DST - Changeling the Lost

edited March 2014 in DST Development
Hey guys,

I must be a complete idjut - but I can't see how one can use the DST system. I have a new campaign for Changeling starting up, but I can't see how/where one sets up the DST for use by my players? I've selected Changeling: The Lost as my game system.

Any help would be great.

    DSTs are all user created, so if there isn't one already there for Changeling you would need to create your own if you want to use them.

    Note that this link may be a bit outdated, as I think it was written before the reforge.

    Thanks for that. I have the DST in mind (there is one for Changeling: The Lost), but I can't see how one "activates" it for use in my campaign...

    You select the sheet from a Dynamic Style Sheet Dropdown box when the character is made. This must be selected for each character.

    To prevent confusion, I usually create the characters for my Players on the site using the DST, save, then edit and tranfer ownership from me to them

    Hope this helps

    Hmmm - then I must have a bug, as I cannot select anything. I've looked at in both Chrome and Firefox, and I can see a spot for 'Dynamic Style Sheet', but I do not have any drop down menus.

    Have you set the game type for your campaign (Settings -> Basic Settings -> Game System) to Changeling: The Lost? If not, that's your issue almost certainly.

    Once you have that set, you should see a drop-down menu whenever you edit a character:

    Found the problem: The _Changeling: The Lost_ DST is set as a sheet type for _World of Darkness_ games, rather than _Changeling: The Lost specifically_. If you switch your game system setting over to that, you should see what you're looking for.
