i encounter the changeling couturier


I APPLAUD THE FACADE OF THE CHANGELING COUTURIER

1 A confusion of crows flurry about
2 A constellation of mouths on their silvery skin
3 A static landscape always behind their steady gaze
4 Always steps out from behind scenery
5 Like a living marble statue, no arms or head
6 A veil of mist the color of heartache
7 Always seen as exquisitely lit
8 A dragon and a lion race around their feet
9 Three reflections surround them, like trifold mirror
10 A gaggle of goblins with needle and thread


I ADMIRE THE ATTIRE OF THE CHANGELING COUTURIER

1 Buttonlike spiders, a lattice of web
2 Flowing like water a garment of glass
3 Tumbling leaves from the middle of fall
4 Cockle-shells, layered and dangling low
5 Hundreds of bells ringing tiny and shrill
6 Pumpkin-flesh skin between trembling vines
7 A single, thin snake wound around into shape
8 Needleworked nickel and leatherworked lead
9 Fine-as-thread wicker and miniature leaves
10 Butterfly wings bound together with gold


I MONITOR THE MONIKER OF THE CHANGELING COUTURIER

I ACQUIRE THE DESIRE OF THE CHANGELING COUTURIER

1 A maiden’s firstborn
2 A night with the ruler’s spouse
3 Half of your remaining life
4 The sanity of a noble
5 Light spun into thread
6 A year and a day
7 The dress of a certain fashionwitch
8 Feather-down of a pegasus/firebird/owlbear/peacock
9 An accomplished tailor to take their place
10 Fashion plans of an aspiring rival




I HOARD THE REWARD OF THE CHANGELING COUTURIER

1 Audience with their patron fashionwitch
2 Oversized needle - as an unbreakable two handed rapier
3 Sash of Fearful Symmetry - break to conjure a burning tyger twin of yourself
4 A thread through shadow to the place you wish to be, taking a shortcut through the Gardens of Midnight
5 Moon Woman’s lace - bonus to all nighttime reaction rolls, introduction to Her6 Tabard of Indulgence - you hunger, and hungry things greet you as a friend. Resistance to fire, acid, carnivores, etc. but, save or stuff your face in the presence of food
7 Seam Ripper - use once the unstitch something from this world. It drifts off, elsewhere (as banish I guess?)
8 Perfect Disguise - your clothing changes to fit in wherever you are and strangers will always treat you as a native. You can also use your head like a pistol to shoot someone once but then the glamer disappears
9 Mundane Egg. Will hatch a world if used by an immortal. They will trade favors etc for it; I don’t know how the hell this poor soul got their hands on it.
10 Cruel Motley - jester’s clothes that make anyone laugh to distraction at any jokes you tell, but otherwise regard you with suspicion and fear.
