Title: The Complete Guide to Fey
Author: R. Scott Kennan
Publisher: Goodman Games
Format: 80-page perfect-bound book
From the faerie realms come both wonder and terror...
Mossy glades at dawn, still pools never touched by man, rings of toadstools in the moonlight, castles of ice in the clouds: these are fairy places, realms of the immortals. The fey wander at the fringes of civilization, and dare to tread where no mortal foot has ever been. They are beings of hope and tragedy, and there has always been a subtle sadness that seems to surround them. Mortals believe that they are creatures of life, and indeed they are, but not in the ways mankind thinks.
The fey are a diverse group, almost so diverse as to defy classification. They have strictures placed upon them that manking does not understand, which breed fear and mistrust. In some places the fey are honored as near holy beings, while in others, they are slaughtered as demons. Indeed both of these reactions can be justified, at times, but the truth of the matter is often case aside in favor of irrational awe or hatred.
This book hopes to shed light on the fey, and to give the reader a better understanding of these mystical beings. Why, for example, can the fey not bear the touch of cold iron? Why must a dryad remain tied to its tree? What significance do a satyr's pipes or a grig's fiddle have? Why do the fey have a reputation for stealing babes from their cradles? These questions, and many, many more, will be answered in the pages of this book.
The Complete Guide to Fey is a stand-alone, world-neutral sourcebook covering everything you ever wanted to know about fey. It covers all the conventional types of fey, as well as many new kinds. It contains new races, classes, prestige classes, feats, and spells, as well as an entirely new way of looking at the fey. The Complete Guide to Fey can be integrated easily into any fantasy setting.
