Physical Description: Tiny fey with beady eyes and strange multicolored hair, fairies appear almost exactly similar to human children or gnomes, save for their incredibly small stature and big grins. Fairies, being able to reproduce asexually, are thus always female.

Society: Fairies live in what they call “hives” where gatherings of them get together, and try to live peacefully. Though some make home in a human city or two, this isn’t done very often, and often leads to the fairies being enslaved.

Relations: Bubbly and kind, fairies try to get along with anyone, no matter how scary or evil they may look. While this leads to their death sometimes, this thought never really crosses their mind when talking to gargantuan dragons or when inviting orcs to games of tag.

Alignment and Religion: Fairies’ good nature and happy-go-lucky attitude leads to most of them becoming Neutral Good, however those with a more devious sense of humor and more ties to the dark fey end up as Chaotic Neutral or Neutral Evil.

Adventurers: Fairy kind does not live for very long, often dying before their human friends even reach adulthood. This, however, is a very big incentive for them to start adventuring because they have only so much time to do so. Fairies often become Sorcerers, Paladins, or even Swashbucklers.

Fairy Age: Fairies mature completely around 3 years old, and live up to around 20 years old. The oldest ever fairy was recorded at 25 years and 7 months old when she died.

Names: Weety, Miney, Yubu, Fraylo, Woma, Vuvu, Maya-eyu

Standard Racial Traits

  • Ability Score Modifiers: Fairies are cute and quick on their feet, but their carefree nature often leads to their death. They gain +2 Dexterity, +2 Charisma, and -2 Wisdom.
  • Size: Fairies are tiny sized, and gain a +2 size bonus to Dexterity and a –2 size penalty to Strength. Fairies gain a +2 size bonus to their AC, a +2 size bonus on attack rolls, a –2 penalty on combat maneuver checks and to their CMD, and a +8 size bonus on Stealth checks. Fairies take up a space of 2-1/2 feet by 2-1/2 feet, so up to four fairies can fit into a single square. Fairies have a natural reach of 0 feet, meaning they can’t reach into adjacent squares. They must enter an opponent’s square to attack it in melee. This provokes an attack of opportunity from the opponent. Since they have no natural reach, they do not threaten the squares around them. Other creatures can move through those squares without provoking attacks of opportunity. Fairies cannot flank an enemy with their natural reach.
  • Type: Fairies are Fey with the Fairy subtype.
  • Base Speed: Fairies have a base land speed of 5 feet, and a fly speed of 30 feet with average maneuverability.
  • Languages: Fairies begin play speaking Common and Sylvan. Fairies with high Intelligence scores can choose from the following: Gnome, Elven, Protean, Celestial, Auran, and Aquan. See the Linguistics skill page for more information about these languages.

Defense Racial Traits

  • Fairy Resistance: Fairies gain DR 5/Cold Iron.

Feat and Skill Racial Traits

  • Pleading Stare: Fairies gain a +2 bonus on Diplomacy checks. This bonus doubles for every step below Indifferent on the Starting Attitude chart they are (Maximum +8 vs. Hostile).

Senses Racial Traits

  • Low-Light Vision: Fairies can see twice as far in dim light.

Other Racial Traits

  • Fairy Dust: As a move action, a fairy can flap her wings to spread dust from them onto an ally that she occupies a square with. For a number of rounds equal to 1/2 the fairy’s level, the target gains a fly speed of 15 feet if they did not already have one. If they can already fly, they gain +5 feet to their fly speed. This does not affect other fairies.
  • Me Too!: Fairies count as humanoids and outsider (native) for the purpose of effects that affect these two types (such as Enlarge Person and Hold Person).
