  • Well now, THAT is a complicated question.

    True Love in the sense of Storytelling should be a beautiful and terrible thing. And while love and happiness can indeed happen many times, True Love is the kind of thing you never recover from. If lost, at best it should bring a happy ache and at worst terrible pain and hurt. This is especially true for beings touched by the Dreaming.

    In my own life, I have truly loved more than once. Some were great mistakes that hurt more than they brought joy. One seemed glorious and full of so much hoping and wonder that I thought would...

  • The major problem I have with the Swan Maiden is the THREE frailties that they are saddled with. A changeling of this kith would lead a short, tragic existence, though I suppose that is the point.

    The Swan Maidens/Princes are a neat story to tap into, but I prefer this sort of thing to be the product of a curse (The Magic Swan Geese, The Seven Ravens, The Twelve Wild Ducks, Udea and her Seven Brothers, The Wild Swans, The Twelve Brothers, etc) rather than a kith. And the relational/sex magic of the kith could be a type of musing, revelry or ravaging that any kith could use, though...

    NOCKER GADGET CREATION

    For use with the Nocker Birthright, I have made the following simple system. Though I applaud creative players efforts, sometimes its good to have a fall back system so as not to bog down gameplay.


    NOCKER GADGET CREATION
    For the making of those temporary and temperamental Nocker gadgets, I prefer that the player come up with ideas first and leave a hard system for more permanent chimerical gadgets and crafter treasures. Typically, Nocker gadgeteering will require suitable materials and an “80’s style montage as the chimerical device is constructed. However, for simplicities...

  • Absolutely. And just because they are monsters, does not mean they don't care for their children. The Addams family were a loving family, but were also grave robbers, cannibals and torturers. Of course, there would also be families straight out of a nightmare.

    As a general rule, I would treat Thallain families as clannish, with changeling and kinain as the favored members. Mortal kinfolk of these families would likely be the whipping boys and punching bags of the family, though they might love "mummy" with fanatical devotion. In my home campaign, Thallain and Kithain families...

    And a very good interview too! The writer is clearly inspired by the book. Congratulations!...

  • Good points.

    Dreamers are limited in access to Glamour, being dependent on the fae, but there are options. I would say that they certainly could use dross to activate bestowments, treasures or lower the difficulties of Numina (as per Mana). I would allow Dreamers to be able to draw glamour from Dross, by destroying the trinket.

    They can be Mused, Ravaged and Rhapsodied, though they will likely be aware of what is happening. I would say that they could resist being Ravaged with a Willpower roll (diff = attackers Banality), or possibly using his own Banality to add to...

  • NEW BACKGROUND


    NATURAL FOUNT (Background)
    You have a particular talent for imbuing items with glamour, turning them into dross (see Dross, p. 320). This Dross takes the form of items that a person can hold in a closed hand, but it typically something that the Dreamer has made or has otherwise focused a great deal of energy on. This can be crystals, beads, polymer clay sculptures, scrimshaw carvings, jewelry or even cookies or other items. Dreamers with this background must have dots in a related Craft or Hobby Talent ability.
    Characters with this background can...

    Dreamer Player Characters

    Been pondering mortal characters for Changeling the Dreaming who are not Kinain, but people who have gotten a taste of the Dreaming (and want more). Such Dreamers could be great allies or even enemies, depending on their nature and experiences. The final version, as well as additional material will be posted at my patreon. But this is where I am so far.


    DREAMER CHARACTERS
    Though Dreamers are the catch-all term for Mortals in Changeling society, there are definitely certain individuals who break the mold of typical mortals. These wondrous persons have a connection to...

    Do you mean Ghost in the Machine? What clause are you referring to?

    Personally, I would treat this as the 3 dot Wraith Inhabit power Gremlinize. Allowing only minor, clumsy effects, such as turning a machine on or off, turning pages, locking doors, and the like. Use of Manipulation + Computer, Drive, Science or other Ability for more complex uses of the device....

    Yes, opposite ends. All part of a messy, argumentative family. Cogs, Krofted Inanimae (especially Manikins) and Lycian chimera. These along with Mechorgs could make for a potent force if they organized themselves.

    LOVE that dino dream!

    A Cog tied to "movie magic" and animatronics would be cool. And dinosaur Lycian chimera would work as well (Beast/Quixotic or Oppidian).

    But a dinosaur Cog? That is a great idea! I would make use the "Animalistic Favor" Merit on pages 187 and 185 as well as Murderous Mien and Prehensile Tongue/Tail to make...

    For my tastes, I would treat them as Manikins as far as the Inanimae are concerned. Though from a different branch of the dream family....

    I would say that is when the Storyteller gets to cackle maniacally.

    Depending on the circumstances, it might cause a terrible explosion that would kill or even unmake the PC's, or drop them into some Nightmare realm. This explosion would likely rip a hole into the nightmare realms and sending all manner of horrible entities loose on the Autumn world.

    Very few things are actually made of cold iron, with most things we think of as being made of iron actually being alloys. Alloys do not have the effect of cold iron on changelings or the Dreaming....

  • MANGANI (ORIGIN)

    The Mangani (aka Alma, Squatch) are a species of higher apes that can be found around the world where they are traditionally associated with “Hairy Men” in local traditions. These creatures greatly resemble gorillas, but are completely bipedal and are as intelligent as a human. Mangani have a very physical society, appreciating muscle and endurance over intellectual pursuits. This has led them to jobs in which they can use their great strength, such as laborers, construction, soldiering, law enforcement and (unfortunately) crime. The largest populations of Mangani...

    replied to Kinain Questions
    An interesting thought.

    I actually use Lycian type creatures quite a bit, and have done so for years. In my home campaign personifications of natural and man-made forces objects and creatures are more numerous than Kithain. Though they were usually NPC's, I used a mix of the Bygone Bestiary and Changeling revised chimera rules for those players interested in playing chimera.

    But as for Animal kinain and mythic beasts, I would say that Animal Lycians of the appropriate type might be the progenitor of animal kinain bloodlines. I could see a LOLcat fathering a bizarre feline...

  • I have NOT seen it! But I will certainly look into it. Thank you.

    Most of the superhero/villain types of the Heroic Age setting will be non-powered Talents. Of course with the right gifts, gadgets and focus, this can get pretty weird pretty quick....
