The Summer Court is one of the four main courts of changelings found in Changeling: The Lost. The members of the Summer Court are renowned as seekers of strength and power, ready to protect the changelings from any foe, but especially those from Faerie. Summer changelings are just as likely to be politicians or intellectuals as they are warriors, so long as they can beat back a foe in some manner.
The founder of the court is Sam Noblood, who is said to have hunted down Summer himself to secure a promise to endorse Sam's court.
The changelings of the Summer Court are those most willing to fight; some toy with foes before going in for the kill, while others favor a more direct and brutal approach. A few among the Summer Court are specialized in fighting other supernatural creatures to protect changeling interests. Potential members are tested through a series of arduous physical tasks that must be passed before they are allowed to enter.
The most common and frequent rituals of the Summer Court are simple contests of physical skill between two or more changelings, mostly to burn off energy and anger, but also to create an unofficial court pecking order when it comes to certain talents. The Summer Court has also taken to creating similar skill competitions for other courts to compete in during their appropriate seasons; these may not always involve physical skill, but intellectual pursuits, magic, and so on, so long as the element of competition is involved.
