Welcome to Rainbow CityEdit
This is a site dedicated to the Changeling:the Dreaming chronicle which will be played live on Twitch. Here you will find all the information you need on how to create characters and participate in Rainbow City. Rainbow City uses source material from a number of CtD books including Immortal Eyes:The Toybox . This book, however, was published in 1995. Rainbow City in its current form is best described as a reboot of the CtD 2nd Edition as we await the publication of Changeling 20th Anniversery Edition. Some cannonical characters, such as Queen Aeron, are being introduced at the age they were then, simply two decades later. Other events, such as the dissapearance of David Ardry and the entire war of succession depicted in War in Concordia reached a conclusion as envisioned by the RC Storyteller: Princess Lenore became High Queen Lenore of Concordia in 2004 and continues to rule the kithain of North America.
The story kicks off in the Free Commons composed primarily of the Haight-Ashbury district, birthplace of hippy subculture and later a hotspot for commedy clubs and rock/indie music which launched countless celebrity careers in the '80s and '90s. Nowadays, the streets are lined with gift shops, trendy restaurants and little hole-in-the wall stores featuring vintage clothing, jewelry, and all manner of weird, "edgy" items. Both the crime rate and consumer spending are above average. For the kithain? The Haight is a wonderful place to live and work as one of the free commoners- seelie and unseelie alike. Here, Duchess Aliera and the rest of House Fiona are given lip service at best. While the rest of the duchy of Goldengate is filled with either oathbound loyalists (the beleiged ) or defiant anarchists (the belligerents), the changelings here are typically independent but peaceful. Most grudgingly accept the current political landscape and the dominance of the sidhe even if they don't like it. For their part, the Fiona and other sidhe only come to Haight for shopping and amusement. At least, that's the way it has been for the four decades.
Making A Rainbow City CharacterEdit
For the initial Twtich-based game, The Emperor's Soapbox, all player characters need to be commoner changelings or sidhe of House Scathach. In addition, they should be students (wilders) who attend or staff/teachers (grumps) who work at The Urban School of San Francisco. This provides an easy way for the characters to interact with each other and keep similar schedules. A second chronicle, The Fairie Tails, is already in the work and will have exclusively childling pooka player characters. Once Changeling 20th Edition exists in .pdf format sometime in mid 2016, the wiki will be updated and an online chatroom based Rainbow City chronicle will launch.
