Embrace the Fey

All the trickery and wild power of the fey are yours to command with Pathfinder Player Companion: Legacy of the First World. Let the wilderness inspire your heroes with a spectrum of new ways to play fey-touched characters, along with new powers for classes seeking to strengthen their bonds with nature. Choose whether you draw your might from the vitality of the land, the brutality of vicious beasts, or even your faith in the fey realm's inscrutable masters, the Eldest.

Inside this book, you'll find:

  • Character options for worshipers of the enigmatic Eldest, allowing members of all classes to manifest their god's influence in unexpected ways.
  • New racial options for both gnomes and gathlains, two player-character races closely tied to the First World.
  • A host of new archetypes, feats, magic items, spells, and other fey-inspired character options!

This Pathfinder Player companion is intended for use with the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game and the Pathfinder campaign setting, but it can easily be incorporated into any fantasy world.

I love the fey as well, they are my second favorite type of creature right after dragons of course.

With Linnorms you (technically) get the best of both!

And there's the JABBERWOCKY!


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber, Companion Subscriber

The Jabberwocky and Linnorms are still technically dragons, though I wonder if there are any other types of dragons unique to the first world or at least were created/evolved there.

Fairy Dragons. :-)

Two things:
1. Jabberwocky is the name of a poem, the creature cited in the poem is called The Jabberwock:
"Beware The Jabberwock, my son...
And as in uffish thought he stood The Jabberwock with eyes of flame...
And hast thou slain The Jabberwock, come to my arms, my beamish boy..."
Although, I don't know what the Pathfinder calls the creature in the Beastiaries, but I expect they keep to the name for the creature and not confuse it with the title for the poem.

2. I don't know about in Pathfinder, but if you want fairies, dragons, and fairy dragons, I recommend reading the Fablehaven book series by Brandon Mull, it is 5 books long (and dragons don't really enter the mix until book 4), and it is technically written for children, but it is one of my favorite series to this day, so adults can definitely enjoy it!

Come to think of it we don't anything about fairy dragons in the Pathfinder setting. It would be nice for them to get a revisited/unleashed treatment one day.

It is indeed the Jabberwock.

Jabberwocky is it's nickname or possibly pet name;)

It's also the name of the Monty Python film. ^_^


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber, Companion Subscriber

Technically it is not a Monty Python film but was directed by Peter Gillian, in fact his first as a solo director.

I can't wait to find out what classes get some love in this one.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber, Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I love the part of season two of Fargo where Mike Milligan recites it.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber, Companion Subscriber

Never watched the show or could get into the original movie.

Some alternate versions of the fey sorcerer bloodline would be cool, a first world/fey themed oracle mystery, some fey based witch hexes, etc.

An alchemist archetype that replaces bombs with pixie dust, replace mutagen with alterself/polymorph potion/elixir, and replaces alchemy with spell casting(druid or sorcerer/wizard spell list) would be cool.


The fey are just in need of a cool humanoid like medium fairies; nor a tiny nor a small, but a medium fairy category.


Will there be alternative fey blooded abilities like there was for draconic character in Legacy of Dragons?

Those were already printed in Heroes of the Wild; Fey Magic, Fey Thoughts, and Low-Light Vision.

Lots of them!

This isn't a reprint, but I presume they thought that Legacy of the First World would go nicely with the semi-recently released The First World, Realm of the Fey campaign setting book.

Exactly right. You don't need one product to find the other valuable, but the more you know about the Eldest, for example, the more closely tied some of the Legacy of the First World rules will seem.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber, Companion Subscriber

I really hope that the swashbuckler will get a fey/first world themed archetype.

Some fey/first world themed feats would be cool especially if they grant fey themed abilities like low-light vision, DR2/cold iron, SR, spell powers, etc.

I hope there will be some fun stuff for the wood kinetiicst element, sorcerer/bloodrager bloodline, oracle mystery/curse, witch hexes, and other interesting options for classes that are not related to feats, spells, archetypes, and magic items.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Dragon, the Feyborn alternate racial trait from Heroes of the Wild grants low-light vision. The rest of your suggestions could be worth a feat, perhaps two.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber, Companion Subscriber

Well the feat could grant more then low-light vision and be a possible feat chain for more interesting and/or more powerful options;)

Actually now that you mention it, isn't there a trait that grants low-light vision?

Yup - the dragon-bloodline one from Ultimate Campaign.


Pathfinder Starfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

I'm hoping for an Fey Knight vigilante archetype, that incorporates the Druidish options from the vigilante playtest.

(Unless something similar has already been done, in which case, look away! Look away!)


Is there any way to bump this to the end of March?

;)


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber, Companion Subscriber

As long as it doesn't get pushed back, I will be happy.

Lantern Lodge

Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber, Campaign Setting, Companion, Maps, Modules, Roleplaying Game, Tales Subscriber; Pathfinder Comics Subscriber

Really super excited about this!! I love fey stuff; loved heroes of the wild and the first world campaign setting book.

My one plea is please dont waste any pages with a drake companion repeat. That was awful.

If you include a fey companion option (which would be ace) please make it playable:-)


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber, Companion Subscriber

I am more hoping for some form of fey based spells and/or fey focused summoning spells.

We already have fey based eidolons for the summoner(both versions) and I doubt we will see a fey based version of the drake rules but who knows.


Dragon78 wrote:

In the First World campaign setting book they already gave a list of alternative fey creatures for the summon monster and summon nature's ally spells. For Pathfinder Society they ruled that you could take these alternative creatures if you worship one of the Eldest and give up the outsiders normally on those lists. I'm looking forward to filling the battlefield with leprechauns.

I really enjoyed the campaign setting book and look forward to this one.

What are "Gathlains" and which source are they from?

They're from Bestiary 4, though I believe Lands of Conflict noted some live in Fangwood.


Luthorne,

While it is correct, they actually first appeared in Advanced Race Guide.

I know, I thought about linking it as well, but it has considerably less information about them, so I figured it was probably best to just provide the most recent source available on the PRD.


Understood Luthorne. I just thought I'd mention that first.

Doggo, do not fetch arrows while still in monster.

I wonder, is this the first time we have had the iconic druid and hunter on the same cover art before?

That's one HUGE grodair!!!


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Such a cool cover! Love the iconic hunter. Very much a Fey-fan as well. Excited to see if this expands the feyborn traits of Heroes of the Wild.


2 people marked this as a favorite.

That's an awesome cover... My two favorite classes are in it! =O

Legacy of Dragons was an interesting book, and introduced a way to bring draconinc flavor and traits into our characters without the need of them being actual dragons.

I'm really happy to see the fey type getting a Legacy book right after the dragons, as this is my second favorite type right after dragons. Ironical, right? Luck me! *-*

I hope the second book is just as useful and filled with flavorful options just as the first.

New racial options for gnomes and gathlains sounds awesome. Too bad naiads came out a little late to be in this one.

... or did they?

It would certainly be nice if naiads were covered in this - would love some more information about them - but I'm certainly not expecting it.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber, Companion Subscriber

I would be happy if they did but I am not getting my hopes up.
