Quillians - humanoid porcupine with isolationist tendencies

Quillians

A humanoid porcupine, with one to three-inch quills that covers their entire body that lays flat on their skin. Larger quills from five to eight inches are found on their chest and back, and on top of their head, from a distance appearing as long straight hair. Their quills prick upwards when excited or agitated; a few allies can even read their emotions in this fashion. Their unexposed skin colour is brown. Most have blue or green eyes but those with unique destinies may have different colours.

Personality: Quillians are isolationists, preferring not to interact with others. In their own group, they have a range of emotions, but are little shown outside of their immediate friends and allies.

Physical Description: Five feet tall humanoids with quills of various sizes covering their bodies. Most tend not to wear armor, but warriors will wear chain mail or a chain shirt.

Relations: They tend to avoid conflict, and can live in harmony with nature, elves and other fey beings. They will often get into territorial disputes with Minotaur, Giants, evil Naga, Ettercap and any evil creatures that attempt to control territory in forest. While they do not provoke trouble, they won’t back down either.

Alignment: They tend towards neutral good. Individuals within tribes do exist, and these tend towards chaotic good more than other lawful tendencies. They expel anyone who breaks tribal law or tradition.

Lands: Nomads that wander several of the largest untouched forests through-out Nyssa.

Religion: Quillians have a long druidic tradition; clerics and gods are mostly a foreign concept to them. As fey, these humanoids have a strong connection with forest spirits, and do their best to live peacefully with them.

Language: They understand Faerie, and their own tongue – Quillian. Most adventuring Quillian also usually speak common or elven.

Adventurers: Quillians often leave the tribe to discover the world or to be able to add to the tribe’s collective knowledge. They usually adventure as rangers or fighters, and do their best to succeed in societies they little understand, always preferring rural or even wastelands to civilizations. Those who succeed away, can take on other classes.

Fuul or Fool - Small, pink furred winged elven cat

This is probably the fastest creature I have ever stated up. Got a chance to volunteer for a one-night event early next month, and this is the focus of the game... find the Fool!

 ECOLOGY

Treasure Value Half Standard (gems, coins, keys)

A Fuul (usually mispronounced Fool) is a fey creature long beloved by Elves and other woodland creatures.  It appears as a small, pink furred, double tailed, winged cat. They form very strong attachments to those some who travel into the wilder parts of the forest. They are quite intelligent, and can understand words spoken or written in the lands around them but they cannot speak - they meow or purr.

Some are trained to act as the hunted foe in an Elven forest game, where the challengers must capture the fool using nets. It is difficult for the challengers to use magic against the Fuul as it can redirect any spell cast near it.

Combat

Misdirect Magic (Su): Twice a round, a Foul can misdirect any magic cast at or near it.  They usually redirect it at the caster, or safely away from other creatures. Their tails actually misdirect the spells, if the tails are cut off they lose this ability.

Agility (Su): A Fuul may act as if hasted for a number of rounds per day equal to their Charisma modifier. This ability can be activated or suppressed as a free action.

Fey Forest Wandering Events Table

Fey Forest Wandering Monster Table

This table lists many of the most common creatures and situations found in a mortal forest that borders fey lands. Use it to generate random wandering monsters or ideas about what characters can find in this situation but my general rule is if you want something specific then use it and don't bother with rolling on the WMT.


Fey Domain

What would a fey domain be like? In an environment where everything can charm you or trick you by using illusions, you just can't run away or try to attack it, well you could, but you won't find it an easy way to overcome your challenges. The inhabitants are smart and have magical abilities, and unlike in places of evil, they are much more likely to have allies around the corner, not someone willing to hide you or can be paid off. Yes, be careful, but there are many wonders and magical situations that can throw you for a loop and your logic may not help you. So - what do you need to do? Stay on the inhabitants good side, be entertaining, bribe them with food or drink, speak with them, drink with them, tell them stories and have lots of trinkets that you can give away when they catch someone's eye.

Most faerie communities are much like human ones, there are places to eat, drink, have a party, & trade but for most citizens the danger is in etiquette not in direct physical threats. Communities are made up of groups of like minded friends and allies,  not caring the purpose or alignment of strangers, as long as they obey and are there to have fun. Fey care little for official rules but tradition means much more to them, which is why these magical beings can easily ignore alignment of their fellow fae, as long as they follow protocol. Everyone knows what is and is not acceptable and as long as they stick to the unstated traditions they are mostly fine with their kin. And even if they don't follow tradition, they know not to get caught and are not seen in their community after breaking any of the rules.

Fey in my worlds will usually know the bad reputations and alignments of their kin, but they rarely care. Action and not belief is how they judge their kin, so even if a leprechaun has stolen from you, you probably deserved it. Witches are very common and are tolerated, because they don't generally cause problems in the fairy-lands to the faeries. If someone has caused problems in the human or forest lands, only if the directly wronged party comes and asks for retribution can anything happen.

When they do break the traditions or laws of outsiders there are a number of ways to make amends. One is to reverse the actions, that caused the problem. Another method is to bribe the wronged party for them to keep quiet. Unlike in many humanoid society, doing additional actions will not make the problem disappear as the faerie will not look the other way. In most cases who you kill is less important then why, but for the outsiders they rarely fathom this until too late.

Unlike in many other places, magic is open and freely utilized. Fey have no compunction about using it for their purpose, illusions and charms are used by many to trick both native and visitor. Other fey
believe that this is fine, as long as the person either is not harmed or deserved it. Tricking a visitor for fun is acceptable, but not to cruelly torment them if they have done nothing to provoke it.

