Shadow Fey

Shadow Fey Traits

Shadow fey are a subrace of elf. They enjoy the base elven racial traits, along with the following subrace traits.

Ability Score Increase. Your Charisma score increases by 1.

Alignment. Although they have a malevolent reputation, the shadow fey are not inherently evil. They tend toward chaotic neutral, though every variation exists.

Shadow Fey Weapon Training. You have proficiency with the rapier, shortsword, shortbow, and longbow.

Path of Shadows. When in darkness, dim light, or a shadow large enough to cover your body, you can cast the Misty Step spell. You can use this ability a number of times per day equal to your Charisma modifier (minimum 1), and you regain all expended uses when you finish a long rest. Charisma is your spellcasting ability for this spell.

Sunlight Sensitivity. You have disadvantage on attack rolls and on Wisdom (Perception) checks that rely on sight when you, the target of your attack, or whatever you are trying to perceive is in bright sunlight.

Traveler in Darkness. You have advantage on any Intelligence (Arcana) check to learn about a particular fey road or shadow road and how it functions.

Extra Language. You can speak, read, and write Umbral.
