  • Exactly! Likewise, if the Anchor is one of those wooden console TVs from the 70's and 80's, do you have a mannikin, solimond, or kubara? Which Empire does the Inanimae belong to? I'd say the answer ultimately comes down to what sort of character concept the players has in mind.

    I'd also say we're straying pretty far from the actual topic ...

  • Yeah, but by the nature of the phyla, the Empire of Flickers is going to be limited to certain ones. Mannikins and solimonds are probably the vast majority, if not the exclusive members of, the empire with the fewest Inanimae.

    As for if there will ever be more word count devoted to Flickers, only time will tell. I have no inside information, but my guess is that Player's Guide sales numbers will determine if we get any more source books.

  • It might help to think of the Empire of Flickers as the Inanimae faction that is actively trying to evolve the Inanimae for the modern Dreaming. They're probably the ones most actively trying to synthesize the Inanimae dream and the Lycian dream so that when destiny eventually strikes, the Inanimae can thrive instead of being displaced.




    They can take the Changeling Companion background, which implies that they're a changeling's Chimerical Companion. I'm pretty sure the Views from Without section also talks a bit about Kithain, Inanimae, and Thallain having Lycian...

  • Inanimae are, on the whole, classic elementals. Lycians are elementals of the Anthropocene.

    Inanimae and Lycians have a certain amount of overlap — they're both fundamentally stories about living objects. The Inanimae themselves see enough similarities to believe the Lycians are new dream destined to usurp their place in the Dreaming someday. From an in-game perspective, the biggest difference between them is that the Inanimae are immortal faerie souls inhabiting an object to protect themselves against Banality while Lycians are simply an inanimate object that's accumulated enough...

  • Lycian Cut Material [C20 Player's Guide]

    I accidentally over wrote the Lycian section of the C20 Player's Guide. Ruby's write-up and a sidebar describing inspirational material for the Lycians were cut to bring the section to its correct word count. I now have them posted on the Storyteller's Vault as a small ebook called Fragments of the Lycian Dream. It's free to download, but tips are greatly appreciated:

  • To the unenchanted, yeah, the sea shell is just a sea shell. If it wants to do something impossible for a sea shell to do and there's a mortal onlooker, the Lycian needs the Wyrd rede or to convince their Changeling Companion to Call the Wyrd.

    Edit: or risk gaining Banality, assuming the mortal onlooker's Banality isn't too high.

    Edit 2: Forgot we're talking about a humanoid Lycian. Their Shape protects them from Banality due to mortal witnesses because it's easier for the Mists to blur people's perceptions about what's actually going on.

  • Their Shape is like a changeling's fae mein, while their Guise is sort of like a mortal seeming. They're all mundane things that have awakened and gained a chimerical overlay in the process. How that manifests is going to vary a lot from Lycian to Lycian, even between ones with the same Guise and Shape. A Lycian whose Guise is a car and Shape is humanoid might manifest as a person who rides along with the driver in a passenger seat or sits on the hood or trunk to talk to people outside the car or even the car's diver when the Lycian is moving about on their own. On the other hand, a Lycian whose...

  • I'll see what I can do. If I'm able to, I'll probably post it as a free download on Storyteller's Vault so it'll always be easily accessible.
