A Glimpse on the Life of a Satyr

Satyrs revolve their lives on nothing but simple desires such as exploring the wonders of the world and experiencing any pleasure it has to offer. Most races find the Satyrs irritating and odd, but this doesn’t stop them from doing things they like.

Satyrs can be described as a hybrid combination of a humanoid and a goat. Their stature and appearance are very similar to humans. They walk with two legs, hold things with their hands, have complete digits, and have human facial features. What distinguishes them is their goatlike horns on their head, pointed pair of ears, and furred lower bodies. Their feet are robust hooves, and their thigh and legs are covered with furs down to their hooves.

Satyrs believe that people around the world are too serious. People are always bounded by laws and too many rules. Satyrs will tend to joke about other people for the sake of entertaining themselves. They believe that life is more than what people see it. It should be experienced and enjoyed with all their senses. They see the world as a box of joy, and they want to explore everything it contains. For the Satyrs, meeting life with all their senses greatly honors the gods— well, aside from the fact enjoying life feels really good.

Humans find the Satyrs as rowdy and raucous. Whenever there’s a Satyr in an area, one expects them to have a great time indulging in revelry and debauchery. Revelry is a way of life for the Satyrs and revelry does not always pertain to festivities and drinking. It may be enjoyment from the sound of birds, a nice breeze, the smell of a newly baked pie, calming seas, or a nice view when the sunsets. These things are more valuable than any treasure or glory.

Some people worry about the eccentric nature of the Satyrs and concern themselves on wondering why the Satyrs behave like this. However, Satyrs are just Satyrs and that’s just simply the way they are.

Below is the summary of Satyr’s racial traits.

Satyr Racial Traits

Ability Score Increase

Satyr’s outgoing and fun nature gives them a bonus +2 in their Charisma score. Their quick and powerful hooves add a bonus +1 to their Dexterity.


Satyrs can mature and increase in age at almost the same rate as humans.


Satyrs find laws and order disruptive for their revelry. Most of them are harmless and aligned to good, while some have tendencies to cause dismay and disturbance.


Medium-sized. Satyr’s height only ranges from 5 feet to 6 feet and generally slender.

A simple formula below can be used by the players to randomly determine the height and weight of their Satyr character:

Size Modifier = 2d8

Height = 4 feet + 8 inches + Size Modifier result in inches

Weight in pounds = 100 + (2d4 x Size Modifier result)


A Satyr’s base walking speed is 35 feet.


Satyr’s creature type is considered as Fey instead of a humanoid.

Satyrs are resistant to magic. They have an advantage in saving throws against spells and other magical effects.

Mirthful Leaps

Satyr’s powerful hooves are proven to be useful for leaping, aside from running. When a Satyr makes a long or high jump, they can roll a d8 and add the result to the number of feet they can cover by the jump, even when making a standing jump. The extra distance costs movement as normal.


Satyrs have proficiency in Performance and Persuasion skills. They also have proficiency with one musical instrument of their choice with this trait.


Satyrs can speak, read, and write in the Common and Sylvan language.

Satyr Names
