    I had a friend who loved to play bards, and he created a changeling bard. Waltzed around as anybody he wanted to, and eventually killed the king of a nation, and took his place. Pretty cool. The End.

    I really like nWoD Changeling, not that I didn't love oWoD; it was just impossible to find a ST who could run it well. We had a game going but it eventually fizzled out towards the end of the semester, which was too bad, really.

    Pic related, I drew a character portrait for my Darkling Mirrorskin detective; the Fey smashed up his face like broken glass; whenever he changes his appearance, the features appear disjointedly on the glass.

    I've always liked London, it's got a lot of history that you can work with. After all, wouldn't it be interesting if the Great Fire of London was started by a True Fae sweeping through the city, and the six victims were in fact the leaders of the Freehold that existed at the time?

    But then again, I'm biased, being a Britfag.

    In a Changeling: the Lost campaign I was part of last year (that will be starting again this summer), my Wizened Oracle set up business as a fortune teller. She was pretty good at bullshitting your average gullible mortal, but if she needed she could actually see the future and even influence other people's destiny (using Contracts of Omen and Hearth).
    My business partner was another player, a Fairest who was a master of Dreamweaving, crafting dreams and infusing them into talismans so that whoever slept with them close would experience that dream. He also did custom jobs and "wet dreams".
    We had a pretty good thing going, he could craft fantasies and I was pretty good at making them come true by influencing the threads of Fate.

    Needless to say, we were pretty popular.

    There is a problem character in my Changeling group. I've made reference to him on /tg/ before in passing. Essentially, he created a Beast Hunterheart...who is, to all extents and purposes, a Catboy. A pair of cat ears, eyes, and tail. And obnoxious "KAWAII DESU!!" attitude.

    For a while, we were content to ignore him. But, today, he did something too utterly retarded to forgive. My character's Keeper was sighted in the city, and understandably, she began to utterly freak out and shit bricks over this. So, said catboy turns to her with this massive, shit-eating grin and comes out with:

    "There's nothing to be scared of, silly little baka Darkling!"

    He has to die. It's perfectly in-character as well; she's a paranoid little thing and is quite likely going to start thinking he's a Fae Loyalist trying to lure her into a false sense of complacancy. After all, no right-thinking Changeling can be that constantly happy, that mind-bendingly cheerful all the time.

    Tonight I'm going to try and convince the other two Darklings (our group is three Darklings, a Fairest, and the catboy) to help me roll this fucker up in a carpet and throw him off a bridge.

    I can't say I blame you, but how does the ST feel about this character? I know my ST would be very annoyed if someone created a character like that.

    It sounds like he breaks the mood in a game that is supposed to be about lost innosence, madness and fear (of the Others). But then again, perhaps your ST runs a more lighthearted game. Hard to give advice without knowing more.

    Nah, it's not a lighthearted game. To be honest, we're all sick to death of his character, but he's providing us a good gaming room and transport for those members of the group who can't drive. Plus, he's an alright guy out of character. I guess he just doesn't 'get' Changeling, no matter how much we try to explain it to him.

    Either that or he's roleplaying perfectly, and his character has been driven so crazy by the Others he's actually gone into full-on denial that there is any threat.

    Well then, you should probably have your paranoid little darkling proceed with her plan to kill him, or at least approach others with her suspicions that he might be a Loyalist spy. If he doesn't take a hint or react to this in character it's his own fault. If he does you might get a chance for some interesting inter-group drama.

    You should probably give him a chance to explain himself before you go all the way with murdering him however.

    Yea, you're right. Next session I'll make sure to corner him while he's alone for a nice little question and answer session, give his character a chance to try and explain himself. And if he can't, I'll off him, and see if I can make it look like self-defence. Handing him over to the Gentry seems a little too harsh from an IC perspective.

    Playing happy-go-lucky characters work best if you give them a definite dark side. That cute fuzzy exterior only barely hides a truly selfish, warped or tortured soul for example.

    I know it's a cliché in itself, with the sad clown and the cruel pranksters, but it works pretty well. If the character is cute in a "sarcastic" way (I don't really know a better way to say it. Non-english speaker here) those characters are less annoying in my experience.

