What is Changeling?
Changeling: the Lost is one of the story settings available for the World of Darkness D10 Storyteller system. It takes place in Modern times, but everything that makes our world feel scary, dark, depressing or crappy is magnified ten-fold. Underneath the veil of the world there are Supernatural beings that are lurking, Changelings are just one of them. Mages, Vampires, Werewolves, Ghosts, Hunters and more fester like a blister on the skin of the world. They are often the forces behind the strangeness that are happening, but normal people usually manage to stay blind to what is really going on. Honestly, most people just don’t know how to cope so they ignore it or their brains rewrite what they saw.
You were like that once, at least you are pretty sure you were. Perhaps you still wish for that blissful ignorance? Maybe you are happy you can see the terrors that lurk behind the curtains now, better to know what you are facing, right? Either way, you are now one of the Supernatural types. You were swept away to the land ruled by the Gentry, also known as the True Fae. You or someone you know entered into a contract which was the cost of your existence, you peeked their interest with a talent or pissed one off, however it happened you got spirited away. You were put into service for your Fae overlords, whatever it was they desired of you. Their world makes little sense, the laws of nature are constantly in flux and the demands put on you are anything but normal. To survive you are forced to change and accept the reality around you. As you accept these things you are rewoven by the energies of Arcadia. Eventually your service ended, escape or freed, you return to the human world. The True Fae are fickle beings, even if they let you go it doesn’t mean they won’t want you back. For now you must remember how to live in what you thought was a concrete world. In your changed form you must find if there is still a place for you in this world that you once knew as your own?
