Pixie Class for B/X Essentials


Pixie
Requirements: Minimum DEX 9
Prime Requisite: DEX and INT
Hit Dice: 1d4
Maximum Level: 8
Allowed Armor: None 
Allowed Weapons: Small sized weapons (see below)
Languages: Alignment language, 
Common, dwarvish, gnome, goblin, kobold 

Pixies are small of stature, less than 2’ tall and can fly.

Prime Requisites: A pixie must have at least 13 in both prime requisites in order to get the +5% bonus to experience. A pixie with an DEX of at least 16 and a INT of at least 13 receives a +10% XP bonus.

Abilities 
Combat: Pixies may use any weapon which is appropriate to their stature and any weapon they choose does only does 1d4 damage.
Defensive Bonus: Because they are so small, pixies have a lower Armour Class (-4 bonus) when attacked by creatures great- er than human sized. 
Flight: Pixies can fly at 120’ (40’).
Initiative Bonus (optional rule): If using the optional rule for individual initiative (see Basic Combat Procedure in B/X Essentials: Core Rules, p22), pixies get a bonus of +2 to initiative rolls. 
Thief Skills: Pixies have the following skills, which improve as the character gains levels (see the chart opposite). Note that dice rolls for these abilities are usually made by the referee, because a pixie is not always aware that he or she has failed! 
Hide in Shadows: A pixie will always think he or she is successful in this skill and will not know otherwise until others react to his or her presence. A pixie must remain motionless when hiding.
• Move Silently: When successful, others will not hear the movements of a pixie. However, the pixie always thinks he or she is moving silently and will only know otherwise by others’ reaction.
