Dreaming: the Reviews–the Fair Folk

September 11, 2020

The first in a series of reviews of official White Wolf publications, Walking Away from Arcadia reviews Exalted: Fair Folk. We used this book as a source in our metaplot discussion about the Time of Legends. You may find our older discussion about the 2nd edition iteration of this book Graceful Wicked Masques relevant as well.

The themesong for this episode was Je voudrais être un pigeon by Monplaisir.

Bonus Episode: What Even Is Critique?

Bonus Episode: What Even Is Critique?

September 11, 2020

As a prelude to our series of reviews of White Wolf books we referenced in the metaplot series, this is an introduction to the very, very, very basics of critique. Victor and Simon discuss the purpose of critique in professional contexts, and the sorts of things we're going to be looking for when we review Dreaming books. This also serves as a content warning for people who don't like criticism or think it's impossible to like something while being aware of its shortcomings and wanting it to be better as it gets remade and rewritten in the future.

The themesong for this episode was Je voudrais être un pigeon by Monplaisir.

Metaplot: the Dreaming–Time of Legends

Metaplot: the Dreaming–Time of Legends

September 1, 2020

The first in a series of Changeling: the Dreaming metaplot summary and discussion episodes. The ancient pre-history of the World of Darkness has many names, even just within the Dreaming ecosystem. Often named either the Time of Legends or the Mythic Age, the first period in the Dreaming metaplot is obscured by the Mists and an erratic development plan. Join Victor and Simon as we attempt to shed a little light on the possibilities and canon sources for information on this frequently referenced but rarely illuminated time before the Sundering.

The themesong from this episode was LSD by Mon Plaisir.