    In Changeling: The Lost, the PC's play as people who are kidnapped by, quite literally, Faeries. Only they're insane people who care nothing for anything beyond their own amusement; beyond that it's impossible to understand the thought process of a Faerie. They steal people away and either use them as toys, set them to work, turn them into animals, and do all kinds of horrible things. Just because they can. During this time, the humans change. They become saturated with Fae magic, which results in physical and mental alterations.

    Most people don't escape. But a few do. They tear their way out of the Fae realm of Arcadia and back through the Hedge, the lunatic maze of thorns that separates Earth from Arcadia, to be shat out into a world that they're no longer fully a part of any more.

    It's also worth noting that, when they return from Arcadia, the vast, vast majority of Changelings are left with a whole plethora of mental problems. It's theorised that part of their soul gets taken or damaged during the whole process of escaping from Arcadia. Either way, most of them are at least slightly mad.

    Someone once described it as "Abuse Victims: The Therapy" which isn't too far from the truth.

    I love it, personally.

    Mage: "So, what's this Arcadia I've heard so much about? I'd love to go there, I bet I could learn a lot."

    That's pretty much it. Changelings generally think a lot of Mages have an unpleasant habit of poking their noses into places that noses shouldn't be poked into.

    Acanthus went to Arcadia at their awakening (not physically of course) and basicly draw their powers from there. My question basicly was, if the changelings see any difference between Acanthus and Fae.
    >> Anonymous 05/01/09(Fri)17:25 No.4453827

    Yea. The powers are especially interesting. They're not conventional magic, but a literal, binding contract with some part of the physical world.

    If a Darkling wants to use 'Boon of the Scuttling Spider', an ability that lets her walk up sheer walls or ceilings, she has to ask the wall and the shadows clinging to it to her let walk on them, reminding them of the contracts, and pay a tithe of glamour (Changeling magical energy) to upkeep her own end of the bargain.

    I'm not too familiar with Mage, I'm afraid.

    Basically the Changeling Arcadia and Mage Arcadia don't have to be the same thing; it's left deliberately ambiguous and up to the Storyteller to decide. Though if the Mage admitted that he got his power from a place called "Arcadia", he's unlikely to be trusted by any Changeling with an ounce of sense, regardless of if the two places are the same or not.

    Well seing that 'both Arcadias' are realms outside of the material realm that are populated with beings called 'Fae' and where time is strangely warped, we can actually be fairly sure that those two places are the same.

    And yes, it seem quite right that Changelings wouldn't trust Acanthus very lightly.

    A nice little story from the Changeling: the Lost rulebook:

    The story goes that there was once a troll, a beast who dined on human flesh and carved knife-handles out of bones. Business was good, and the troll decided that he needed assistance in his workshop. One night, he stole into a village and took away three sons of a shoemaker. The ogre worked the three boys in his workshop, on the drill and lathe and chisel and awl for long hours. Every day, at sawn, he beat them, and he fed them scraps of raw flesh.
    One night, the eldest boy took one of the knives he had made for the troll and crept in upon him while he was sleeping. But the knife shrieked out loud and would not kill the troll, and the troll awoke and cooked the boy in a pie and forced each of his brothers to eat a slice, before he beat them so hard that they were all bruises.
    >> Anonymous 05/01/09(Fri)18:44 No.4454407
    The second son made a pick so that he could open the lock on the door to the troll's workshop, and at night he crept to the door and picked the lock. But the troll was waiting behind the door, and he chopped the boy up and made him into stew, and fed it to the youngest son before beating him so hard that his teeth were all broken and his mouth was all blood.
    The third boy worked so hard and so well in the workshop that the monster could find fewer and fewer reasons to beat him, and the knives the boy made were beautifully carved, and the troll found that he could sell them for more gold than he ever had before. One day, the troll came into the workshop, and he leaned over the boy's shoulder as the boy carved the knife handle, and the boy pointed out the detail of the carving, and the troll craned closer to look, and quick as lightning the boy turned his hand and stabbed the troll in the eye. And that was the end of the troll.
    The boy wanted to run away, but he turned back and saw the workshop was now empty. And he didn't leave. He ate the troll's food and slept in the troll's bed. And he now dines on human flesh, and carves knife handles from the bones. And business is good. One day soon, he will need assistance.

