Special Traits

  • Cunning Action. On each of its turns, the shadow fey can use a bonus action to take the Dash, Disengage, or Hide action.
  • Fey Ancestry. The shadow fey has advantage on saving throws against being charmed, and magic can’t put it to sleep.
  • Innate Spellcasting. The shadow fey’s innate spellcasting ability is Charisma. It can cast the following spell innately, requiring no material components:
    • 2/day: misty step (when in shadows, dim light, or darkness only)
  • Sneak Attack (1/turn). The shadow fey deals an extra 10 (3d6) damage when it hits a target with a weapon attack and has advantage on the attack roll, or when the target is within 5 feet of an ally of the shadow fey that isn’t incapacitated and the shadow fey doesn’t have disadvantage on the attack roll.
  • Sunlight Sensitivity. While in sunlight, the shadow fey has disadvantage on attack rolls and on Wisdom (Perception) checks that rely on sight.
  • Traveler in Darkness. The shadow fey has advantage on Intelligence (Arcana) checks made to know about shadow roads and shadow magic spells or items.
