THE rekindling

Once upon a time, there was a kingdom unseen but felt and kept within our hearts. Once upon a time, there were legends that existed beyond the mist of dreams and things that could not be. Once upon a time, there was a land of hope fighting against the onset of oppression.

Once upon a time we had a dream, but now all we have is its memory…

For decades, players brought the world of Changeling: the Dreaming to life. Many of those chronicles are now ended, but the stories live on in our hearts and dreams. At Waking Dreams, we’re offering the chance to bring some of those old tales back to life. Players of Changeling in times past can bring back their prior characters in a new form, their magic rekindled by the balefire of dreams lit at the festival.

In our story, for more than a decade the world of Changelings has entered a harsh Withering Autumn. Glamour has faded from the world, and the vast majority of Changelings have lost who they were, falling into the Forgetting. But these Slumberers can still be reawoken, and the time has come for them to once more dust off their red caps, find their chainmail, and don their glitter once again. The Balefires are lit, and the Dreaming is calling.
