Peter Pan Syndrome: Children in Changeling

Peter Pan Syndrome: Children in Changeling

November 14, 2019

 

Today Victor and Simon gab about a controversial topic: Children in Changeling. Do children belong in a horror game? How do you use children either as storyteller characters or as player characters without falling prey to some of the gross tropes that people lean on? What happens when one of your motley gets busted for truancy? What kind of media has interesting examples of children in Dreaming-like environments?

Thank you everyone for listening!

Peter Pan; or, the Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up or Peter and Wendy by J. M. Barrie

Finding the Horror in Changeling: the Dreaming

Finding the Horror in Changeling: the Dreaming

August 14, 2019

We're back, offering up tasty, tasty, opinions about the types of horror we enjoy to play and write for Changeling: the Dreaming. This one is a fairly wide-ranging conversation between Victor and Simon on general points about different types of horror, horror's place in the zeitgeist, and the ways we use for our Changeling stories.

We broke the interlude story from this episode out and published it as a stand-alone episode: Beyond the Mists: Thomas' Story.

Thank you everyone for listening! We'll be in your ears again soon.

Welcome to the bizarroverse, where Simon publishes a book on the Storyteller Vault and Victor stands in for the readers and their questions.

A Phoenix Rising: Walking Away From Arcadia hits the ST Vault

A Phoenix Rising: Walking Away From Arcadia hits the ST Vault

February 4, 2019

Hello All! We've been off the wires and out of commission for a while. Simon and Victor circled up and are sad to say that we don't have the time or energy to produce 2 episodes a month anymore. So the show as you all knew it is effectively complete.

But FEAR NOT! We are still working on a number of projects, and this interview is the first sneak peek at that work. Victor wrote a Mage: The Ascension 20th Anniversary Chronicle Jumpstart for the Storyteller's Vault! If you want to hear what this fever dream is all about (seriously who writes a module for Mage, is that even a thing?) come listen to Simon throw Victor in the hot seat and ask what he was even thinking. You'll also find out a few details about some upcoming projects with the Walking Away From Arcadia imprint. Future work will get back to the Dreaming where it belongs, and there may just be a few more conversations to go along with these coming texts. We hope you'll all stick around to see what we're up to.

You can pickup a copy of A Phoenix Rising on The Storyteller's Vault.

GenCon and the Coming Winter - Walking Away From Arcadia is going on Hiatus

GenCon and the Coming Winter - Walking Away From Arcadia is going on Hiatus

August 15, 2018

That time in every Changeling's life has finally come for Simon and Victor. Winter is upon us. We are going on a hiatus until January when we will burst forth with Season 2 of Walking Away from Arcadia. Season 2 will be a bit different, and we share a few details about what we have in mind in this minisode. We also talk a little bit about the Changeling news that's come out of GenCon. This is a brief episode just to make sure everyone is up to speed before we slip off into that good Chimerical Death. Don't worry though, we'll be back, and there might even be an occasional enchantment here or there between now and January.  

Correction: In the record Victor said one of the two remaining C20 kickstarter rewards was the Anthology. He meant to say the new Immortal Eyes novel. We're sorry for the slipup.
