Anyway, I'm looking at creating a character that's associated with the Autumn Court, in a game where Summer has a lot of power. It seems like we're going to create the fluff for Autumn from the ground up, and the GM has let me know he's reviewing my proposals, and working on some ideas of his own. But that leaves me thinking about what sort of power the court will have, and by extension, my character.
Autumn is a shadow of what it was, with barely any power of its own, let alone to grant. Refresh is 7.
The obvious option is to be the Autumn Knight, and take some sort of Faerie magic similar to Seelie and Unseelie. I was searching around and found the terms Adseelie and Abseelie, for Spring and Autumn respectively, and I like them. They have a real positive and negative, adding and subtracting feel to them. So as I was saying, the obvious choice for Knight is to take Abseelie Magic, which would involve... what? Weakening? Decay? Harvest? Chill? Halloween? Turning things gorgeous red and gold colors?
Other options are a changling, or a mortal/minor talent who is somehow bound by the court, and right now I'm leaning toward either the Knight or Minor Talent Template.
Please let me know if you have ideas for powers, purviews, and how the Autumn court would get stuff done despite being so anemic!
