episode 84 — changeling 20: the changes

And so we come to the third part of this trilogy, wherein we talk about changes to this edition. There are hundreds of little tweaks and adjustments to be found in the Changeling 20th Anniversary corebook, but we’re focusing on a dozen of the most significant that stand out to us. (Slight spoiler: there’s another big one that we realized after the fact we didn’t talk about it… but luckily, it will apply in an upcoming episode as well.) We’re looking at retconned metaplot, restructured magic systems, alternative ways of thinking about different groups of fae, and more. It’s not that these three episodes have been the most comprehensive look possible at this edition and what it represents—it’s just the most comprehensive we could bring ourselves to get through.

If you need the first two episodes in the series, or to purchase the corebook itself:

Some other bits that found passing or heavy mention in this episode include:

Lastly, the places you can bother us gently and politely:

Josh Hillerup (any pronoun) would have liked to see the Concordia map re-drawn with lines that made sense.
Pooka G (any pronoun/they) could have gotten on board with the pages of each chapter having their own musky aroma.

And so the days float through my eyes
But still the days seem the same
And these children that you spit on
As they try to change their worlds
Are immune to your consultations
They’re quite aware of what they’re goin’ through.

—David Bowie, “Changes”