One of the biggest differences in how I run these stories is that the Feylands are both a specific location and not. There is a mystical domain that most fey can access and where most reside. Unlike other non-worldly places it is not wholly separate from mortal lands. Humans, may have walked under a bridge or through a door a hundred times, yet the next time they might find themselves in the feylands because of the time or date or other magic in the air. Elves and other fey allies understand these symbiotic place-links, and do their best to shield their homes from these accidental fey-portals but some other mortals get lost here and never make their way out.

Occupations

Instead of organizing the inhabitants into classes, I've use occupations for the fey inhabitants. This gives you the chance to pick the classes (if you want) for the different peoples of the region.  Also, use whatever classes as you see fit that fit into the occupation listing, not just those in the PHB.

Standard Occupations: Arcanist (A), Craftsman (C), Entertainer (E), Enforcers (F), Merchant (M), Woodsman (W), Guide (G), Pilgrim (P), Spy (S),  A, C, E, F, G, M, P, S, or W

Arcanist - student of arcane lore, Wizard or Sorcerer types. Come to study and practice their crafts.
Crafter - practitioners of physical crafting, all races practice but few are Masters. Any class. Most want to trade, goods for coin.
Enforcer - Hands-on followers, pledge physical action, Fighter, barbarian types
Entertainer - Bards or rogues both official or unofficial practice
Guide - Experts, often of illegal arts and practices,  Bard, Cleric Ranger, Rogue, or Wizard
Merchant - Student of mercantile arts, Anyone
Pilgrim - Follower of godly powers, Often cleric, druids or monks. Looking for followers and gifts.
Spy - Practitioners of illegal arts and practices, Bard, Ranger, Rogue,  Monk
Woodsman - familiar with older, wilder arts, barbarian, druid or ranger


Level and HD adjustment Rules
X% +1: First number zero adjustment, each percentage will be +X higher HD
Usually, use their CR number as the percentage calculator (2 HD = 20%; CR 5 = 50%, etc)

CR 2 (20% ±1: Roll 01-20 no adjustment, 21-40% +1 HD; 41-60% +2, etc)
CR 5 (30% ±2: Roll 01-30 no adjustment, 31-60% +1 HD; 61-90% +2, etc)

If the listed encounters do not have a HD adjustment number, use base HD.

Encounters

My default is every two hours when traveling in standard populated areas, you can a check. If the party is taking action that may increase the likelihood of an encounter, roll more often. Likewise, if the party is being slower and more careful, decrease the rates - I usually go as low as once every 6 hours during the day. At night, I do two standard checks for most locations, three checks if it is a high population. When there's a chance you might have an encounter, roll the WMT if you have nothing specifically planned or insert as you want.

Chance of running into something: 5 / 20 or a 25% chance. Each time you don't encounter something, add +1 to the next roll. (6/20 on the second roll, 7/20 on the third roll, etc.) When you roll an event, subtract three from the current counter, until the number reaches or falls below 5, then start with that base roll once more. Note there are times, if the encounter isn`t substantial / unusual, I will gloss over it, as apart of the narrative time-skip.

As a side note, I use this current variance allowance in the next situation or environment. For example, if the Heroes are travelling to the Cur of Xennik through the Jorre Forest, and had reached a 9 / 20 chance, I would then add the +4 on their next encounter roll when required at the Cur.

Note that many of these creatures and not just the faeries are good aligned. If the party doesn`t represent a threat, you can speed through the encounter, unless the group wants to interact in order to ask specific questions.

Many of my NPC ranger types will have an apparently simple white hound as a pet. They are often in the background, ready to do simple tasks for its master or their allies. Often a Snoopy will leave their master for short periods of time to help allies.

An advanced beagle hound - usually white haired dog with small black spots. They appears to be a hound that can stand upright, walk and run erect and manipulate items or devices with considerable skill with their front paws. They have strong connections with both mortals and fey, seemingly always wanting to help - ready in the background for their friends, watching and protecting when they can. Very well regarded by the Faerie in the Dreamlands, they often hang around portals waiting for their many mates. 

A Snoopy is poor in combat as they rarely use weapons and cannot utilize standard armors. But while not strong in direct confrontations they excel as rogues, having an excellent maneuverability, back stab and knowledge skills. A Snoopy does everything they can to help their allies, but is also willing to abandon them if unable to assist them. Most are careful, thoughtful allies trying to be prepared.

Non Target: A Snoopy cannot be specifically targeted by spells, any attempt to target him fails. They can be caught in an area of effect spell where the Snoopy is one of a number of non specified targets. But they cannot be individualized as the target such as with an aiming spell like magic missile.

Imagineering: A Snoopy can add +20 to any skill rolls every day. He can add these bonuses as an non-named adjustment bonus to single or multiple checks, as long as the cumulative adjustment total does not add to more than 20 in any given day.

Advancement A Snoopy gains 6 skill points and +2 DR every new HD, +1 AC every 2 HD. 
Bite damage is increased by dice every 3 HD to the next dice.

Special Attack Backstab : Their backstab attack is always a bite.

Smurfling - Small Sized, Blue Coloured Fey

I wanted to create something like these for my fae themed game a while ago, but didn't come up with a good way to run them. Inspired by the tv cartoon that I used to watch in my youth.

Smurfling
Tiny Sized Fey                                   CR 1

AC 16 (+2 Dex, +2 Natural, Size +6), Touch 13, Flat 13
HD 1D6+1 (4 hp)

Melee +3 weapon (Hammer or Slingshot 1d3)
Special Attacks Joined Attack
Special Defenses. Reduce Injury 3 / -, Playful Demeanor
Skills Craft (Any One)+ 3, Climb or Swim +4, Perception +3; Perform (Dance) +10*, Stealth +6
Feats Weapon Finesse or Skill Focus (Any Craft)

Environment Garden or Candyland
Organization Gathering (50-400)
Treasure Half (gems, coins or potions)
Alignment  Any Good ("Bad" Smurflings are Neutral aligned)
Advancement By class (Expert, Rogue, Druid or Ranger most common)

For every additional HD achieved: +2 in Reduce Injury and +1/+1 in ability score adjustments. They also increase +1 in natural AC for every 2 HD gained.

