Changeling the Podcast
episode 67 — kith-building workshop

It’s a time-honored tradition among Changeling groups to construct their own kiths, but the process has always been idiosyncratic. Doing justice to folklore and balanced game mechanics don’t always go hand in hand. Luckily, the 20th Anniversary Edition has provided a basic template for creating them, so we’re taking the opportunity to do a short kith-building workshop, wherein the nymphs finally get their due. (Yes, yes, Inanimae: the Secret Way tried to definitively re-cast them as Sessile Ones, but we defy that idea.) Join us as we scrape together the bits of precedent for the kith, and talk through the questions-and-answers process in C20 as applied to them. Perhaps it will give you some grist for the mill to create your own…!

We mentioned two homebrew products by members of our community that informed the approach here.
