Regaining Glamour

There are two ways to gain temporary glamour: resting at a freehold or through epiphany.

Freehold

Sleeping overnight in a freehold will restore one point of temporary glamour. You must have permission of a freehold's owner to harvest Glamour from it. If you wish to regain temporary glamour at a freehold send your request to fae staff and have the owner of the freehold you want to use send @mail to fae staff verifying that you have their permission. You can either ask the owner each time you want to use the freehold or get blanket permission to use the freehold at will. It is entirely up to freehold owners who they allow to harvest glamour from their freehold and when.

You may never increase your temporary glamour above your permanent glamour value through rest at a freehold.

Epiphany

Ravaging, Rapture, Reverie, Rhapsody. Rapture rules are as in the book. If you have the Dreamers background, you may attempt to Ravage or Reverie them periodically, also as described in the book. Dreamers who are repeatedly Ravaged may eventually lose their ability to be Dreamers. You may also attempt to perform Rhapsody on one of your Dreamers, but if you succeed you will have permanently sacrificed that Dreamer and the dot will be removed from your sheet. Note that IC, Rhapsody is illegal and Ravaging may be depending on the attitudes of the local rulers. If your character engages in these forms of Epiphany and the wrong people find out IC, your character may face repercussions.

Note that all forms of Epiphany may increase your temporary glamour above your permanent glamour; however, doing so comes with risks. <cough>Bedlam<cough>.

Reverie and Ravaging may be performed on PCs. However, the rules as written were intended for use against NPC's, not other PCs. Because PCs are the focus of the game and therefore by definition 'special', and because there is a real live player sitting on the other side, the rules used for performing Reverie or Ravaging on a PC are somewhat different than on an NPC. See below for details. If you think you might want to perform Rhapsody on a PC, speak to fae staff before doing anything else.

PC Reverie

Reverie requires spending time getting to know the dreamer and understanding what drives their artwork. Once you have that, you can attempt to inspire them to create something really special. Reverie, like all other forms of Epiphany, is an activity that must be done on purpose. It doesn't happen by accident. You must start the process intending to eventually attempt to muse someone — just happening to be around when somebody creates something cool doesn't cut it.

  1. The earlier you can let fae staff know you want to attempt a reverie with a PC, the better.
  2. You must provide a minimum of one log of your RP with the dreamer demonstrating how you are becoming familiar with them, their work, and what drives them to create. More logs are better — the more time you spend with your Dreamer before the reverie, the easier it will be to inspire them.
  3. Your dreamer must be a willing participant in what is going on. They don't need to know what you are doing or why, but they must be comfortable working with you. Stalking is not a form of musing. ;)
  4. Once a connection has been made, you can attempt the reverie itself. At this point, the dreamer must create something — painting, sculpture, song, whatever their particular idiom is. The dreamer makes an appropriate roll for their particular type of artwork/creation — Expression may always be used, or a more specific ability, along with the most appropriate attribute for what they are doing. The number of successes on their roll is the maximum amount of glamour that the artwork will produce.
  5. The changeling rolls Manipulation + Empathy. Fae staff will set a difficulty for the roll based on the logs you provide. The difficulty will be based on how long you have been working with the dreamer and how strong a connection you have established with them, based on the content of the logs. The number of successes is the number of temporary glamour points actually gained, with a maximum as determined in step 4. Note that you must take all the glamour generated, even if it takes you above your permanent glamour.

PC Ravaging

Ravaging also requires spending some time with the Dreamer to get to know them, but it does not take as much time or as in-depth an understanding of the dreamer. It's easier because of that, but it comes with greater risk. There may be repercussions should the IC leadership find out, depending on their take on ravaging in general. In addition, all PCs have a chance to resist Ravaging. Those with various special abilities of their own also have a chance to realize that you are attempting to psychically assault them, and they probably won't take it kindly.

  1. Again, provide a minimum of one log of your RP with the Dreamer you intend to Ravage. Additional logs never hurt. The log(s) you provide should illustrate that you have established a relationship with the dreamer. You don't have to be best friends, but you should at least be on a first name basis.
  2. Once the logs have been submitted, the changeling can attempt to ravage the dreamer. The roll to ravage is the changeling's banality vs. a base difficulty of 6. Staff may adjust the difficulty based on the logs provided.
  3. All PCs may roll their Willpower vs. diff 6 to resist the ravaging. Even if they are not aware of what is going on, the instinct for self-preservation kicks in. Successes cancel out one-to-one. Some dreamers may have alternate or additional means of resisting. Some Dreamers may also be able to realize that the changeling is trying to psychically assault them, though it would take a fair bit of Fae Lore to recognize it as Ravaging and understand what that is.
  4. The changeling gains temporary glamour equal to the number of successes on their banality roll - the number of successes on the target's Willpower roll. Note that you must take all the glamour generated, even if it takes you above your permanent glamour.
