d100 Tiny Doors In Trees



Teeny weeny folk live inside trees and sometimes you can see them. Especially when you journey up a magic tree that connects to the great cosmic tree and before long you are in between all worlds. Seeing a tiny door most people will tell you to just go and don't come back and don't even talk about it. Some faerie folk are secretive and willing to silence a troublemaker with a curse or crippling illness or kidnapping. Because children see faerie things better than adults children often end up in faerie forests and most end up serving elves

When in faerie type lands most mortals are called children or son or daughter or boy and girl. Everyone looks puzzled by other suggestions. Witches are common here and don't seem to be a menace here for some reason.
