The following documents are the second drafts of settings, history, and mechanics for the MES Changeling the Lost chronicle starting in 2013. Many have received a few modifications over the past couple months since they were first released. There is also a wholly new settings document as of today about a semi-secret Changeling order. Take a look!
Changeling the Lost
What Do the PCs Know?
In the 2013 chronicle, the Lost understand
certain truths about the True Fae. Each court
has its own opinions and perspectives, but there
are three key “truths” about the Fae that any
character who has been a part of changeling
society will know. The truths are listed here,
followed by the prevailing opinions and thoughts
among the four seasonal courts.
The Gentry Assume Many Disguises
It’s generally understood among the Lost

different appearances and may behave in
completely different fashions. This said, the
Patriarch’s golden crown and authoritative
nature will always betray him. These deceptions
make the Gentry dangerous to unaware
changelings, but an informed fae learns to
recognize the behaviors and tells of at very least
their own Keeper.
