Welcome to Aes Sidthe's Obsidian Portal. This game is a Changeling: the Lost campaign focused in New York City. This is the GM's first World of Darkness game, though she has experience in running story-driven D&D campaigns with rich story focused plot lines.
This Wiki will contain information from the SRD as well as custom homebrew content for the game. Some links may lead outside Obsidian Portal, namely to the White Wolf Wikia. Content taken directly from the Wikia will be marked as such. The 'SRD' tag indicates that the page is mostly or entirely taken from the books published by White Wolf, though unless some form of quotation marking is used, the page is paraphrased. Best efforts will be made to point to the source of the content. The tag 'expanded' means that homebrew content is also available on the page, and it will be marked as such. Likewise, the 'homebrew' tag indicates the page is not at all taken from an SRD source. As of yet we have not included any other game's homebrew content.
The year is 2014, New York City. Mortals and their squabbles seem petty and distant compared to the problems currently plaguing the entirety of the changeling community. Even in Arcadia there has been talk of the strange divide that has been gaining strength between two factions of True Fae. They have come to be called the Old Ones and the Tuath Dé.
As always, the machinations of The True Fae ripples in effect into the modern world. In this age of Atheism and skepticism, the power of many True Fae has fallen in this world, but as fewer believe in myths, those who believe in the Titles used in the past — the Titles that were crushed by the growth of the Abrahamic faiths — have grown exponentially. Weakened Fae now return, unable to act in the Mortal worlds themselves, and many have joined in this trend towards kindness towards their mortal pets. They offer those who begin to worship one or more of their Titles power, fortune, fame, peace, happiness, understanding, and all other forms of temptations in exchange for their service, and entrance into the realm of Arcadia.
