Fey Worms - A Fairy Parasite !

These micro scopic planar parasites infect many types of fey. This cause the small fairy creatures become slaves to the biological needs of the parasitic creatures. Only advanced super science or spells may cure this malady which infects 1 in 10 fairies in the wild.
These parasites cause the fey to emit an azure colored glow & attracts the likes of  trolls, goblins, & worse who eat the poor creatures. The spoor of  these monsters allows the fey worms to continue its vicious cycle. A cure disease or light wounds spell  will get rid of the infection only 20% of the time!
In extreme cases the planar parasites can cause the fey to emit a magic missile style energy burst for 1d3 points of damage. This can be quite hazardous in a wood where multiple fey are infected!
Treemen are known to cull areas that are infected by these monsters & they have been know to infect even high elves whose intestines & extremities will light up randomly.

Second Level Spell

 This 2nd level spell is far too easy to cast & opens a diseased portal to a section of Arcadia where these things dwell. The spell may last an additional 1d4 turns & summon 1d20 X 10 worms. High elves & fey have been known to place bounties on the heads of wizards who teach this spell!
There have been several highly mutated versions of these parasites discovered among the various planes including some on various post apocalyptic worlds ! 


  1. Even faerie get parasites, eh? Makes sense. You're ever inventive, Eric!

  2. I try to be & why not parasites for everybody! If they don't discriminate why should I? Thanks for the comment Trey! I was trying to get back to basics here. You know mom, baseball,infected apple pie, & all of that!
