Mysterious warriors that drink deeply in the mysticism of feykind to access unbelievable powers, feywalkers flit around the battlefield in a terrifying evasive barrage that baffles their foes as they wage war alongside friends drawn from nature. Whether inspired by a chance meeting with the otherworldly folk or through the providence of chaos, only one thing holds true for these strange adventurers—they are free spirits to their core.

Tasting Chaos

Rumors among feywalkers claim that no two find this path in quite the same way, their origins wide and varied. Diverse as their origins may be, these warriors are all at home in the wilderness, as wieldy with intrigue as they are a blade, and savage fighters not to be underestimated. Despite their irreverence, feywalkers can be powerful allies to those who earn their trust and relied upon to achieve their goals (though how exactly they might do that is rarely as one expects).

Unpredictable Adventurers Feywalkers are shackled to nothing more than belief and desire, prone to a whimsy that some serious combatants find frustrating and difficult to comprehend. This makes their actions extremely difficult to predict—with no reliance on rhyme or reason, there is no telling from which direction or even how a feywalker will strike next. A prevailing tendency towards entropy make the nature-bound warriors less prone to taking sides in such broad terms as good and evil, but when a feywalker chooses to champion one of this restricted moral understanding’s didactic positions their accomplishments are legendary.

Creating a Feywalker

The first thing to decide when making a feywalker is how your character came to this chaotic path: were they approached by a fey, drawn to it through dreams, randomly chosen by the powers behind nature, or taught it through a more obscure means? What makes them so anarchic? What inspired them to embrace their wild side? Do they favor animals, plants, or an indulgence in nature that changes their fancy on any given day? Are they aloof and mysterious or brazen in their actions, displaying their deeds for all to see? What role do they have in the natural cycle of life—does their presence forebode chaotic malevolence or benign liberty?

Variant Class Feature: Alignment

Feywalkers cannot be of Lawful alignment. If your group uses alignment, a Feywalker whose alignment becomes Lawful cannot level in this class again until their alignment changes from Lawful.


You must have a Charisma of 13 to multiclass into or out of this class.

Class Abilities


Beginning at 1st level, you know how to speak, read, and write Sylvan. Additionally, you can take an action to grant a number of creatures equal to your proficiency bonus the ability to understand Sylvan. Creatures do not need to be re-taught Sylvan but teaching any more creatures than your maximum causes previous creatures to forget the language. You cannot use this feature again until you complete a long rest.

Primal Sphere

Also at 1st level, you bind your soul to feykind and choose whether to be more acclimated to beasts, plants, or primal chaos. At 5th level and again at 10th and 20th level, you gain an ability granted by your Primal Sphere.


Starting at 2nd level, you can draw upon the power of the Feywild to exploit the chaotic connections of reality, folding space and stepping between it. As part of your movement, you can teleport to an unoccupied space you can see that is within 5 feet times your feywalker level. After using this ability a number of times equal to your proficiency bonus you require a short rest. You cannot Feystep while blinded, grappled, prone, restrained, or stunned.


Beginning at 2nd level, you can touch a creature as a bonus action to magically know the creature’s current emotional state. If the target fails a Charisma saving throw against a DC equal to 8 + your proficiency bonus + your Charisma modifier, you also know the creature’s alignment. Celestials, fiends, and undead automatically fail the saving throw.

Fey Companion

At 3rd level, your Primal Sphere grants you a Fey Companion willing to fight alongside you. You can recall a dead fey companion from the Feywild at the end of a log rest. What sort of fey companion you get is decided by your primal sphere.

Your Fey Companion is of the fey type, and gains a bonus to its Armor Class, attack rolls, damage rolls, and any saving throws and skills it has proficiency in equal to your proficiency bonus. Your companion’s maximum hit points equal its normal maximum or four times your feywalker level (whichever is higher). Your Fey Companion may also make use of your Feystep ability by expending one of your uses.

By spending a bonus action you can verbally command your Fey Companion to take the Attack, Dash, Disengage, or Help action. If you do not command your fey companion, it takes the Dodge action and moves to avoid attacks. When you are incapacitated, your fey companion can take any action in order to protect you. When you have multiple Fey Companions, you may spend an action telling all of them different commands or a bonus action to give the same command to all of them.

Ability Score Improvement

When you reach 4th level, and again at 8th, 12th, 16th, and 19th level, you can increase one ability score of your choice by 2, or you can increase two ability scores of your choice by 1. As normal, you can’t increase an ability score above 20 using this feature.

Fey Nature

Beginning at 5th level, you are able to breathe both air and water and you gain darkvision 60 feet. If you already have darkvision its range increases by 30 feet. In addition, you gain immunity to the charmed condition and you may use your Feytouch ability to grant a creature with the charmed condition a new saving throw against whatever effect caused it to gain the charmed condition.

Fey Charm

Starting at 6th level, you are able to enchant other creatures with just a glance. You target one humanoid (or the same type of creature as your Fey Companion) that you can see within 30 feet. If the target can see you, it must succeed on a Wisdom saving throw against a DC equal to 8 + your proficiency bonus + Charisma or be magically charmed. The charmed creature regards you as a trusted friend to be heeded and protected. Although the target isn’t under your control, it takes your requests or actions in the most favorable way it can. Each time your or your allies do anything harmful to the target, it can repeat the saving throw, ending the effect on itself on a success. Otherwise, the effect lasts 24 hours or until you die, are on a different plane of existence from the target, or end the effect as a bonus action. If a target’s saving throw is successful, the target is immune to your Fey Charm for the next 24 hours. You can affect no more targets with this ability than your proficiency bonus.

At 14th level you can attack twice and command your fey companion to make a single attack.

At 20th level you can attack twice and to command all of your fey companions to take the Attack action.


At 7th level, you can spend your action attempting to take over the mind of a creature you have charmed with your Fey Charm ability. You must be able to see the charmed creature and it must be within 30 feet. The creature receives a Charisma saving throw against a DC equal to 8 + your proficiency bonus + your Charisma modifier. On a failed save, your body becomes listless (gaining the incapacitated condition) and your mind controls the body of the charmed creature. The charmed creature’s mind goes dark and it has no memory of the actions you take with its body, which remains under your control until you end the effect, it travels to another plane of existence, or it succeeds on a new Charisma saving throw triggered by taking damage. You may use this ability for a number of minutes equal to your Feywalker level before requiring a long rest.

Certain Feywalkers are attuned to terrains other than forest, such as field, mountain, sea, or coast (within 100 feet of the waterline). This affects the Feydash and Fay Stride abilities.

Fey Stride

At 14th level, you may spend 10 minutes performing a ritual that teleports (as the spell) you and a number of willing creatures equal to double your proficiency bonus from one forest to another forest. Once you have used this feature, you cannot use it again until one week has passed.
