Easy Hybrid Races – Part 5: Fey

by Tim Wallace

Fey Base Races
Hybrid Fey have these additional rules.
-        Tiny races can only breed with other Tiny races and Small races. If they breed with a Small race, you may choose whether the resulting hybrid race is a Tiny or Small (and therefore whether or not you want to pay the 4 RP for the Tiny size race trait).
-        When bred with a Humanoid or Monstrous Humanoid, the result is a Fey. When bred with a Dragon, you may choose whether the resulting hybrid race is a Fey or a Dragon. When bred with a native outsider, the resulting hybrid race is Outsider (native). For more information on interbreeding different creature types, check out Part 2.

Brownies (standard ability scores: +2 Dexterity, +2 Charisma, –2 Strength)
Brownies make their homes in the trunks of hollow trees, small earthy burrows, and even under porches and within the crawlspaces of farmhouses. Often attired in clothes that appear to be made of plants or leaves, brownies wear belts lined with pouches and tools. Whatever language they choose to speak is often is riddled with odd pronunciations and colloquialisms. Brownies stand barely 2 feet tall and weigh 20 pounds.

Essential Traits (6 RP)
-        Fey (1 RP)
-        Tiny (4 RP): Brownies are Tiny creatures and gain a +2 size bonus to Dexterity and a –2 size penalty to Strength. Brownies gain a +2 size bonus to their AC, a +2 size bonus on attack rolls, a –2 penalty on combat maneuver checks and to their CMD, and a +8 size bonus on Stealth checks. Brownies take up a space of 2-1/2 feet by 2-1/2 feet, so up to four Tiny creatures can fit into a single square. Brownies have a natural reach of 0 feet, meaning they can't reach into adjacent squares. They must enter an opponent's square to attack it in melee. This provokes an attack of opportunity from the opponent. Since they have no natural reach, they do not threaten the squares around them. Other creatures can move through those squares without provoking attacks of opportunity. Brownies cannot flank an enemy.
-        Slow Speed (­–1 RP): Brownies have a base speed of 20 feet.
-        Low-Light Vision (1 RP): Brownies can see twice as far as humans in conditions of dim light.
-        Illusion Resistance (1 RP): Brownies gain a +2 racial bonus on saving throws against illusion spells or effects.
-        Languages: Brownies begin play speaking Common and Sylvan. Brownies with high Intelligence scores can choose from the following: Draconic, Dwarven, Elven, Giant, and Gnome.

Standard Traits
-        Brownie Magic (2 RP): Brownies add +1 to the DC of any saving throws against illusion spells that they cast. Brownies with a Charisma score of 11 or higher also gain the following spell-like abilities: 1/day—dancing lights, mending, prestidigitation, ventriloquism. The caster level for these effects is equal to the brownie’s level. The DC for the spells is equal to 10 + the spell's level + the caster's Charisma modifier.
-        Camouflage (1 RP): Brownies gain a +4 racial bonus on Stealth checks in forests
-        Enhance Arrows (1 RP): A brownie may choose to spend his life force to enhance nonmagical arrows fired from his bow. The functions exactly like the arcane archer supernatural ability (substituting the brownie’s character level for his effective arcane archer level); except, every time the brownie chooses to use this ability he takes 1 hp of damage. This is untyped damage that cannot be negated by damage reduction.
-        Weapon Familiarity (1 RP): Brownies are proficient with bows and short swords.

Expanded Traits
-        Fey Damage Resistance (3 RP): Brownies gain DR 2/cold iron. This DR increases by 1/cold iron for every three character levels beyond 1st (to a maximum of 5/cold iron at 10th level).

The caster level for these effects is equal to the brownie’s level. The DC for the spells is equal to 10 + the spell's level + the caster's Charisma modifier. You must have the brownie magic trait to take this trait.
-        Superior Spell Resistance (3 RP): Brownies gain spell resistance equal to 11 + their character level.

