The Contracts of Lucidity are a set of changeling abilities found in Changeling: The Lost. It is a universal contract, available to any changeling who wishes to take it.


One of the biggest challenges any changeling faces is dealing with the ever-present memories of their durance. Try as they might to leave their past behind them, unexpected reminders creep through the tiniest cracks in the Lost psyche, each one with the potential to breech the dam of pseudo-humanity that a changeling wraps around himself upon returning Faerie. Shoring up that dam, bolstering one’s own Clarity, or that of others, is the nominal purpose of this Contract, and the only one that most Lost will ever admit to using them for. Any tool, however, can be dangerous in the wrong hands, which is why many changelings will not speak of, let alone learn, these powers.
