F: Fairies

Fairies are kind of a strange monster in D&D. Not a threat in the physical way most monsters are, and yet the fae are usually quite powerful. A party that messes with fairies are in for a very rough time crossing the forest. 


I tend to use magic in my games as sparingly as possible, to keep the low fantasy tone and keep magic fantastical. Fairies and the Fae kind of fit into a special niche though, if done properly they can stay low fantasy but still inject some weird folksy type magic into a setting. Kinda like Baba Yaga type witches, moss dwarves and the like. Hedge magic.



Anyways- here is the stats for pixies in my game, I guess they are pretty much fairies.

Sorry for another wimpy post. Still feeling under the weather. Maybe I pissed off a fairy?

  2. Haha, yeah. I searched "creepy fairies" and it was one of the first things to come up. I like the idea that fairies could look like anything really and could actually be pretty disturbing.
