The fey in official books seem to be drawn from a narrow set of archetypes, hardly worth having their own monster type. Third party publishers can address this need, but it is all too easy to do it wrong. It would be easy to present fey as just more sword fodder.

The Iconic Bestiary - Classic Fey addresses all that. It is nice collection of classic fey creatures drawn from myth and folklore. And it does make them more than simple sword fodder. It is challenging to portray fey creatures given their often utterly alien mindset and the aura of superstition associated with them. Classic Fey provides interesting and flavorful guidelines helping to preserve this supernatural feel to fey, with a nice array of details in each one - encounter guidelines, adventure ideas, and knowledge entries.<br><br> <b>LIKED</b>: The background and detail on fey behavior. The feats are great to add variety and unpredictability. Adventure hooks and knowledge roll results are also always welcome in creature books, and especially applicable here.<br><br><b>DISLIKED</b>: I'm not so sure that some of the creatures captured herein classify as fey in my mind.<br><br><b>QUALITY</b>: Very Good<br><br><b>VALUE</b>: Very Satisfied<br>
