    The whole premise of the game is that the fae are dying. Any new Kithain, even a single individual, are a Big Deal.

    You can, of course, run your own chronicle however you wish, but from my point of view, that changes one of the fundamentals of the game....

    Take that Inanimae! Your kitchens will be forever cursed to chaos and disorganization since you're barred from pantries!

  • I can't remember exactly what was decided about Glamour costs. I do remember you need to spend a Glamour point for each Realm you want to "cheat." If you only have Fae 1 but need Fae 5, that would require a Glamour point.

    As for adding Realms, I want to say you only spend Glamour to add a modifier Realm - Scene or Time. I'm not sure though. When spending Glamour on Realms you don't have was added, spending Glamour to combine Realms may have been dropped entirely. Holden and Jonsan could answer this one better.

    If DA: Fae is accepted as the history of C:tD, then yeah, sprites were the the main way First Born reproduced. I'd imagine it's something that's been exceedingly rare since the Shattering though.

    Possible? Yeah, the wolpertinger were written the way they are specifically to show it's possible.

    Easy or common? Not at all. The wolpertinger came into being as Kithain under extraordinary circumstances at a price that even they can't remember. A new Kithain soul being created is sort of thing that drives an entire chronicle....

    It did. I'm still not happy with it though. I ought to revisit it now that I'm finished with my part of Freeholds.

    Edit to add: here's the thread - http://forum.theonyxpath.com/forum/m...adia-ccg-kiths

  • I'd probably go the opposite route. Chimera are slaves to the dream that birthed them. Kithain are the keepers of the Dreaming. Chimerical wolpertinger hide in the wilderness, build nests, and devour balefires because that's just what they do. Kithain wolpertinger can see the ramifications of what all that entails and may choose to do something different....

  • I didn't want to stray too far from what the Legacies originally were. I did soften the Unseelie Legacies a bit from 2E so they're not as unambiguously evil. I also introduced a rule that lets you use your secondary Legacy to ignore the Ban from your primary one. The idea is to reinforce the notion that a changeling isn't complete without both her Seelie and Unseelie halves.

    I made a couple of posts in another thread talking about it more starting here: http://forum.theonyxpath.com/forum/m...16#post1090416

  • So one of the goals when I was writing the Courts in C20 was to make sure the Seelie aren't universally squeaky clean good guys and the Unseelie aren't 100% unrepentant villains.

    The approach I tried to take was that they're each two halves of a whole, and that neither they nor the Dreaming could survive without both despite being opposites. Like day and night, nothing can grow without sunlight, but if the night were somehow eliminated, the world quickly become a scorched and barren wasteland. Evening are necessary to erase the heat of the day and for rejuvination, but if the sun...

  • Any arcadian sidhe can undergo the Changeling Way to become an autumn sidhe if they choose. The ratio of arcadian to autumn sidhe is vague. You can fine tune the number to whatever works best for your chronicle.

    I'm the same way. I don't think I've run any game exactly as written, and I doubt I ever will (including C20 which I helped write!).

    The sidhe thing is such a minor item overall in C20, it's simple to modify to make it more palatable. I even offered an alternate take earlier in the thread that makes most sidhe heroic without contradicting C20's state of the world....

  • It's a range of tones. Is your chronicle a low budget but incredibly fun urban fantasy TV show along the lines of Lost Girl? Or is your chronicle a spared no expense CG heavy blockbuster like Oz the Great and Powerful? Both are awesome, but which you prefer is up to you

  • There is a more fantasy version of all the Kithain on pages 48-49. It's done by the same person who did the Thallain illustrations.

    Edit to add: AND! It has the greatest illustration in the whole book — Pinkie Pie the Party Piskie!

    I need to reread the relevant sections to remember what made the final cut and what didn't, but I don't think it's the majority of sidhe who've closed their doors. The impression I have (which, admittedly, could be based on a hodgepodge of different drafts) is that it's the noble equivalent of the 1% - the ones even other nobles look at and say, "that's a lot of glamour." In practice it's only a handful of individuals, but because they have such a stranglehold on Glamour, their influence is far greater than their numbers.

    Of those individuals, it might not be entirely due...

    If it helps, don't forget that the secondary Legacy influences the primary one. My thought is that Legacies can go fairly extreme on their own, but the opposite court Legacy acts as a moderating influence. Normally breaking the Ban on a primary Legacy costs Willpower, but I added a rule that lets you break the Ban for free as long as you can justify it using your secondary Legacy....

    The Legacies were literally the first thing I wrote for C20. I was still iffy about going too far in changing things. I tried to massage the Unseelie ones into being more individualistic as opposed to flat out evil. I think I mostly succeeded compared to their second edition write-ups, but I can see how their descriptions might not have changed enough for some folks.
