How much of an asshole do you like your fairies in your setting?

>> No.55068934

You got two of them, sort of, in my setting. The more common ones in the galaxy tend to team up with Aliens and help them out. Imagine a fairy providing radio backup in a modern/sci-fi setting.

The other is Humans, one of the smallest species in the Galaxy. They have transforming robots.

>> No.55068960

Mischievous, but with an equal capacity for good and evil ranging by individuals, as in humans. A nice fairy will tell a wounded warrior how to get to the healing spring, but might hide his clothes while he's bathing for a laugh, because fairies love a good prank. An unseelie fairy might make him promise them his firstborn or something, and then when he inevitably tries to get out of it later reverses the healing power of the spring and watches him die.

I prefer them mostly neutral. They prank humans and other humanoids to deter them from entering their territory. However, if threatened they will gladly trap you in a fucked up glamer and have you walk in circles until you die from dehydration.

I base my fey on internet users, of all things.

Like, "I'm gonna strangle you with you own intestines if you say that again" is a tame enough statement when some 12-year-old says it over CoD voice-chat. But it takes on a whole new meaning when a capricious fey-lord says it.

This is about where I like it, too. Possibly with a dose of it being really hard to tell a malicious fairy from a benevolent fairy before the former shows their hand and does something awful.

>> No.55069872

Pixies in my setting are one of the worst things ever. They literally only cause trouble, using pixie dust to make people susceptible to their telempathic power called Pixie Whispers. They cause hallucinations, implant desires, and just generally tell lies to the inner mind. They're literally the most dangerous part of living in forests, and are very difficult to avoid. Most people just hire wizards to exterminate them, but a skilled mage or empath can learn to use these things to their advantage. These guys can control picked by taking pixie dust, letting them do things like sense from large parts of the forest, use pixie whispers on people and animals, and predict weather.

I like this.

if by fairies you mean like your picture then they are benevolent creatures that live in the feylands at the pleasure of one archfey or another, if you mean fairies as in fey then they don't see mortals as equals and most of them completely ignore us, a few of the more militant eco-warriors among the summer court get butt-frustrated at mortal attitudes to forests which culminated in first contact between human and fey resulting in a 30 year war which devastated a county before the gate spell could be sealed and a few members of the winter court find mortals a hilarious distraction from the politics of their home plane and take great pleasure in fucking with us but most fey don't even give a shit about the mortal realms, which is pretty lucky for the mortal realms all things considered.

I play Hackmaster as a Pixie-Fairy and I do this.

I have somehow managed to stay alive for two years of real-time weekly sessions simply by virtue of people either
A) Believing me
B) Calling my bluff, but me being fast enough at getting to a safe distance so all my party members have to fight instead

it helps that I'm the face

Any good lines you've got I can use for inspiration? For context, my character is the bard-class equivalent and has Charisma and Looks that literally go beyond the cap, as well as Sphinx-level intelligence and very high Wisdom, but he 3 Strength and Constitution and has absolutely no sense of impulse control. He is also one of the single most famous individuals in the continent thanks to a bunch of very, very retarded bullshit he's pulled off and lied about and spread around.

He's still incapable of doing more than negative damage with his sword.

>> No.55076989

They don't intend to be assholes but they are a problem by dint of being completely unable to empathize with mortals and being uninterested in figuring out how to interact with us without that empathy. And we can't empathize with them. If they show up in your area you may be better off having intermediaries like elementals negotiate terms of cohabitation with them in your stead. The best case scenario is literally just to drive them away from you with violence, but most communities can't do that.

>> No.55078628

The fae in my setting are pranksters who love a laugh but wouldn't do anything that could seriously harm someone (and if they do, they'd patch the poor fucker up). They are considered children until well into their 300s, and live for about 1200 years. They get a bit more mature with age, but still love jokes.

"I can bring you a pain so sharp and powerful you will weep not in agony, but in awe. You will see the sky turn grey and your food taste dull. All your aches and pains will leave and the music will die. You will beg to feel again. I will smile and walk away."

It depends on the kind. Lesser fairies (small winged ones with no magic) can be pretty caustic but since theyre more like annoying little people with wings instead of mysterious magical sprites, they have to temper themselves around humans. It isnt smart to go around and purposely piss off people who are bigger than you by 5 and a half feet on average.

Greater Fairies are the upper class who are taller and have magic and they interact less with humans, and when they do they usually lean towards impassive but are narcissistic amd selfish to a fault. If they can get something out of someone they won't hesitate to try and get it from them.

I want to expand on this for a moment.

The internet is an incredible outlet for creation. See how I create the words of this sentence from nothing, and with what ease I summon up an image of an incredulous girl from a Japanese cartoon. It is so easy to create, I will feel no remorse when this thread autosages and this post disapears.

This is how fey feel all the time. Their fey realms are based on emotion and thought and aren't static like the physical world, so they literally don't give a shit about anything but themselves; not because they lack empathy, or because they're evil, but because they know that anything (or anyone) they value can literally be created again once it is gone.

Here's an example. When a fey lord takes a human wife, the emotion he feels is real, genuine love, as true as you or I might feel. When the fey lord kills his human lover one month later, it's not because he no longer loves her; it's because he's never had to deal with a relationship with any badsides. To the fey lord, he's not killing his human wife, because (he thinks that) he can just recreate her later. He probably won't even notice that his wife is nothing more than a very sophisticated automaton, since he 'recreated' her from his perceptions, which she still fits.

There were no dwarves in Skyrim. In fact, the only Elder Scrolls game to feature a living (or undead, for that matter) dwarf was Morrowind. Please don't be the kind of basic bitch who refers to the whole series by the name of the most recent installment.

In one of my settings, fairies are vicious mind-affecting killers who pretty much do two things to humans and fey beings - they either murder them or torture them before murdering them. Even being in the same general area as one can cause paranoia and anxiety and ultimately panic attacks.

In the other they're more your typical lives in the woods not bothering people and are occasionally mischievous but typically well meant woodland critters.

Why would you nuke a nation? She doesn't want you to nuke nations, that's silly!
She just wants you to awaken the crystals!
All the crystals!
All of them.
Besides, nuking a nation would be pointless - what does it matter if one chunk of one landmass on one reality is a nuclear hellhole when the prize you're after is giving ALL realities to Lord Ouroboros? You might even damage a crystal and that'll set things back a few thousand years.

Sorry, I'm sure I oversold it. It's a Macross inspired setting with lots of Alien races, so you can meet all sorts of giant weird creatures. Main gimmick is that there is no federation or empire, being friendly with your neighbors is extra important. Especially when you barely reach past the Ankle of many of them.

THIS. Fey behave with such disregard because they live in a world with little to no consequences. At least, none that affect them severely.

Nice. Nice nice nice. I'm going to steal these verbatim.

My character is not really very powerful at all, he's just extremely conceited. But I like this, I like it a lot. This is a good way of describing the mindset of someone who lives in an idealistic (as contrary to materialistic) world, and is perfectly capable of controlling it.

It's actually also a pretty good way of describing the difference between high and low Wisdom Mages (Ascension-type ones).
