A group of fey warriors walks quietly through the moonlit woods. They watch a nearby elf village and signal two scouts to move into position. Grim squirrels are raiding the village in the middle of the night. Elves, humans, halflings, orcs, goblins, and many other humanoids hate these unpleasant little creatures.

Fearless Fey. Grim squirrels are often underestimated. The tiny fey are rather dangerous in large groups. Armed with swords and slings, the squirrels take on much larger foes.

Hidden Hideouts. These evil fey live in hollow trees and have their headquarters in a large burrow. They carefully store their food and treasure and have enough extra supplies to stay in their lair for a long time.

Flying Mounts. Noble and elite warriors ride gloom owls as their mounts. The bold owls enable these dark fey to conduct daring raids.