Reduce Injury: Similar to Damage Reduction except it minimizes only after basic injury is inflicted, reducing damage on a one-to-one basis until its limit. For example a 1 HD Smurf would be affected: 
One damage Inflicted = One HP Dmg Taken
Two damage Inflicted = One HP Dmg Taken
Three damage Inflicted = Two HP Dmg Taken

Joined Attack: The few times Smurflings cannot use their charm or escape an encounter through wit, they are able to attack en masse. For every four that attack the same foe, increase both the base calculation and damage dice. (1d3 -- 1d4 -- 1d6 -- 1d8 - 1d10). 

Playful Demeanour Smurflings gain +8 on social skills due to their playfulness. Fey and good aligned outsiders would never consider hurting a Smurfling.

Smurflings are one and a half foot tall fey that have blue skin. They reside in mushroom homes within their forest villages, living in balance with the environment around them. Friendly and helpful, they are keen on making new allies but prefer to avoid strangers as they have been hurt in the past. 

These magical creatures are at one with the animals, plants and fey beings around them. Most of their allies believe they arise spontaneously during blue moon months, a new Smurfling is born inside a blossoming flower. Smurflings are a male species, while there are crazy rumours of females being hatched, this has never been proven. 

Most of their kind focuses on one type of craft to specialize in, not for profit but for the benefits it brings to their village. Smurflings sometimes gain Rogue or Ranger classes to defend their kin and friends from the dangers of the forest. Druid is the most common spell-caster, though Bards just as respected. 

As a magically enriched fey race, Smurflings are living spell components, they do not need components for spells of less than 5th level. In addition, they can create spells that typically fit into another casters area of specialty, but the Smurfling casters can still cast. If working in conjunction with others, they can enhance spells or reduce saving throws beyond comprehension by dance or musical accompaniment. For this reason many evil spell casters seek them out, waiting to use them to buff their castings. While their allies are always concerned, these fey always finds a way to overcome threats.

I am leaning towards using  Reduce Injury to replace simple Damage reduction.

Strangling Jack

Not specifically a creature for Candyland, but one there in the many farms, a deadly strangling vine that strikes at night.

SPECIAL ABILITIES

Strangling Vines (Ex) Strangling Jack will try to hold and choke opponents. They get +8 to maintain the hold on the second and subsequent rounds. They can attack up to five victims, but they can initiate or respond to only one combatant each round. Victims can try to escape by making a DC 16 Reflex save.  While the target is entangled, its vines also grasp at the target's mouth, preventing the target from speaking or casting spells with verbal components while entangled. When a creature is entangled by this ability, the strangling jack can initiate another vine attack on another creature.

A Strangling Jack is a mysterious and deadly figure in the farmer`s patch, as nobody knows where they originate from. Druids believe they emerge from the patch to kill any "invaders" in the plant`s domain. They have strong choking capability and kill most humanoid figures that appear in their patch at night. Most will leave their farmer and their family alone, as it knows that it needs both daytime feedings as well as their nighttime snacks to thrive.

It appears as a mass of vines, usually attached to a pillar or other outdoor feature. It is only when they make a move to strangle a victim does it roughly take a humanoid-like form. Smaller vines or lesser HD (3 HD) will sometimes take on a vague animal like figure (squirrel or dog) and larger vine masses sometimes form rough imitations of elementals (12 HD).

While evil and insular, Strangling Jacks can be requested to help their farmer or fey neighbours against a shared foe. They may wish to feed, but don't want to be left alone. They can be placated with animal sacrifices as opposed to them hunting intelligent beings. Evil druids like to seek out Strangling Jacks and plant them in their lairs.

Nighttime Lurker (Bed Horror)

One of my few evil Candyland monsters. They haunt both the mundane world and fairy land, slipping in and out of the Dream and Mortal realms to get their screams, and then slip out. Never had a chance to insert them in my Fey themed game, still gonna run a bunch more fey / dream games so they will be getting to make an appearance now and then.

ECOLOGY

Organization  Pair or gang (3–6)
Treasure   Double

Horrific Essence: Lurkers almost by definition are horrific, not to terrify opponent`s but to make opponents hesitate to investigate them. Their aura is to intimidate in a passive way, granting a forget spell, to details the viewer just saw. This gives NPCs a -6 on skill or saving checks on information skill checks against them.

The Lurker is a small, shadowy fey that excels in hiding away and waiting for opportunities to frighten people. It gets considerable glee hearing children or anyone else screaming and it does everything it can to incite others to flee.

A master of intimidation and stealth, it bides its time until it can maximize the affects. They are just smart enough to appreciate partners and do everything they can to be with stronger creatures for support but not to be beholden to them. The hate repaying favors and will hide away to avoid being caught and forced to abide by their promises.

One of the reasons there seems to be so many lurkers is that their haunting is considered a non-lethal kind, so most times they are not considered to be a big enough threat to pursue. But their horrific essence also limits the capacity for others to hunt them down.  Though not undead, will often act as such, so they pretend to be turned, in order to escape conflict.

As far as most visitors can tell, Mother Goose is an elderly human female, though physically frail she is wise and very charismatic, making friends and allies with both the inhabitants and the many sleeping visitors. While best known for helping sleeping children, she also helps fae and other inhabitants in the Candyland. What few visitors realize is that she is called by another name by the fey - Faerie Queen.

One of the highest level fae in Candyland. She is a well known but mysterious figure as she has had a presence both here and in mortal lands for hundreds of years. Her main foes are those that would steal or otherwise take advantage of the sleeping visitors. She has waged war on both the devils and demons (and many others) but she usually leaves them alone as long as they do not cause problems. Her servants are always watching outsiders.

