Storyteller Vault Reviews: Kithbook: Strega and Cantrip Cards

Storyteller Vault Reviews: Kithbook: Strega and Cantrip Cards

December 18, 2019

Here's one for you from the Vaults. Today, Victor and Simon interview Jeremy Jagosz, author of Kithbook: Strega. We talk with him about what inspired him to write it, what place he sees the Strega filling in Changeling: the Dreaming, and preview a little of what's in the book. And who isn't fond of owls?

In the second review, we discuss our thoughts on the Cantrip Cards (and by extension the Realm Cards) by XY RPG Creations. This simple, yet brilliant, PDF provides an easy way for players and storytellers to quickly reference how Changeling's sometimes confusing Arts work without having to go into mortal combat over the only copy of the sourcebook at the table.

Thank you for listening!

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!

We're back, offering up tasty, tasty, opinions about the types of horror we enjoy to play and write for Changeling: the Dreaming.

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