Glamour and Banality

May 15, 2017

In this conversation we discuss Changeling: the Dreaming’s temper traits -- Glamour and Banality. What is Glamour? What is Banality? What are they used for? How do you get them? Are they good? Bad? We also discuss the analogs for these tempers used in other products: Mists, Weaving, Medicine, Chi, and Gossamer.

The readings from this conversation were from Second Chances by Charles de Lint and A case for queer childhood horror in the World of Darkness by Victor Kinzer

The music from this episode was “LSD” by Monplaisir.

The World of Stormy Pinkness

Welcome to the first episode of Walking Away from Arcadia, a Changeling: the Dreaming Podcast. Curious about Changeling: the Dreaming? Wondering how things as silly and happy as romantic quests and feudalism fits into the crushing angst of the World of Darkness? Forgot what the Mists or Nightmare are? Confused by how technology is both glamorous and banal? Want to know why you shouldn’t hand-wave a character’s chimerical death to get on with the story? We’d love for you to join us while we lay out the basic shape and history of Changeling: the Dreaming!


The readings from this episode were from “The Enchanted”, “Changeling: the Dreaming 2nd Edition”, and “War in Concordia”.

The music from this episode was “LSD” by Monplaisir, “You, Yourself, and the Main Character” by Komiku, and “Reynardyne” performed by Allister Thompson.