Dryads (standard ability scores: +2 Dexterity, +2 Charisma, –2 Strength)
Dryads are tree-fey who prefer secluded woodlands far from humanoids in need of lumber. Dryads' main interests are their own survival and that of their beloved forests, and they have been known to magically coerce passersby into aiding them in tasks they cannot complete. They are more likely to be friendly to non-evil druids and rangers, as they recognize a mutual respect for or empathy with nature.

-        Normal Speed: Dryads have a base speed of 30 feet.

-        Tree Dependent (–2 RP): A dryad is mystically bonded to a single, enormous tree and must never stray more than 300 yards from it. Most dryad trees are oak trees, but other trees function as well (often having subtle influences on a specific dryad's personality and appearance). A dryad who moves 300 yards beyond her bonded tree immediately becomes sickened. Every hour thereafter, she must make a DC 15 Fortitude save to resist becoming nauseated for an hour. A dryad that is out of range of her bonded tree for 24 hours takes 1d6 points of Constitution damage, and another 1d6 points of Constitution damage every day that follows—eventually, this separation kills the dryad. A dryad can forge a bond with a new tree by performing a 24-hour ritual and making a successful DC 20 Will save.
-        Languages: Dryads begin play speaking Common and Sylvan. Dryads with high Intelligence scores can choose from the following: Draconic, Dwarven, Elven, Giant, and Gnome.

The caster level for these effects is equal to the dryad’s level. The DC for the spells is equal to 10 + the spell's level + the caster's Charisma modifier. You must have the dryad magic trait to take this trait.
-        Unfetter (1 RP): A dryad with this trait can travel more than 300 yards from her bonded tree without penalty for up to 10 minutes per character level per day. This duration can be broken up into 10 minute intervals. If this effect ends while the dryad is farther than 300 yards from her bonded tree, she immediately becomes sickened (see tree dependent trait above). In addition, she also gains a +4 racial bonus on Will saves to forge a bond with a new tree.

Fauns (standard ability scores: +2 Dexterity, +2 Charisma, –2 Intelligence)
Often mistaken for satyrs, fauns are far more benevolent than their unpredictable cousins. Many people use the two names interchangeably, a fact that irritates both fauns and satyrs. The vast majority of fauns are male, although unlike satyrs, females of this species do exist—they're simply less common than male fauns.

Essential Traits (4 RP)

In addition, three times per day the faun can use the pipes to augment the spell-like abilities included in faun magic (see below). Doing so is a swift action that adds +2 to the DC of the next faun magic spell-like ability it uses.

Expanded Traits

The caster level for these effects is equal to the faun’s level. The DC for the spells is equal to 10 + the spell's level + the caster's Charisma modifier. You must have the faun magic trait to take this trait.
-        Weapon Familiarity (1 RP): Fauns are proficient with bows and daggers.

Gathlains (standard ability scores: +2 Dexterity, +2 Charisma, –2 Constitution)
These strange fey creatures have a symbiotic relationship with an ivy-like plant that serves as their wings. The relationship is so close, it is impossible to separate fey from plant. Gathlains are sometimes helpful, often mischievous, and native to deep primeval forests and jungles, but are also prone to wanderlust and adventuring.

Essential Traits (5 RP)
-        Fey (1 RP)
-        Small: Gathlains are Small creatures and gain a +1 size bonus to their AC, a +1 size bonus on attack rolls, a –1 penalty to their Combat Maneuver Bonus and Combat Maneuver Defense, and a +4 size bonus on Stealth checks.

Cleric gathlains with the Plant domain use their domain powers and spells at +1 caster level. This trait does not give members of this race early access to level-based powers; it only affects powers that they could already use without this trait.
-        Fey Damage Reduction (3 RP): Gathlains gain DR 2/cold iron. This DR increases by 1/cold iron for every three character levels beyond 1st (to a maximum of 5/cold iron at 10th level).

-        Weapon Familiarity (1 RP): Gathlains are proficient with slings and spears.
-        Weather Savvy (1 RP): Gathlains are so in tune with the air and sky they can sense the slightest change in atmospheric conditions. They can spend a full-round action to predict the weather in an area for the next 24 hours. This prediction is always accurate, but cannot account for spells or supernatural effects that might alter the forecast.

