New Realm: Prodigal
original concept by Jade Hammons (2 December 1995)
rewritten by Otterpooka (6 November 1997) for Changeling: The Dreaming Second Edition
This art is intended to affect other awakened denizens of the World of Darkness. They interact with arts in the same manner that Fae or Actor do. Categories and creatures listed here are general only, if a character has a specific Banality rating, then use that instead. The individual personality and the Storyteller have the final say.
Note: Autumn People count as Actor (usually Dire Enemy).
True Believer (Banality 1 & 2)
This level affects prodigals who already believe in the existance of the fae, or those without a choice.
- Vampire -- Kiasyd.
- Werewolf -- Fianna (Rank One, Ragabash, Galliard), Uktena, Wendigo; Ceilican, Nuwisha.
- Mage -- Marauder, any mage actively suffering a quiet that would demand/allow it.
- Others -- any enchanted prodigal with the background Fae Blood (see The Enchanted), any wraith that had qualified as a Prodigal: 2 Dreamer when they were alive.
Dreamer (Banality 3 & 4)
This realm affects Believers, but not those whose belief is as instant as level one.
- Vampire -- Malkavian, Ravnos.
- Werewolf -- Fianna, Theurges, Rank 1 to 2 Garou; Bastet, Corax, Kitsune, Mokole, Gurahl (Galliard, Philodox, Theurge).
- Mage -- Dreamspeakers, Order of Hermes, Verbena.
- Wraiths -- most of them.
Wistful Thinker (Banality 5 & 6)
This level affects those prodigals just beginning to slip out of the believer mindset, or those who hover on the edge.
- Vampire -- Neonates (13th to 10th generation).
- Werewolf -- Rank 3 to 4 Garou; Ananasi, Gurahl (Ragabash and Arhoun).
- Mage -- Akashic Brotherhood, Celestial Chorus, Euthanatos; visionary Void Engineers.
- Others -- Spectres, Formori
Lost Soul (Banality 7 & 8)
Almost out of touch with the Dreaming, this level affects the upper echelons of banal prodigals, and those opposed to, or unaware of, the Dreaming.
- Vampire -- Ancillae/Elders (9th to 6th generation).
- Werewolf -- Rank 5 or more Garou; Goblin Spiders, Ratkin, Rokea.
- Mage -- Sons of Ether; some Progenitors; Nephandi.
- Others -- Fomori.
Autumn Mist (Banality 9 & 10)
This last level affects those most caught up in the status quo, and hence the most banal of the prodigals and humans.
- Vampire -- Methuselahs/Antideluvians (5th generation and up).
- Werewolf -- Changing Breeds in Harano (though they are ripe for Ravaging).
- Mage -- Virtual Adepts; Iteration X, N.W.O., Progenitors, Syndicate, Banal Void Engineers.
