    I'm sorry, I don't think I'm able to reconnect with this game. I'm going to have to drop out. Thanks for understanding.

    Understood.

    @ER and Ladorak: I am going to pause things for a moment to ask how we want to proceed. Erulasto has been MIA for a little under a month, and though I am optimistic he may return, this drops us down to two players. I am happy to re-recruit and/or reach out to the other player who submitted a character, but do we want to shoot for a retcon, or have someone take over Imere, or just some artful writing of people on and off stage... or do we just want to stick with potentially two players???

    I’m OK with either. I mean, I’m enjoying the particular scene I’m doing but I get that we should probably join back up. That being said, there was a CtL thread that popped up the other day; maybe they would be interested?

    And you know, just to make things interesting...I think I will take the Dramatic Failure for a beat.
    Will that change the current IC post, or should I respond first to that?

    Go ahead and respond first. I'll give you the beat. Would you link me the changeling thread? I see the Goblin Queens one, which isn't exactly the game we are running... and I'm not sure I should derail that thread by posting "Hey I have this other Changeling game for those interested". Though I suppose I could PM the OP.

    So my thought is, I will re-recruit at least one new player to the game, reviving our old recruitment thread. I will introduce the new player characters into the game, but not retcon what has already happened, and will simply turn Imere into an NPC till I can appropriately write her off stage.

    However, I will not start this process till I have the approval of both active players. So, please give me feedback.

    And, btw, thank you for the patience. It's been a busy couple of days for me

    Good. My plan would be to make them two changelings fresh off of an escape from the Hedge. They'd have some sort of connection to each other, which would make it easier to integrate two new PCs, should we actually get two interested players.

    Will wait for Ladorak's feedback before starting the recruitment.

    ER, see my IC response.

    Thank you for the patience you two! Also, it doesn't look like the recruitment thread is getting many bites, please let me know if you know of anyone on the forum who you want to recommend, or please reach out to them and show them the recruitment thread. Any feedback would be appreciated.

    @ER: Would you mind including Sebastian's back story in to the same post of the OOC thread that has his character sheet. So you don't have to go dig it up now, it's in the spoiler below. This way I don't have to go hunting for it again and it will be in a place that is at least logical to me

    Spoiler: Sebastian's Backgroung
    Show
    Before the Fae
    Sebastian Rivers was a librarian who attracted the attention of a Fae who was attracted to the stories of the library and had a special propensity for desiring untold stories. He worked at a library on the south coast of England, though there is now very little of that world left in him beyond an appreciation for the BBC and a slight accent. He remembers virtually none of that life, except that it was routine and very asocial, strangely enough. His patrons were very taciturn most of the time and it suited him just fine.

    The Keeper and the Durance
    One of the gentry found him after he took a feather from one of the ravens who had escaped from the Hedge. Sebastian had a curious anachronistic pleasure in using tools of bygone eras, and the plume was a perfect quill. The gentry tracked him to his door and, after circling the house three times counter clockwise entered, offering him a chance to enter a world where he would be happy all the days of his life and never interact with a waking soul, should that be his desire. After seeing the library of the Fae, he could not resist. He accepted the bargain.

    The gentry’s promise was kept. He would have been happy the days of his life, but he saw no days. He never interacted with a waking soul, for he encountered all through dreams. On his Keeper’s behest, he stole novels unwritten from the mind’s of sleepers, and wrote them for his library. If he failed, he was torn - as he had once torn the quill from the bird. He escaped by manipulating his way through the dreams, crafting nightmares to mask his jumping until he found a passage of Horn. The only thing in his possession: the Ledger of the Library.

