  • I'd say no; they're more akin to natural weapons. Elemental Weapon is for crafted weapons, such as swords, bows and bludgeons.

    Hmm, it's an idea, but by that point you're encroaching on what Discreet Summons can do with an easier die roll. Granted, we could make it a bit more flexible and make it any gun that they've touched in the last 24 hours along with the unique ammunition. Heck, the gun could itself be stylized to fit in with their mien to those who can see past it, making it clear that the weapon isn't normal.

    Thanks; if your kith gets taken in for an official one, I may change the name to Soul Shooter, as the Trickery implies a Changeling uses part of herself for her weapon. Best of luck.

    Hmmm, when using Firearms to shoot a moving target is an interesting idea, or possibly for shooting a distant one. I had thought that perhaps when a Deadeye uses the Aim option, since that is a risk/reward scenario, but I'm not sure.

    As for the Trickery, it's more to allow a Changeling both to leave a calling card and options...

    I was thinking that, if I were to ever do a campaign, I'd add in a Hedge Demon - basically an Angel that managed, through one way or another, to get into the Hedge and was designed to figure it out. It does...but the act of doing so causes it to fall, and the knowledge it has and its very location warp it into something part fae. It would have access to both Contracts and Exploits, using Glamour instead of Aether, though Embeds would be beyond its capability due to how warped its hardware is; its own variant of Rip The Gates would allow it to travel to and from the Hedge easily. Like normal Demons...

    Another post from me, but this is a cool cover song for the opening of the anime "Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni"; the tone sounds like it'd be good for the perspective of a Gentry finding and playing with their Changelings...in a realm of trees, rain that turns to blood and cicadas, in a game where the Changelings must not be found by their keeper who can tear apart the darkness itself.

    I love it.

    Edit: Another cover of a Japanese song from LittleJayneycakes, this one is of "Paper Moon"...

  • There can be multiple sharpshooter kiths - there's bound to be overlap, or regional varients on various kiths, just as there are repeats. I just like the idea of a Changeling being able to get into a firefight, have an empty gun, and then wait for their target to casually walk up to them only for the Changeling to use their Kith blessing and then shoot the surprised target...or simply for more dakka without having to reload casually....

  • Not so much a conversion, but I had an idea for a Kith known as a Deadeye - they're basically sharpshooters among Changelings, designed to always be armed and dangerous even with an empty gun. I don't know what to make for their Kith Blessing though. Their Trickery is below:

    A Bullet With Your Name On It: A Deadeye's gun is always loaded. By spending a Glamour and successfully rolling Presence + Firearms, any gun a Deadeye is holding is instantly loaded with ammunition appropriate for its type. Even if the firearm is missing its magazine, it is considered loaded to its maximum capacity....

  • I can see Venom being done as a Changeling, or any of the symbiotes really, specifically a Beast Mirrorskin. Mirrorskins are able to change their features and don't take penalties for not having proper kit for disguises, just as the symbiote can become clothing and basically disguise its host's features, and among the Beast's affinity contracts is Boon of the Scuttling Spider, allowing a Changeling to move on any surface that could support them, with both Seeming bonuses working for it. Add in other contracts for shapeshifting, increased strength and the weapon creation and bang, symbiote....

  • Doesn't a Changeling appear as her true self while in a dream anyways, be it in her own dreams or of those she visits?

  • Should Good Time Management work on processes like gadget creation, or on Exploits like Raise Dead? There's nothing that says it can't in the wording, but the previous version from the Reliquary supplement does, so I'm wondering.

  • If a Changeling could do that, what would be the danger of being trapped in iron, especially if they were a Darkling and hid in the shadows, or used any number of other contracts to simply slip through the walls or become invisible?...

    replied to GMing Demon: What NOT to do?
    Upon reflection of the games I've been in, I have another bit of advice. If you have starting Demons who have barely bought anything with experiences, don't set them up with something that is out of their range when they seize upon an opportunity to infiltrate Infrastructure. Sure, Infrastructure isn't usually that easy to hack into, but if they get in at least make sure they can actually do something about it or at least learn from it. If you don't, you're going to leave them frustrated and having left evidence of their infiltration, meaning that the next chance they get (should they get one)...

  • I rather like how diplomatic both sides were. Neither the Vampires nor the Changelings were too forthcoming yet they explained some of the general facts about their respective sides; they were friendly but not overtly so; they established they have their own masquerades but also that their respective feedings weren't lethal. It was a good first meeting (well, discussion) of the respective factions.

    Also, I've been looking back at the previous posts here, somewhere near the start. It's really surprising not only at how things changed, but at how long certain elements have been in the...

  • Oh! I misread their post as being that a Fae Touched could only see past the Mask of the Changeling they were linked to. My bad.

    But in regards to a Fae Touched seeing past a particular Fetch's Mask, I don't think that would be the case. The fluff we've gotten on how a Fae Touched realizes the person they're with isn't right looks more akin to them recognising flaws more than anything else. The scent of mud even when clean, behavior or memory discrepancies, stuff that doesn't add up. From what I understand, the process isn't really seeing past the Mask, more they were perceptive of...

  • That is true; I had meant that Fae Touched can see through a Changeling's Mask, basically seeing what they can see, but my wording was rather vague.

    The main reason I see a Fae Touched being able to see past the Mask is...well, if not, what's the big problem with keeping them out of Fae dealings? If they could only see past one Changeling's Mask, one who is typically in Arcadia, then all Changelings have to deal with is a somewhat insane person with contracts and minor Fae powers a Fae Touched couldn't hope to master without tutelage from a Changeling, whom they can't identify anymore...

  • 1: Not addressed in the released materials as of yet, but I could swear that Rose has discussed the topic before and there being a desire to not exclude players from being parents post-durance.

    2: Similarly, no news on this topic as of yet.

    3: A Changeling can spend a glamour to see the Mask for a few seconds, if I remember right from the Glamour section. This includes the Mask of any other Changelings.

    4: Yes, they do, but they can strengthen their Mask for the scene by paying a Glamour so nobody can see their Mien, though this leave their shadow reflecting...

  • I'd rule it that switching Covers simply means that the person isn't anywhere in the world, but the Cover/person themselves exist. If the cover is destroyed, any association with that cover is also gone. Switching a cover will not remove a person's house, dog or car from existence, even if they're currently with/within that thing associated with them.

  • Thanks Satchel, that all does make sense. I'd say a Changeling in car form could still move slowly, since cars can be moved so long as the brakes aren't on, but yeah, unless driven by another person they'd not be making any high speed chases.

    Still, this means I can have a Changeling buddy-cop duo, one of them the cruiser and the other the driver. ...
