Children and Champions of the Fey Header

A child of the fey, adopted and embraced into their fold, stands ready to become a true champion! Do you, too, dare join the folk of faerie?

Whether you want to create a character who is deeply immersed in the Feywild, or someone who just has a touch of fey about them—in Children and Champions of the Fey, we have collected all the tools you need to connect narrative and mechanics and build the fey character you want!

Your Journey Begins!

This book provides you with everything you need to build a character linked to the Feywild, and the flexibility to control how deeply immersed you want your character to be. You can go all-in and build a sprite who has never left their home plane, with all their lineage traits, subclass, feats, and magical items linked to the forest they are sworn to protect. Or you could play a dryad who was adopted by korred as a seedling before, gripped by wanderlust, learning divination from centaurs she met along her travels. Or you could play a halfling who was abducted from the Prime Material Plane by a hag and grew up as her protégée in the Feywild—destined for greatness and groomed to become a hag herself. Or you could play a human from the Prime Material Plane who has had one single encounter with a tooth fairy in a faerie ring in the forest behind her home when she was a child, leaving some of the fairy’s magic lingering. The choice is yours, and the options presented here mechanically support each of these narratives—and countless more!

We have collected nine iconic fey cultures in this book—check the previews below for a glimpse into their realms! Each comes with:

  • An introduction that acquaints you with the culture’s core values and traditions.
  • Physical, social, and vocational traits—and a new straightforward and flexible character creation system that allows you to mix and match to build your own lineage and backstory from them!
  • A subclass tied to the culture.
  • One or more feats tied to what you could learn from the culture.
  • A legacy item that grows in power with you as you level, tapping into core concepts of the previous options.
  • Where we felt that something was missing and there were no established mechanics to fit these features, we included additional boons: we have transformation rituals to become a true hag or a darkling elder, and fairie boons bestowed on trusted confidants!

Meet the Fey!

Children and Champions of the Fey: Centaurs

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.
