The Pixie Trickster - Races of Eira Preview (now with art)

The Pixie race and class where my first entries into the OSR community and the positive response of the Pixie is one of the factors that lead to the creation of this blog. The following is a slightly revised Pixie Trickster to fit more inline with the whole of "Lands of Eira" and to be less generic/setting neutral.

The artwork was commissioned by me and done by the wonderful Nacho Penguin over at Deviantart.

The Pixie Trickster

The Pixies trickster is a mischievous little fae, who works best when they are pulling pranks on others. Lost your coin purse? Did your pants suddenly fall down? did you find yourself unable to let go of that barmaid's rear-end? Most likely a Pixie trickster.

  1. Why d6-1 instead of d4? Can they fly?

    I always liked the rule from Thieves Guild where there is a 25% chance that whatever they say won't be believed.
