d100 Things Elves Dislike

Some elfy articles of Elfin is a awesome short story collection by Sylvia Townsend Warner
Elves dislike lots of things so here is a table for things your elf hates most. Act like minor phobias for nuerotic elves to complain about. Perhaps a d6 per elf or one per level. As they age elves get more fussy and obnoxious?

Dislike means a aversion to it greater than most people. They can touch or interact with them but they wince and have limits and looked pained. Some dislikes might grow into phobias or stronger aversions with some elves. Continual exposure might make elves move or do something desperate. Some elves might just destroy what vexes them. Some of these things irritate the membranes between dimensions that elves need to feel connected to fairy land. Otherworldly elves not born in the mortal world might be more likely to react badly to these stimuli.

  1. Haha some great ones on here. Lard and animal fat, unwashed hands touching them, accordians, unrealistic paintings. I'd like to play a miserable elf that dislikes all of these.
