    About the adventure

    Every changeling in Arcadia is either currently being held captive by their Keeper, or is making a break for the door . . . except The Creeping Vines. As Changeling thieves-for-hire, The Vines make their living by doing the one thing The Gentry cannot: outright stealing from one another. When choice words and trickery fails to fell the contract holding a Title in place, who you gonna call? Prized tokens, pieces of art, beloved children, food from their mouth, there is nothing The Vines can’t steal. Their value is so acknowledged among the True Fae that the few times they’ve been caught, the only punishment inflicted was a revenge job against whoever sent them there to begin with. Other Changelings might not like what they do, but hey, it’s a living! This next job, however, might be their last. “You’ll never have to work again” is still technically true if you die during the process.

    Gameplay details

    Fun, engaging roleplay can only happen in a safe space, so I use the following tools before and during gameplay: The Digital RPG Consent Checklist, Lines & Veils, Open Table, Breaks I'll get everyone's Lines & Veils along with their checklist before, then send out a memo outlining what is encouraged, what isn't appropriate, plus player inclusion guidelines to avoid misgendering and other uncomfortable interactions. The gameplay for this one-shot revolves around pulling off a particularly dangerous True Fae heist, with the following stages: - The Prep - The Heist - The Getaway How creative and successful you are at each step will affect the next-- If you're a meticulous group, you get the satisfaction of disarming traps and sneaking past the dragon. If you prefer to rush in, you'll get a hell of a fight!
