This material is published under the OGL


Physical Description

Fauns are people with the body of a human and the lower legs and tail of a goat. They have curled hair and are often found with a musical instrument. They are lovers of poetry, drink, music, laughter, and everything that they find stirs passion in themselves and others. Of all the fey, fauns are best known for exploring, adventure-weaving, and for starring in great epic tales and love stories.


Artistic Soul. All fauns love the arts, be it music, dance, painting, ritualistic combat, or storytelling. For this reason, many fauns become bards, or at least spend inordinate amounts of time hanging around with and haranguing bards. They can easily become distracted by pretty things—inanimate or otherwise—and fight harder to protect something they consider special. Of course, when new pretty thing comes along, a fickle faun can drop a current obsession and pick up a new one in the blink of an eye.

Travelers at Heart. The faun love adventure and finding new places. They typically roam from town to town learning new stories as they go. Many dabble in professions that allow them to always be on the move, often becoming merchants, sailors, and soldiers just to find somewhere new and exciting. Of all the fey, fauns are the most numerous in mortal lands as they explore everything that they can and cross from the Feywild as often as possible.
