War of rage all over again (length)

Aaron finally understood Harano. For years, he had seen it in others, and couldn’t fathom how they could just give up hope. For years, he had understood, or thought he understood, that this was a battle that was being lost. But that didn’t change that it was a battle worth fighting. Every single lif...

Wait, i can be in a pack? (Length)

There was merit to the saying that you learned something new every day. Aaron had never realized that it was possible for Fera to be part of a werewolf pack. That it was possible for Gurahl to be part of a werewolf pack. For HIM to be part of a pack of any kind. Gurahl were so often solitary creatur...

Liquid Gold (May 2015 - worth it)

Vitality tonics were a royal pain. And that was putting it kindly. The process of crafting the potions themselves wasn’t so bad, but good lord the cost of the ingredients. Beetroot powder wasn’t so bad. At least that was grown locally. But he also needed Ginseng root, fresh if possible. Unfortunatel...

Why She is Lost and not just Gone (length)

It still hadn’t really sunk in for Aaron, but it was true nevertheless. Keyara was gone. Keyara would never again threaten to serve only beans as a way to reign in Aaron’s trickster tendencies. Keyara would never again be there calmly making her way through an intense battle giving him a visual remi...

Waking up as Egan (length)

Egan was not, by any sense of the phrase, a morning person. Unfortunately, Quarry Creek didn’t seem to care about that fact in the slightest. As usual, he’d been up well past midnight the night before. It seemed to him like the forces of the Wyrm took particular sadistic glee in making trouble at ab...

I don’t want to be Independent (July 2015 topic: independence)

Lit Topic: Independence Egan hadn’t been in Quarry Creek for long before he realized that his life was going to be VERY different. And he didn’t like it. He had so little guidance here. In Greece he had very specific instructions, duties and roles. In Greece he needed to carry a notebook with calend...

Re: (tabled pending mechanics update) Changeling: Protocol

I am a big part of the pushback around this ritual from rules team, and would like to explain why. This ritual is exceptionally powerful and flexible, and there is very little limitation written nor is there a way to contest the caster’s control of the space. Rather than trying to write complicated ...

Re: Changeling: Iron Seal

The problem wih the effect ending if the item is shattered is that the item isn’t necessary going to be shattered where the target can see it happen. Not soeaking for the team here, but perhaps the effect ends if the target witnesses the items destruction? Another concern is that the sentimental ite...

Question: Faith Idol. What is it?

The fetish section of the book mentions faith idols, but a search for idol does not bring up that word anywhere else in the book.

Are they the same thing as a Symbol of Faith as described in the faith numbing section?

Sticky (Aaron - length)

Somewhere in the far north of Canada Once upon a time Aaron had thought that he disliked the feeling of being sticky. There was the time that he scratched against the tree that Kiara had explicitly told him he shouldn’t scratch against. The sap had dried all over his back, and he had spent hours scr...

Playtest Notes From ST PLEASE READ -Philosophy of a Playtest: A playtest is not a day game. The purpose of a playtest is to stress test the new rules and get a feel for how they work in play.
