Scales.png This page is of questionable balance. Reason: Magical wings uses weird limitations and nonconventional time measures (30 seconds, 2 minutes, eg). It doesn't make a lot of sense that this race gets to automatically make all weapons they have be finesse (also, no, that's pretty broken and clunky to limit a player this way).

You can help D&D Wiki by better balancing the mechanics of this page. When the mechanics have been changed so that this template is no longer applicable please remove this template. If you do not understand balance please leave comments on this page's talk page before making any edits.

Curwesta Pixie[edit]

"I heard kids playing in the forest but when I searched for them, all I found were toys. Expensive toys." -Villager A

Physical Description[edit]

With their long slender bodies, pointy ears, and how they dress themselves, they can be mistaken for Elves if they weren't so small. A Curwesta Pixie's height varies from 6-9 inches. They commonly also limit their hair length to around the shoulders as large portions of their cities are forges. Curwesta Pixies normally have the exact same physiology with elves except for their uncommonly tiny size, because of this, they had to make up for their short stature which led them to the Curwesta Pixies known today. They succeeded in the realm of crafting that they have created an Implant that each Pixie receives in their baptism into the world. A Crystal like implant usually implanted in the back of the Pixie. The crystal looks like black scarabs similar to that of healing small wounds. Thus they commonly hide it. The Implant grows with the Pixie and because of this, removing the Implant is often fatal. The Implant also strengthens the Pixie allowing them to carry objects they normally can't as well as allowing them to jump up to 1 foot high. When the wings are deployed, they look like a clear crystalline wings similar to that of an insectoid however, it glows a brilliant blue. These wings do not flap when the Pixie is in flight which makes a very strange scene


A few Elves decided to take care of a wrymling who was sentenced to die by the Fae. Because of this atrocity, the wrath of the Fey was brought down to these elves. The curse they received shrunk them to an incredibly small size. Thereafter, they become a mystery as they hid away within underground, only resurfacing after a couple hundred years with their new technology. Their crafts were faster and more efficient compared to the rest including the dwarves. Unfortunately, all of it is relying on the clutch of a mysterious energy they possess. Eventually, their crafts will run out of energy and cease to function. Even so, they were sought out for their skills and capabilities. Any country that possesses their craft would have a significant advantage over the others. Due to the greed and hastiness of the Kingdoms, the Curwesta Pixie's crafts were used in one of the biggest war of their Plane, as well as the last. The war only ended after one of the Major Workshop of the Pixies was mistakenly attacked. This caused whatever mysterious energy they possess to go haywire and eventually destroying the Plane. Now, these Pixies appear across various Planes due to the destruction of their home Plane. To forever be foreigners in the strange lands, a consequence of their constant arrogance.


Their society is mysteriously similar to dwarves, living in Caves and fully immersing themselves their crafts, They are also heavy drinkers for their size. They are a merry folk who are nothing but Honest people who strives to keep their promises hence their own cities is fairly advanced compared to others albeit very small so no visitors who stays over usually. And because they are absorbed in their crafts, they usually have a Forge somewhere which could fit in at least 5 gargantuan creatures in order to create their Works and to show off to people who might visit their place by accident or intentionally. it is rumoured that it is not only caves they live in. It includes dangerous places no sane person would venture to. Up to what extent, the rumour doesn't tell.
