Changeling: Fae Mounts

Fae Mounts 2.0

How Does It Work?

  • Step 1: Choose "base" Template based on Merit Level and declare if it is a land or sea based mount.
  • Step 2: Purchase another dot (up to a maximum of one dot/3 build points) to gain +3 Build Points. This is optional.
  • Step 3: Assign Build Points in Passive and Active Effects, following rules and limitations for each type.
    • Passive Effects: These are effects that are always on.
    • Active Effects: These effects need to be 'turned on'. Spending 1 Glamour or Rolling Wyrd. This activates all of the attached Active Effects listed at the players whim for the entire scene or when they wish to end them.
      • Active Effects have limits: No bonus to a skill can exceed +5. The bonuses may stem from different pieces but can not exceed giving the character a +5 to their roll for them.
  • Step 4: Describe Mask and Mien.

Animal Fae Mounts

xxxxxAnimal Fae Mounts are just that: animals. While some may be very intelligent, they still have animal habits and attitudes. Just like any other animal they are prone to fear, have instincts that drive them and desires that consume them. Having a massive basilisk seems like a cool idea but if it gets hungry and eats one of your friends? That becomes a problem. Maybe a funny problem but still a problem. Animal Fae Mounts are only loyal to their 'Master' and usually have no compunction to be friendly or loyal to anyone else. These are creatures made out of raw dreams and so they can be a little unpredictable at times. They also need to be fed. In case it needs saying: Animal Fae Mounts cannot be humanoid in design.


As a note, animal fae mounts do begin with 1 dot in every attribute, just like PCs do. So to give a mount Stamina 4 requires 3 of your attribute dots, not 4.

Crafted Fae Mounts

xxxxx Crafted Fae Mounts are vehicles that can range from a bicycle to something resembling an APC, a gyrocopter or a jet. Crafted Fae Mounts are sturdy and unlike Animal Fae Mounts they do not need rest but they do need fuel. They also need maintenance just like any other vehicle on Earth. Unlike Animal Fae Mounts, Vehicles do not act independently of their owner, but they tend to be faster and can be operated with more control.

Passive Effects per Point. 1 Dot = 3 Points

  • Armored: Each point spent in Armored increases the Mount's Durability by +1.
  • Amphibious: 1 point - Mount is able to move over water as if it were solid land, or vice versa
  • Locked: 1 Point - A car, an RV, a tank, a submarine, the vehicle can be locked from within or from outside so things cannot just board it on a whim. This makes it somewhat safer if used to camp out in while in the Hedge. Somewhat being the keyword there.

NOTE: The Mount will have a mask of the closest vehicle on Earth to resemble it. Upon selecting this, it is required that you supply a mask. Staff has final say on what does and does not constitute a valid mask. Vehicles look like Vehicles. In the case of flying or large vehicles, this effectively creates a portal large enough for it and it's passengers to erupt into the real world. Which can be dangerous, as it would be a blind leap of faith.
  • Quiet: 1 Point - The engine or mechanisms to power this Mount are quiet and hard to hear. Further: it's tires or other means of locomotion run stealthy, imposing a -3 penalty for it to be heard along any surface.
  • Reinforced: Each point spent in Reinforced increases the Durability of the Mount by +2

  • Stealth: 2 Point - Could be the paint job, could be from it's design but this thing is hard to spot if moving no faster than Safe Speed. Imposing a -3 to attempts to see it from a distance. Stealth conceals those inside the Mount but no one that is outside of it. They will need their own camouflage.
  • Flight: 2 Points - Fly at base speed. Additional purchases ups fight speed by +10. This operates only within the Hedge. For mounts that can leave the hedge and fly, it costs 4 points.
  • Submersible: 2 Point to reflect this is an aquatic machine capable of moving under water with no penalty. Driver and passengers are in a closed compartment where they can breathe.
