This glowing golden starshape is actually a living creature. It even has eyes on it. Unfortunately touching it does not grant you invincibility.
The singstar is an alien fey which resembles a somewhat metallic looking star with black eyespots on one side. It floats and spins on its own, constantly emitting a lyrical but wordless song from its body. They are benevolent fey and one of the beings known as "Holiday Spirits", one of several fey which were produced as a result of widespread holiday use. This particular holiday spirit is associated with Christmas. They wish to help everyone in the world, as impossible as that seems.
Singstars do not speak but do "sing" often, songs made out of nonsense words and sounds. They are effectively animals to the fey, but they are entertaining and helpful and sometimes kept as pets. It's uncertain what they eat, but many suspect they feed off emotion, specifically joy and contentment, in minute amounts.
Singstars can't fight, but they can pacify and they have a dog-like desire to help those they consider friends. They're quite brave, but perhaps this gets them in more trouble than it is worth.
Sing (Su): Singstars are named for the singing they perform, and their songs have a supernatural edge to them. They may sing at will, choosing from one of three different songs. Each song effects all targets in a 20 ft radius centered on the singstar. It lasts for as long as the singstar concentrates (a standard action).
- Fortune: One ally creature in the area which hears the song gain the effect of guidance.
- Morale: Any negative emotion effects (such as crushing despair) on allies have their penalty reduced by 1 as long as they hear this song.
- Wonder: A singstar can fascinate like a bard of its level, though a successful save renders creatures immune for 24 hours.
Singstars may be used as familiars, in which case it has the alignment of its owner. Singstars give +3 on Perform checks.
