Name: Solstice Court
Emotion: Desperation
Entitlements: None

The Solstice Court is an entitlement in Changeling: The Lost. Members aspire to one day equal the power and prestige of the Seasonal Courts, something the Seasonal Courts are not particularly keen on.

Organization Edit

The Solstice Court is a grassroots movement and their tiny numbers tend to obviate the need for much internal structure. Some claim an ancient origin for it, while others ascribe its foundation to the 1960s counterculture or an English Wizened named Sooty John. Whatever the truth, the "Betweeners" see themselves as a balancing force against the hegemony of the Seasonal Courts, and recognize the sacred nature of transitions--the crossroads, the witching hour, and of course, the days of equinox and solstice when one season gives way to the next.

The Solstice Court has not achieved a true contract with its time in the same fashion as the Seasonal Courts, though stories abound of changelings who have tried to forge such a contract and failed. Still, members of the Solstice Court are able to count Desperation as their native passion, despite technically being Courtless.

Less-than-savory rumors about the Solstice Court abound, the most serious being that it is a front for Loyalists seeking to undermine entire freeholds and return them to the Gentry. In other freeholds, Betweeners have worked to enforce the seasonal transfer of power, though the whispers of assassinations are probably exaggerated. Such rumors, and the disapproval of the Seasonal Courts, have not stopped the Solstice Court from actively recruiting, and many hold out hope that they will be able to achieve true Great Court status.
