Game mechanics for casting any cantrip (CtD 204-206) - Hsien see separate section below

  1. Choose an art
  2. Choose a realm: if using any modifier/secondary realms, see below
  3. Determine dice pool: art's attribute + realm level that you have (even if you only need a lower level)
  4. Choose a bunk: above level 1 requires at least one separate action (Changeling Players Guide 157-160 lists some sample bunks, 178-179 for Nunnehi)
  5. Determine base difficulty: target's/caster's Banality (whichever is higher) + 4 - bunk level - Glamour spent, minimum 4, maximum 10
    • -1 difficulty if the realm is your kith's affinity
    • If the target doesn't have a Banality rating at all, then use caster's
  6. Determine Glamour cost: 1 for Wyrd cantrip and/or unenchanted target, 1 for no bunk, up to 5 to lower difficulty
  7. Roll dice
  • Modifier realms (Scene/Time)
    • +1 Glamour cost, +1 difficulty
    • Scene to cast cantrip with physical effect (chimerical or Wyrd): +1 difficulty per extra target
  • Secondary realms
    • -1 difficulty per additional relevant realm
    • Example: Mooching a sidhe's dagger when you have both Fae and Prop

Hsien

Game mechanics

Hsien: (Land of Eight Million Dreams pages 99, 110)

  1. Choose an art
  2. Choose whether the effect is Yin or Yang (page 97)
  • Yin: Dark, passive, cold, moist, decaying, negative, defensive, material, female
  • Yang: Light, active, hot, dry, growing, positive, offensive, male
  1. Determine successes needed
    • Typically 1, sometimes 2*N to modify an attribute / ability / dice pool
    • Modifiers = more successes needed (pages 106-107)
    • Fortune = fewer successes needed (pages 108-110), minimum 1
    • Rituals: see pages 111-112
  1. Spend Yugen (1 unless using a Cohort, pages 110-111)
  2. Roll art + relevant attribute (see below)
  • Multiple hsien with the same art can use it together; dice pool includes all their art levels, but only the lead caster's attribute
