    About the adventure

    This story started with you getting the attention of one of them. Somehow either through a deal, a mistake, or just being in the wrong place at the wrong time, you got the attention of the fae. Yes they are real, but these are not the fairys that you grew up watching on disney cartoons. These are the true fae, the gentry, the others. They are creatures utterly alien to our world, with the power of gods & a twisted sense of morality that is nowhere near human. Then they took you ... maybe for amusement, punishment, or other unknown reasons. You where dragged through the thorns of the hedge, maybe kicking & screaming.....maybe without realizing it. They took you to the land of beautiful madness, arcadia, the home of the fae. But that place......changed you. Made you less human, more like them. Maybe it was the food & drink, or just being amongst so much of their magic. The cruelest of the others may have even reshaped you to suit their needs. But change you did, & your memories changed with you. And you almost forgot what it was like to be human. Until you remembered, & escaped. Every tale of escape from arcadia is different, but they all share the one central need to return home. But things are different now that your back, the places & times may or may not have changed, but nothing will be the same again. Your half human, half fae, a changeling who must try to rebuild or retake their lost lives. But the others are still there in the hedge, in the realm beyond, looking for you. They want what they claimed from you, & will stop at nothing to take it back. Can you survive lost in two worlds? One foot in the mortal world & the other in the fae realm? Or will you find yourself fading away into dreams, or dragged back into the hedge once more?

    Additional Details

    How to prepare

    A discord account with quality microphone that allows for clear communication & an environment without alot of background noise while we are in session. A stable internet connection. A PC that can meet the requirements to run Foundry Virtual Tabletop. Familiarity with the Changeling the Lost 2e rule set is helpful but not required.

    What I provide

    I will host the game with Foundry VTT & will have all rules input ahead of time for this game so you have quick access. I will also create token images for all characters.

    Gameplay details

    The players group is currently living in an old lake house along the coast, & is in the process of proving themselves to the freehold. This game is about newly escaped changelings trying to rebuild their lives in the city of Queens River Michigan, a fictional city that will have various challenges both mortal & fae in nature. Challenges will vary from how you go about adjusting to the mortal world again, to dealing with hobs & other fae threats from the hedge. We use theatre of the mind for this game, but you will have background regional maps that represent the city of Queens River & also the various areas of the hedge you explore/learn about. Most sessions will be a mixture of investigation, role playing & combat depending on where the current plot line is going. Combat is also very dangerous & realistic, so characters becoming injured or close to death isnt impossible. Character deaths are uncommon but possible, depending on the actions of the party. These games are very high role play focused, so that will always take priority over combat & mechanics. Content Warning : Descriptions of supernatural murder & horror(which may or may not occur to player characters). Violence. Obscene/vulgar language(cursing) Adult themes(sex, drinking, criminal activity) Sexual content will always fade to black if it occurs, & will never occur between player characters unless all involved players consent. Lines & veils will also be honored & set up ahead of the chronicle via discord chat, so that I can fine tune any plot content to avoid things players may not want to face in game. Additionally, I am always online via my discord both during & outside of game should you need to bring something to my attention, whether thats a veil thats being approached too close or something makes you uncomfortable.

    How will character creation work

    Character generation will occur during a zero session with everyone present. This is as much to make sure we all mesh as a group of people as it is to make the characters & backgrounds for each of them. We will also discuss lines & veils for the game(please Private message me ahead of time if your uncomfortable with expressing these in a live chat). Also any special rules the game will include. Afterwards communication & further background info will be conducted with everyone via a discord channel on the server I use. For those that may join the game later after we start, I will do a 1 on 1 zero session to make your character with you, or you have the option of trying out the game as a hobgoblin character that may be assisting the players. No character's will be approved prior to the zero session. This includes pre-generated characters, & all players will be required to meet the same character creation expectations of the table, which may vary from group to group.