Grigs (standard ability scores: +2 Dexterity, +2 Charisma, –2 Strength)
Grigs are tiny fey with the upper bodies of elf-like sprites and cricket bodies below. Their humanoid features vary wildly in individual appearance, but they usually wear their brown, silver, or green hair long and uncombed. In most cases, grigs' skin bears gold or green stripes or markings, and their legs are brightly colored. They prefer to eschew clothes entirely, wearing clothing only when such apparel has desirable magical effects. Grigs stand 1-1/2 feet tall, and weigh just under 10 pounds.

Essential Traits (7 RP)
-        Fey (1 RP)
-        Tiny (4 RP): Grigs are Tiny creatures and gain a +2 size bonus to Dexterity and a –2 size penalty to Strength. Grigs gain a +2 size bonus to their AC, a +2 size bonus on attack rolls, a –2 penalty on combat maneuver checks and to their CMD, and a +8 size bonus on Stealth checks. Grigs take up a space of 2-1/2 feet by 2-1/2 feet, so up to four Tiny creatures can fit into a single square. Grigs have a natural reach of 0 feet, meaning they can't reach into adjacent squares. They must enter an opponent's square to attack it in melee. This provokes an attack of opportunity from the opponent. Since they have no natural reach, they do not threaten the squares around them. Other creatures can move through those squares without provoking attacks of opportunity. Grigs cannot flank an enemy.
-        Normal Speed: Grigs have a base speed of 30 feet.
-        Low-Light Vision (1 RP): Grigs can see twice as far as humans in conditions of dim light.
-        Fiddle (1 RP): Grigs are capable of rubbing their legs together like a cricket to create a surprisingly pleasant sound not unlike that of a tiny fiddle. As a standard action, a grig can create a catchy tune that compels any creature within a 20-foot spread to dance and caper. A creature can resist this compulsion by making a Will save (DC 10 plus the grig’s Charisma modifier). Creatures that fail are compelled to dance and shuffle their feet, and are effectively staggered as long as the grig continues to fiddle. A grig can maintain this effect for up to 10 rounds per day by concentrating. Once a creature makes the save against a grig's fiddle, it is immune to further fiddle effects from that grig for 24 hours. This is a sonic mind-affecting effect.
-        Languages: Grigs begin play speaking Common and Sylvan. Grigs with high Intelligence scores can choose from the following: Draconic, Elven, Gnome, Goblin, and Halfling.

Standard Traits
-        Fey Damage Resistance (3 RP): Grigs gain DR 2/cold iron. This DR increases by 1/cold iron for every three character levels beyond 1st (to a maximum of 5/cold iron at 10th level).

-        Superior Flight (4 RP): The fly speed of grigs with this trait improves to 40 feet with average maneuverability (+0 bonus on Fly checks). You must have the flight trait to take this trait.

-        Weapon Familiarity (1 RP): Grigs are proficient with bows and short swords.

Korreds (standard ability scores: +4 Strength, –2 Intelligence, –2 Wisdom, –2 Charisma; 1 RP)
Korreds are an ancient fey race who like forested areas with nice, rocky ground. They resemble small, wild-haired humanoids with wild, knotted hair. Korreds especially like to dance in ancient stone circles within forest glades, often led by satyrs with panpipes. They are a shy race and do not take kindly to outsiders discovering them, even by accident.

Essential Traits (5 RP; 6 RP with standard ability scores)
-        Fey (1 RP)

-        Low-Light Vision (1 RP): Korreds can see twice as far as humans in conditions of dim light.
-        Animated Hair (3 RP): A korred's hair is constantly writhing and twitching. As a free action, a korred can cause its long hair to reach out and interfere with adjacent creatures—tugging at clothes and weapons, tangling feet and arms, tickling, and generally making a nuisance of itself. The korred can select which adjacent targets are affected by its animated hair. These targets must make a successful Reflex save (DC 10 + 1/2 the korred's character level + the korred's Dexterity modifier) each round to avoid becoming entangled for 1 round.
-        Languages: Korreds begin play speaking Common and Sylvan. Korreds with high Intelligence scores can choose from the following: Draconic, Dwarven, Gnome, Goblin, and Orc.

