Actions

  • Fey Weapon. Melee Weapon Attack: +6 to hit, range 5 ft., one target. Hit: 5 (1d6 + 2).
  • Fey Charm. The fey noble targets one humanoid or beast they can see within 30 feet of them. The target must succeed on a DC 16 Wisdom saving throw or be magically charmed. The charmed creature regards the noble as a trusted friend to be heeded and protected. Although not under the noble’s control, the charmed target takes the fey’s requests and actions in the most favorable way they can. Each time the noble or its allies do anything harmful to the target, they can repeat the saving throw, ending the effect on a success. Otherwise, the Fey Charm lasts until the next sunset or sunrise or the fey noble perishes or ends the effect as a bonus action. If the target’s saving throw is successful, the target is immune to the noble’s Fey Charm for the next 24 hours.

About

Fey nobles are the most powerful, and human-like, of the fey, usually appearing as particularly beautiful humanoids clad in elaborate, fine, if somewhat outdated clothing, if they bother to wear any at all. Nobles oversee courts of other fey and are often fascinated with people: their desires, drives, and imaginations, and Fey nobles seek to be close to them and learn more about these things.

This can lead some fey nobles to invite mortal people to be guests in their courts and at their revels, but it causes others to treat people as curiosities to be captured, “tamed,” and studied.
