So I went by the FLGS the other day and was browsing about the gaming section where I spotted a copy of Changeling. I decided to flip through it and learned the premise of the game, Faerie lords steal people away to their realms where they live for many years, some escape and come back to earth as changed creatures who no longer really fit in. Nifty idea but I couldnt really focus on the book because that little bit started an idea running in my mind. What about playing mortals taken away by the Faerie and forced to do their bidding?
The immortal Faerie lords are in constant war with each other, trying to profess their ethos as superior to all others so they argue and debate amongst each other. They are immortal and can not die but they are creatures of comfort and averse to pain so they pluck mortals from their homes, hone them as tools of their ethos and then send them off to other realms in contests against the other Faerie lords minions. It may be warfare it may be assasination it could even be as simple as getting someone to paint their house a certain color, The Faerie lords bicker and argue for as long as it takes, eons even, to settle on something that they believe is a fair test of each of thier ethos. Then they send in their mortal servants.
Trained for centuries in the timeless realm the servants are powerful beings with access to abilites no normal mortal could ever hope to master. They've been indoctrinated in their masters ethos but the process is incomplete, they retain free will since a Faerie lords ethos can hardly be considered a strong one if even his servants reject it. They set out to do their masters bidding but the tasks may often conflict with their own nature, putting in question who they will serve their Faerie lord or their own conscience.
So what I ask of Story Games is suggestions on what game system to use for this? Is there something out there that can be used for this and how would I need to modify or what would I need to do with the system to make this work?