Standard Traits

-        Stone Stride (4 RP): This ability works like tree stride, except it requires loose boulders at least as large as the korred, and only has a range of 30 feet. The korred can use this ability once per round as a standard action.
-        Stunning Laugh (3 RP): Three times per day as a standard action, a korred can unleash a strange laugh that forces all creatures within a 30-foot burst to make a successful Fortitude save (DC 10 + 1/2 the korred's character level + the korred's Charisma modifier) or become stunned for 1d2 rounds. This is a sonic, mind-affecting effect. Fey are immune to this ability.
-        Superior Spell Resistance (3 RP): Korreds gain spell resistance equal to 11 + their character level.
-        Weapon Familiarity (1 RP): Korreds are proficient with clubs and greatclubs.

Leprechauns (standard ability scores: +2 Dexterity, +2 Charisma, –4 Strength; –1 RP)
Leprechauns are small, fun-loving tricksters. They are most commonly found in forests and share the close connection with nature that is possessed by most fey creatures. Leprechauns love playing tricks on unknowing passersby—almost as much as they love a fine bottle of wine and a plateful of hot food in their bellies. They often steal something of worth from adventurers just to provoke a chase. Using their ability to disappear at will to its full potential, they wait until their victims appear to be about to give up the chase before reappearing once more to let the chase resume. They are not greedy creatures, and eventually drop what they've stolen, slipping away while their angry pursuers claim the lost property. The exception is gold—leprechauns love gold and often hoard it in secret, hidden places.

Essential Traits (7 RP; 6 RP with standard ability scores)
-        Fey (1 RP)

-        Shillelagh (2 RP): Any nonmagical club or quarterstaff wielded by a leprechaun becomes a weapon with a +1 enhancement bonus on attack and damage rolls. A quarterstaff gains this enhancement for both ends of the weapon. It deals damage as if it were two size categories larger (a Small club or quarterstaff so transmuted deals 1d8 points of damage), +1 for its enhancement bonus. These effects only occur when the weapon is wielded by the leprechaun.

LeShay (standard ability scores: +2 Dexterity, +2 Charisma, –2 Strength)
Some scholars presume leShay are the product of elves breeding with azatas in the distant past. Others assume leShay were the first Fey to walk Færie. Either or both may be true, but the leShay themselves do not speak of their origins to any but their own; not even other Fey. LeShay are the lords and protectors of all Fey, and can be found guarding the secret portals connecting the Material Plane and Færie. LeShay are similar to quintessential elves in appearance, except the points of their ears are not as prominent and the white's of their eyes are multihued; giving them an otherworldly countenance.

In addition to the standard and expanded traits below, a leShay may also select traits from standard and expanded traits available to elves (see Part 1). This is a variation on the leShay race (found here).

Essential Traits (6 RP)
-        Fey (1 RP)
-        Medium: LeShay are Medium creatures and receive no bonuses or penalties due to their size.
-        Normal Speed: LeShay have a base speed of 30 feet.
-        Low-Light Vision (1 RP): LeShay can see twice as far as humans in conditions of dim light.
-        LeShay Immunities (2 RP): LeShay are immune to magic sleep effects and get a +2 saving throw bonus against enchantment spells and effects.
-        Spirit Weapon (2 RP): As a move action, a leShay can form a weapon from her very life essence. The leShay chooses whether it will deal bludgeoning, piercing, or slashing damage. The leShay may change the damage type of an existing weapon, or may summon a new spirit weapon with a different damage type, as a full-round action; otherwise, the spirit weapon retains the last damage type chosen every time it is summoned. Regardless of the damage type, the weapon deals 1d6 points of damage and has a critical range of 19-20/x2. The weapon can be broken (it has hardness 10 and 10 hit points); however, a leShay can simply create another on her next move action. The moment she relinquishes her grip on her weapon, it dissipates. A spirit weapon is considered a magic weapon for the purpose of overcoming damage reduction. A leShay is proficient with her spirit weapon.
-        Languages: LeShay begin play speaking Elven and Sylvan. LeShay with high Intelligence scores can choose from the following: Celestial, Common, Draconic, Gnome, Halfling, Lashunta, and Undercommon.