    Yeah that too of course. I just meant that changelings can lose themselves too and become just as bad as their captors.

    In fact there is a theory that changelings who spend too long in Arcadia eventually become one of the gentry. But I guess most of the Lost would rather not believe that, for the sake of their comrades still trapped beyond the Hedge.

What gives the “Others” the right to grab people for slaves and replace them with sociopathic duplicates? As it happens, it’s been going on forever, and as for what gives the Others the right… something does, because they keep doing it. An Arrow who wants to take on this injustice is probably going to die at the end of a Fae lord’s blade, but that might not stop the mage.

    I'd be tempted to houserule it to something else; they become almost like a half-Fae (more than all Changelings are already, I mean), something relatively equal in power, but it's not guaranteed they'll be allowed into Arcadia; or even that they can find it in the first place. I imagine most of them wind up carving out a hollow in the hedge and operating much like a regular Fae Lord would do, perhaps even thinking they have reached Arcadia.

    I'm not sure I like the idea of 'explaining' where some of the Gentry come from. It makes them a little less mysterious and a little more mundane. And mundane is something a member of the Gentry should never be.

    Agreed. Until the very endgame and the last chapter of a changeling chronicle, I don't think the players should have any run-ins with the True Fae exept for perhaps some exiled noble stranded in the mortal world and of course - The Wild Hunt, which you frantically try to flee from.

    We had a chapter where we spent pretty much all the time fleeing though the hedge. The ST used music and had this piece that started with a horn blowing, followed by frantic drum beating. Every time you heard that damn horn you crapped your pants cause you KNEW arrows would start flying at you or vicious hunting dogs would come barreling out of the underbrush or something, as they toyed with us. Was intense, and we never got more than a glimpse of the actual hunters.

    Yeah he's great, but I think he's especially good at doing survival horror style stuff.

    He sometimes does these one-shot one-evening zombie survival sessions too, using WoD rules and with different situations and premises.

    We usually create characters togther and then shuffle the sheets, so everyone get a random character. Sometimes you end up as the crusty old vietnal veteran and sometimes you're the sexy cheerleader, and it's an unspoken rule that only one or two characters will make it out alive. When you die you start helping the ST, and thinking of inventive ways for the remaining characters to meet their end (usually passing notes).

    You know, this could actually be pretty interesting. Play a one-shot game of a Hunter going after what he thinks is a 'normal' Supernatural who's been kidnapping people in the area, only for it to end with him facing off against one of the Others and being stolen away after a short, futile fight.

    The ST then launches into a full-blown Changeling campaign, with you bringing back your Hunter after he escaped Arcadia, now transformed into a Changeling.

    Oh yes.

    Perhaps this could be a good way to insert a new changeling character into a running chronicle. Perhaps the hunter would even start out as a semi-antagonist to the other players until they resolve to work together or he gets abducted.

    Remember, time passes differently in Arcadia. So he might be gone a few weeks in the real world, but having spent years in captivity as a slave to the Others.
    Perhaps the only people he remembers and can now connect to are the changelings he met prior to his abduction.

    If you just mean the location the RP takes place in, then there were some suggestions earlier in the thread. Look for a city with a lot of established, unpleasant history. Famous murderers or national disasters that you can work into your setting; one Anon suggested London, and the Great Fire being the work of a True Fae. What if Jack the Ripper was a Darkling Razorhand, and the prostitutes he murdered were all agents of the Gentry? You want stuff like that, things that let you build a good, solid mythology to base the history of your Freehold on.

    No-one really knows what Jack looks like. Who he is, what his motivations are, hell, even whether he's on the side of the Freehold or the Gentry is a mystery. All that's known is he's a very old, very powerful Darkling Razorhand unaffiliated with any Court and unpledged to any member of the Freehold. Occasionally, the current ruler will receive a package containing a handful of severed bodyparts taken from one of the Freehold's enemies, and a hand-written note saying simply "You're welcome - Jack".

    The handwriting is different each time. Unfortunately, occasionally, the same happens to a member of the Freehold itself. Some believe this shows that Jack is able to week out traitors who have influenced their ranks. Others are convinced that Jack is, simply, a murderous lunatic unable to discern friend from foe.

    Of course, the only person who might know for sure, is Jack himself.
