Also: the question about Kithbook Merits remains unanswered.

No Sheets yet, and yes, you can use kithbook merits and flaws if they make sense.

I figured I'll run the new cantrips system by you guys before I make anything offical.


-The base amount of dice for a cantrip is Attribute+Art being used.
-Cantrip difficulty will now be based on the individual Art used, ranging from 6-9, like most other WoD powers.
-Realm no longer adds to your dice pool; you need them to actually use your Cantrips effectively. You can use a Cantrip that has more dots in a Realm then you currently have, but it imposes a dice pool penalty equal to the rank you need.
-You only need to spend a glamour point in a Cantrip if you want to use a modifier realm. You don't need to spend them to affect mortals, autum people, using a cantrip without a bunk, etc etc.
-You can spend Glamour points to add dice to your Cantrip dice pool. You can no longer lower the difficulty with them.
-Bunks add to your dice pool equal to the level of Bunk used.
-There is no 'Wryd', you have the option of using any cantrip, or even revealing your Fae Mein to anyone, but not without consiqunces...
-You no longer have to overcome the Blanality of anybody, though it can interfere with some Cantrips. When an unenchanted mortal or autum person sees you doing something obviously supernatural, his Blanality is rolled with successes becoming points of Temporary Blanality to be inflicted on your character. This will increase with the number of witnesses to your folly.

What this all means is that it is, overall, much easier to use your Cantrips. With bunks and Glamour, they can be very powerful too. But throwing them around willy-nilly increases your chances of being seen by a sleeper, and getting smacked with Blanality. It's similar to the Mage system, now that I think of it, only Blanality isn't as unpredicable as paradox....

In any case, opinions?

It does seem to make a moderately-high Banality a lot less crippling for a changeling who wants to cast magic.  (On the other hand, difficulties higher than 5 scare me -- WoD dice hate me so very, very much.)

And I'm all for not having to spend Glamour, considering how hard it is to get the stuff.

Does this make changelings too good?  I have no idea.

With the merit KITHKIN from the mage system it says I can learn cantrips as a semi-mortal how would that work for my character as a mortal? Also I would like to have a fae in the family what sort would naturally be good for a prostitute with few morals and a horney streak? I was thinking a Satyre but would like some opinions on this for role-playing so it would be for fun KITHKIN (*insert changeling type*).

Could I add a new MERIT or FLAW based on how its taken I was thinking callin it FAE ATTRACTOR. Would make her appealing to one kind of Fae maybe lowering her Banality a little to one kind of changeling for a MERIT of 1 pt.. After all it is a double edged sword can also raise her vulnerability to their powers. As a FLAW I thought the GM could choose the changeling type. So could be either a MERIT or FLAW the former they generally nice fae and the later for generally bad fae. I was thinking with the sort she's from the line of as a MERIT so Satyres would really like her. LIKE SHE WOULD MIND. lol

Oh can changelings get mortal diseases I don't want to give Fae lovers AIDS or something else unpleasant?

I think changelings can get diseases (at least, nothing gives them special resistance).  Which could be bad, since AIDS is pretty damn banal.

By the way, Creeper, the merit Sex Appeal normally reduces the difficulty of all Charisma and Appearance rolls.  Shall I assume that this does not apply for cantrips based on those attributes?  (In some cases, like Aphrodisia, it would make sense for it to apply, but I think it might be too powerful if it did.)

No, merits do not directly reduce the difficulty of Cantrips. They may make it easier to set them up, but they do not effect their use.

PM is fine Ida.

I'd also like all players to answer a few questions along with their character sheets.

1. What are your goals as a player? What do you want your character to do or experience?

2. What are your Character's goals? What does he or she want?

3. What paticular Genre do you want for this game? A Mystery? An Adventure? How much sex? Little? A lot? When it makes sense for the plot?

4. Anything you want to add?

Oh, and please list your Freebie point spending.

PRELUDE: Born 18 years ago in the city she grew up here all her life in the less prosperous parts of the city, hell thats too nice a term. Jasmine was lucky she had two parents and several brothers and sisters, and they didn't hit her except when she deserved it. Jasmine did ok in school but was a little wild, she lost her virginity at 13 to a 19 year old guy and made it alot with girls. Her parents found all this out a year ago and kicked her out then she started pulling tricks to survive, did some internet porn movies, got into drugs but nothing hard and caught a really nasty form of HIV from a Nigerian client, she herself is not sick but can give it to others easily. Jasmine loves sex and hates condoms, uses them if the clients wants to but will do it bareback. Jasmine isn't stupid she had herself fixed with the help of her pimp-lady a year ago. Right now she takes clients largely off internet adverstising as an escourt with modest rates, works the streets when she feels like it and has the eye for other women that are physically mature enough to be fun.  :-*


Alrighty, I'm unfamiliar with the Kind Face and Twitch merits and flaws, so you'll have to explain them to me.

