Yes, we already did an episode on those long-suffering boggans, but don’t you think they deserve another? Having dealt with the fanmade “old” Kithbook: Boggans previously (check out https://changelingthepodcast.com/podcast/episode-77-old-kithbook-boggans/), we are now moving on to the new Kithbook: Boggans, released as a Kickstarter goal for C20. In the spirit of the older editions’ kithbooks, the

The freehold is the center of changeling life, providing safety, community, and a connection to the Dreaming for wayward Kithain. But what makes each of them unique?

Alternate and/or historical settings for Changeling is always something that piques our interest. So we were keen to read the Gimme Shelter Player’s Guide supplement (released April 2) that presents the fae of Swinging Sixties London. We’re joined this week by the book’s author, Bram Clark, who talks with us about his take on this

Now that we’re through the corebook for C20, other supplements seem like small (but no less nourishing) potatoes. This time around is a double feature: we’re flipping through Yours to Keep, the jumpstart and intro adventure for the edition, and Ready-Made Characters, a set of 13 write-ups (one for each core kith) and sample motleys

And so we come to the third part of this trilogy, wherein we talk about changes to this edition. There are hundreds of little tweaks and adjustments to be found in the Changeling 20th Anniversary corebook, but we’re focusing on a dozen of the most significant that stand out to us.

Whew. Doing a walkthrough of the corebook was kind of a marathon, but treating it as a text in isolation is only part of the story. In this (thankfully shorter, because we recorded it the same day as the first) installment, we’re drawing on our grump knowledge of the previous editions to talk about the

We’ve spoken before about what novels and short stories bring to the World of Darkness. At best, they can provide a naturalistic feel for a lived-in world that players and Storytellers can explore; at worst, they confuse the reader and muddle the rules of the setting. There aren’t nearly as many items in the data
