Legacy

Legacies represent how a Changeling truly sees the world, and then acts upon it. All Changelings must take a Seelie and an Unseelie legacy, representing the time when Changelings would periodically switch between the Seelie and Unseelie courts on a regular basis.

The legacy that you show to the world is dependent on your court membership, which can change primarily due to circumstances beyond your control. The two legacies can be similar, or dissimilar, the choice is up to the player.
Each legacy has a Quest and a Ban which must be fulfilled in order to prevent a change of court affiliation and attitude, as well as to maintain comfort and a clear conscience.
