Rules

From Dark City

Joining The Sphere

  • No previous Full Splat can become a Changeling or Fae-Touched.
    • No Venue specific half splat can become a Changeling or Fae-Touched.
  • Only mortal or mortal+ can make a transition to Changeling or Fae-Touched.
    • Previous Mortal+ lose all their supernatural benefits/merits when becoming Changeling or Fae-Touched.

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 players do not adhere to this request, we will remove IC harvesting, so Changeling players, please keep your scene partners accountable.

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

Goblin Contracts & Debt

  • Use your Tracker to track your Goblin Debt.
  • Open a Ticket when you use a Goblin Contract. This ticket will be open until the debt is gone.
  • Contracts must be purchased from a Market Scene.

Contracts

Changeling Hours

  • If a Wizened wants to make this contract permanent with willpower you need to open a ticket.

Chrysalis

  • For anything beyond mundane animals not already statted, please submit a ticket to discuss with the ST.

Helios Light

  • Blindness lasts one turn.

Talon and Wing

  • The transportation benefit adds 10 to speed; it does not let you fly, or swim to great depths.

Pledges & Oath

  • You can not form a Pledge without Consent.
  • For every Oath, Pledge and Promises of Service you need to create a ticket with the person in question and make sure that it will be written down on your sheet until it is broken or solved.
  • Those Pledges and Oath need to be happen on-screen in the DNYC server.

Mien

  • We do not allow extra full useable limbs in Miens.
  • Tails, Ears and Antennae can be written for fluff purposes but have no mechanical benefit.
  • If your character has wings they can not use them in any scenes without using a Contract that might give you the use of flight.

Fetch

  • You can not take Fetches as Retainer. You can gain your Fetch as Allies and Contacts.
  • The Freehold will see a Fetch that is close to you as a potential helper.

    • If you wish you can take Hobgoblin or Hedgebeast Retainer without Dread Powers.

Frailties

  • 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.

Banes & Taboos

  • 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.
