Magical Minds #2 – Earrings of the Sidhe

2 February 2010 in Magical Minds by

As I mentioned in my last post my daughter wanted to help with D&D and so has invented some magic items. It falls to me to interpret her work into usable D&D stat blocks.

So today we present the some magical earrings. When I asked what they did she replied, “They turn you into a tiny fairy, with wings, and you can fly.”

The creator of today's item

After a bit of work, here’s the result.

Earrings of the Sidhe

These silver earrings capture the beauty of dew drops on a blade of grass, in their sparkling precious stones.

Level: 6
Price: 1,800 gp
Item Slot: Head

Power (Daily • Polymorph): Standard Action. You and your gear assume the form of a tiny fairy. While in this form:

  • You can’t attack.
  • Your size is Tiny.
  • Your gear is merged into your form and is unusable.
  • You gain a +5 bonus to Stealth Checks.
  • You have wings and gain a fly speed equal to your speed.
  • All your defences stay the same.

You can sustain this power as a standard action on your turn and end the power to return to your normal form as a free action. You resume normal form if knocked unconscious or dropped to 0 or fewer hit points.

Is it too weak or too powerful? Let us know in the comments.

Since the dark days of the late '70s, Iain has been playing and running RPGs of one type or another. When not with his wife and children or working as a software engineer/Photoshop monkey he spends spare time either shooting pointy sticks at pointless paper targets, practising the art of card magic, or spending time enjoying the varied worlds of role playing.

  1. I could see this being a very handy item for someone who needs to take a series of non-combat actions (can we say skill challenge like unlocking a door or defusing a trap?) in the middle of a fight, except that it’s a standard action to maintain. You can move around, nigh unseen, but that’s it.

    Really, it’s only useful for hidden movement. If that’s your intention, then it works quite well. I can’t think of any of my characters who would put these on, but that could just be me.

  3. Aye, I thought it refreshing to have something that wasn’t combat orientated. And as far as my daughter’s concerned it can turn you into a fairy, nuff said! *grins*

  5. I like it! I don’t think it’s too powerful, and would make a great gift from a Fey queen or something. It’s usable in game, and could lead to some good RP.

    What happens when the fairy form you assume is thought by the fairies themselves to be one from an old prophecy? They might demand your aid in their own affairs, and won’t take no for an answer… muahahahahaaa…
