While all changelings are capable to some extent of entering and manipulating a sleeper’s dreams, the Contracts of Dream are a particularly potent means of doing so. They grant the changeling more power in the dreamscape, allowing her to control and direct a sleeper’s dreams, and also to manipulate the nature of dreams themselves without means of a pledge. They may also grant some insight into the dreamlike nature of the Hedge. (For more on dreamshaping without Contracts, see p. 190.)


The first and most basic clause allows the changeling to divine the nature of the Hedge in a certain area. Pathfinder can find Hollows, trods, paths to and from Faerie and other details of the local Hedge, such as what sorts of goblin fruits grow there.
Cost: 1 Glamour
Dice Pool: Intelligence + Wyrd
Action: Instant
Catch: The changeling must have plucked a Thorn from the local Hedge and shed a single drop of blood while doing so within the last day.

Roll Results

Dramatic Failure: The Contract yields wholly inaccurate information about the Hedge, suggesting paths where there are none, marking poisonous fruits as beneficial or otherwise utterly confounding otherwise useful information. Failure: The changeling learns no useful information about the local Hedge.
Success: For each success on the roll, the changeling learns a single pertinent fact about the local Hedge. In most cases, this information is just that — a statement about whether something exists. It doesn’t necessarily point out where a Hollow or pathway might exist, just the fact of its presence. The distance in which such information-drawing is effective is the changeling’s line of sight. Therefore, this power may be curtailed by a mysterious fog in the Hedge or a smoke cast by the Hedge’s burning.
Exceptional Success: As with an ordinary success, but the achievement of the exceptional success yields information about the location of features known to be in the Hedge.

Suggested Modifiers

Modifier Situation
–1 The changeling has never witnessed the local Hedge before, as with visiting a new freehold or otherwise finding the “Hedge-scape” vastly different than what she may have expected.