    Who Are You Now?
    Now, he appears more or less similar. Longish curly hair, a distant and somewhat dreamy look, and decidedly bookish appearance. His Mask bleeds the scent of old books, ink, and well used libraries sometimes. His mein possesses skin the colour of used pages, eyes and lips the black of fresh India ink. On occasion his limbs will show a faint pulse of inky blood below the surface. He spends much of his time in the waking world at tourist traps of New Orleans where he can watch a huge variety of people. He is still extremely socially anxious for the most part but he has vowed to change his life after his experience in Arcadia. He survives in the mundane world by writing crossword puzzles for publication, a hobby that likewise seems to have come from his previous life. The rest of his time is spent tending to his own library, one of the best in the Freehold.

    Fears
    What an Autumn Courtier fears is a truly terrific thing indeed but for Sebastian it is somewhat “mundane.” He fears being unable to make a meaningful connection with other people - in succumbing to his fears and anxietirs and ending up conpletely alone.

    What Are You Known For in the Freehold
    His library. His library is his home, a tower in the Hedge ringed with books. Some were bargained from dreamers (inverting his experience in the Durance), others acquired by mundane methods. It is categoric on matters of the occult, which makes him very popular with the Autumn Court. The top floor contains the Ledger, which is rubricated with checks where he has found certain sleepers and “made amends” for his Keeper’s thefts.

    Who Is Your Character Most Loyal To?
    (Name pending), a cashier at the Cafe Du Monde. When he stumbled out of the Hedge into the late night air, she sat him down and gave him a cup of coffee, before he could pay. They talked, very briefly, and now he watches her whenever he is at the cafe. When he has extra from a comics sale, he makes sure to tip well and she is the only person who he can actually manage something approaching a real (though limited) conversation with. He knows virtually nothing about her, and vice versa, but she is what keeps him tethered to humanity.

    The Fetch
    I do not fully know yet. More pending.

    My backup plan if “mundane intimidation” failed was to scour away my Mask and Reap him so...glad it didn’t come to that! I will take a drop of the kid’s fear, though, to soften him up a bit but I think he’ll be on his way out.

    There is nothing clever here with Tom not understanding. Perhaps I am wrong, but I don't think Sebastian ever explained who Arthur Pengrove was, and he only decided to find the Changeling after doing research once the others had already left. Let me know if I am missing something though

    Just gonna give Sebastian a quick Int+Investigation roll to see how he mulls things over, and to keep things moving (5d10)[3][7][6][8][7](31) and 10 again (5d10)[5][6][2][3][8](24)

    Sebastian does have the Informed Hallow's Eve contract, which Sebastian may use depending on how the result goes.


    EDIT: So Sebastian gets one success. The story of Hallow's Eve Contract that Reggy tells is strikingly similar to what he read during his research, visa vi post 212 of the IC thread.

    Just as a heads up, I have had the great idea of posting an "ad" on the Onyx Path Forum in the Recruitment for PBP section, seeing if we can't find anyone interested to come over. I am waiting for approval to post in the forum, which is hopefully not going to take too long.

    Thank you for the patience with everything.

    Welcome Ohiska, and thank you for joining us. I will have something up in the IC thread shortly. We will be starting with Songbird visiting his friend, the elderly Ben in the Garden District, when he notices something rather odd happening in one of the neighboring houses.

    I think we will stick with Songbird having some small property in the French Quarter, even if it is not secure or all that nice.

    Hey there and welcome!

    And hello to the thread once more. Benno has uncanny timing messaging me the exact moment I can get back to posting! I had gotten sick again (perils of working in education, I guess) but should be good now.

    And Neil Gaiman quotes! Seeing that made me happy. Lucien’s library is my model for Sebastian’s collection of dreaming stories.

    Haha! I'm sorry you were not feeling well ER, and feel better. I think for me a lot of Gaiman's work inspires my approach to Changeling. The first CtL game I tried to get off was very focused on the importance of Dreams and Oneiromancy (too lazy ATM to double check my spelling), and it was very Sandman influenced.

    But American Gods, The Ocean at the End of the Lane, Sandman, Coreline... I mean almost everything he's famous for fits well with the game.
