OSE Encounter Activities - Pixie

Unperceivable Pixies! The Fair Folk can be both fun and frightening. I really like to stress the importance of using Euphemistic Names in my games. I even have Players that refuse to refer to them by anything else after facing their fickle wrath.

Typically invisible (I do like how Tall Tales of the Wee Folk handled this with it’s Invisibility to Mortals), so it may be tricky for a party to actually witness any of these activities unless they are gifted with something akin to Second Sight or peer through a naturally bored hole in a pebble or stone. It’s another table for when the tables are turned, I suppose: When the party surprises the suprisers 😊, but still feels useful for breathing some life into the encounter, even if it’s only in the mind’s eye of the DM. Come to think of it, I might try something a little different with Invisible Stalker.

I’m sure this table could prove useful for other types of Kindly Neighbors, but don’t worry. I fully intend to do a separate one for Sprites, since they receive their own listing among the Monsters.
