CONTRACTS
(The Fae-Touched's Contract dots are restricted by the number invested in Merit (ex. 5 dot Retainer gets 5 dots of Contracts; 3 dot Retainer allows one Contract that costs 3xp to acquire, etc.) 
MERITS
(A Retainer can have access to twice the Merit dots in her own Merits. They must take Court Goodwill in the same court that the Player Character is a member of.)

Frailties

  • Banes: A bane is a physical item or material that causes the Changeling great harm.
    Birchwood soaked in water or glass from a church window.
  • Taboo: A taboo is a behavioral restriction or compulsion.
    Your character can not enter doorways first when in a group or may not accept gifts from total strangers.
  • Minor frailties are things that only happen occasionally.
    You can't wear shoes on Fridays. If someone plays a particular Mozart sonata, you are physically pained, and can't stand to be within earshot.
  • Major frailties have a severe impact on day to day life.
    You can't wear anything which would cover your feet. Music of any kind wards you away, and you are seriously damaged by its presence until you can escape earshot.

Glamour Harvesting

  • Changelings can roll once per week to harvest Glamour.
    • See CtL pg 103 for Harvesting Rules.
  • Oneiromancy Harvesting and Reaping IC can only be done via scene request.
  • Changelings can harvest normally IC from PCs. The PC from whom Glamour has been harvested must update their Tracker to note that the WP is being lost due to Glamour harvesting, and indicate the name of the Changeling.
    • If the PC being harvested or reaped from has a Supernatural Potency trait (Blood Potency, Primal Urge, etc..) and is resisting they may make a Clash of Wills to not only notice what is happening but stop the fae from gathering any Glamour and therefore WP. See Clash of Wills for which rules to apply.
      • If the Changeling wins the clash they may Harvest as normal and the opposing side has no idea where the loss of WP came from.
      • If the opposing side wins, they know that the Changeling is somehow attempting to take away their energy. It does not reveal the Changeling's nature or how they were attempting to do such a thing.
  • If an ST scene begins and you've not done a Harvesting Roll the week of, you will start with Half your max Glamour rounded up.

Keep track of your Glamour, WP, and Health with the PC Tracker template.

Goblin Contracts & Debt

  • Use your Tracker to track your Goblin Debt, and please notify the ST with the change. I'll be keeping track myself as well!
  • Contracts must be purchased from a Market Scene.
  • While it's believed there is a chance for Goblin Debt to be worked off, OOCly, there is not.

Hedge Fruit & Oddment Harvesting

  • The Merit Goblin Bounty dictates how many Fruits and Oddments you have at one time. These can not be sought after weekly and stored up. The only way to raise how many you have at once is to raise the merit.
    • If you do not have Hollow, the extra fruits that can't be carried, can not be stored during that time.
    • These fruits and oddments will be random, rolled for by an ST (with a system made by Keller.
    • If you wish to have access to specific fruits each week, you may combine this merit with Hollow + Workshop (Goblin Fruit Farming) to designate which fruits you're tending. One dot of workshop for each type.
      • Oddments may not be farmed.

Mantle & Court Goodwill

  • Changelings are limited to Mantle 3 at chargen, and may spend experience to acquire Mantle 4 after one month of playing.
  • Fae-Touched may start with Court Goodwill 2 in their own Court. As with changelings and Mantle, they can raise it to Court Goodwill 3 after one month of playing.