Standard Traits
-        Duplicit Magic (2 RP): LeShay add a +1 bonus to the DC of any saving throws against illusion spells that they cast. LeShay with a Charisma score of 11 or higher also gain the following spell-like ability: 1/day—disguise self (any drow, elf, or half-elf). The caster level for this effect is equal to the leShay’s level.
-        Magical Linguist (2 RP): LeShay add a +1 bonus to the DC of spells they cast that have the language-dependent descriptor or that create glyphs, symbols, or other magical writings. They also gain a +2 racial bonus on saving throws against such spells. LeShay with a Charisma score of 11 or higher also gain the following spell-like abilities: 1/day—arcane markcomprehend languagesmessageread magic. The caster level for these effects is equal to the leShay’s level.

-        Gifted Linguist (2 RP): LeShay gain a +4 racial bonus on Linguistics checks, and learn 2 languages each time they gain a rank in Linguistics.
-        Soul Bond (4 RP): Some leShay gain an external manifestation of their soul in the form of a familiar. This functions like the wizard's arcane bond class feature (treating the leShay’s character level as her effective wizard level), except as noted here. This familiar is actually a part of the leShay’s soul. If it is killed, the leShay is no longer immortal. Her lifespan becomes that of an elf. At 3rd level or later, a leShay may transform her familiar into an improved familiar by taking the Improved Familiar feat (treating the leShay’s character level as her effective wizard level for meeting the prerequisites) and performing a ritual which costs 100 gp in materials times the minimum arcane caster level for the improved familiar. If the leShay takes levels in a class that grants the arcane bond class feature, she may take bonded object option, gain a second familiar, or gain Improved Familiar as a bonus feat, though she may not benefit from the Improved Familiar bonus feat until she reaches character level 3rd.

Nixies (standard ability scores: +2 Dexterity, +2 Charisma, –4 Strength; –1 RP)
Nixies are guardians of ponds, rivers, lakes, and springs. They prefer dwelling in idyllic places, which they protect from the depredations of predators and careless humanoids. While this often involves confusing enemies and driving foes away, nixies are not afraid of spilling blood to protect their homes—though they prefer not to resort to such means unless completely necessary. Nixies are 4 feet tall and rarely weigh more than 45 pounds.

Nymphs (standard ability scores: +4 Charisma, –2 Strength, –2 Intelligence; 2 RP)
Many have lost their lives in vain search of the beauty of the nymph, and many more to the madness and obsession their grace has upon minds and bodies unprepared for their companionship. Yet the nymph herself is not a cruel creature—a guardian of nature's purest places and most beautiful realms, she treats those who respect her and her abode with kindness, and may even favor someone who takes her fancy with magical gifts. Yet those who would seek to abuse or harm her or her home quickly find that behind her beauty is a fierce protector more than capable of defending her charge.

A bard who has a nymph for a muse in this way can use his bardic performance for an additional number of rounds per day equal to his nymph muse's Charisma modifier. The nymph retains a link to her token and its carrier as if she had cast a status spell on the carrier. The nymph can end this effect at any time as a free action.

Pechs (standard ability scores: +2 Strength, +2 Wisdom; 2 RP)
Untold ages ago, the pechs served forgotten masters in the deepest caverns of the world. In time, their masters moved on, leaving the pechs bereft of guidance. Some sought refuge in seemingly safer tunnels nearer the surface. The unspeakable horrors they encountered there transformed them into derros over the course of several generations. Those pechs that stayed close to their ancestral caverns survive to this day, though in such small numbers and in such isolation that few of the surface world know of their existence.

Satyrs, known in some regions as fauns, are debauched and hedonistic creatures of the deepest, most primeval parts of the woods.

The satyr's use of his pipes does not count toward his uses per day of his spell-like abilities, and if separated from them he may continue to use his standard abilities.
