Dark Ages: Fae

July 1, 2018

Today on Walking Away from Arcadia, Victor and Simon discuss the strongly-felt-about-by-fans prequel to Changeling: the Dreaming -- Dark Ages: Fae. We discuss the themes DAF and CTD have in common, their places relative to each other in the shard-like timeline of the Shattering, and how we each might (or do) pull from DAF for inspiration in Interregnum games.
