Fai Chen’s Fantastical Faire is described as a trading opportunity for Adventurers League players. It is also reported that there are opportunities to buy other consumable items but also “companions”:

While he does not sell permanent magic items, he does need to feed his ever expanding family. He makes money by selling consumables and other unique things like property, guild memberships, or a companion from his mini menagerie.

What is the range of companions that have been spotted at Fai Chen’s (i.e. are they all beasts?) and what is their price? Most specifically, does there seem to be a pattern in the costs related to the CR of the companion?


It has been reported that companions are typically for sale at Fai Chen's Fantastical Faire with prices reported ranging from 500gp to 1,000gp.

  • Season 6 had a Tressym for sale.
  • Season 7 reportedly had a custom goat, otter, and crab for sale. Another noted Fai Chen’s recently had a giant three toed sloth.

    \$\begingroup\$ @doppelgreener It shouldn’t be citing hearsay as the person in the post said they saw it themselves. Is Fai Chen’s Faire listed in AL season materials? We have never seen it in them. Our impression was that the Faire varies across conferences and thus can only be determined in person (unless one is an organizer.) Thus, it was assumed our best hope for an answer is from people who have saw items in person (such as described in the link.) \$\endgroup\$ – Praxiteles Mar 14 '18 at 4:13
  • \$\begingroup\$ I see, OK. That changes things. Going by reports might be about the best we can do for that one then after all. \$\endgroup\$ – doppelgreener Mar 14 '18 at 4:21
