First World Problems
Unveil the mysteries of primeval legends, encounter ancient creatures from a time before time, and prepare to enter a preternatural world where nothing is permanent and everything is alive and vibrant. Now the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game explores 10 of the Golarion’s most iconic and well-loved fey creatures in Pathfinder Campaign Setting: Fey Revisited!
With Fey Revisited, you can immerse your game in the rich lore of legendary beings such as vigilant tree-bonded dryads, fanciful goat-legged satyrs, and blindingly beautiful nymphs, or release lurking evils like sadistic redcaps and diverse hordes of maniacal gremlins. Each entry includes how these embodiments of nature might guard or corrupt the world, details on the unique tokens they bestow upon favored mortals, and a ready-to-use threat or ally of each fey race.
Inside this book, you’ll find fey creatures like:
Dryads, guardians of the forest who ensnare mortals’ minds for their own goals of preservation.
Leprechauns, folkloric pranksters rumored to hide great riches available to those who find their stash.
Norns, the powerful beings said to pull at the threads of fate.
Nymphs, stunningly beautiful fey who strike blind those who peer upon them.
Redcaps, blasphemous and sadistic murderers known for dipping their woolly caps into the blood of their victims.
Satyrs, creatures of whimsy and strength who use their musical pipes to haunt and bewilder.
Other capricious creatures, such as a handful of types of pesky gremlins, terrifying nuckelavees, elusive rusalkas, and playful and quirky sprites.
Nymph is the only one I really don't dig, especially as they are just non planty dryads, I rather saw Quicklings. (very interesting creatures)
THe others on the list are all cool tho!
That's the great thing about the revisited line though: making boring, cliched critters interesting again. Which pretty much the entire lineup of fey could use. They're generally either pms tinkerbells or, worse, emo/goth stand-ins impossible to differentiate from vamps. I hope for a breath of fresh air, and I look forward to what this means for the Reign of Winter campaign. Hopefully these fey will be taking nods from eastern and central european myth.
The Norn would still be interesting but yes Pixies are more iconic so I thought for sure they would make the list. Though there is a chance that this list is not the final version they will use so who knows.
People like mites and hate nuckalevee, strange world we live in.
I never cared for Mites, ettercap (vermin control) + Gremlin + Goblin (weakest link creature) does it all for me, so wouldn't mind if they aren't there, Vexgit (the technical destroyers) and Jinkin (cursed) gremlins are my favorites, but i'm sure al gremlins get a mention in there.
