3. How to Create a Changeling

To create a Changeling simply make a vampire or a ghoul and choose the kith(clan) that you wish to be. Next think about which seeming that you wish to be. There are 3 seeming: Childling, Wilder, and Grump. Seeming determines a couple of things.

Childling a child that is physically between the ages of 3 and 13.
 Beginning Glamour = 5
 Beginning Willpower = 1
 Beginning Banality = 1
Wilder a teenager/young adult that is physically between the ages of 13 and 25.
 Beginning Glamour = 4
 Beginning Willpower = 2
 Beginning Banality = 3
Grump an adult who is physically over the age of 25. 1 in 20 changelings is a Grump.
 Beginning Glamour = 3
 Beginning Willpower = 5
 Beginning Banality = 5

Now that you know what seeming you want to be - Either go into ST mode and spawn the correct Tome or have the ST spawn one for you. (i.e. Changeling_ChildlingTome, Changeling_WilderTome, Changeling_GrumpTome)

Read the tome and you will become a changeling. Now you might want some powers too. So in the same place that the Changeling tomes were before, there are Art tomes. (i.e. Changeling_ChicaneryTome, Changeling_LegerdemainTome, etc.)

Only read the art books that you plan to add some xp into to be fair :)

Now simply add XP to what you want. A tip to character creation is make sure you put something in the actor realm, otherwise your powers will not work. Also some powers require the prop realm for them to work on items. Eldritch Prime requires Nature to work. And to affect multiple targets requires the scene realm.

Level 2 - Quicksilver
Effect: Grants the user the ability to move at incredible speeds
Effect Type: NPCs and Players
Realms: The actor Realm of course is needed....You also need to load actor to a higher level if you want the effect to last longer. The scene realm can be used too to allow casting on multiple targets.

Level 3 - Wind Runner
Effect: Grants the user the ability to fly.
Effect Type: Caster only.
Special Casting Instructions:
You cast the discipline once...it spends a glamour and starts the effect to running under your feet. Cast the discipline again and you will rise 150 units. Now you can cast again to rise another 150 units or you can wait three seconds (it will count on the console for you) Once those 3 seconds are up the effect will quit. Now you can cast anywhere and you will fly to the point in which your cursor was at.
IMPORTANT: Do not click with the left mouse button.If you do then you will fall and screw up your flying and the ST should damage you or even kill you depending on how far you fell.
Once the effect has ran out or once you right-click the flight icon, it will tell you to recast to land. Simply recast the discipline. You will go down only 50 units. It will give you 5 seconds to recast again. You should keep recasting until you can get as close to the surface that you wish to land on then wait out the 5 seconds. If you are on walkable land, then simply click with the left mouse button and the character will reposition itself back on the ground. Otherwise stand there (like if you are on a non-walkable roof) Once the 5 seconds are up, you can recast the discipline and fly back up.

Level 4 - Flicker Flash
Effect: Grants the user to be able to teleport to any map or exit number
Effect Type: Caster only.
Special Casting Instructions:
Cast the discipline and look at the console. It will tell you the target destination that is currently set (Will be the map that you are on at the moment). It will give you 5 seconds to change locations. Simply recast the discipline and it will cycle through the maps.
If you only have 1 dot in this art, then you will only be able to teleport to the current map. 2 dots = 2 maps; 3 dots = 4 maps; 4 dots = 8 maps; 5 dots = all maps.
Once you choose a location then wait out the 5 seconds.
Now it will ask for an exit number. Cycle through those by casting the discipline and pick one. (exit number 0 is the exit number that you go to with the ST jump to location) Once you pick an exit number, wait out the 5 second counter. Then it will say recast to Teleport. Once you do this it will tell you on the console how much time must expire before you teleport.
Now if you got one success on the roll then it will take an hour. 2 successes = 15 minutes; 3 successes = 1 min; 4 successes = 10 seconds; 5 successes = 0 seconds.
The only way to cancel this is to die, or have the ST revive you and then you have to recast the discipline. If you die or the ST revives you, then you will not teleport.
