ï¿½We donï¿½t do, we just are!ï¿½

While Paradigm Shifts in the Hedge can get you a single goblin fruit, it also attracts attention from denizens in the area and the Hedge itself. This is in addition to the negative emotional effects it can have on the Changeling causing the Paradigm Shift. A much safer way to get the specific goblin fruit you want is to farm it.
To facilitate this, you must have a Hollow and a means of growing goblin fruit within it(either Goblin Bounty or Stable Trod). After you have these you can, once per month, attempt a hedgespinning roll to cause a paradigm shift within your hollow and turn a single fruit into an approved hedge fruit of any kind.
As the hedgespinning takes place over a lengthy period of time and in the safety of your own secure Hollow/Trod, this will not gain the attention of other denizens of the hedge and will not cause a negative mental effect upon success of a paradigm shift.
This can vary and will be up to the motley to determine what you would like to use as long as it fits the theme of the fruit you are attempting to grow. For example, if you are attempting to grow Amaranthine, this roll represents your motley cultivating that private garden with the mindset of compassion while using cinnamon fertilizer and telling the plant stories of loss and despair that it takes to make this very precious fruit. Appropriate roles might be Presence/Wits + Empathy(tending to plant with compassion), Intelligence + Science(correct mixture of cinnamon, tears and lifeblood), Presence/Manipulation + Expression(songs or stories of lamenting loss and despair), etc.
Workshop*: If you are using a Workshop in your hedgespinning roll, the die pool must be Intelligence + Crafts + Workshop
Due to the shortened list of kiths in the second edition corebook for Changeling, a number of the kiths presented in the original playtest have been reviewed and updated to match the changes made to the system since that playtest was released. Those kiths can be found here, and have been approved for play.
When a Hollow has Easy Access, the normal Portaling rules are amended. Each Changeling must enter and leave separately, expending a Glamour every time they either enter or leave. The Hollow has no permanent entrance from the mundane world, and every Lost returns to the same mundane door that they entered at.
If Bob and Alice share a Hollow, and Bob spends a glamour and enters the Hollow from a door in China while Alice spends a glamour and enters from a door in Algeria, Alice may not ‘follow’ Bob out to China when Bob spends a glamour and exits to the mundane world. To exit to the mundane world, Alice must also spend a glamour, and she will exit to Algeria.
If Clarice the vampire is brought through the Easy Access portal by Bob, she may exit with Alice. As she is unable to expend glamour to open her own Portal, she is at the mercy of whoever will ferry her through.
If a Changeling enters through an unlocked door that is subsequently locked, she may not exit into the mundane world until it is unlocked. She must exit into the Hedge.
Such is the tradeoff for being able to enter your Hollow from literally anywhere.
When a motley submits for the Stable Trod merit, they must follow the rules on p201–202 of the CtL core book to determine the Trod’s length and how well the motley cares for the Trod. A length 3 trod which is “well cared for” is a 5 dot trod. You must submit the start and end points for your Trod on the request where it is first purchased.
An Empty Heart counts as protective fae magic, so a character with one that’s killed by Iron will not be able to be revived.
