The Fey; sometimes called "Green Folk", "Fair Folk", "Fairies," or "Wee Folk". were magical creatures from the Feywild; a parallel plane to Corwyn.

Many Fey creatures typically have supernatural and/or agical abilities and a connection to nature or to some other force or place. The language of the fey is called Sylvan. These magical creatures come in many sizes, shapes, textures. All Fey exemplify a strong sense of natural wonder.

The Fey are said to be ruled by noble Eladrins and other Arch-Fey


There were many unsubstantiated legends about the Fey; especially in and around the deep-forested areas of Corwyn. Faeries, in good and friendly lands, with warm lush forests and babbling brooks, were said to be short, friendly folk, with a twinkle in their eye, pronouncing wealth and good luck on those deserving, who often happened to be the mortals who found them. In other places, blasted lands and choking swamps, fey were seen to be mad redcaps, devouring infants, corrupting youth, and bringing bad luck to any in whom they happened to take interest. The truly uninformed would see the elves, dwarves, gnomes, and even goblins as a form of fey.

As with any legend, there was a touch of truth within. Many fairies were tiny, and many of the legends about fey were quite true. Many fey; pixies for example, could only be seen by those to whom they choose to reveal themselves, though powerful wizards could often make them out. Elves and fey were united by common belief, by their connection to natural purity, and for the fey, this was enough to create a connection of appearance. Gnomes enjoyed making light of supposedly serious things, and this united them with fey as well, though only in attitude. Fey and goblins might be connected more closely, by age-old blood lines, but this was pure conjecture.

As for whether fairies desired weal and woe, both were the case. Fey were creatures connected closely to nature, and just as rain from clouds saved farmers and troubled travelers, so did fey help some and injure others. Fey were a people of many different alignments and interests, like humans were, and just as most of humans, dwarves, and elves concern themselves little with the fair folk, so the fair folk, by and large, concern themselves very little with the mortal races.

The darkest and most powerful legend about fey went back eons, to the creator races. Some sages claimed that fey creatures known as the Le-Shay were one of the four, possibly five, creator races. Others passed this off as pure nonsense. Going to the source, asking ancient fairies, proved only to be a headache, alas, as none seemed interested in providing a straight answer.

It was said that to protect oneself from fey one should carry iron, wear the color red, turn one's clothing inside out, or be near running water. Iron was said to be detrimental to the skin of faeries, the color red and inside-out clothing a sort of camouflage because the Fair folk couldn't see it, and running water a source for disrupting magic spells or bad luck. Most of this was commonly understood ot be be nothing more than harmless folklore.


There are many different species of fey and the term "fey" seemed to simply mean any creature whose origins were tied to the Feywild. Some of the most common Fey creatures were:
