Campfire Fuzz

By:

These small, luminescent creatures are a distant relative of the willowisp, little bits of orangish light that are attracted by the flames of a fire. When enough of them have gathered around a fire, the fire appears to take on a fuzzy indistinctness.

Full Description
These small, luminescent creatures are a distant relative of the willowisp, little bits of orangish light that are attracted by the flames of a fire. When enough of them have gathered around a fire, the fire appears to take on a fuzzy indistinctness.

The Fuzz feeds off the warmth and light of the fire, re-radiating it to the world about it far more slowly than the fire would have. They are non-aggressive, and a Fuzzy fire can be used for everything a normal fire would be used for, though the fire will seem somewhat cooler from a distance. Should someone try to put something into or take something out of the fire, they will part to let them pass. Like other fey, they cannot bear the touch of cold iron, and will flitter away from such very quickly.

Additional Information
Nothing eats the Fuzz, and the Fuzz eat nothing but the warmth of the fire. They will congregate along common campsites, and will often invade homes, though few folk really mind them.

A nice diversion for the adventurers.... one night their campfire is oddly cold... they'll have a fit trying to figure out what's going on and it's all nothing!

since I've plagued my pcs with way to many will'o'wisps over the years, these little critters are just perfect for their next campfire! Very nice.

SImple and interesting. Not everything needs to eat the PCs I suppose!

This is cute. They remind me of fantasy lightning bugs. I can see these adding a lot of neat flavor to a camping scene. Thanks!

I have an idea for a Pyromancer NPC who might just happen to attract a few of these harmless fey who enjoy basking in the warmth of his fiery destruction.

Arune Spheres
Arune Spheres are hollow, blue reflective metallic spheres about 25 cm/ 10" in diameter (though some are larger). They are made of a thickish glass mirrored on the inside. When magical energies are flowed through the sphere, it produces a haunting tone, which can be varied by the type, intensity, and harmonics of energies passed through it. (It sounds like an electronic organ.) If multiple energy flows are generated, multiple sounds can be generated, some of which sound like mundane instruments. Masters of The Craft can replicate almost any sound in their memory with one. Though originally used as a training tools for those with The Power, it has been adapted to be a musical instrument. All it takes is someone with patience, medative training, and a touch of the Power, to use it. (Thus becoming the favorite instrument of anyone who was tested to the first level of the Craft, but failed to advance).
