Building a Changeling
- Start by following the Universal Character Creation section in the Universal Character Information chapter and then…
- Choose a Kith (listed below)
- Choose 3 Arts as Innate Arts. If you choose an innate Shadow Art you cannot choose an innate Seelie Art, and vice versa.
- Fill in 10 points of Glamour (Changeling Energy)
- Fill in 3 dots of Banality.
- Spend 12 points on Arts.
- Spend 18 points on Backgrounds.
- Spend 10 points (freebies) anywhere you like on your sheet.
When purchasing powers as a Changeling, you must purchase them in order. In order to purchase a level 2 power, you must have purchased the level 1 of the same tree. To purchase a level 3 power, you must purchase the level 2 power from the same tree, etc.
Changelings come with a few built-in powers.
- Enchant ObjectEnchant ObjectEnchant Object: Create a 3x5 card with the following: "Enchant Object, 1 hour - 1 WP to resist" - "Gain Enchanted Sight (see but not hear into umbra from realm) & Reduced Delirium (if affected by Delirium, respond as if your WP is at least 4) & Impunity toward [your name] (you may not attack unless they attack you first); 1 Willpower to resist. At the end of the effect forget everything that happened while enchanted and destroy this card. If resisted, destroy this card." At any point, you may offer the Enchanted object to another individual. If a non-Changeling accepts the object being offered, hand them the Enchantment card, they take the effects of the card unless they spend one Willpower to resist the entire effect., 1 Glamour
- Enchanted SightEnchanted SightEnchanted Sight: Buff, Sight. You may see into the Umbra from the Realm, but not hear., No Cost, Always On.
- Kith FormKith FormKith Form: Form. The Changeling pulls their chimerical form into substance. Each kith gains specific bonuses while their kith form is active. While in Kith Form, a Changeling loses their Fragile Magic weakness. However, if a Changeling drops to the dying state while in Kith Form, they immediately gain 1 permanent Banality, and they lose the mechanical benefits of Kith Form for the rest of the day (change out of Kith Form costuming at earliest convenience). A Changeling cannot gain Banality this way more than once per day. Use either a mask or other distinct costuming (such as removable beards or noses), represent your Kith. While in Kith Form gain Gauntlet Sight, No Cost, Always On, and Echo, No Cost, Always On. - Variable effect - see specific Kith for more information. 1 Willpower, Self, 1 hour.
- Muse RegenerationMuse RegenerationMuse Regeneration: You regain 1 Glamour per 5 minutes that you continuously observe a character creating art, such as writing, drawing, painting, performing music, or enthusiastically reciting a story.
- After being in the Dying state for 10 minutes, you may gain 1 permanent Banality and empty your Glamour pool to regain full Health. When you do, enter a Forgetting state. Otherwise, after 10 minutes in the dying state you die.
- Glamour - The primary Changeling energy pool.
- Disbelief - An anti-pool. Disbelief can eventually cause your Banality to increase. When the Disbelief pool reaches 10, gain 1 Banality and Disbelief resets to 0. Disbelief also increases any time you are hit for “iron” damage or whenever you reach 0 Glamour. At start of each game, your Disbelief is reset to zero.
- Banality - Banality is your character’s inability to accept the fantastical. As long as Banality has not reached 10, once per game you may spend 3 XP at check-in to reduce your Banality by 1. Reaching 10 Banality kills the fae soul of the character; you lose access to all Changeling mechanics and revert to Mortal character sheet.
Ritual and Fetish Access
All Changelings have access to the Rituals background. Only Nockers may craft Fetishes; any Changeling may use Glamour Fetishes.
- Nodes - Freeholds are Glamour nodes and are attackable.
- Muse RegenerationMuse RegenerationMuse Regeneration: You regain 1 Glamour per 5 minutes that you continuously observe a character creating art, such as writing, drawing, painting, performing music, or enthusiastically reciting a story. - Changelings are sustained by the creativity of others.
- Receiving an Enchanted Item - Receiving an Enchanted Object restores 1 Glamour and destroys the 3x5 card.
- Any time you would gain Glamour, you may instead choose to reduce your Disbelief by that amount.
Whenever a target resists one of your Art powers, you may not use another Art for 10 seconds unless you give yourself 1 Disbelief.
In a Forgetting state, you lose access to all Arts, your Kith Form, and Birthrights. While in this state, you forget all about your Changeling half, and all supernatural knowledge is forgotten behind mundane explanations. Being brought to 0 Glamour or gaining a permanent Banality will cause a Forgetting state. On the plus side, you cannot gain Disbelief while in a Forgetting state. You may exit a Forgetting by receiving a single point of Glamour.
Arts - Choose 3 Trees
Changelings are a bit more flexible than most other types of supernaturals. Choose 3 Arts to be innate. If you purchase a Seelie art, you may not purchase a Shadow art, and vice versa. Choosing a Seelie art will define your nature as a Seelie changeling; one who honors the noble ideals of the Dreaming. Choosing a Shadow art will define your Changeling as someone sworn to serve the nightmare aspect of the Dreaming.
Learning New Arts You may learn any level of an Art Tree using the rules found in the section: “teaching and learning non-innate powers, skills, abilities, and techniques”. Each level requires a teacher, however Changelings may specify any number of levels being taught at once up to Level 5.
