  • Fey Bargain (1/Day). The fey grants one creature a limited form of wish, per the spell but unable to duplicate an effect exceeding that of a 7th-level spell. In exchange, the creature is cursed to be carried to a never-ending fey ball every night in their dreams. Each long rest, the creature must make a DC 17 Wisdom saving throw or gain no benefits of rest. The curse may ended by any effect that would end bestow curse, but the creature also loses any benefit granted by the fey bargain (if possible).
  • Innate Spellcasting. The courtier’s innate spellcasting ability is Charisma (spell save DC 18, +10 to hit with spell attacks). It can innately cast the following spells, requiring no material components:
  • Magic Weapons. The courtier’s attacks are magical.
  • Spellthrust. When the courtier deals a critical hit, it may spend a bonus action to cast a spell on the same target. The target receives disadvantage on any roll it makes as part of this spell.


  • Multiattack. The courtier makes two attacks.
  • Rapier Flurry. Melee Weapon Attack: +13 to hit, 5 ft. reach, 1 target. Hit: 22 (3d8 + 9) piercing damage. The target provokes an opportunity attack if it leaves the courtier’s reach voluntarily before the courtier’s next turn. This occurs even if the target uses an action or ability that normally prevents opportunity attacks.


Fey courtiers make deals to the benefit of their royal lieges, forge secret alliances with citizens of foreign lands, and inveigle mortals into endless revels in the inverted fey city while sapping the vitality of their victims to sate their alien appetites. Fey courtiers prefer to employ trickery and extortion over direct violence, but don’t shy away from a fight if it is the fastest way to get what they want.
