Important notes

  • We are in the process of converting everything to Changeling 20th Anniversary. If you find something that has not been updated, open a +request so staff can look into it.
  • If you're new to the sphere, we strongly recommend you read this Changeling the Dreaming Primer before proceeding further. This will give you an idea what to expect.
  • Title cannot be taken in chargen above 1. Any increases are at staff discretion post approval.
  • Sidhe (both varieties) are open ONLY at staff discretion.
  • KinFae (Kithain + Kinfolk) are currently closed as of June 2021.
  • The Seelie and Unseelie Court are not deadly enemies. They have philosophical differences, and individuals may dislike each other individually, but as groups they still work together and it isn't a big deal. Their real enemies are (a) the Dauntain and other forces of Banality, and (b) the Shadow Court.
  • Commoners can enter houses. To begin as a member of a house, you need to follow the same rules as a Sidhe; you need to either be sponsored into an existing household or come in with 3+ new characters (who can also be of the household).

Choose Concept, Court (set as both Faction and Court), Legacy Seelie, Legacy Unseelie, House (if any), Seeming and Kith

  • House rule: When open, Autumn Sidhe (C20) are allowed and are listed as such on +sheet; Arcadian Sidhe are just "Sidhe" on +sheet
  • Shadow Court: set Faction = Unseelie, Court = Shadow

Birthrights: If your kith birthrights and/or house boon include an attribute or ability bonus, don't add it yourself, ask staff to set a +effect instead.

Backgrounds:


Seemings:

  • In C20, Seemings reflect his/her outlook on her life as a changeling and the Dreaming in general. While often tied to her mortal age, changelings can be any seeming at any age. See WW92041 Changeling: the Dreaming (20th Anniversary) pg.#83–87
  • Set +note for Seeming bonus based on the following:
Seeming Bonus Description
Childling +1 Glamour Childlings view the world with wide-eyed wonder. NOTE: As PCs must be at least 18 years of age, and Childlings are at least mentally underage, if not physically, we DO NOT allow Childling PCs.
Wilder +1 Glamour OR +1 Willpower (set +note) Wilders are seekers of adventure.
Grump +1 Willpower Grumps are builders and keepers of tradition.

Note kith Birthrights and Frailties. If they affect your mortal seeming, then they're recorded via permanent +effect (ask staff to set these).