What is little understood is that there are times Mother Goose is unable to cast her highest level spells or effects, essentially being a mid-level caster while other times she can cast the most powerful spells in all of Candyland. Most believe that she is outside of time, so there are times she appears as various version of herself. She knows the fey and their stories as they are apart of her but does not always remember every mortal creature she interacts with.  Roll below to determine where Mother Goose is in her circle.

Roll below once /night.

91-95   As 18 HD  Fey
96+      As 20 HD Fey

Add +1/attacks & saving throws for every HD added.

 SPECIAL ABILITIES

Constant Friendship to Fey, Animals and Elementals - Both in the feylands and in mortal realms see Mother Goose as a trusted friend.

Charm Speech (Will DC 20) Constant affect, Those she is able to speak with are treated as if they are charmed. Only if they actively resist, do they get a saving throw to avoid. She uses this to convince both allies and foes to stop taking violent action agaisnt fey and others. She will not use this to take advantage of others.

Banish (Will DC 24 - 3 / day) she can banish creatures, having them unable to come back into the Feylands for 72 hours.

Summon Fey - 4 / day - Can summon 20 HD of fae creatures 4 times a day, the only two stipulations are she must have met them before and they are on the same plane as her.

Sleep (Will DC 20 - 2/day) Can affect creatures up to 15 HD, her sleep effect can put anything asleep that naturally sleeps as their base HD level shown below. If they normally do not sleep (Golems, Undead) treat them as double HD, so she can affect them but to a much lesser extent.

1-3 HD; 24 hours
4-5 HD; 12 hours
6-7 HD; 6 hours
8-9 HD; 3 hours
10  HD; 2 hours
11  HD; 1 hour
12  HD; 20 minutes

10 HD  - Forget Me Now: Enemies who are hit by this touch causes them to forget their negative impulses. Creatures who are charmed or otherwise magically affected are brought back to their base emotion. Foes need to save on a Will DC 21. Can affect creatures only once every day. Most planar creatures automatically return to their home plane due to confusion.

12 HD - Dream Realm: Enemies hit by this ray must make a will save vs DC 23 or fall into their own personal realm for a range of time similar to sleep, except they need to re-save every day as the dream realm is highly personal and quite enjoyable. They must realize they are imprisoned, then actively save to escape it (adding +1 on their saves for each successive night.)

14 HD - Deepest Darkest: The Faerie Queen immediately learns a creature's deepest darkest secret. Those trying to resist must make a Will Save vs DC 19.

16 HD - Awakened: One of the few non-aggressive affects the Faerie Queen has. This will awaken a creature to full sentience (Int and Cha to 10.) This is most often done to get immediate helpers to assist with a threatening foe.

18 HD - Am I really here: Somewhat similar to her Forget Me Now affect, but with this, they don't even realize they exist, believing themselves to be images in the dream realm. Most creatures will just wander around as if in a dreamy-sleep state, taking neither negative or positive actions. They need to save once a week as a Will Save vs  DC 25 to break free.

20 HD - No More Dreams (DC 25) If she is able to touch an opponent, she forcibly rips them out of the dream state and prevents them from getting back to the dreaming realm. The consequences are that they are unable to obtain new spells. Most creatures in fact slowly go insane after not sleeping for the number of days equal to their charisma score.

Thorne-Kin (Plant HD character race)

Thornes are a naturally growing sentient plant race found in my game world, their natural colours mimic the natural foliage of the area they reside in.  They see themselves as kin to other plants, and do their best to help protect them. Have small thorns throughout their skin which is a key defense. They also get excellent grapple bonuses at higher levels.

After reviewing my initial racial creature had to adjust them to a higher HD - the base plant defenses made them very powerful for a playable-type race at lower levels.

Thorne-Kin

Medium Size
Speed 30
Special Abilities: Darkvision, Speak with plant 1/HD every day
Feats Unarmed Strike or Weapon Focus (Club, Mace or Short Sword)
Racial Skill: +2 Climb, +2 Stealth, +6 Knowledge (nature)
Special:  no need for food; need normal human half water requirements and sunlight
Weakness: 2 hour per day must bask in sun;
Weakness: Speed is reduced by 10 ft  during the night or when underground in excess of 12 hours
Immunity to all mind-affecting effects (charms, compulsions, morale effects, patterns, and phantasms).
Immunity to paralysis, poison, polymorph, sleep effects, and stunning.
Languages: Common and Sylvan
Classes: Ranger and Druid are preferred classes
Alignment: NG or True N

Skills: Climb, Craft, Diplomacy, Handle Animal, Heal, Knowledge (nature, geography), Perception,                Sense Motive, Stealth, Survival,
Level Increase:  +4 Skill points, feats every other level, +1 AC every other level, +2 to any ability score every third level (3rd/6th/9th)

The Thorne are a plant humanoid race found in every forest on the realm but most common in areas that have a strong elven presence. They are medium sized green-skinned humanoid plant, but fully aware and capable of movement.

Most live quiet simple lives, tending not to get involved in political or commercial affairs. They reside in forests, and try to help their neighbours, especially to help keep balance in the area. Tend towards a passive lifestyle, uninterested in wealth or fame. Most Thorne think of all plants as kin, some are active and some more passive, though none are more important than anyone else. They come to their protection from over-eager lumberjacks. See the animal or avian inhabitants of their region as neighbours.

They do not tend to wear clothing in their rural habitat but may do so in urban areas to better fit in. Few use metal armor and shields, but they may use their feats to gain proficiency. They consume magical potions and use items created from plants, but will always make sure the plant was in its 'final cycle time' meaning if the plant was sentient (by their standards) it was willing to give of itself
as it didnèt have much time left. Some Thornes shy away from any object made from their related-kin but this is a minority. They fully understand the natural cycle and understand their least kin are consumed on a regular basis but since their cycle is short, this is normal and acceptable.

