve settling disputes between the different changeling courts as well as disputes between Japanese mortal society and changeling society. Also, influenced by The Great Youkai War and Nurarihyon no Mago he is the one who leads that armies of the Japanese courts against the True Fae and their allies....

    replied to True Fae characters
    I specifically tried to design True Fae titles, so if the character tried to fight the Gentry head on, the TRUE FAE WOULD STOMP THEM LIKE SUMO BELLY DANCERS. Monster allows you to do +3 aggravated damage with unarmed attacks and Fairest of them all is essentially a jacked up version of Majesty....

    On Youkai wiki, it describes Nurarihyon as "the Supreme Commander of all Monsters," I wanted him to be a changeling rather than a True Fae. I thought of how to incorporate the idea of Nurarihyon being leader of all Monsters, so what I came up with is that he is the Emperor of all Japanese changeling courts. I didn't want him to be evil and the description actually casts him in a positive light. So, drawing on The Great Youkai War, I used the idea of him being the one who leads the Courts of Japan against the True Fae....

    Nurarihyon does appear in Gazu Hyakki Yagyō and Hyakkai Zukan, two books from the Edo period. I do think they describe him Hyakki Yako....

    Unless the changeling is of high wyrd, I don't think they should be able to defeat the True Fae Through brute force. I am in favor of giving them frailties connected to the themes associated with their titles. Think of how the Loser gang from It beat Pennywise.

    For example, the True Fae is described above is supposed to represent the ideals of True Love. However, he is too selfish to truly represent that ideal. So, all the changelings who escape from him have someone they love AND the characters who can beat him are motivated by love. Not necessarily romantic love, but the love...

    My discussions with 21C Hermit and Stupid Loserman are strengthening by belief that we need a 2e corebook that focuses on Asia, with different chapters dedicated to China, Japan, Korea, Vietnam, and especially the Asian American changelings, because Asians are such an important part of globalization and the history of the United States.

    The two types of Asian American changelings I described earlier in the thread are meant to represent the immigrant experience AND the rising influence of Asian nations like China and Japan. Thanks to globalization, the Asian courts are having an easier...

    When I looked up Nurarihyon on Youkai wiki, it stated that he is an actual Youkai from the Okayama prefecture.

    Here is his description on Youkai wiki.

    Nurarihyon (滑瓢, Nurarihyon), or Nūrihyon (ぬうりひょん, Nūrihyon), is a Japanese yōkai said to originate from Wakayama Prefecture. It is also sometimes believed to be descended from the Umibōzu of Okayama Prefecture.

    Nurarihyon is a mysterious and powerful yokai encountered all across Japan. Appearances can be deceiving, and nurarihyon is the perfect illustration of that saying. Overall, he is rather benign-looking,...

    I agree that there would be different dialects for different terms for Gentry, hobgoblins, and loyalists, though I do think certain regions might share terms. The idea of there being a Japanese changeling emperor was inspired by the Japanese imperial emperor and that I wanted the Japanese changeling courts to have their own distinct court system. When I looked up Nurarihyon on Youkai wiki, it stated that he was the ruler of all monsters....

    started a topic True Fae characters

    True Fae characters

    In Changeling: The Lost I would like to see the True Fae/Gentry be given a larger role in the story and allow players to confront/fight their Keeper. While the 2E core book does give the storyteller a general idea of how to do this, I would like a 2E Autumn Nightmares book that gives greater detail on the powers and abilities of the Gentry.

    One way I did this was through drawing on 1e True Fae titles and inspiration from Pennywise/It from the Stephen King novel. The idea is that Titles are manifestations of human fairytales, folklore, mythology, and superstitions. However, 21C Hermit...

    When Japan was building its alphabet, it drew heavily on Chinese characters and China was the source of Buddhism in Japan. So some of the terms could have from the, though I DO agree most of the changeling courts would have their own local dialects and terms.

    In Japan for example,

    Youkai is a general term for Faerie creatures including changelings, hobgoblins and True Fae.

    Mazoku Japanese term for Gentry/True Fae.

    Nurarihyon: Emperor of the Japanese courts.

    Hyakki Yako(night parade of one hundred demons) when Nurarihyon leads the...

    True, though I do think the terms would be common in China, because of the spread of Buddhism. Do you guys have any suggestions?...

    It makes sense to me that the Changelings of Asia would have different terms for the True Fae and their servants...

    Terms I am considering are Asura for the Gentry/True Fae, Rakshasa for hobgoblins, and Akuma for loyalists(Yes, I am totally ripping off Kindred of the East and Exalted).

    I feel we are kind of getting off track with the discussion on this thread, as I was hoping to share ideas for changeling chronicles that focused on Asia or Asian characters.

    Being a fan of Japanese folklore, especially that which focuses on the youkai, I wanted to introduce a concept that would allow the story teller to introduce and explore the many different youkai of legend. Also, influenced by Takashi Miike’s “The Great Youkai War” I also wanted to introduce the themes of the chosen one, and the forces of good confronting the great forces of evil. One manga I really enjoyed...

    Um, I think it fits better with changelings. I haven't played the Beast game, but my understanding is Beasts are humans who had their souls eaten and replaced by Monsters. Though I did play with the idea of True Fae being Beasts/Primordials who learned to manifest their full forms and abilities by drawing on human fairytales, folklore, even worship....

    More thoughts, there are two types of Asian American Changelings..

    Eastern Court Changelings: These are changelings of the Eastern Courts/ Asia who immigrated to the United States for some of the following reasons.
    1. They are following their mortal families.
    2. They are fleeing their Eastern Keeper.
    3. They want to expand the power and influence of their courts.
    The Eastern Court changelings have discovered that with the growing Asian communities/districts in the West(China Towns, Japan Towns, Little Saigon's) Asian changelings can use the Eastern Hedge to...
