I think I'm failing to make these light and airy, some of the previous were kind of creepy, but hey, I'm trying. Here's a few more iconic D&D monsters in Fairy versions:
More owl than badger this stocky creature swoops in silently to attack. Why would a magic-user wish to combine an owl with a badger? Who knows, to allow for burrowing on steep hills?
These are nymphs in the sense of immature insects. Hundreds of tiny green things weaving a circular pattern on logs, or rocks in the forest, a pattern so entrancing . . .
Looks like a fairy the way a dried leaf looks like a leaf. Hard, prickly, these fae continue to live when by all rights they appear they should be dead.
With the last one I was trying for what a fairy lich might be, but it doesn't feel right. Traditionally, fairies weren't supposed to have souls anyway, right? So a fairy isn't any more alive than a leaf in the first place. Ah, well.
