d100 homes for the wee folk



Thought I better do a token classic fantasy table as my hits dropped below a thousand to yesterday. Since then my net been troubled so im just down to phone tethering.

The wee folk live in tiny natural houses near human villages and rural farms quite often. Some are well hidden or invisible to humans other are blatant. The last kind are best avoided as they are pretty well defended to be so brazen. If they get along with locals and trade they might just be neighbors.

In my game i have some extra classes to coven non humans. Abhumans cover beastmen and elemental folk like rock men and tree men even orc or human barbarians. Changelings covers the more lithe but magical beings who are more overtly supernatural shape shifters like tree spirits or animal spirits, faeries or planar hybrids.

For wee folk I use halflings or gnomes as base model. So a halfling could cover a goblin, humanoid beavers and badgers, moss men and benevolent hedge or barn trolls. Gnomes cover the more magical versions with spells and magical abilities and are slightly smaller again. This has worked well and I should write up some examples or re write these classes with variations.

Anyway this is good for local wee folk homes to place near a village or in a magic forest. In a evil dark elf or haunted forest they are more likely to be utter bastards or openly hate humans. Good creature will help humans especially children, will warn them or protect them of help farm animals. Neutral creature will try to avoid humans but turn nasty if humans disrespect the balance of nature or swear. Evil creature will sadistically torment rob and kill humans.

Im a big fan of moomintrolls and gloranthan trolls and the standard DnD troll is insane immortal cancers sprung from troll chaos folk aeons ago. The smarter trolls could be played as abhuman (rock troll, bridge troll, hill troll, cave troll), halfling (barn or hedge trolls). For more magical and rare trolls changelings are good (arcane trolls, elder trolls) and gnomes make good stove trolls.


So what follows is simple tables to create a wee folk home or encounter plus a larger table with lots of pre created ones. Yes I am introducing more talking animals in my setting.
