Featured Art: ‘Faerie Boy’ by Evanira
Ah, the warmer months of spring and summer. When life comes about, new and refreshed after the cold winter’s reign. It just makes you want to dance and flit about, doesn’t it?
Well, that sort of merriment comes to Pitfalls and Pixies for the month of June. Once more, you, adventurous homebrewers, set foot into the mysterious Realm of Wonder in this month’s installment titled The Third Fey March.
The Third Fey March is part of an expanding network (or should we say hivemind for some of the creatures) to provide the tabletop gaming community with more Faerie/Fey themed content, as it seems to be drastically small in comparison to things like demons, dragons and the like. And certainly, lady Titania and lord Oberon are none too pleased by this.
What Qualifies For ‘The Third Fey March’?
As the world of the Good Neighbors is stretched far and wide, and their mythology as varied as the cultures they come from, any sort of topic can be chosen, including but not limited to:
- How do the Fae and other sylvan beings interact with your home world/personal setting?
- Tricks and traps that faeries use to befuddle and trick mortals
- Of course, new
monstersinhabitants of the Faerie Realm. Everything from bwcas to the mightiest of Archfey, nothing is held off!
- How you incorperate real-world mythos of the Faerie Folk into your games/stories
- Sylvan-themed player options; races, backgrounds, feats and items (both normal and cursed: the Faerie Folk do love curses and tricks, after all!)
- Fairies in popular culture and media, and how this has influenced them across the media spectrum
- Show off your fantastical art with a sylvan motif! Fine art, writing, cosplay? Everything and anything goes!
- Re-branding existing content as fey themed
- Taking characters from pop culture who have such faerie ties and statting them for actual play in games, as either hostile or friendly NPC’s
But Brynvalk, How Do I
Sign My Soul to the Fae Participate?
