    replied to Sorcerers as a greater template
    The great thing about Curses is that they can be anything. Every Sorcerer can have a different one, inspired by a Relic, Utterance or a Deviant Scar. The last one is from Deviant: the Renegades, and it's great. I'm browsing it right now, and your idea could be modeled by "Deterioration", "Perilous Variation" or "Genetic Disorder", just to name a few.

    To stay in theme of Curses, I'd make every ancient Sorcerer suffer from one. Perhaps contracting one from a Tomb was necessary to unlock magic powers or a ritual of initiation branded one into the Sorcerer's soul. Now, the suffering of living with a Curse generates Pillars or Sekhem that the Sorcerer can use. It would explain why not everyone would jump on getting mystic powers, and would make Sorcerers act in strange ways to compensate for their handicaps.

    Yeah, it's just headcanon on my part. Moonwhisper outright stated that the test of allegiance doesn't have to actually work, so I allowed myself to slip this headcanon in as an assumption Changelings may make.


    If we choose to take my headcanon as fact of the campaign, the former Loyalist should probably be able to slip bonds, but the latter likely wouldn't. I would replace that ability with something thematic, like being able to call Arcadian backup, or something similar....

    Having escaped from Arcadia, all Lost can slip out of restraints with minimum effort. Loyalists, having never actually escaped, should not possess that ability - or so the logic of Courtiers goes. In order to prove one's allegiance, a Changeling must escape being handcuffed, chained or locked in a box. Different Courtiers debate whether this test would work on Privateers, but agree that better something than nothing.

    There's also the matter of "Sight of Truth and Lies" - a Goblin Contract that acts as a lie detector. Rational Changelings would use it whenever possible, but...

  • You might be really interested in Demon: Translation Guide. It's an official booklet devoted to crossover between Fallen and Descent - including thematical. It's one of the later Translation Guides, which means the writers started to really play with the ideas available to them, which resulted in a great product.
