CtL thoughts

Here's a very rough "blurb" for The Second Rome, a tabletop CtL game I'm thinking of running sometime in the future.

Something to let percolate through the back corners of my mind for a while, I guess....

Ohhh... I like the idea of playing in a darker Changeling setting like that! Question: Where would the characters fit in? Would they be, as in For Life and Liberty, average folk who mostly go about their own business? Would they have to be fighting AGAINST the fear and sorrow or could they be supporters of the Autumn King and Winter Queen?

Yeah, the nWoD version of Changeling is a lot darker than the old. It's a nice change. :)

Be advised, though, that Changeling: The Lost is nothing like Changeling: The Dreaming (for which I am very grateful). The characters in Lost are not faerie souls reborn in human bodies, they're mortals who were abducted and enslaved by the True Fae (euphemistically referred to as "The Gentry"). Their captivity leaves its mark on them (one of the characters in the CtL demo was a falcon for his captor - he now has raptor-like characteristics), making them other than human. Through strength of will, they manage to escape their captors, only to discover that their captivity has changed them too much to go back to their old lives (and in many cases, a simulacrum created by their captor - called a "Fetch" - has replaced them in them). With nowhere else to go, they band together with other Lost (who at least understand what they've gone through).

There's the very real possibility that your captor will come back for you, or that your Fetch will try to kill you so it can have your life all to itself. And *then* there's the possibility of Lost versus Lost, or Lost versus any of the other denizens of the World of Darkness...there are *so* many possibilities!

Where would the characters fit in in "The Second Rome?" I was envisioning either "ordinary" folks (well, as "ordinary" as anyone could be in Lost) caught up in extraordinary events, or outright rebels - the "preferred" vision of Lost government is a rotating system of four Kings or Queens dependent on the season (the Spring King or Queen rules during the spring, the Summer King or Queen during the summer, and so on), after all.

Damn. I have a great idea for a rebel character, too.

*Sighs*

One day, I will table-top again!
