It's no secret that I've been excited about Heroes of the Feywild since it was announced. It's also not a secret that I was extremely excited when WOTC announced the book would feature the Satyr as a playable race.
Well, the book is coming out next month and WOTC has begun to release preview exerpts from it...and this week, they've released the Satyr! Yes!
The race information is set like those of the other Heroes books...plenty of role-playing "fluff" mixed with the crunch. The race looks really exciting!
Here's a few stats:
Satyrs get a +2 to charisma, dexterity, or constitution which makes perfect sense to me...especially charisma...they've always been known as charmers.
All Satyrs have to be male...love it!
Satyrs can make saving throws both at the beginning and ending of their turn against fear based effects.
Bluff is always a class skill...makes perfect sense.
And Satyrs get the lure of enchantment racial ability which allows the Satyr to slide an enemy three squares and gain combat advantage against it.
There's also plenty of fluff to go along with all the mechanical rules that really gets me excited about trying out the Satyr.
Recommended classes are: Bard, Rogue, Sorcerer, and Warlock (with Fey pack).
If the rest of this book matches this excerpt, it will turn out to be a hell of a supplement and well worth my wait and excitement!
Think I may roll up a Satyr Bard/Rogue!
