About

This tiny creature resembles an elf with greenish skin. Its hair is light and it is dressed in bright clothing.

A brownie is a timid, quiet fey creature that prefers to live only among its own kind. Most brownies dwell in pastoral areas untouched by civilization, such as deep forests and wild lands far from other creatures.

Brownies are rarely over 18 inches tall. Their hair is always earth-toned such as brown, gray, or tawny. Most brownies prefer green or otherwise brightly colored clothing. They may be distant relatives of pixies and halflings, but this has never been proven.

Brownies avoid combat unless forced. If unable to employ any spells, brownies attack with tiny longswords.

  • Alignment. Unlike most fey, brownies are fairly lawful in alignment, and rarely, if ever, evil.

  • Speed. Your base walking speed is 25 feet.
