Tiny spirits of elemental energy, wichtlings are fist-sized globes of softly-glowing light of a colour representative of their element: orange for fire, white for air, blue for water, and green for earth. Curious creatures, they like to travel in flocks and investigate strange things or creatures. Unfortunately, their touch is dangerous to non-elemental beings.

Non-magical weapons deal no damage to a wichtling. They take double damage from their opposing element.

Neat. I'm a big fan of "little creatures" that you can populate dark, untraveled forests with. Perfect for drawing over-curious PCs deep into the woods...

Drawing them in, and then immensely frustrating them as they flit around and brush off most weaponry. Great for annoying beginner adventurers --

And you can send in non-hostile wichtlings, so they won't necessarily hound the party to death ;3
