Through Sunday, January 24 we present (on short notice) the all-new Jackie’s Dreaming Bundle, a benefit offer in memory of the late Jackie Cassada featuring the Changeling: The Dreaming Storyteller game in its lavish 2017 20th Anniversary Edition from Onyx Path Publishing.
In 1997 White Wolf published Changeling as the fifth and last of the original Storyteller System game lines that together composed the World of Darkness. Seen by some as a lighter, more fantasy-based contrast to the other Gothic-Punk games (Vampire, Werewolf, Mage, and Wraith), and by others as the darkest game White Wolf had yet created, Changeling made its half-fae characters face what happens once creativity and magic fades from their lives. A December 2015 US$380K Kickstarter campaign by Onyx Path Publishing funded the Changeling: the Dreaming 20th Anniversary Edition, which compiled and completed the concepts of that deceptively bright yet terrifying world.
Many of Changeling‘s dreams were first imagined by Jackie Cassada in her long career as a prolific writer for multiple White Wolf game lines, always in collaboration with her partner of 57 years, Nicky Rea. The RPG industry functions on a work-for-hire model, and Nicky and Jackie received no royalties for most of their work. In December 2020 both Nicky and Jackie contracted COVID-19. Nicky survived, with lasting complications; Jackie passed away December 29, aged 71. Now 69 years old, with major medical and financial concerns, Nicky might soon become homeless. Mage: The Ascension line developer Satyros Phil Brucato has organized a GoFundMe campaign for Nicky Rea, and Onyx Path Publishing has kindly contributed this Jackie’s Dreaming benefit that presents much of the Changeling 20A line for a bargain price. All money from this offer (after payment gateway fees) goes to help Nicky through a tough time.
Pay just US$5.95 to get all four titles in our Starter Collection (retail value $31) as DRM-free .PDF ebooks, including the complete full-color 500-page Changeling: The Dreaming 20th Anniversary Edition core rulebook (plus the Concordia Map), the Yours to Keep C20 Jumpstart, and Jackie and Nicky’s Changeling novel The Cup of Dreams, fourth in their “Immortal Eyes” series.
And if you pay more than the threshold (average) price, which is set at $12.95 to start, you’ll level up and also get our entire Bonus Collection with five more titles worth an additional $30, including the Changeling 20A Player’s Guide, Ready Made Characters, Book of Freeholds, C20 Storyteller’s Screen, and the C20 Anthology of Dreams story collection.
You’ll recapture the spirit of your youth, stave off Banality, and help Nicky Rea when you get this Jackie’s Dreaming Bundle before it fades into Dream Sunday, January 24. Until then, please spread the word.
