Welcome to No Books of Men! We are a modern alternate history board set in a magical school nestled in the Columbiana Valley of the Rocky Mountains. Students of the Collegium Illustrata Columbiana (commonly called simply The Academy) are free to explore their wildest imaginations in learning the mystic arts, so long as it does not jeopardize the ongoing Shadow War with the Exarchs. How will you live up to the legacies of Merlin?

  1. Wizened's Disadvantage
    The lack of recognition, does it extend even to interactions between fellow (wizened) changelings?
  2. Seasonal Courts
    From reading the lore of the Winter Court, it seems that after joining a particular Court, changelings grow to exhibit traits of their Court, which sorta kinda implied to me that while like tends to attract like, changelings do not necessarily always join a Court that mimics their own vices/desires the best (but will eventually become a 'typical' member of their court)

    So, would it be plausible for a Changeling to join a Court feel that it's not a good fit/have conflicts with other members of their court, get kicked/leave voluntarily, and then join another Court? How socially accepted is this?

1. The answer is sort of? They are aware said lack of recognition, BUT think of what happens when people who are commiserating start to one-up each other. It's kind of like that. Yet they are more understanding of it among their seeming then say...between others.

2. Yes you can switch out of courts, and it's considered something you can do and it's not outright frowned upon. But your former courtiers will probably feel a sense of betrayal at you leaving them (though as a group of survivors there is also the understanding that you need to do what's best for you, and did they help you out as well as they could...so the blame is often handed around). Leaders of the courts however might be a bit less inclined to trust you with important duties of course, because they might not be sure if you'll stay.

On that note, getting kicked out rough, while someone higher up might say something more gentle like 'This might not be the court for you' they won't outright cast you out. If you DO something that will get you kicked out, chances are, you aren't going to be allowed back into any court, and the life of the courtless is a difficult one without a support network.

Things that would get you exiled: Still serving your Gentry master being the big one. Loyalists out to get their fellows back over hte hedge is a crime worse then murder!