If your character suffers no ill effect from being infected, that would only be a 1-point flaw.

There's no need for a morality system, I don't use humanity in my games.

Kind Face reduces difficulties by 1 when a gentle natured face would affect a social roll. Not intimidate but seduction it would most likely.

Twitch is a nervous thing she does. Like if someone plays with their hair or bites there nails she plays with her antique rosary.

I'm going to redo her anyway.

APPEARANCE
     Has dark black hair and dark brown eyes, full pouty lips and a wicked figure a bit more voluptuous kind of like almost any woman that people find appealing walking down the street, her skin is lightly brown and has a very gentle quality making her very approachable. Her voice is very arresting and almost magical most people find her best feature not to say the rest of her is bad.  :-* Her dress tends to be rather conservative but stylish even when working, is if nothing a classy prostitute of course that just adds to her appeal to many. Not to say she does not have little black dresses and working clothes but is never slutty. Her make up is modest and her grooming impeccible, is clean shaven and laser treated to have no unecessary body hair save her well kept shoulder length hair is a stylish design if simple. Her only noticeable feature is a small tattoo on her right breast, two roses with J in the middle. All her pimp-ladies women get it and the tattoo is very small so it doesn't unduly affect her appearance. She's 19 years old.

PRELUDE
     Not much to say she grew up in the city to hard working poor but proud parents her father a taxi driver and her mother a bathroom attendant, did ok in school even if they were crappy and ended up working as a stripper with fake ID at age 16 before hooking up with a gorgeous black woman that offered her escort work then when she turned 18 she did some porn shoots. It all paid well and she likes the work. Hell she likes sex so why not get paid for it? Over the years she has gained a rep as a top notch classy prostitute if not a call girl doesn't at least work the streets sure may do better bars and clubs but with her own website and being on key sites all over the internet she gets clients easy enough, even some women. Life is pretty good. She takes a class at the local university each term (whatever catches her fancy) and reads alot mostly serious non-fiction books so she can learn something, is not a bad student just likes to keep busy. Her parents are not that angry at her the city life is hard at least she found a nitch and is making a living at least unlike her three older brothers she's not selling drugs or in violent crime and she seems careful. She actually has a rather large brokerage account invested for strong dividend income and with solid companies, bonds and CD's but lives more modestly so she can invest more, she would like to earn enough so she never has to work again and maybe travel by the time she's 40. Now she is just interested in getting by and ahead.

1. What are your goals as a player? What do you want your character to do or experience? Have fun and meet all the wierdos in the group at some point.

2. What are your Character's goals? What does he or she want? Besides surviving and making money, not sure she is living day to day but maybe make enough money to live somewhere nicer maybe work at a legal brothel like the Bunny Ranch in Nevada.

3. What paticular Genre do you want for this game? A Mystery? An Adventure? How much sex? Little? A lot? When it makes sense for the plot? Hummmm maybe Hentai. She's a promiscuous whore so sex is a biggy for her.

4. Anything you want to add? Not right now.

Appearance:
Melissa is slender, graceful and shapely, standing around 5'3".  Her hair is raven black, usually tied back into a loose ponytail that hangs about halfway down her back, often with a pen helping to hold it in place.  Her eyes are an amazing shade of violet, set in a lovely face with a delightful smile.  Melissa usually dresses tastefully but with the intent of showing off; she likes jean shorts or skirts, often with a halter or other backless top, although in truth she looks good in anything (or nothing).

In her fae mien, the logic behind Melissa's choice of clothing becomes obvious.  She sports a beautiful pair of butterly wings, patterned in bright red, orange, and blue; a pair of four-inch antennae poke out of her head.  Her chimerical clothing is usually a bit fancier than the mundane; her favorite is a long, backless dress in dark blue and purple, slit up to mid-thigh for ease of motion.  The pen she wears in her hair is actually a chimerical dagger, although she would hate to actually use it.

