  • Innate Spellcasting. The atomie’s innate spellcasting ability is Charisma (spell save DC 14, +6 to hit with spell attacks). It can innately cast the following spells, requiring no material components:
  • Shrink Ray. A creature affected by an atomie’s ray of enfeeblement has disadvantage on opportunity attacks, and its natural reach is reduced by 5 feet (to a minimum of 5 feet).


  • Rapier. Melee Weapon Attack: +5 to hit, 5 ft. reach, 1 target. Hit: 5 (1d4 + 3) piercing damage.


In lands thick with fey, atomies often serve as border sentries or bodyguards to nymphs, dryads, or other more powerful fey creatures. While atomies prove only passable in their ability to defend such creatures, other fey accept their fealty out of respect and perhaps with a bit of mirth as well. Atomies enjoy their time as honor guards, but often grow bored and leave their posts in search of adventure.

Small but Fierce. Atomies perceive themselves as larger than they actually are. Like pups standing up to a fullgrown cur, atomies never back down from aggression, and take tremendous pride in defeating and humiliating foes larger than themselves. Atomies find great pleasure in shoring up the odds in a fight against larger foes. They make use of their Shrink Ray to shock and humiliate humanoid opponents, giving them a chance to make a killing jab. Atomies employ their invisibility to get in close and make sneak attacks before darting back out of reach.

Duelist. These nimble creatures adore swordplay and practice with their blades endlessly. Atomies often travel their lands seeking adventure tinged with mischief.

Sensitive to bullying and oppression, atomies revel in turning the tables on a cruel mayor or tormenting dishonorable mercenary bands. Atomies, enamored with tales of epic duels and the defeat of great evils, sometimes follow adventuring parties and eavesdrop on their nightly tales by the campfire. If a warrior in the group tends to boast of his swordplay, an atomie rarely resists the urge to humble him by sabotaging his equipment or invisibly reducing him and challenging him to a duel.
