Prankstar

It's a ball of eerie light, flying around frantically, while occasionally giggling.

Buzzing Mark (Su) Whenever a prankstar deals damage with its jolt, all creatures bearing its buzzing mark also suffer 1d3 points of electric damage.

Jolt (Su) A prankstar can make a melee touch attack that deals 1d3 points of electric damage and leaves a buzzing mark on the target for the next 1d4+1 rounds.

Telekinetic Manipulation (Su) A prankstar can telekinetically manipulate objects as if it had a pair of halfling-sized arms with a 30 feet reach. It can use Sleight Of Hand skill and steal combat maneuver at a distance, gaining +4 racial bonus to the later.

Vanishing Trick (Su) A prankstar can become invisible for 4 rounds as a swift action three times per day.


Prankstars are annoying fey that enjoy making simple pranks on other sapient beings. They steal things, prod humanoids and beasts with their electric jolt, and pretend to be benevolent lantern archons (DC 17 Knowledge (planes) check is required to recognize it's not an actual archon, though noticing individual traits that don't match can grant +1 bonus to the roll per ability missing or not fitting), while sowing minor mischief. While not terribly malicious, they are rather short sighted and can easily cause lasting harm by carelessness or ignorance. Thankfully, they are easily bored and often switch targets.