Thornes rarely come together in groups of more than ten except in times of danger. They realize they need to have their eyes and ears everywhere in order to better protect their kin. Have good relationships with elves, halflings, rangers but above all druids. Most quietly worship the gods, usually either the Lady of the Forest (Holon, N) or the Shining Light (Quanna, LG) most often both.

Thorne HD Advancement

4 HD: Skin of the forest, +1/ HD to stealth checks; Woodland Stride,
5 HD: Thorne Skin (+1 dmg for touch attack, +2 Grapple checks); Improved Grapple
6 HD: Animal friendship and Speak with Animals (1+1/charisma bonus/day)
7 HD  Plantspeech - non-verbal communication with any plant in a 500 ft radius (1 /day)
8 HD Thorne Skin (2-4 dmg for touch attack, +6 Grapple checks); Woodland Protector
9 HD Woodland Defenses
10 HD Throw Thornes (2-7 dmg / 50 foot area, 3+constitution bonus / day)
11 HD Hardened Thorne Skin (5-8 for touch attack; +12 to grapple)
12 HD Commune with Forest (500 mile radius; 1 /week );  +15 Skill points, Gain +3 to any 2 ability scores

Most Thorne that advance do so using this HD advancement table. If they take standard character classes before 12 HD, they cannot take new natural HD levels.

Skin of the forest: Their coloration matches the natural foliage of a forest, giving them a +1 bonus / HD to their stealth checks

Thorne Skin: Similar to many natural flowers, their entire body grows small defensive thorns. They cause damage by coming into contact with predators. This also gives bonuses to grapple checks.

Woodland Protector: Can infuse a small spark of their sentience to a plant defender. Must take 2 months to grow and teach the golem. Appear as a vaguely humanoid walking plant. Most are stationary, most do not travel with their Thorne, but stay in a primary lair. This is the base woodland protector, some get help from other Thornes or allies to grow larger and stronger versions.

AC           15   (+3 Natural, +2 Dex)    
Move       30    
HD           5 HD 
Attack       +6 / 2-8 dmg (Fist)
Str 15    Con 15     Dex 15     Int 5   Wis 10    Cha 5
Special Defenses: Regenerate 1 hp / hour

Woodland Defenses: Gain +3 on AC and saving throws when in natural foliage, as the plants help protect their kin. Gain this benefit (2+ charisma bonus/day)  

Throw Thornes: Have a 50 feet range, doing 2-7 damage

Candyland Witch

This is the default spell-caster in Candyland, usually seen as a brightly dressed young lady on a broom. They are most known for their capacity to create potions which they use to help allies. Overwhelmingly good in alignment with many fae and magical creature allies. This was one of the most trickiest Candyland encounter creatures for me to write up though easy for me to picture, I wanted to distinguish them from the witch class in the standard rules.

SPECIAL ABILITIES

Witches Broom (Su) A candy witch can create a flying broom with their spell-craft knowledge. The broom has a flight speed of 50 and maneuverability of Average. A green witch can cast her spells on the broom without making balance checks. If the broom is attacked, it has an +4 AC versus the witches own AC. If destroyed, the witch will automatically featherfall. It will take a witch 7 days to create a new broom after taking a day to gather the required components. For some unknown reason, Witches are unable to use invisibility while on their flying brooms.

Advanced Potion Craft (Su) A green witch can create any potion used to mimic a 1st-4th level spell from either the cleric or wizard's spell listing. They can only have up to 1 + their wisdom bonus in potions at any time. Their potions lasts four days per point of intelligence bonus.

Candy Witches are female spell-casters native to Candyland. Almost all are youthful in appearance, dressing in bright colours, with pretty decorations on their clothes, with blond or pink hair very common. Most are quite polite and pleasant, a little self obsessed but otherwise good citizens.  The majority are happy and helpful but a small number of them are vile spellcasters, intent on wrecking vengeance on those they believe have caused them grief.

Most Candy Witches make their living selling potions or minor magical trinkets. They get involved in the adventurers by their friends and allies who sometimes get in trouble and need help to get out of Candyland.

The evil Candy witches are those that have been spurned or tormented and they turn to vile magics to enact their revenge but in doing will horrifically wrinkle their skin and turn it green. Most often Candy Witches will not spurn their evil kin, and try to turn them back to good. Witches rarely fight each other, but each side will try to undermine the worst of their opposite kin. Fortunately, the good aligned witches vastly outnumber the evil ones and can sometimes convince the evil ones to help out in a plan for the common good.

Candy Covens
When three witchs of any type gather, they can form a coven to gain increased magical ability to serve their good cause. Most witches try to meet with their covens at least once a month to share tips and socialize.

Whenever all three hags of a particular coven are within 10 feet of one another, all three of them can work together to use any of the following spell-like abilities once a day: Bless, remove curse (DC 17), clairaudience/clairvoyance, charm monster (DC 17), commune, control weather, dream, forcecage, mind blank, mirage arcana (DC 18), reincarnate, speak with dead, veil (DC 19), vision.

Card Soldiers (Candyland)

Apart of the Candyland game I am putting together. There are dozens of different colours or design on their back. Each is part of a distinct card family. They can be aligned or enemies of each other, for the outsider, there is no way to tell who works with which other family.

Treasure none
Advancement: Unless they get promoted, No Advancement


SPECIAL ABILITIES

Paired Attack: Card soldiers are trained to attack from all sides of an opponent. As long as there is a two to one ratio and enough room for them to maneuver. they gain +2 to their attacks on foes.

