The Book of Freeholds is a sourcebook for Changeling: The Dreaming 20th Anniversary Edition.


From DriveThru RPG:


They are the center of Kithain culture, the havens and shelters required when times get grim. They are dreams made manifest, and hopes kept burning. From the Mythic Ages to the present day, freeholds have been the linchpin around which the changeling world turns.

Fragile, powerful, mysterious and oft-dangerous, the complex natures of freeholds make for valuable commodities to all changelings, worth dying to protect or killing to acquire.


The Book of Freeholds opens the doors and invites you in to sit at the hearth for a deep dive into the foundations of changeling society. Learn the history of freeholds as they wind throughout Kithain history. Discover the lost Treasures that bind the fae and their homes together, soul-to-balefire. Study the dangers, the threats, understand the duties and responsibilities, and then gather your motley to claim your birthright.

The Book of Freeholds contains:

  • Two new freehold Archetypes
  • Four new Glade Archetypes
  • Full rules for the creation of freeholds and Glades
  • 11 fully developed freeholds and Glades
  • New chimera, Treasures and Oaths, and more
