Satyrs are fey creatures who possess the upper body of a human, but have a goat-like lower body. Satyrs of both genders possess horns, though these horns are largely ornamental--that is not to say they're not a point of pride; rather, they're merely not useful in combat.

Satyrs are frequently accused of being debaucherous to excess. This is actually quite commonly the case. For this reason, most satyrs tend towards the chaotic alignments--and in some cases, towards evil.

  • -2 Wisdom, +2 Charisma
  • Medium size.
  • Fey type: satyrs are not subject to spells or effects that affect humanoids only, such as charm person or dominate person. They are, however, susceptible to spells and effects that specifically target fey.
  • A satyr's base land speed is 30 feet.
  • Fey Resistance: A satyr has DR 1/Cold Iron. This DR improves by one for every four Hit Dice the satyr has (to DR 2/Cold Iron at 4th level, DR 3/Cold Iron at 8th level, DR 4/Cold Iron at 12th level, DR 5/Cold Iron at 16th level, and DR 6/Cold Iron at 20th level).
  • Arcane Spirit: A satyr uses their Charisma modifier as their casting statistic for arcane spellcasting classes that use Intelligence as their primary casting statistic.
  • Scent: A satyr has a strong sense of smell. Satyrs have the Scent ability out to 30'.
  • Darkvision usable out to 60'.
  • Woodland Stride: a satyr may move through any sort of undergrowth (such as natural thorns, briars, overgrown areas, and similar terrain) at her normal speed and without taking damage or suffering any other impairment. However, thorns, briars, and overgrown areas that have been magically manipulated to impede motion still affect her. A satyr who gains this ability from a class feature gains a +2 bonus on any check or save required against such magically manipulated areas.
  • Natural Magic: A satyr has a small pool of magical charges they may tap into daily. A satyr has one charge per three class levels, minimum one. A charge may be spent to activate one of the following spell-like abilities or to power a feat with the [Satyr] descriptor: charm animal, charm person, prestidigitation. Caster level equals the satyr's class levels.
  • Automatic Languages: Common, Sylvan. Bonus Languages: Elven, Giant, Gnomish, Halfling.
  • Favored Class: Bard.