Appear as five foot tall by two and a half feet wide playing card with a distinct coloured pattern on their backside. When they move or intereact with objects (including combat) they no longer appear to be 2-dimensional beings, instead they are fully recognized 3D creatures.

Playing Cards were once considered a magical construct controlled by a master, objects that had a defined purpose. At some point in the near past, a group of them found a way to escape from their master's evil purposes to become free. Now they work as a self-contained group, independent and free to make allies among other free-willed beings. Primary purpose is always to to find 54 unscathed corpses from four distinct races to complete their deck. But they also look for well-defendable sites to make their lairs.

There are four ranks, Low (2-5), Junior (6-8), Mid (9-10) and Senior (J-Q-K-A-Joker). All senior levels have distinct ability by suit.

Human Appearance (Ex) Designed to fit the role of a human child, a pinocchio appears identical to one when 30 feet or more away. They gain +8 bonus on Disguise checks to appear human (but not to impersonate a specific human).

Vulnerable to critical hits - Despite being constructs, they are vulnerable to critical hits, although they cannot bleed


These were originally made by an famous wood-carver for parents who lost their children due to a curse. Most were loved and cared for for many years, but they were eventually put-aside as a new generation of human children were being born and they were no loner needed. A fey bard cast a spell to bring these marionettes to Candyland, and in doing so the magic of the realm brought them to life. Since this point, many have been adopted both to help in doing chores and care for children or other simple tasks. They are unaging but prone to being broken due to injury - this is how many become so brittle they are unable to continue in their tasks.

Most Pinocchios are happy to live their lives in a semi-human, existence. A few try to become more, to become fully human or to lose their humanity and to fully embrace their construct nature. Some skip out at night to go on fun adventures, and a few become embroiled in wild adventurers, on either side of the conflict - they generally don't care as long as they are having fun.

Individual Pinocchios are of any alignment, most tend towards good, but with the wrong influences, some will head in an evil direction, looking for wealth or to inflict cruelty for their own self above all else.

*Constructs on Nyssa gain 10 on their constitution scores. they do not gain benefits or hindrances from this ability score. As a general rule, this is a fixed number that does not change and they cannot lose hit points or be drained.

Gourd-Men (Candyland Scarecrow)

Continuing on in the listing of low-level monster creatures that inhabit Candyland. This is the Gourd-Man, a plant-humanoid who was made to watch over growing crops to scare pests and avians away.

Freeze (Ex) The creature can hold itself so still it appears to be an inanimate object of the appropriate shape (a statue, etc ). The creature can take 20 on its Stealth check to hide in plain sight as this kind of inanimate object.

Gourd-Men are a farmer's tool meant to scare avians away from their stock, in candyland (and in some other magically innate domains) they become infused by the magic of the land to come to life. Appear as a rudimentary mundane scarecrows, with an intricately carved pumpkin or other gourd for their head. They are usually armed with a club or scythe.

While physically awkward and of adequate intelligence, they are invaluable to farmers and travelers who come to rely on them for their advice. They are not book-smart, but they have considerable experience of working on the farm and interacting with animals and fey that inhabit the lands. Unlike many other candyland residents, they are ill-disposed to adventure but they sometimes fall into it to help out someone they know. They have considerable attachment to the farmer that created them, and once they gain sentience, will help them and their families doing chores around the farmstead. Gourd-Men speak very little, even to the ones they care about, for them, they show their emotions by doing kind-hearted actions instead.

It is not possible for Gourd-Men to gain experience as they very rarely adventure. However, some farmers will pay for improvements to increase their HD with a local spell-caster. Higher level ones often gain animal empathy or fear abilities to better ward their homes.

Tin Man

Continuing with the creatures that are in my newly created Candyland, for an upcoming con adventure. Here is the consummate warden, the ever shiny and vigilant Tin Man. 

Tin Man (Lesser Golem) CR 3
LN (G)  Medium Sized construct
Init +1; Senses darkvision 60 ft., low-light vision; Perception +3

DEFENSE
AC 15, touch 11, flat-footed 14 (+1 Dex, +4 natural)
HP  36 (3d10+20)
Fort +1, Ref +2, Will +1
DR 1/-;  Immune construct traits, magic

OFFENSE
Speed 30 ft.
Melee +6 Sharpened Wood Axe (1d6+2/18-20)
Space 5 ft.; Reach 5 ft.

STATISTICS
Str 14, Dex 13, Con 10*, Int 10, Wis 11, Cha 10
Base Atk +5; CMB +7; CMD 16
Feats Weapon Focus (Axe), Skill Focus (Perception)
Skills +4 Survival, +4 Perception, +5 Knowledge (Candyland or Forest),

Environment Candyland
Organization solitary or gang (2–4)
Treasure none

Special Attacks: Sharp Axe - Increase critical range by 2 after three days of sharpening
Special Weakness: Heavy rain or water spells will inflict rusting, causing them to lose full motion. If they are at half hit points due to water damage, they move at 50% speed, if they are at 5% of hit points due to water damage, they lose all physical motion until they are oiled up again.

Tin Men were created long ago by The Great Wizard to help protect Candyland for the times when he was away from his post They were originally stationed at cross-roads, bridges and castles and all other places of high traffic to be gardeners and wardens, to alert the Candy Cane soldiers when problems appeared and assist when force had to be used. Though originally non-sentient like most other Golem types, they eventually became self-aware as the magical energies of the demi-plane soaked into them. Most are not overly smart or wise or highly charismatic, but they certainly do their jobs quite well and are dedicated to the people, places and magic of Candyland.

Most Tin Men will return to their station posts after getting the authorities, but a rare few will engage in quests if they believe it is in the interest of Candyland or the inhabitants. They are uninterested in personal glory or wealth, they are happiest doing their task - alone or with others is meaningless for them as they seem to be uninterested in building personal relationships. Strangely, many citizens that reside near particular Tin Men grow very fond of them, and the citizens realize the Tin Men do not understand or can even appreciate as they often do not pick up on their positive emotional feelings for them.

