Constellations are friendly, helpful celestials that guide lost travelers and assist with quests, especially when called upon by clerics and paladins. A constellation appears as multiple pinpoints of light that form a rough outline of an animal, typically a bear, bull, fox or scorpion.
The fox constellation is the most clever of the celestials. It helps adventurers solve difficult riddles, find hidden paths (and even secret doors), and offers insight during negotiations.
While it’s rare that a fox constellation will enter combat, they can defend themselves with a simple bite attack and their innate spellcasting abilities. More often than not, the fox constellation will teleport away from trouble, preferring to leave the action to those more capable.

The fox constellation will be included as a Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition entry in a new book I’m working on for DMsguild.com titled, simply, CR 1/8.
It will be available for free download and reading until the book is published (probably by the end of this week).
