Settings & Setting Elements

Chimera in Autumn - Physical interactions of Chimera with the Autumn World.

Realms & Spirits - In theory Changelings may enter the Umbra and interact with Spirits. This is a brief clarification of how the Realms affect Spirits.

Realms & Chimera - A clarification of how various Realms interact with Chimera, particularly in the Dreaming. Both this topic and the Realms & Spirits one were at one time hotly debated.


Canon Incompatible

New/Revised Kiths, Adhenes, Gallain, etc.

Lycanthrops - Were-creatures as a type of fae. A perspective different than that presented in either Werewolf: the Apocalypse, or the Changeling core book.

Powers

Dark (Ages) Arts - Changeling Arts and Realms, now with a Dark Ages: Fae twist. Also includes alot of other changes to the setting.

Dark (Ages) Arts (v2) - Changeling Arts and Realms, now with a Dark Ages: Fae twist. By popular demand this version is alot more canon compatible.

Rules

Ambient Glamour - Alternate methods for Changelings to gain Glamour, in this case from the environment rather than from specific individual humans.

Settings & Setting Elements

True Chrysalis - What if Changelings weren't fae spirits posessing human hosts? What if they were something different?

Shadows of a Dream - What if the Changeling Way ritual never became popular? Or the Resurgance? What if Fae were only occasional visitors to the Autumn World and instead Kinain played a greater role?

Recommended Reading

Background

Mythic History: Conquest of Ireland - A short summary of the peopling of Ireland by various mythical groups, including the Formorians, Firbolg, and Tuatha De Danann.

Links

Scattered Dreams - These pages pretty thorough introduction to many of the powers, character types, and other concepts involved involved in the Changeling universe. Also a handy reference guide.

The Right to Dream - The Right to Dream contains many supplimental rules and character sheets. But more importantly it contains quite a bit of erreta and some developer commentary for various officially published books.
