The Fair Folk.  The Good Kingdom.  The Sidhe.  The Far Wanderers.  Whatever you want to call them!  They’re a blight!  Sour my milk and rot my crops, snatch up the neighborhood infants, turn the trapper inside out like a dinner food dish.  Can’t stand ’em, they must be pure evil!  You seen the mad witch beyond the hill?  Surely, she’s in league with them!  SHE IS! – Jerick Cormant, local farmer and general curmudgeon

The Fey, a description for mythic spirits of many kinds.  There’s even overlap with other planars and creature types too!  The undead, fiends, celestials, even elementals.  To some, fey is just a label for the spiritfolk from ethereal realms beyond, fascinated by our mortal world.  Many have taken permanent residence beyond the mainstays of mortal civilization.  Often hidden, the fey watch and observe for a variety of reasons… some more benign than others.

Author’s Note: Faith of Brynvalk is hosting the June 2019 RPG Blog Carnival with a Fae theme to it.  So, I figure that it’s not too much of a divergence to make a fey themed post in the middle of my planar theme.  You’ll see a mix of updated old monsters and a few new ones!  Enjoy!

July 2018 RPG Blog Carnival – Tabletop Tales

My good blogger buddy, Brynvalk, is hosting a theme once more!  This time around, it’s “Tabletop Tales“.  If you wanna know more, please hop over to the page in the link and help support the theme!  For more on RPG Blog Carnival, please go here!  Despite the slight break in theme from Gaslamp Fantasy/Gothic Horror/Weird Western, my content will continue during the next week.  Who knows?  Maybe I’ll make another blog carnival post that’s also a themed post for here.  Some kinda lore related post or world building that ties into the theme of stories in the tabletop realm.  I may be truly something out there, but I have a few fun ideas here and there!

In the meantime, please indulge a mad bard as he recants tales of wonder, woe and weeeeiiiiiiirrrrrddd stuff!  Let me share with you stories of high adventure!  (cue Conan the Barbarian theme)
