Circle of the Fey[edit]

Druid Circle

Druids within the Circle of the Fey believe that the Feywild is the essence of the material plane. Instead of taking their power from their belief in nature, druids who follow this path gain abilities and spells bestowed on them by the energy of the Feywild itself. This circle allows druids to release the energy of the Feywild in the form of trickery, natural prowess, and the unique power of the Feywild. As the Feywild itself is divided, the Circle of the Fey are divided into two sections: Seelie and Unseelie. The most powerful Seelie can change the reality of the material plane to better suit their Fey power, while Unseelie elders can wither their enemies with a wave of their hand. When you take this druid circle, you must choose one or the other court to be your focus.

Bonus Cantrip

When you choose this circle at 2nd level, you gain one additional cantrip depending on which fey court you choose: one bard cantrip if you chose Seelie or one warlock cantrip if you chose Unseelie.

Feyish Changes

Starting at 2nd level, your body starts changing in ways beneficial to you. You have advantage on Charisma (Persuasion) checks if you chose Seelie, as you start to take on an unearthly beauty. You have advantage on Charisma (Intimidation) checks if you chose Unseelie, because your skin becomes wrinkled like a hag's or your body structure takes on a powerful tone, like a fey guardian. You can also speak, read and write Sylvan

Circle Spells

Your mystical connection to the Feywild infuses you with the ability to cast certain Spells. At 3rd, 5th, 7th, and 9th level you gain access to circle Spells connected to your Fey power.

Consult the spell list associated the Fey court you chose.

Once you gain access to a circle spell, you always have it prepared, and it doesn’t count against the number of Spells you can prepare each day. If you gain access to a spell that doesn’t appear on the druid spell list, the spell is nonetheless a druid spell for you.

3rd: detect thoughts, misty step
5th: major image, plant growth
7th: freedom of movement, polymorph
9th: dream, tree stride
3rd: misty step, ray of enfeeblement
5th: bestow curse, fear
7th: blight, hallucinatory terrain
9th: cloudkill, dominate person

Once you reach 6th level, you can summon a familiar from the Feywild. Summoning a familiar takes 2 hours and 10 gp worth of materials. Use the familiar rules for the familiar, but it is automatically a fey (see find familiar). you can also use the following extra familiars.

Seelie: blink dog, dryad, faerie dragon, pixie, satyr, sprite
Unseelie: displacer beast, dryad, faerie dragon, green hag, sea hag
Fey Sight

Starting at 10th level, you can use your action to see into the Feywild. While doing this, you can see into the Feywild for a radius of 60 ft. Beyond this radius, you are blind. The starting point must be in a location you know. You can use your action to move your viewpoint up to 30 ft. The sight ends when you dismiss it as a bonus action, or after 10 minutes. Once you have used this ability, you cannot use it again until you have finished a long rest.
