Settle down, class! If you didn’t mean to attend this first lecture for the Faelosophy major, then we suggest you exit gracefully now… but if you’d just like to stay and audit, that’s fine too. We’re talking about Changeling metaphysics today, hashing out some of the Deeper Questions about the nature of being, the relationship between dream and reality, and what really happens when a troll walks through a doorway. Joining us again is special guest and resident metaphysicist Terry Robinson of Mage: the Podcast, to help triangulate some opinions and lay down some knowledge. Do take notes, for there will be a pop quiz down the line.
A few good places to find Terry around the interwebs include:
- Mage: the Podcast at https://magethepodcast.com/ (through which you can also find that show’s Discord, etc.)
- Pain in the Dice podcast at https://www.paininthedice.com/, because game are fun, but sometimes hard
- You probably won’t find Terry at the book page for Kelefa Sanneh’s Major Labels: A History of Popular Music in Seven Genres, but because it came up in conversation, feel free to check that volume out…
- …but also, as of this posting, Terry has just released a homebrew Mage 20 book on the Umbra, so consider heading over to https://www.storytellersvault.com/product/455874?affiliate_id=3063731 and giving it a purchase!

Josh Hillerup (any pronoun) believes that whatever the dream of perfection might be, nockers are proof against its attainability, except when it comes to fashion.
Pooka G (any pronoun/they) only exists as a concept in relation to pastries and coffees already/yet to be consumed.
The subconscious is ceaselessly murmuring, and it is by listening to these murmurs that one hears the truth.
