episode 37 - kithbook: Nockers

Another dive into the library…! This week, we’re taking a closer look at the ill-tempered genius of the nockers as we flip through the pages of their Kithbook, the third in the lineup. There are certainly some interesting tidbits in this one: the origins of nockers’ foul mouths, some fast-and-loose chimerical “science”, a panoply of devices and vehicles from their workshops. And then there are… choices that were made about their heritage and presentation that we examine with more critical eyes. Friend of the show Charles Siegel joins us on this episode to help hash out who the nockers are, who they could be, and how to (better) fold them into your Changeling chronicle.
