Changeling: the Dreaming
This is my personal revision of the Changeling rules for a revised edition. They reflect my own feelings about what needs to stay from 2nd edition, what needs to be clarified, and what needs to be altered. Some changes, especially in the Setting section, were made to fit my conception of the metaplot, which changed after Denizens to fit the larp I was running. Feel free to use and/or discard anything you find in this revision for your own Changeling games or revisions, though I'd love to get a mention if you found an idea particularly cool. Please email me any comments, suggestions, or questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Finally, the fonts used in the document and made available are not owned by Stephen Cheney, and will be taken down should the owners be unhappy with their inclusion on the site.
Acknowledgements: This work would not be possible without the input of alt.games.whitewolf and the RPG.net forums, or without the players of the Dreams of Darker Days LARP, who showed the beleaguered Changeling ST exactly what worked and what needed to be changed to best fit his conception of how Changeling should be revised.
