Physical Description

Feyling Race Card

Feyling get to average at a humble height of 3 feet tall. They prefer to walk barefoot but will wear sandals or shoes if the environment proves hazardous, the hair colors range from brown, blond, green, red or silver, curly or straight. Their skin tends toward a rich cinnamon color, white on blush tones and or pale depending on the environment. Feyling ears are pointed, but proportionately not much larger than those of an elves. Feylings do not have body hair and as such can't grow facial hair like the elves or other fey creatures and share similarities in their looks. Feyling's stand out from other short races due to the tail that shares their hair color, but with a darker shade to it, the length of their tail runs up the whole side of the back and up to top of their head. Feylings prefer simple and modest clothing but are willing and able to dress up if the situation demands it, though this more generally depends on the feyling's background.


Throughout the many centuries, this race has slowly made its way out of the feywilds and into the very realms of the material plane to see where their forefathers, the halflings came from. It is unknown if it was a changling or other fey creature that produced these folk, but slowly they have made themselves at home in the material plane forming their own little villages, and townships over the years. They do not own their own nations, hold great portions of land or possess grand titles but such is their nature. Feyling's in the material plane are great merchants, spies, thieves, tricksters, face men or woman, entertainers and natural spellcasters. It is due to this that they are a jack of all trades due to their wide range of versatility.


Society treats Feylings similarly to halflings due to their kind nature, and most races are tolerable to this race. This race dwells in both the material plane and you can find some of their villages or towns within the feywilds naturally, as well as the material plane in isolated settings. Just as with halflings if there is a city or town you can often time find a feyling as well.
