    Well, it seems that life has deposited me here, yet again. Hopefully this time I get to stay a while, as I intend on revising some old homebrew.

    I came here from the PEACH exchange thread.

    Looking this over, the big issue I see isn't that it's overpowered (though it pretty much is- 6+ high power abilities), but that it's extremely unfocused- you essentially grabbed an ability from every fae you wanted to represent, and shoved them all in one bloodline. That doesn't really work out, for two reasons- one, because a bloodline is generally about having one ancestor who you have the ability of, not multiple, and two, because the result is extremely unfocused.

    I would personally cut literally all of the special abilities and replace them with thematically focused abilities.

    Usefully, there's a guy, don't see him around anymore, who did a ton of bloodlines to pull from, and there's one we can take abilities from pretty easily, then rebalance from there if there are particular abilities we want to keep.

    So, for the Major bloodline, we have
    L2: One first level spell, 1/day.
    L4: A zeroth level spell, 1/day. It is a little out of order, I guess?
    6: A 2nd level spell, 2/day.
    8: Saving throw bonus against... let's say, illusions. +1.
    10: 1st level spell is now 2/day, 3rd level spell 1/day.
    12: Appropriate feat- perhaps Fey Heritage? Another feat if you already had it. Could also put Hide in Plain Sight here.
    14: 4th level spell 1/day, 2nd level spell now 2/day
    16: Saving throw bonus up to +2.
    18: 5th level spell 1/day, 3rd level spell now 2/day, 1st level spell now 3/day.
    20: Unique ability! I suggest Feign Enchantment, it feels appropriate (immunity to enchantments is pretty good!)

    My suggestions for spells:
    0-level: Presdigitation.
    1st level: Disguise self.
    2nd level: Minor image, Invisibility, or Tasha's Hideous Laughter.
    3rd level: Speak with Plants.
    4th level: G. Invisibility, Hallucinatory Terrain, or Charm Monster.
    5th level: Seeming.

    My one piece of homebrew: The Shaman. A Druid replacement with more powerlevel control.
    The bargain bin- malfunctioning, missing, and broken magic items.
    Spirit Barbarian: The Barbarian, with heavy elements from the Shaman. Complete up to level 17.
    The Priest: A cleric reword which ran out of steam. Still a fun prestige class suitable for E6.
    The Coward: Not every hero can fight.

    Hehe, yes believe it or not Welknair's were inspiration for mine and I was worried that it was too unfocused as you said... but I am not sure whether I like just giving them a bunch of spell likes... Hmm, will think about this more ovr the weekend... This ended up being more growing towards fey then fey descended
