A Contract is a power that allows creatures of Faerie to affect the mortal world. Contracts are ancient agreements made between the Fae and living embodiments of the natural world; as with most such magics (like the Mask), these bargains extend to all creatures touched by Faerie, and thus may be learned and used by Changelings.

Each Contract is a collection of related powers, or clauses, which were agreed upon in the same bargain. Usually a Changeling must use Glamour to empower the use of most clauses, but every clause has a "Catch", a loophole in the original agreement which allows use of the power without the magical price having to be paid.

Universal Contracts

Changelings have an affinity for a number of common Contracts, which they find easier to learn than others. Any changelings can learn these contracts without any added difficulty.

Seeming Contracts

Each Seeming also has an affinity for certain Contracts that grants powers associated with that Seeming. While any changeling can learn any Seeming Contract, they find it much harder to learn Contracts that do not match with their Seeming.

Court Contracts

Changelings who belong to a seasonal Court have an affinity to further two Contracts associated with their season: the "Fleeting" Contracts deal with manipulation of the Court's dominant emotion, while the "Eternal" Contracts invoke physical manifestations of the season itself. Due to the mystical connection granted by a Court's Mantle, the more advanced clauses of these Contracts may only be learned by Changeling's with a strong Mantle for the appropriate Court. The less powerful clauses may be taught to other Changelings, but such tutelage is generally only given to those who have proven their friendship to the Court.

Goblin Contracts

Finally there are the Goblin Contracts , Black Market contracts that can be obtained from the Goblin Market in exchange for various things. While these contracts are powerful, they usually come with a huge penalty for using them, and cannot be relied on as much as the other types.
