Important notes

  • 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.
  • Increasing Title to 3 and keeping it there is subject to '+policy pc leadership'. Taking it in chargen requires 3+ approved PCs (new or existing) OOCly agreeing ahead of time to join your household/motley.
  • Sidhe (both varieties) are limited to either followers of a previously approved sidhe, or leaders with 3+ advance supporters as above.
  • 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

Seeming Glamour Willpower Banality Description

Wilder 4 2 3 You are a teenager in attitude and appearance. Radical and experimental, you chase after the stuff of new dreams. NOTE: PCs must be at least 18 years of age.
Grump 3 5 5 You are a full-grown adult, seen by most changelings as "over the hill." Despite this, you are respected.
  • Sidhe of House Liam are +1 Banality (CtD 110)

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