Quick Reference

What humans thought were only stories and myths about supernatural beings and paranormal activities throughout history were based on the Fey in their various forms. Some of the main kinds of Fey have the ability to “infect” humans, in effect making more of themselves — usually deliberately but sometimes not. The abilities of these preternatural humans, being “second-generation Fey,” so to speak, are always a diluted form of the original Feys’. Only vampires, werewolves and the Sidhe of Faerie have chosen to do so at this point; other Fey types seem less willing or able to share their abilities with mankind.

Character Classes

No matter what class of Second-Generation Fey you may be, the following is true:

  1. The personality does not change. Conversion does not intrinsically change their personalities: they are no more a monster as a newvie than they were as a human being. That said, power can corrupt, and there are those that embrace a more monstrous way of living more easily than others. Prejudice is strong, however; it's entirely likely that others would assume your conversion has made you a monster.
  2. The change is immediately apparent. When a conversion happens, you are immediately aware of your powers, how to use them, and so forth. If you're a Faerie, you are also inherently aware of your new geas or hex.
  3. All Fey are sterile. All of the Otherworld Fey are incapable of creating new life since The Breach; this inability seems to have been passed down to the second-generation Fey as well, though no one seems to be sure why this is so. It may just be a cost that the magic has demanded.
  4. No Second-Generation Fey can sire another. That is an Otherworld power alone.
