Game Information

1. Genre: Changeling the Lost


2. Setting:
The region the game is set in is a dark and much larger version of the city of Armidale in the New England Tablelands. There is a seedy undercurrent to the hedge in the city, twisting narrow streets and broken glass. There are hungry things lurking in the dark alleys, both feral and seductive.
There are two motleys that inhabit the region. One is the new formed seasonal motley and the other is the remnants of the old freehold of the theatre of the changing seasons. The painful separation could lead them to strength or it could tear the region apart.

3. Themes:
Beauty (2): There is fascination and wonders to behold..... if you can stand them.

Madness (2): There is fascination and wonders to behold.... if you can't.

Community (4): Madness and destruction await those that cannot stand by their kin. Will you find a motley to stand fast with or face the darkness alone?

Temptation (2): What harm can one little taste do? Go on, you only live once!

Fear (3): Beware. They are coming for you.

Hope (3):. If we stand together perhaps we can survive the storm.

4. Mood:
Fear: What untold horrors are lurking beyond the so-called “safe” areas? Near god-like forces are taking what the Lost have wrought and twisting it to their own desires, threatening the Lost community. All this in the shadow of a colossal power that the Lost can feel is a close as the refection in a mirror.

5. Preferred character types, and restrictions:
At the moment there is only the motley of the Stalwart Shield and the remnants of the Astaru so it is preferred that new characters differ sufficiently from these characters so that a new motley with differing duties can be established.
All players need to supply some detail on their fetches, including where they might be now and some key personality traits that may be different from the changeling

7. Transport In/Out Information (threats, methods etc)

Travelling to the South: Characters can use the mundane Road, Rail or Plane to travel from Armidale to other regions, which has it’s own risks after the sun sets as no-one knows what lives out in the wilds, but is reasonably safe during daylight hours.

Travelling to the North: Characters can use the mundane Road or Plane to travel from Armidale to other regions, which has it’s own risks after the sun sets as no-one knows what lives out in the wilds, but is reasonably safe during daylight hours

Travelling to far outside the city limits through the Hedge can be dangerous, especially as the industrial cityscape quickly becomes wild and untamed brambles with very few trods or paths

External Factors Information

1. Experience Awards:

Game Attendance = 3xp

Circle of Love Mention = 1xp

Circle of Love Winner = 2xp;

Remote Member Report = 5xp

Downtime = 2xp;

New Player (First Game) = 1xp

New Player (Second Game) = 2xp

New Player (Third Game) = 3xp

Character Wiki Entry = 3xp


Circle of Love: Circle of Love: used by players to identify memorable players, characters, scenes and props within the game that they truly enjoyed. Players may mention multiple people during the circle, but they can only give their vote to 1 person. The ST cannot be everywhere at once, and really the game is about what the players enjoy. This peer review system frees up the ST from judgment calls and allows greater transparency. The players themselves determine who is most rewarded for the games they play

Remote Member Report: Remote Member Report: 2-5xp as judged by ST of venue. For those players who are members of PtAP, but are unable to make regular games because they reside outside of Armidale, sending reports on downtime scenes and email interaction personally or over lists may garner them players as compensation for effort. These awards cannot apply in any month they attend a game either here or elsewhere

New Player = a person who has not previously played Changeling the Lost in this Chronicle but has decided to give the genre a try now. This does not necessary mean that the player is new to the club – just new to the genre.


2. Custom Rules:

No Approval Number = Not Accessible. If you don’t have an approval number for an item on your sheet then it cannot be used in game. This includes the non-seasonal court powers.

Draw Mechanics: New World of Dice is the preferred method of rolling. Other dice-rolling applications need to be approved by the Storyteller


3. Downtime Handling Procedure

Downtimes will be due by no later than 14 days before the next scheduled game. Any downtimes received after this time will be processed in the next month (unless you decide to submit a new on time downtime in that month to override). Downtimes should be submitted through the Downtimes Form.


4. Crossover limitations: There will be no direct “in-game” cross-overs. Downtime cross-over can occur, but only via merit (contact, retainers, allies etc). It is expected that players be sensible and responsible in undertaking any downtime actions that might have an impact on another.

New/Interstate Players

1. Information for New Folks (new to Cam):

New Players are encouraged to either contact the ST at least a week in advance of the scheduled game (see above) or send a post to our facebook group (also see above). We can then organise a time to go through your character concept so that it is ready for game.

Playstyle: PtAP Changeling is very light on PvP as the local environment and NPC’s provide more than enough excitement at the moment. However, player-driven plotlines are most welcome.

Character Sheets: Those interested in making up a changeling character can find the approved character sheet at: sites.google.com/site/stevescharactersheets/sheets

Draw Mechanics: New World of Dice App is the preferred method of rolling. Other dice-rolling applications need to be approved by the Storyteller


2. Information for External Folks (from other Domains):

Please have your ST send your sheet to the VST email (see above) no later than three days prior to the scheduled game date so that printing can be arranged.
