{{{description}}}


The poludnitsa (poh-lood-nit-sah) is based on a capricious trickster that appears in Polish, Russian, and Slovak folklore.
Fey of the Farmland. While most fey creatures lurk in forests and prefer twilight or darkness, poludnitsas (also known as midday maidens) dwell in fields of rye and corn near human settlements, most often appearing on hot summer days at high noon. They usually adopt the guise of peasant girls or women, blending with other field workers to pick off potential targets for their malicious punishments. In their true form, poludnitsas appear as comely, elven women clad in all white and carrying a scythe or shears, their bodies shining with radiant sunlight.
Unpredictable Tricksters. The intentions of poludnitsas are hard to predict. Some days, they lure adventurers into ambushes, drive travelers mad, or cause mayhem in villages while changing disguises. On others, they punish the haughty and greedy and dispense helpful advice to wanderers. Poludnitsas loathe and despise hags of all types—though they are sometimes every bit as wicked as their adversaries—and usually aid those who seek to slay them.
