    started a topic A Demon went down to Georgia

    A Demon went down to Georgia

    So let's say a demon goes down to Georgia looking for a soul pack to seal. He meets a fiddle player named Johnny whose willing to make that deal. They arrange a contest in which Johnny will win a fiddle of gold if he plays his fiddle better than the demon. If he loses, the demon gets a new cover.

    Now! Brainstorm with me how we can transform this classic song into an actual pact. The rule as written don't really jump out at me with ways to make bets or games out of the traditional deal. But contests and competitions do pop up in deals with the devil, so I'd like to hear some thoughts...

    A song played on a harp of spider silk, a jar of liquid void, and the last breath of a man dead of heartbreak. Or whatever else the merchant has a need of at the time....

    .....there was a point in time when it wasn't this? I would have described the Hedge as this since its inception back in the 1e version of the game....

    Are Trods the same thing as dream roads? Are Trods even still a thing in 2nd edition?

  • To me the only important part is that the idea is something that CAN be explored by the ST, not something which NEEDS to be explored. Some people, often victims of real life trauma, complained that the Changeling game offered the stages of grief minus actual recovery as their society with the implication that there is no getting over tragedy or turning your life around. People were understandably upset by that idea and became turned off by changeling as a result. So its important to emphasize that Changeling has a lot to offer for a lot of people, and that there's plenty of interesting stories...

    replied to Newbie Question
    I would start with a basic setting question- what is about this location that has attracted the attention of 8 or more Arisen? Is there a major source of Sekhem? An occult artifact? A particularly powerful cult? Is there a Nome in the area? I would check out Cursed Necropolis: DC. It might be helpful in coming up with your own ideas by looking at how the core game populated its signature city....

  • And for my part, this write up makes me tentatively more excited for 2e. This FEELS like the game I fell in love with. If all of the Courts are written up this way, with these sections modestly devoted to what they do day to day in the Freehold and while in power, then hells yeah I'm in. I think the homebrew Court creation system is fine for the STs feeling up for it, but I don't have the time or energy and as a player I'd be wary that the ST wouldn't make anything as fun to play as the Seasons or similar systems....

    I dunno about all that. The more I've thought about it, the more I think as a GM I'd allow the conjuring but present a REACTION from the Hedge. I mean, the Hedge has rules, but unlike some places its rules can and often are broken. The Hedge deliberately doesn't make them ironclad. There are just consequences. You can step off the path if you want, and the Thorns will prick you. I think the Hedge might be better represented as not denying a powerful Mage the opportunity to enact his rule breaking magic. I think the Hedge will just see that he regrets it. Not sure how that plays out in rules, but...

    So a Master/Messiah's manifesto is going to be rife with ciphers and double meanings and hidden scripts and probably has several rival factions interpreting the meanings....

    Nick, you mind toning it down a bit? Your making the rest of us less awesome people look bad.

    Thinking about it, if we step back from the Messiah-as-Jesus angle a second...why aren't they more common? I mean...the quest for Hell is basically a quest for salvation, right? You'd think that a Messiah like figure, one that claims to know the way to Hell, would have popped up all over Demon history. Not necessarily in the Christ-like way, but history is full of Confuciuses and Buddhas and Marxes and so on. Why not Demon history too? You'd think the Agendas would be rife with individual...

    "Knowing that changeling freeholds and Courts exist is not the same as knowing the affiliations of a specific changeling, the Informed Condition does not represent specific concrete information in itself, and "the smallest amount of research" doesn't help when the species' default specialty Safe Place makes finding out about its residents harder to accomplish."

    Missed this detail in second edition. Does whatever this penalty is apply to mundane efforts to find them as well? I was aware the true fae had challenges to go through, but not everyone else...

    Well, what does a Messiah do if not sacrifice for the cause? So, something willing to die to accomplish a very dramatic end. Shuttng down the Machine, Ascend to something that rivals or exceeds it, opener of a gate to the Land Beyond Gears, whatever.

    Shrug. Not really disputing whether or not a Mage CAN create a hedge gate. Just where and when. And most of all, how easy it should be under a given circumstance. I mean, even on Earth magic gets harder depending on how obvious and how many witnesses there are. The Hedge cares nothing for who sees you. But it has RULES, sir! One does not just LEAVE before their part is played! Turning back at the threshold is fine, of course, plenty of sisters and brothers of the poor hero have done that. No harm, no foul. But for those who choose to go further in its not proper at all. They've become COMMITTED....

    "All right, all right. Enough of the screaming. 'Oh, there's a hobgoblin in my room! Help! Help!' If I wanted to eat your face, I'd've done it when you slept, you shrill voiced idiot. So no more of that! What I need you to do now is take this vile thing you just left to plague us! Take it and leave us in peace? Do you know what this did? DO YOU?
