Satyrs, Variant (3.5e Race)
From D&D Wiki
Satyrs are interested only in sport: frolicking, piping, chasing wood nymphs, and other pleasures. They resent intrusions and drive away any creature that offends them. A lucky wanderer may stumble on a woodland celebration, which will contain an equal number of dryads and fauns plus other woodland creatures and even centaurs. Strangers are welcomed only if they contribute some good food and drink, especially superior wines. Such wine can also be used to lure or bribe satyrs. If a group includes elves, they have a better chance of being welcomed.
These celebrations last all night in warm months, with newcomers waking up the next morning with massive headaches, minus a few valuables, and not a woodland creature (nor their tracks) to be found.
Satyrs have the legs and horns of a goat, but otherwise look human
They get along with rangers, druids, bards, elves, gnomes and centaurs
Usually chaotic neutral
They live mostly in large forests
Most of them revere the god Damh of the Seelie Court.
Satyrs speak Sylvan and Common

When it plays, all creatures within a 60-foot spread (except satyrs) must succeed on a Will save or be affected by charm person, sleep, or fear (caster level 10th; the satyr chooses the tune and its effect).
In the hands of other beings, these pipes have no special powers. A creature that successfully saves against any of the pipe’s effects cannot be affected by the same set of pipes for 24 hours. The save DC is Charisma-based.
