    Default Leprechauns

    So with St. Patricks day coming up I hope to run a special game on saterday with my friends. I am looking for stats on a Leprechaun but for some reason Dungeons and Dragons doesn't have one. After reasearching Leprechauns I realize that they would be CN and relivitly powerful in illusion magic. They must also be incredibly difficult to catch. Do any of you know where i can find stats or perhaps we want to make stats for one.

    Start with one of the fairy creatures (a grick maybe?), slap on some levels of wizard/illusionist/enchanter, or give them spell-like abilities according to the legends (teleportation, gate - to their pot-o-gold only, invisibility, something to improve their grapple checks, etc. . . )
    That's where I'd start at least.

    Try a "D20 Leprechaun" search. I found one at www.d20zines.com/v7/node/979 Leyline: The Leparechaun by Scott Moore posted on the web on 3/15 based on the 1977 AD&D MM and the 2E Monstrous Manual even including the old limited wishes and fondness/weakness for wine.

    I think you mean grig. A grick is an aberration, a beaked, tentacled snake-like creature.

    For some reason the search function isn't working at d20zines so I amended the link in my earlier post to take you directly to the leprchaun post.

    And grigs don't work either, since they're basically half-cricket.

    I'd always thought of leprechauns as a bit evil. Unless you're looking at Disney's Darby O'gill and the Little People. Traditionally, Leprechauns are something malicious, though.

    You could also try some MM Fey like Pixies or something (sorry but I've never really looked at Fey much so names may be wrong) and just increase their size.

    American meself, but roughly %80 of my heritage is from Ireland. Do remember that drink doesn't make Leprechauns more lazy and sloppy, it in fact makes them more spastic and dangerous. And they have a base land speed and burrow speed of 50ft, 60 when drunk. And, despite the size, their fisticuffs hit like the potato famine! I make a (chamber-but they don't tell you that-)pot of 1000gp appear as if teleported if you can pin it, but good luck what with the speediness (I also sometimes treat them as having grease as a spell-like ability).

    Leprechauns are traditionally mischievous, but not actually malicious, and most of their mischief is reserved for those who try to take their gold. For example, a man (either a farmer or a bandit) catches a leprechaun and finds where the gold is buried, in a field of ragwort. He doesn't have a shovel, so he ties his red garter to a sprig of ragwort. But when he returns, all the ragwort in the field is sporting red garters. That sort of thing.

    Clurichauns are a bit different. Cousins to the leprechauns (or the night form of the leprechaun, depending on the story), they're surly drunks. Treat them well, and they'll guard your wine cellar. Treat them poorly, and they'll make life hell for you (and drink all of your liquor).

    Still, even they're not really evil. Chaotic neutral at worst.

    You know, you're actually right, just let em be a gnome and give 'em some levels in either sorcerer or wizard, pump their illusion, and give em a pot of gold and a natural bonus on grapple checks when trying to escape the grapple.
