* DependingOnTheWriter: Apart from the Glamour/Banality confusion mentioned below, there was no sort of consensus on just how real chimerical things (sort-of-real objects made from dreams) were in the presence of people unable to perceive them. Would a chimerical wall provide shelter, a chimerical fire warmth, chimerical food nourishment? It varied. A lot.

The sequel for the TabletopGame/NewWorldOfDarkness, ''TabletopGame/ChangelingTheLost'', is a DarkerAndEdgier take on it where Changelings are the more traditional sort of humans that have been kidnapped by TheFairFolk and have managed to escape their clutches. While ''Lost'' can be as divisive as ''Dreaming'', it is at least clear about the authors' direction. The tone of ''Changeling: The Dreaming'' and ''''TabletopGame/WraithTheOblivion'' were basically swapped in the new World of Darkness for ''''TabletopGame/GeistTheSinEaters'' and ''Changeling: The Lost''.

* AllTherapistsAreMuggles: While there are a few exceptions among the Kithain, it says a lot that there are groups dedicated to jail-breaking institutionalized Changelings before they get "treated" back into dormancy. And that's to say nothing of the Dauntain in the profession....

In ''Changeling'', players take on the role of a Changeling Fae - a faerie who has been reincarnated into a human body as protection from Banality, a force representing the loss of humanity's capacity to dream and believe in magic. Faeries are children of the Dreaming, a supernatural force/parallel universe representing the combined creativity, stories, hopes, dreams and emotions of mankind, both good and bad. The Age of Enlightenment forced most Faeries into hiding because of the rise of industrialisation and Faeries band together to eke out an existence trying to bring Glamour and magic back into the world. (Interestingly, it was the moon landing in 1969, not {{Woodstock}}, which brought about such a surge of Glamour that it threw open the closed Gates of Arcadia, if only for a moment, and allowed the disappeared fairy nobility, the sidhe, to re-enter the world of mortals. Where they were stuck in mortal bodies afterwards.)

Added DiffLines:

** With C20, this is gleefully abandoned. Banality is actually a restrictive force on science, as it stifles creativity of all kinds, including technical innovation. Technocrats are still walking tempests of Banality, but that's because of their xenophobic fear and hatred of everything irrational and unquantified, rather than being scientists.


Added DiffLines:

*** In C20, this tends to be directed towards the Arcadian Sidhe, with the Autumn Sidhe being treated very respectfully. Justified, in that the Arcadian Sidhe ''[[HiddenElfVillage ran away.]]''

Elsewhere in the [=NWoD=], ''TabletopGame/BeastThePrimordial'' takes up the 'living dream' concept from ''Dreaming'', with Beasts being living nightmares who don't have to worry about disbelief.

** With the updates of the 20th anniversary the perception that Seelie is Good and Unseelie is Evil has greatly diminished. The Thallain likewise have gone from being double unseelie to now having an Unseelie (or more rarely Seelie) Legacy and a Shadow Legacy that reflects their More Monstrous and vile natures.

* AdaptationSpeciesChange: The Wichtel and Wolpertinger were Gallain in their original appearance in the German-only supplement ''Trolle, Träumer, tiefe Wälder'', but got included in the 20th anniversary core as Kithain.
