Shadows of San Francisco
History of the Changelings in the Bay Area
The story goes like this. When Sir Francis Drake left behind some of his crew in the bay area, among them were a small handful of the Lost. They had hoped to escape the Gentry by shipping out with Captain Drake. What they didn’t expect to find was that the people of the new world were haunted and hunted as well.
The Others took different forms and different names, here. But their hallmarks were all the same. The changelings even discovered kin among the tribes who roamed the coastal lands. It was Drake’s changelings who organized the Freehold of Nova Albion. The native people had a different attitude towards things. But as the cultures mingled, more of them joined up and helped guide the direction the Freehold would eventually take.