Background:
Always a lovely girl with a wonderful voice, Melissa's Chrysalis at age 15 only made her more fun-loving.  Outgoing and vivacious, Melissa can and will get along with just about anyone, and usually doesn't lack for people to get along with.  She isn't just trying to be polite -- she really likes everybody.  Unable to tell the straight truth, Melissa usually couches her Pooka-ese in exaggerations or polite questions.
Melissa has lived in Talis Canyon for most of her life.  Now 19, she currently attends a local university, majoring in music theory; she lives in a small studio apartment not far from campus, and hopes to someday make a career as a singer.  (She certainly has the talent for it -- her voice is postively gorgeous.)  Lately she has been trying to counsel her friend Michael, a talented young pianist who seems to frequently lack confidence in his work (and in himself in general).
Melissa never seems to lack for suitors, both on campus and among the fae.  It's not just her beauty or her lovable personality (though she certainly has both), and it's not that she acts especially like a slut (though she has had no shortage of partners and is very skilled indeed, not to mention flexible), and it's unclear whether she's even fully conscious of it, but something about her manner just radiates sexiness.  The sway of her hips attracts eyes like moths to the flame; she can break hearts and harden cocks with a wink, a grin, or a whisper.  It doesn't exactly help that Melissa is a shameless flirt -- she doesn't intend to cause trouble, but things generally seem to work out in the end.

Answers to Mandatory Questions:
1. I'd like to get used to the Changeling game (which is why Melissa's background is weighted heavily in the direction of mortal rather than fae affairs).  Melissa is not the sort to provoke much combat (although it could happen); most of her interactions are likely to be the pleasant kind.

2. Melissa wants to finish college, to become a professional singer, and to generally enjoy life to the fullest.  And to make new friends -- you can never have too many friends.

3. Adventure.  Plenty of sex -- Melissa's set of Merits practically demands it.

4. I believe Ajoxer was interested in having his character (when completed) co-exist with mine, a potentially amusing situation if ever there was one.  (The presence of a stronger fighter could make combat a more reasonable option, too.)

Maybe she can teach Pleasure Boxx a sexy cantrip or two? She is a Kithkin after all.

I did a little tweaking I gave her Academics of one and made her a casual student at the university maybe they could end up in a class together how about something like Introduction to Science with Lab (5 Credit Hours), she wouldn't mind 1 Dot in Science after all.

Just mildly so if you noticed, maybe some marijuana every day to loosen up or a bit of Ecstacy mostly in her case her difficulties go up a point is she's not taken a dose on a given day of something. Its not like she a crack-whore! Doesn't matter that much if she learns mojo tricks or not just wondering. There are levels of addiction 2 points she would need to be high all the time she just need to keep the edge off so to speak.

Oh, it's mild all right (is habitual use of marijuana even worth a point?), but her lifestyle in general just doesn't lend itself to a low Banality.

But, given that cantrips don't cost Glamour under Creeper's system, a few dots in an Art could be very good for you (since you don't have the problem kinain normally have, where they need a changeling's help to get them a Glamour refill just to use their powers).  I don't know how personal Banality impacts a kinain's ability to learn cantrips...

Well she's not against Ecstacy or other drugs of a recreational nature, but must have one every day or difficulties go up 1 point so is a drawback. A small one.

APPEARANCE
     Has dark black hair and dark brown eyes, full pouty lips and a wicked figure a bit more voluptuous kind of like almost any woman that people find appealing walking down the street, her skin is lightly brown and has a very gentle quality making her very approachable. Her voice is very arresting and almost magical most people find her best feature not to say the rest of her is bad.  :-* Her dress tends to be rather conservative but stylish even when working, is if nothing a classy prostitute of course that just adds to her appeal to many. Not to say she does not have little black dresses and working clothes but is never slutty. Her make up is modest and her grooming impeccible, is clean shaven and laser treated to have no unecessary body hair save her well kept shoulder length hair is a stylish design if simple. Her only noticeable feature is a small tattoo on her right breast, two roses with J in the middle. All her pimp-ladies women get it and the tattoo is very small so it doesn't unduly affect her appearance. She's 19 years old.

PRELUDE
     Not much to say she grew up in the city to hard working poor but proud parents, did ok in school even if they were crappy and ended up working as a stripper with fake ID at age 16 before hooking up with a gorgeous black woman that offered her escort work then when she turned 18 she did some porn shoots. It all paid well and she likes the work. Hell she likes sex so why not get paid for it? Over the years she has gained a rep as a top notch classy prostitute if not a call girl doesn't at least work the streets sure may do better bars and clubs but with her own website and being on key sites all over the internet she gets clients easy enough, even some women. Life is pretty good. She takes a class at the local university each term and reads alot, is not a bad student just likes to keep busy. Her parents are not that angry at her the city life is hard at least she found a nitch and is making a living. She actually has a rather large brokerage account invested for strong dividend income and with solid companies, bonds and CD's but lives more modestly so she can invest more, she would like to earn enough so she never has to work again and maybe travel by the time she's 40. Now she is just interested in getting by and ahead.

