I'm trying to design a campaign based around conflict within the faerie courts, including the Seelie, the Unseelie and the Goblin courts. I'm trying to combine some ideas from a recent Dragonshards article about Dakaani goblinoids as well as goblins in movies like Legend and Labyrinth. My question is how or should I alter the goblins in order to make this fit? I could perhaps give them a smattering of spell-like abilities and DR 5/cold iron, or maybe even Regeneration 2/cold iron for flavor, or maybe they don't need fixing at all and I can just give their society a different color. And if I did change them, how would that alter things like CR and LA?

Also, does anybody know a good source for Fey? The MM has sprites and dryads and nymphs and satyrs, but it doesn't seem like that standard royal faerie type, any suggestions?

Try just adding a level or two of Sorcerer to the goblins.

Cromagh's Guide to Goblinoids

Faeries for Ars Magica, but full of usefull information about classic Fey.

Faeries also looks good.

Fey, kill each other???

I didn't say kill, I said conflict, but something that the goblins could get at east politically mired in.

You haven't been reading Laurel K. Hamilton's Meredith Gentry series by any chance have you? If not those books would give some good material.

I might just have to dig those up then

I know this was posted a while back, but I just had a couple of thoughts:
If you're not generally using outsiders and other planar stuff; you could use Aasimir and Tiefling types for seelie and unseelie fey; or other such planar beings-maybe solars or something similar for the king and queen.
I'd go with DR rather than regeneration, otherwise in a fairy court, where cold iron is probably outlawed, goblins could well take over.
You could use gnomes as a fey race -all their little inate spells seem to lend themselves to that.

Those are some good ideas, thanks!