Higher Level Advancement (HD)

4 HD +3 skill points, Feat, DR 3/Magic, Increase any 2 ability scores by +2
5 HD +3 skill points , Gain Natural AC +2
6 HD  +3 skill points, Track, Increase Wood Axe's Critical range (+1)
7 HD  +3 skill points, Feat, DR 5/Magic, Increase any 2 ability scores by +2
8 HD  +3 skill points, Gain Natural AC +2
9 HD  +9 skill points, Feat, DR 9/Magic, Increase Wood Axe's Critical range (+2), Increase any 3 ability scores by +2

Few Tin Men ever attain 9 HD as they need to adventure and this would mean venturing away from their post which they are highly unlikely to do. In theory, as free-willed constructs they could gain levels in Fighter, Ranger, Paladin or Rogue. It has not been recorded if a Tin Men has ever tried to achieve class levels before 10 HD / level.

Gain Natural AC - These are physical improvements and better quality metal used in their bodies.

DR - The damage reduction is for non-magic weapons only.

Weapon Critical Range - They can increase any axe or bladed weapon`s critical range. It takes one week per range increase. The Tin Man must continually sharpen it, otherwise it slowly loses its sharpness after one day being uncared for. It will lose one +1 for each successive day it is not sharpened.

Construct Constitution - In my games constructs have 10 on their constitution. They do not gain or lose hit points, it always remains at this point and it cannot be drained.

Winged Monkeys

Another one of the Candyland Monsters that will make an appearance at a local con I am doing very soon. This is a winged pest, that once served evil masters but today is mostly a nuisance.  They make a great companion for evil druids or witches.

Winged Monkeys
Small Sized Magical Beast

Init +1      
Senses low-light vision; Perception +3

AC 15, touch 13, flat-footed 13 (+2 natural, +2 Dex, +1 Size)
HP 16 (3d8+3)

Speed 30 ft. Fly 50 (Average)

Special Attacks Swoop

Str 12, Dex 15, Con 14, Int 5, Wis 9, Cha 8
Base Atk +5; CMB +3; CMD 15

Feats Weapon Focus (claw),Multi-Attack
Skills Fly+10 , Perception+3 Survival +4, Stealth+3; Bonus +8 on Fly

Alignment: Neutral (Evil)
Environment Candyland
Organization Small Flock (3-12) o Large Flock (30 - 120)
Treasure Quarter 
Advancement 4-6 HD (Medium); 7-10 HD (Large)

Swoop: Gain a +3 bonus on a single claw attack  if they are able swoop down ten feet down during combat. 

It is believed these creatures were an experiment in cross-breeding by one of Candyland's former Witch Mistresses. They have since escaped and bred wild. 

At one time, their flocks numbered in the hundreds, and they could turn the bright pink sky black as they descended to attack creatures or travelers. But when their masters lost access to the huge revell (corn) fields, they could not be controlled and the flocks broke apart to look for food on their own. Now they mostly survive by raiding or harassing farmlands or sniping travelers.. They can be quite cunning, using their stealth to sneak in and take small objects but they usually just us their numbers to take what they want by strength.

This is the typical specimen, there are more advanced versions that sometimes advance HD in fighter, rogue or druid levels. Some evil druids select these creatures as minions but only if they have been to Candyland previously.

Eggston (Egg Man)

I was preparing a fairy tale adventure and needed some storybook monsters. Didn't really find any monsters that fit the Egg-type mold and was inspired to create my Eggston. A bit serious but a kind-hearted fey, they hold important positions in Candyland, a demi-plane of sweet delight.

Eggston    (Egg Man)
Medium Sized Fey

Hit Dice: 11 hp (2d6+4 con)
Initiative: +2 (dexterity)
Speed: 30 ft

AC: 13 (+2, dexterity, +1 natural)
Base Atk +1 CMB +3 CMD 15 (Trip 18)
Melee Attacks: +0 Cudgel (1d6)
Range Attacks: +3 Small Crossbow (1d4)
Special Attacks: Rolling Attack +6 (Trip)
Special Qualities: Rolling, DR 1 / Blades and Missiles

Saves: Fort +2, Ref +5, Will +2
Abilities: Str 8, Dex 14, Con 15, Int 12, Wis 8, Cha 14
Skills: +5 Acrobatics , +5 Climb , +4 Diplomacy, +4 Knowledge (local & Fey) +5 Perception
Feats: Weapon Focus (Roll)

Climate/Terrain: Candyland or any Neutral Planar World
Organization: Solitary, Pair or by Pack (3-10)
Challenge Rating: 2
Treasure: None
Alignment: Usually neutral (tends towards LN)
Advancement Range: 3-7 HD (Medium)

Disadvantage: Suffer a -4 on saving throws versus crushing & blunt falling damage
Rolling Attack: Dropping to their side as an instant action, they gain a +6 to their rolling attacks in an attempt to trip up their foes. They roll back to their feet in the same round of an attack. They must be able to roll between ten to twenty feet. If the Eggston succeeds on their CMD check, the opponent is knocked down. If they fail by ten or more vs the opponent's CMD, they end their turn on the prone.

A famous humanoid race found throughout Candyland. Appear as a five foot tall egg with short legs and arms. Most wear clothing to fit in with humanoids they interact with but in their own shell-towns they normally only wear their bare white or brown egg shell.

There are many races and creatures found in Candyland, some as travelers or adventurers, but the Egg-shaped Eggston is one of the few true native inhabitants. They are looked to for advice and often given minor positions of authority as they have an intelligence that is thoroughly respected though sometimes misplaced. They are keen to help visitors, and in some instances their advice will actually help. Many times their apparent sophistication is for naught, as they rarely admit that they do not know, and can give false information and not even realize it. Because of their dutiful nature, they rarely turn away from tasks that help defend their posts. The rare Eggston above 7 HD gain levels in bard, rogue, or fighter.

