episode 72 — time of judgment

It’s strange to go back to the end of an era, but that’s the feel of things this week as we pick up Time of Judgment, finale to the old World of Darkness. After the “Big Three” each got their own book of the end times, the remaining (lower-selling) games got one chapter each in this catchall supplement. And those were the last pages of Changeling for over a decade—so it’s seems fitting to cover this as our last full episode of the season. There’s some Storytelling guidance and five scenarios (about which we have thoughts), and a note of bittersweetness about it all. How else could it have (for then) ended?

The book is available to add to your collection at https://www.storytellersvault.com/product/699?affiliate_id=3063731, and you’ll get the chapters on Demon, Hunter, Kindred of the East, and Mummy to boot! We pointed to Harbingers of Winter as well, for incorporating the Tithed Ones but also other big baddies of Changeling. That one is at https://www.storytellersvault.com/product/388455?affiliate_id=3063731, and you can listen to our interview with Charlie here: https://changelingthepodcast.com/podcast/episode-12-harbingers-of-winter-with-charlie-cantrell/. Finally, if you’re into Mage and want to hear about that game’s finale book Ascension, Mage: the Podcast has an informative episode on just that very topic: https://magethepodcast.com/tomes-of-magick-ascension/. Ask ye and the digisphere shall provide.

As for ourselves…!
