The Big Book of Fey: Expanded Faerie-Themed Content for 5th Edition


Seldom seen but often felt, whether it be the caress of ethereal fingers or the raising of gooseflesh on one's arms, many believe that the Faeries, often called the Fey or the Good Folk, are simplisic in nature and harmless. There are thoughts that they are gossamer-winged and flighty, taking delight in the laughter of babies and the songs of a passing minstrel.

While all may be true, they are merely a facet of what these creatures truly are.

Faerie folk, like mortal beings, have a wide array of their colors which they decide to don for onlookers. Though many are frilly, fickle things, there are a greater number of them which are darker in hue and akin to the shadows which dwell in every being's hearts. Tricksters who delight in leading those astray; blood-drinkers who are oft mistaken for vampires. These are only a small description of the faeries of the realms, both near and far.

'The Big Book of Fey' is over fifteen pages of new fey-themed content for Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition. Created by Faith D'Ambrosio, author of the Pitfalls and Pixies WordPress blog, this packet of new supplimentary creations will surely let players fear the darker side of the Faerie realm and allow Dungeon Masters the change to explore their weird sense of beauty and terror. 

Included in this PDF includes new races and sub-races, including Naiads, Aerial and bloodthirsty Redcaps as well as Faerie Dragonborn and Night Hag-blooded Tieflings. There are creatures ranging from vampiric Glaistig, lycanthropic Blinkwolves and even two stat blocks for twin Archfey brothers. The last segment is a bevy of magical items, including powerful masks of the faerie courts and mystifying spellbooks. 

Content which relates to the Big Book of Fey includes 'The Night Market' and Summoner classes created also by Faith D'Ambrosio.

There should be a button on the page which says 'Add to Cart'.

What does the content consist of actually? Is it mostly a monster manual supplment? Are there any sample adventures? What kind of background and advice for the DM is present to guide their development of faerie adventures?

Price reduced down to four dollars. : ) Original price was suggested from someone else without knowledge of the TRPG community.

I'm glad you like it! I always thought that the fey were under-represented in 5e, so my creations aim to remedy this. Also thanks for pointing that out!

Rules Edition(s)
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
