Any were creature but as a typical girl gamer I find playing a really ugly character I bit of a bugger bear so fair folk would be cool (NOT fairies though they are for comedy value only).
I love to play a good face though Ethan Hunt as nothing on me I can talk the talk and I'm kinda practicing the walk
Heh, I think that properly played faeries are anything but
funny, save when they choose to be. People were afraid of the Good Folk, who were often murtherous and always unpredictable. Powries (redcaps) were every bit as much a part of faerie tales as sprites. Pouks and shellycoats would drown people for fun, and the high court of the fey would give a human soul over to the Devil every seven years as his tithe.
I would kind of like to see some Slavic fantasy races some time, Domovoi and Leszi, Vodonoi, and Grandfather Drowner... all fit the template for fey, but only the Domovoi makes a good house guest.
The Auld Grump, we dare no' go a-hunting, for fear of little men....
