Quoth the Rarash:

“Greetings, friend. Don’t mind me, this is just a Dream. What am I doing in your dream? Why, I’m just helping myself to some of your corn. You don’t want me to eat it? Ah. then perhaps you should leave out some fresh baked white bread and a big bowl of milk in the morning. It would prove more beneficial to you than you realize.”

Kith Excerpt:

Barnyard roosters are a mainstay in the more agrarian and rural communities of Slavic Lands. They are seen everywhere, and few pay the much heed. There is one Zima (Unseelie) Tribe, who much like these ubiquitous birds, can hide in plain sight. Able to change into Roosters, this Plemya (Kith) is often one overlooked, and they are happy that way.

Like witches’ secret Familiars they go unhindered, and like the Familiars they are just as magical. All young boys to a one of them, the Rarash are clever and witty and claim barns, farms, mills, or similar country holdings as their sanctum Sanctorums. They adopt the family of these areas as their own and go about their business unseen and unnoticed. If the mortals present know about it, they remain silent.

The Rarash existence is a short one, as their magical nature lasts only as long as their youth does. Time and tide wait for no boy, and the onset of a budding manhood replaces their Fae nature. What’s left is a clever kinain, with no memory of His Rarash younger years. Yet no few of their older selves awaken to different magics… (Whatever this means to players or storytellers).



“What might be taken for a precocious genius is the genius of childhood. When the child grows up, it disappears without a trace. It may happen that this boy will become a real painter someday, or even a great painter. But then he will have to begin everything again, from zero.” – Pablo Picasso