1. What are your goals as a player? What do you want your character to do or experience? Have fun and meet all the wierdos in the group at some point.

2. What are your Character's goals? What does he or she want? Besides surviving and making money, not sure she is living day to day but maybe make enough money to live somewhere nicer maybe work at a legal brothel like the Bunny Ranch in Nevada.

3. What paticular Genre do you want for this game? A Mystery? An Adventure? How much sex? Little? A lot? When it makes sense for the plot? Hummmm maybe Hentai. She's a promiscuous whore so sex is a biggy for her.

4. Anything you want to add? Not right now.


Hmm, I'm going to disallow that Twitch flaw. It seems far more like a personality trait then a flaw. Why is she, as you said, a 'promiscuous whore'? What made her pick up that sort of life? What jobs did her parents have? What class is she taking at the university? What does she like to read? Any brothers or sisters? Why do her parents accept their daughter taking up such a hazardus profession?

Appearance:
Melissa is slender, graceful and shapely, standing around 5'3".  Her hair is raven black, usually tied back into a loose ponytail that hangs about halfway down her back, often with a pen helping to hold it in place.  Her eyes are an amazing shade of violet, set in a lovely face with a delightful smile.  Melissa usually dresses tastefully but with the intent of showing off; she likes jean shorts or skirts, often with a halter or other backless top, although in truth she looks good in anything (or nothing).

In her fae mien, the logic behind Melissa's choice of clothing becomes obvious.  She sports a beautiful pair of butterly wings, patterned in bright red, orange, and blue; a pair of four-inch antennae poke out of her head.  Her chimerical clothing is usually a bit fancier than the mundane; her favorite is a long, backless dress in dark blue and purple, slit up to mid-thigh for ease of motion.  The pen she wears in her hair is actually a chimerical dagger, although she would hate to actually use it.

Background:
Always a lovely girl with a wonderful voice, Melissa's Chrysalis at age 15 only made her more fun-loving.  Outgoing and vivacious, Melissa can and will get along with just about anyone, and usually doesn't lack for people to get along with.  She isn't just trying to be polite -- she really likes everybody.  Unable to tell the straight truth, Melissa usually couches her Pooka-ese in exaggerations or polite questions.
Melissa has lived in Talis Canyon for most of her life.  Now 19, she currently attends a local university, majoring in music theory; she lives in a small studio apartment not far from campus, and hopes to someday make a career as a singer.  (She certainly has the talent for it -- her voice is postively gorgeous.)  Lately she has been trying to counsel her friend Michael, a talented young pianist who seems to frequently lack confidence in his work (and in himself in general).
Melissa never seems to lack for suitors, both on campus and among the fae.  It's not just her beauty or her lovable personality (though she certainly has both), and it's not that she acts especially like a slut (though she has had no shortage of partners and is very skilled indeed, not to mention flexible), and it's unclear whether she's even fully conscious of it, but something about her manner just radiates sexiness.  The sway of her hips attracts eyes like moths to the flame; she can break hearts and harden cocks with a wink, a grin, or a whisper.  It doesn't exactly help that Melissa is a shameless flirt -- she doesn't intend to cause trouble, but things generally seem to work out in the end.

Answers to Mandatory Questions:
1. I'd like to get used to the Changeling game (which is why Melissa's background is weighted heavily in the direction of mortal rather than fae affairs).  Melissa is not the sort to provoke much combat (although it could happen); most of her interactions are likely to be the pleasant kind.

2. Melissa wants to finish college, to become a professional singer, and to generally enjoy life to the fullest.  And to make new friends -- you can never have too many friends.

3. Adventure.  Plenty of sex -- Melissa's set of Merits practically demands it.

4. I believe Ajoxer was interested in having his character (when completed) co-exist with mine, a potentially amusing situation if ever there was one.  (The presence of a stronger fighter could make combat a more reasonable option, too.)

Please people, keep in mind that I do not have access to anything more then the core changeling book. I do not know what the Aphrodisa Art is, or your treasure, or a number of your merits (though I can guess). Please list the mechanics of ANYTHING not in the Core.

Who are Melissa's parents? What do they do? Any brothers and sisters? Is there any place she practices singing regularly? What are her thoughts about her Unseelie ruler? About the rash increase in Nerosis in the area?
