Knee-high to a human, this large-headed creature has an almost manically friendly look on its expressive face.

Happy Helper (Ex)

A mythic brownie can use animal messenger, charm animal, charm person, and unseen servant as spell-like abilities, and a creature (or unseen servant) affected by these spells gains the same bonus on Craft skill checks as the brownie itself, and the brownie always adds its surge die as a bonus on Charisma checks to persuade an affected creature to help it perform its Craft (or to use a Craft, Perform, or Profession skill in which the target is trained), including helping to lift, carry, or clean up. As a full-round action, a mythic brownie can grant a creature 1 rank of any Craft skill in which it is untrained; this skill rank persists for 8 hours.

Whistle While You Work (Su)

A mythic brownie can whistle a merry tune, tell jokes, play a fiddle, or otherwise lighten the mood of those nearby and help them to work well together. The brownie can use bardic performance (countersong, fascinate, or inspire competence +2) as a 3rd-level bard, using this ability up to 10 rounds per day. In addition, if an ally affected by the brownie’s performance is fatigued or affected by fear or a harmful emotion effect, the brownie can expend one use of its mythic power to grant the creature a new saving throw, adding the brownie’s surge die as a bonus on that save. It cannot grant itself a new saving throw, though it can grant one to another brownie.


Environment temperate forests or plains
Organization solitary, gang (2–5), or band (7–12)
Treasure standard

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.

When facing danger, brownies rarely engage in combat, preferring instead to confound and confuse their attackers in order to buy enough time for escape. Content with honest toil and the love of their kin, brownies maintain a pacifist nature, only harassing creatures to run them off or punish them for an insult. Despite this nature, all brownies carry a blade. They refer to their swords with a hint of disgust, and jokingly call their blades the “final trick,” using them only in the direst of consequences.

Honest to a fault, brownies take freely, but always repay their debt through work or leave something behind as an offering. They may eat an apple from a farmer’s orchard but will harvest the entire tree as repayment. A brownie might eat an entire pie left on a windowsill, only to straighten up the kitchen or wash the dishes. A brownie can share a home with a family for years and years while avoiding detection. A family that is aware of a brownie usually finds this a beneficial relationship and leaves dishes of milk, pieces of fruit, trinkets, and sometimes even wine as gifts. In exchange, the brownie keeps the home clean, mends clothes, repairs tools, and shoos away vermin and small predators. Bragging about having a brownie in the house is the best way to lose one. Brownies distrust foxes and fear wolves and tend to avoid farms with dogs.