Higher Level HD

3 HD Acrobatics & Climb (Add 3 X HD to Jump and Climb Skill Scores), See Invisible, +1 Natural AC, +6 Skills Points
4 HD Gain +2 to any two ability scores, Immunity to Charm Spells, +1 Natural AC, Feat, +6 Skills Points
5 HD Immunity to Natural Poison, DR 3/Blades and Missiles, Gain +4 on Fae & Bard reaction checks, +6 Skill Points
6 HD Gain +2 to any two ability scores, +1 Natural AC, Feat, +6 Skill Points 
7 HD Gain +2 to any two ability scores, SR 15, DR 5/Blades and Missiles , Feat, +6 Skill Points

See Invisible (Su): Due to their keen senses, they have a 85% chance, before rolling a perception check to determine if there are invisible creatures in their line of sight. This increases to 95% if the creature is within twenty feet of them.

Bonus to Jump and Climb skills: Eggston are very adept at quickly moving around, getting a bonus equal to three times current HD to their base skill before rolling d20. They get these adjustments 2 + Cha bonus

Immunity to Natural Poison: Immunity to natural poisons found in the woods - usually from animals or reptiles and those directly from plants. This gives a +4 to  manufactured poison saving throws.

Cupid - small angelic figures

These small angelic figures inhabit temples and places that serve alcohol. Their main task is to find people willing to take on holy tasks, but they have a weakness for supporting lonely hearts into finding mates. While not confirmed, many believe that children can see them, even if they invisible.

SPECIAL ABILITIES

Bonus to Emotion Based Spells: Gain +1 per their HD to any spells that affect emotions

Invisibility (Sp) Can turn invisible five times a day. Each time they shoot an arrow, they become visible until they re-use this ability.

Possess Other (Sp) A cupid's official task is to seek mortals to do missions for their heavenly patrons. They determine which of the faithful can best accomplish a task and then try to steer them back to their patron's temple. The most used method is to possess them for short periods of time (10-20 minutes.)

Enchanted Arrows (Sp)  They are armed with magical short bows that shoot arrows that can either damage the flesh or the heart.  A cupid can utilize 2+Cha Bonus magic arrows every day, created when the arrow is knocked.  Those struck by a cupid’s arrow are struck as if by a spell-like ability at a caster level equal to the cupid’s Hit Dice. All saves are Charisma based.

Some of the varieties of cupid’s magic arrows are:

Dream - Fall into a deep slumber for 10-60 minutes, Will DC 14

Love - Fall for the nearest person they are looking at, having a -5 to suggestions (or polite requests) made by the same person for the next 24 hours, Will DC 17

Misery - Lose all interest in any positive interaction, wishing to imbibe alcohol or similar substances for the next 20-200 minutes, Will DC 15


Cupids are small angelic spirits best known for helping lovers find their mates but they have many magical skills.  They are found in many temples or small pubs looking to help the faithful in tasks. When flirting about a city, they will often use their magic to help out various causes.  They are rumored to have many other arrows with emotion affecting magics. While their primary job is not to make mortals fall romantically for each other, they have a weakness for lonely people and try to make them happy.

They have a very strong affection for children and will usually take time to play with or inspire them to engage in artistic endeavors. It is often said that children can see through a Cupid's invisibility.

Oddly, they have a changing alignment, it teeters between neutral and good, dedicated and free. Despite this they have free reign in many good temples as they are rarely seen as a misaligned force.

Dral (Shadow Elves)


As much as I adored the Dark Elf stories, that's not really the type of elf I like to use. These forest elves are intelligent, hard-working and very social. They are unlikely to back down from an honorable duel. Their numbers are low but they have many allies willing to come to their aid - though they have never actually needed it.

Treasure: Standard

A dark hued elf with black hair, wearing dark green leafy armor and armed with a scimitar approaches.

Dral or sometimes Tree-Shadow Elves are dark-skinned elves with a deep interest in music, lore and all things fey. They collect books, scrolls and scrying devices, but pay most handsomely for diaries or other pieces of historical antiquity. Honorable to a fault, and have kept a 1,000-year pact with the Oromian monarchy. They resent intrusion into their forest-homes and repay it with deadly action. They sometimes invite bards, clerics or wizards into their homes to share or trade information. These elves are wonderful musicians – but they rarely perform for others.

Some humans who are unaware of Dral society and their honour-bound oaths sometimes get them mixed up with strange Fey stories of underground, evil savages living in huge cities. Drow society has never existed on Nyssa, although individual Dral may be evil.

Scimitar and bow are their primary weapons but they have the ability to manipulate sound. Due to their hiding skills, nobody can truly threaten a Dral in a forest if they want to remain hidden.

As Characters
+2 Dexterity, +1 Charisma, -1 Strength
+1 Scimitar or bow
Other abilities per standard elf

Preferred Classes: Bard, Druid, Ranger, Rogue, Sorcerer, Wizard (Enchanter)

Dral usually have twelve levels in any one preferred class. If they deviate or take dual class, they are limited to 10th level.

1st level: Envelope in Shadow (+5 to Hide in Forest Shadows)
3rd level: Audible Glamour (1+cha bonus/day)
5th level: Audible Repetition  (1+cha bonus/day)

Audible Glamour: Create Sound; DC 12 to recognize fake sound
Audible Repetition: Repeat one word to create an Enthrall effect; DC 15 to avoid
Audible Damper: Reduce sound range by half; +10 on an opponent’s perception check DCs
Freedom of Movement: As per the spell of the same name in their natural terrain
