Puca - Creatures of Fae preview

In Gaelic, Caeltic and Welsh folk lore the Puca (or puck (English), pwwca (Welsh)) is a mischievous nature fae who can bring either good or bad fortune onto the person or peoples that cross his path. Some folklore claims them to be purely evil man-eaters, while other tales show the puca as being friendly and enjoying farming.
In Eira, the Puca are closer to the character of Puck in “A Midsummer’s Night Dream” in so much that they are often oblivious to their actions and the consequences of those actions. Puca are immortal fae and are one of the few of the lesser fae to have taken an interest in mortal races out of curiosity not in an attempt to flee the war between the Un-Sidhe and Au-Sidhe courts. While generally nice and good-natured the puca have no inhabitions and live in a constant state of the here and now.  The majority of the fae do not trust puca and during the war neither side attempted to coax the puca into their ranks for fear of their unpredictable nature.

Thoughts are welcome as I am always interested in what others think of my original works.



I.
The stench of rotten fish, sweat, mildewed wood and the ocean rose up from the black waters of the harbor in a visible mist that hung over the free trade city of Wickend adding to the already strong reek of human filth and cheap ale. The setting sun, unable to pierce the vile mist, washed over the crumbling buildings that lined the twisting streets of the Old District. From open doors and windows came the sounds of life, true life, of men laughing and boasting, of women flirting and dealing in their trades. To an outsider, the Old Distr…

Magic Item - Arcane Gauntlet

Arcane Gauntlets are small devices of leather and copper fitted to the wearer's primary hand and feature a small, thin gem imbued with pure arcane energies affixed to the palm. As a standard action the wearer of an Arcane Gauntlet may release its energies up to four times in a single encounter safely, and up to eight times if the wearer is willing to endure the burning residual heat from sustained use of the device.  If an Arcane Gauntlet is used to its maximum effect (eight times) it is inoperable until such a time as its wearer takes a long rest.
