  • Werewolf is a game of threes — Wyrm, Weaver, and Wyld; human, wolf, and metis; etc. Changeling is a game of dualities — glamour vs banality, Tuathan vs Fomorian, seelie vs unseelie, etc. Trying to force one game's cosmology on the other will result in imperfect fits at best.

  • From a Changeling: The Dreaming perspective, what's a wyrm? A dragon? Yeah, we got lots of these, went riding on one yesterday.

    More seriously to your original question, a Dauntain running around would be bad news for any changeling. Likewise, it probably wouldn't be a good idea for the Kithain to let Thallain go unchecked. Changeling doesn't have a lot of kill on sight enemies though. Killing a creature of dream furthers the cause of Banality. A changeling must weigh the consequences of extinguishing Glamour from the world against the harm those creatures might cause by existing...

    Oh sure, glamour gained through ravaging is glamour. It can be used in all the ways changelings use glamour. It's just a mildly banal way to acquire it. New glamour isn't generated; existing glamour is ripped from a person. Overall, gathering glamour through ravaging diminishes the total glamour in the world.

    I'd rather save my thoughts on musing thresholds for now. I'd like to work on future Changeling books. If I get a chance to expand on musing thresholds, the book might require something different than what I'd do right at this moment 😉

    So my personal thought on the matter is that the stuff that tended to be labeled as dark glamour in 2nd edition is just glamour - positive and negative emotions both encompass the human condition, so either can be mused equally.

    In my mind, dark glamour is what results when people retreat from higher order thoughts and emotions, instead embracing primal drives and instincts.

    Of course, the dividing line between the two isn't terribly clear. Humans are just another kind of animal, after all, but it's that which is uniquely human that separates Tuatha from Fomorian and,...

  • I had a fox pooka Ailil npc in a chronicle I ran once. She was a master at using the image of the sweet, innocent pooka to manipulate members of the Seelie Court and uncovering their secrets.

    More recently, I had a peacock pooka ladies man npc I set up to be the rival of the Fiona sidhe pc (who fancied himself god's gift to women). The pooka wasn't a member of any house, but I always figured that if they ever got past their rivalry, they would have made a terrifying pair of Fiona fops. They never did.

    In the same chronicle, I had a raven pooka as the right hand of an...

    Yeah, Book of Glamour was going to update Changeling's magic system to revised standards without actually being a revised edition, kind of like how the Players Guide overhauled first edition's magic system.

    Keys to the Kingdom was going to Changeling's Year of the Scarab tie in. It was going to explore the Middle East from a changeling perspective and also be a major chronicle book in which the players retrieve the Triumph Casque of Sorrows. The opening fiction for it can be found at https://drive.google.com/open?id=0By...A2ZDk1ZDY4M2M4

  • Dark glamour is a plot device. There aren't any rules around it in the C20 core. The Thallain aren't really intended as player characters. There's certainly enough rules so folks could play them if they really want, but it would be about the equivalent of playing a Black Spiral Dancer or a Nephandi as a PC. They'd gain Glamour in generally the same way as the Kithain, only instead of being inspiring, they'd be horrifying....

    Perhaps it's Caliburn and it chose this newly chrysalized autumn sidhe childling to be the High Queen of the fae. The only problem is there's this guy over in Concordia named High King David who wields a sword he calls Caliburn, and although he's been a recluse for the past several years, he's not happy with this turn of events.

  • Awhile still probably. According to the update, the files just got sent to the printer. That means the cover still needs to be created, pages printed and gilded, and then finally all bound together. Gilding alone is a multi-month process going by what happened with previous deluxe editions....
