In Memoriam:
Thomas Manning
In July of this year, we lost an artist and a gentleman.
Thomas Manning lived the life he wanted. He loved his wife, his work, his coffee, his friends, and he loved his games. He left many gaps but few failures. He was a good friend, a great cook, a pleasantly laid back host and handy around he house. He never tried to tell you about his character.

He is greatly missed. – Greg Stolze

Winter Masques is a sourcebook for Changeling: The Lost. It contains more options for player characters, in particular more information on the Seemings - including new Kiths and Contracts - and of Court structures beyond the seasonal courts common in the Western world.

Summary Edit

From the Onyx Path catalog:

The winter light is pale and bright
And so the serpent basks,
The Beast is bowed beneath the plow,
The djinn rest in their flasks,
The craftsman’s made to fit his trade,
The workers match their tasks,
On snowy floor, we waltz the score,
We masquers are our masks.
— Calcan Vocel
This book includes:
  • Extended information on the seemings, from their durance to new Contract lists
  • Greater detail on roleplaying the core kiths, and guidelines for crafting or customizing more
  • A look at changelings around the world, customizing their appearance and abilities to match culture or myth
