Phase sprites are rare creatures. Small twigoids, only 2 feet tall, they live lonely lives. Phase sprites are tricksters with a passion for magical artifacts and are in fact able to sense the presence of magic up to a quarter mile away. They frequent little-travelled roads and forests surrounding sources of magical items with the intend to steal any that pass their way. As a result, they will often have a small collection of such objects hidden away.

They can teleport at will up to 30 feet three time a day and use this ability to get in and out of travelers’ camps undetected. They will also use this power to flee 

They are camouflaged and stealthy and thus have a 75% chance of approaching undetected and surpise on 1-3. In combat, phase sprites wield special rapiers of their own make that deal 2d3+1 damage. These rapiers are a mystery to smiths and mages alike as to their origin and power. Such a rapier, wielded as a dagger by larger creatures, can sell for up to 5000 gp given a buyer of sufficient wealth or interest in trinkets. 500 gp is a more normal price for one of these given marginally wealthy buyers or a single very wealthy buyer.

Made first as one of the early Mind Weave monsters, remade for 5e, and now arriving to AD&D as to be another mischief option in Moedre.
