Leprechaun Pranksters (Greater Fodder)
rating: 0+x

By Mailanka

These pint-sized, angry, green-wearing pranksters love to stick it to those snooty, arrogant humans. They'll climb up onto tables, waving their shillelaghs angrily while shouting insults in their thick brogue to anyone that will listen. As soon their opponents round on them, they race away, clutching at their hats, relying on their Ridiculous Luck while they and their comrades cast Charms on their foes, completely hampering their ability to fight.

When they can be asked to join forces with other Faerie kin, they lend their magical strength, while relying on strength in numbers to keep their own alive against dangerous delvers.

Class: Faerie.
Combat Effectiveness Rating: 1 (OR 4 and PR -12).
Notes: Can be reasoned with (if drunk), otherwise, really pissed off and only going to negotiate with you in an effort to get your guard down. Leprechaun Charms mean all the little bastards have three spells. A list of favorites include: Beast Summoning (not control, just summoning) Clumsiness, Fumble, Explosive Fireball, Perfect Illusion, Flash, Invisibility, Animate Object, Curse, Drunkenness, Forgetfulness, Winged Knife, Blink, Tangle Growth, Animate Plants, Plant Form Other, Shapeshift Others. For the interest of expediency, assume all Leprechaun fodder have the same three spells. Remember, one fodder only has enough fatigue to cast one spell once. Often drunk.***

***Ha ha, yeah, you think these guys are cute. But if you throw a mob of Leprechauns at your party, and they end up drunk with a lampshade on their head, staring stupidly at their sword, running from rampaging bears, tripping over their own sandal-laces, and making out with a pole that it mistook for a beautiful woman, don't come running to me to complain about it. Kromm gave them the Charms and Ridiculous Luck, I just slapped a template on it. I put "Greater" in their tag for a reason, so don't say I didn't warn you.
