episode 83 — changeling 20: the new stuff

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 new material in this one. There’s a lot that we could have covered in that description, but we’re sticking with some of the big items overall: the kith creation system, Revelry, new Thallain. Everything that builds on previous editions’ systems will be covered in the third and final episode of this set, on the changes in the edition. For now, these are just some ruminations and opinions on the unexpected elements that stand out to us.

—Mary Shelley, Frankenstein
