A grugach is a fey creature of the pasture, and they are deeply attuned to domestic animals. As such, they tend to live in close proximity to herdsmen and shepherds, tending to their animals when the humanoids are away or assisting covertly when they are present. Like many household fey, grugachs can be wildly temperamental, and a grugach that is offended or slighted may take their revenge by tying knots in the animal’s wool, stealing their milk, or simply letting them wander away into the wilds. Most grugachs live solitary, reclusive lives, but they sometimes gather together for company or come into social connection with mortals. Their hooves, horns and animate hair render them somewhat intimidating to many people, and many grugachs have been shunned by society. Some scholars suggest that grugachs are the result of mortals interbreeding with wild fey such as satyrs and korreds, but grugachs themselves scorn this idea. Grugachs advance by character level, and most prefer to take classes that are tied to nature, such as rangers, druids or hunters. Bards are also common—grugachs have a deep appreciation for music, and their haunting melodies are often heard in the fields.
