Items from other books will be considered on a one-for-one basis, except Equinox Roads: the only things from there that will be considered are Contract of Reflections, and Crimson Steel.
When submitting said request, please include the proper name of the power or item, the book in which it can be found, and the page number.
As per the information listed in Autumn Nightmares as well as the information regarding Changelings and their fertility in the Corebook, we will be maintaining a specific ruling on this. Yes, your character may get pregnant if you so chose to allow for that. Please remember that as per the Clarity information listed in the Changeling the Lost corebook on page 92, it is a Clarity break at level 4 to have an unexpected pregnancy, this applies to both male and female Changelings.
The pregnancy may go through the full gestation period if you as a player so chose, however upon birth the child lives for the length of 1 hour per dots of Wyrd of the Changeling parent or the mother in cases of dual Changeling matings. After that point the body of the child may be dealt with however the parents so see fit.

Pregnancy, Children or Birthing as a Changeling:
As per the information listed in Autumn Nightmares as well as the information regarding Changelings and their fertility in the Corebook, we will be maintaining a specific ruling on this. Yes, your character may get pregnant if you so chose to allow for that. Please remember that as per the Clarity information listed in the Changeling the Lost corebook on page 92, it is a Clarity break at level 4 to have a pregnancy, unexpected or not. This applies to both male and female Changelings.
If you choose for your PC to go down this road, the pregnancy may go through the full gestation period if you as a player so chose, however upon birth the child lives for the length of 1 hour per dots of Wyrd of the Changeling parent (or the mother in cases of dual Changeling matings). After that point the body of the child may be dealt with however the parents so see fit.
The merit of "Mantle" is considered to be a supernatural connection with your court's season and ideals. Based on the information given both in the Mantle section of the core book and the expanded information in the corebook regarding how contracts work, we will be considering Mantle as such. Until such time as a valid argument to the contrary backed by fact written in the book can be brought to our attention the Mantle will be considered separate from your court status.
This is not to say however that the weight of your Mantle may not interfere with your politics. On the contrary, your Mantle may very well garner you a measure of respect within your court. As per pg 97 of the Changeling the Lost core book you may add your Mantle score to relevant social rolls with members of your court at a rate of +1 per dot. However this roll is not available to supernatural powers that are being used unless otherwise stated in the description of the power
A Word on Ensorcelled Mortal PCs:
Ensorcelled PCs shall be treated as normal PCs unless extenuating circumstances are a factor. The following rules will be applied to Ensorcelled mortals:
Optional Rule: Madness
This rule is listed on page 43 of Autumn Nightmares and will be applied to all mortals that are ensorcelled. As a clarification, for this rule any individual that is not a full-fledged Vampire, Werewolf, Mage, or Changeling is considered mortal. This means that wolf-kin, Sleepwalkers and Ghouls CAN and WILL be effected.
