They use "Fey-zers" of course!

The chaotic nature of Fey-zers makes them perfect for combating the Borg.

As for the OP, I'd say they probably dabble in madness and zipping between stars. I can only imagine how many Lurkers in Light there are around VY Canis Majoris. *shudder*

Maybe the fey are quite happy that nowadays everything is made of high-tech composites and not cold iron.

They're also probably laughing their bum-blebees off that the planet most of the humanoids who bother them come from is gone.

"Oh, your gods stole your planet did they? Not answering your questions, are they? Feeling some abandonment? HMMMMM?"

CRUSHING IT!

Space is mutable: seems like a perfect place for dreamers and the courtly host to alter it.

No reason why CI can't be in composites. Nothing beats DR nonmagically like a mithri-adamantine-cold iron composite.

Fey are nature spirits, and space is nature. Since space is an ocean, it would follow there are space nixies and void nymphs.

Fey do the same thing they did in Pathfinder. Nature is on the planets. The space in between is just stars, rocks, and vacuum. I think magic could be used to do a lot of things. Take an asteroid for example, you cast an airwall spell to hold in an atmosphere around an asteroid, then a planar gravity spell to give it a planar gravity along a gravity plane similar to spelljammer. In the Spelljammer Universe the natural laws in that universe does these things, in Starfinder, I bet there are specific spells that could do exactly the same thing, then you add water, plants animals and soil, and you can have an island in space. I think spaceships might have some magical enchantments to create on board gravity, and you could have an air wall spell to hold in air onto hangars where you can launch fighters out into space. Using real physics to create gravity would be real hard, so I say don't, use magic instead! An Airwall spell would substitute for the force fields used in Star Wars to hold in the atmosphere in the hangar decks so people working on the ships don't have to wear spacesuits. In fact there could be spells that allow people to move about in space without a space suit. Though of course a spell caster is limited by he number of slots he has, it might be easier to obtain a spacesuit than to learn the spell.

It's also full of deadly radiation and other things hostile to life, but it's still nature.

Also pathfinder already has spaceborne life, if you insist on defining nature as containing life.


Yeah but space is pretty sterile, excepting living spaceships and the like. A skeleton would have no problem in space, a Zombie would rapidly turn into a Mummy, because all of its internal fluids would boil out. A Space Ghost would have no problem Golems, particularly the Iron and stone golems would have no problem.

Asteroid Oreads?
Stellar Wind Sylphs?

Yes, I know PF used those names for their planetouched, which bothers me. :I

The recent First World book suggests that the Fey and the First World aren't just about nature, but about evolution in all its many forms. I'd imagine you could find fey wherever unusual lifeforms could be found, even if those lifeforms don't really look like "organic" life. Constructs with emergent intelligence, worlds that exist entirely in computer code, plasma "organisms" living in the heart of stars, beasts on frozen planets with glacial metabolisms, or creatures on burning worlds that live and die in seconds.

I like the idea of frost fey cavorting on comets, pech herding meteorites, and other crazy stuff. Space is huge! Lots of room for nature and fey to play around in.

And like Dr. Malcom said "Life, uh, finds a way."

Maybe any sufficiently advanced virtual reality causes overlap with the First World and lets fey mess with you.

Why, space fey do what they always do. They kidnap space babies, replace them in their cribs with space fetches, and head back to their space castles where they space raise the space babies into space servants.


Whatever they fey like, of course!

That said, something like a "void nereid" makes a lot of sense and translates well - drowning, veils warding against the dangers of space, invisibility (unless in air, making them akin to space-ghosts), the ability to spray poisonous/radiation-style stuff, and some sort of void elementals or something. Similarly, nixies.

Somewhat terrifying and full of "ick"-factor, is the concept of grig-based Dominion' ships...

What's really interesting is meshing or comparing/contrasting these with kytons or other evil creatures that would be fundamentally opposed to grig freedom.

Then you have grigs (and probably flumphs!) opposing these monstrosities, and fiddling (and far-, uh, "gassing") their way to freedom and destruction of evil...

Anything associated with Desna, which includes fey, would be phenomenal for space-style creatures, which fits in with dreaming, as noted above.

It's the future so all cookies are now in pill form. Consequently, they also have bluetooth.

I actually wonder now: With the loss of Golarion, is the First World still there?

The First World is a sort of rough draft of the material plane. It's less of a reflection of the material (such as in the case of the Shadow Plane), and more of a testing ground for what was to become the material. Nothing should really change in term of the Material Plane, save the abscence of points of access through Golarion. (This assumes none of the lore established by now is retconned, or that the Gap did not have any adverse effects on the multiverse.)

Flying space tortoises with entire ecosystems on their backs. Perhaps these ecosystems are flat and circular. To keep them from tipping they have pachyderms shock absorbers

Now I want to see what happened to the Shadow Plane. Or what Space Shadow Plane would look like. Would it be double-shadow?
