Welcome!

Earlier in the thread, I made a post indicating some of the differences between the two editions. Most stuff remains the same. The 2e book only introduces about 12 kiths but recreating a playmate would be fairly easy.

Also, just so you are aware, the standard four seasonal courts exist in Winterland, but they are somewhat modified to fit the Christmas theme. Iíll be posting all about them in a day or two (just been kind of busy).

Looking forward to it! My court association is tentative pending learning about the differences, but other than that I think I'm all set.

Aw man, if I had the brainpower to learn the new system (and the time for it) I'd apply in a heartbeat! This looks awesome!

Danshi it isn’t a hard system to pick up and is incredibly narrative which is what I like about the storyteller system it’s built on. I say jump in!

How on the (potentially shiny red) nose are these Christmas themes supposed to be?

Looking at a Reindeer brute type or A Nutcracker looking mannequin soldier or Some kind of ogre.

Your kith and seeming donít specifically need to be Christmas themed. Itís more about the setting and what the characters will be doing. Your changelingís appearance doesnít need to be tied to Christmas at all, unless thatís what you want to do.

It was more of a "How far am I allowed to take this?" not a "How on theme do I need to be?".

I do need to do some reading to figure out details.

Lol, you can go as far with it as youíd like. Most people seem to be going all in with the concept, which is great. But Iím also fine with someone playing a newcomer to Winterland who sees all the Christmas stuff and thinks, really?

Iím planning to post info about Winterland very soon, just been really busy since The Holidays.

WIP App
Name: Rudy
Seeming: Beast
Kith: Custom (I was thinking he is a Guide, So bonus to Survival while guiding others through the Hedge. Special Ability TBD)
Personality: Gruff and caring
Appearance: Reindeer horns, big, and burly.
Background: New York City cab driver. Taken by Faeries to pull a sleigh back and forth through the Hedge. Escaped by snapping his Silver Thread and goring the hobgoblin driver to death.


Pretty basic at this point. I need to expand on basically everything.

Hey everyone,

I think that I’m gonna call it. Haven’t been able to drum up enough players. I don’t want to keep people waiting months for a game that may not happen. Sorry to disappoint those who have shown interest. I may try to advertise for this game later this year, closer to the holidays. ��

Might just be the seasonal theme that's putting people off? PbP games tend to be a bit slower, so a christmas game is probably going to just barely get started by the time christmas is done and dusted.

Yeah, I've been in games that run 2 hrs at a con, but took 6 months to a year to finish on site.

@Shaq
I only say this post today when you are closing up shop, If you do decide to run a game of it I would be interested. I have never actually played CtL but have read a goodly amount of 1st ed and played a bit of CtD from OWoD. The lighter aspect that you suggested seems a little more in the spirit of CtD but with the experience and mechanics that years of playtesting can provide. Nice!
