    Thanks for posting these statistics. The members at Yog sothoth kindly did so as well, but left out the fact that these critters are naturally invisible.

    In CoC fifth edition there are stats for pixies. See Rpgstarwizard's post for the stats, which he has kindly reproduced.

    Sling 30%, eh? So it's not pixie dust, after all. It's the stars that you see when you get bonked between the eyes!

    Depending on the fey in question, SIZ of 1d6 would make for a mighty big fairy. I'm pretty sure a cat is pegged at SIZ 1.

    When it comes to fairies does SIZ matter? Especially when they are invisible?
    There is fun in fear....

    I'm sure that they get a bonus for surprise attack while invisible.

    Well, it does if you want them to be smaller than a cat. If they're sprites, nixies, pixies, brownies or whatnot their SIZ should probably reflect that.

    Found this in Miskatonic yesterday and thought of you.

    STR 1d4
    CON 1d4
    SIZ 1
    INT 2d4
    POW 1d3
    DEX 2d6+8
    Mov 6/3 climbing
    HP 2

    Weapons:
    Bite 33%, damage 1
    Massed Attack 99%, see below

    Armor:
    none, but little people are tiny and invisible. While unseen, an attacker's player must roll D100 equal to or less than POW to hit a creature. If visible, their small SIZ and high DEX halve firearm and missile attacks; hand to hand attacks are at full skill. The drunkenness required to see the little people imparts a penalty of its own (up to -30 percentile adjustment to rolls and skills.)

    Spells:
    All little people know the Sleep spell. Little people of POW 3 also know Summon Banshee and Unseelie Transformation. All are faerie spells.

    Skills:
    Climb 95%, Hide 95%, Jump 90%, Sneak 90%, Spot Hidden 45%

    Sanity Loss:
    Enduring an invisible little person's harassment costs 0/1 SAN. Seeing a lone little person costs 0/1d2 SAN. Seeing an angry horde of them or suffering a massed attack costs 1/1d6 SAN.

    Massed Attack: Little people usually attack only in strength. When swarming, 1d20+5 goblins leap on and try to overwhelm an enemy. If the number of little people overcomes the target's STR when matched on the Resistance Table, the victim falls and loses any attacks that round and the next round as well. Each combat round a victim is swarmed upon and felled, divide the number of attacking goblins by three to determine how many points of bit damage the victim suffers. Round down fractions.

    The Sleep spell is a group spell the fairies cast. Each provides a mp and then it's mpOW to see if target falls asleep. Summon Banshee is a blood ritual where one of the little people is killed to summon a big bad monster and Unseelie Transformation is a pact a human can enter in with the little people. When the human dies, the little people collect the corpse and turn the dead human into a living member of the little people.

    May not be of use to you, but I feel beholden to mention that my favorite version of the Goblin is in one of the Dreamland books. The stats are mostly 1d20s. Gives wonderful randomness. Pair it with a Brian Froud aesthetic and my day is made.

    Thank you Chaot. These are very useful to me.

    How would you stat up Arthur Machen/Robert Howard/George McDonald style "little people"? Things That Were Once Men, they have dwindled in size (or SIZ) during their long subterranean exile but have increased in ferocity, decadence, and occult knowledge. They may not even look very human anymore (it varies by author and story) but are much stronger than their child-like statures would suggest. But they still like human women (or men, depending on the fairy's gender).

    How about D4+2 for SIZ, D6+3 for STR, 2D6+6 for APP/CHA for human like appearance as some faeries can be attractive unless you regard that as a glamour. CON should be high - 2D6+6 as should INT, POW and DEX.
