Race(s) for an NPC fey party


Advice


In my game, I need an NPC party made of fey. For game reasons, they need to be creatures that started out not very powerful (about CR 3 or less and CR 1/4 is fine) and have grown powerful through adventuring.

They will be fighting the PCs at level 16 or higher, so I expect that most of them have a lot of class levels, although an advanced form with a lot of extra natural hit dice is possible, if that development is plausible on the timescale of PC leveling.

A mixed race party is also possible and probably likely. (Good fighter races rarely are also good caster races.) There will definitely be a straight up fight, although some previous indirect interaction is possible.

What would work to make a good party?

Fine print: I am running the original pathfinder, not the playtest. 3rd party sources are fine.

Some of the more classic fey given piles of class levels would work out pretty well. A mixed party could be something like

Atomie Swashbuckler (Mouser)
Satyr Skald (Bacchanal)
Brownie Sorcerer (Fey)
Nymph Witch (Seducer)
Spriggan Bloodrager (Fey)

Red Cap Slayer would be pretty brutal.


I've seen an atomie magus (spiderhawk archetype; 3rd party) in play. She was a solid melee character. Also a useful missile weapon for the sorcerer with telekinetic charge that I was playing.


Jinkin Witch is actually what I'm playing in a friend's campaign...
