Fraerlings by Artsy Nada

Fraerlings, or more commonly known as the Small Folk, are one of the Races of Innworld. They mainly live in Baleros

Physiology[]

Appearance[]

The Fraerlings look just like normal humans, but with the average height of a Human’s hand.

Physical Qualities[]

Strength[]

Adult Fraerlings are strong enough to lift things many times their weight; like tossing a cup, and even lifting it when it’s full. A Level 60 Fraerling [Warrior] can even kill a Griffin. Still their strength isn’t much use when everything else is so big to them.[1]

Light Weight[]

One of the few advantages of them being small was that they didn’t fear the pain of falling. Oh, it could hurt, like if tossing a hamster over a cliff’s edge. Even so, the hamster had a much better chance of surviving that fall than something a hundred times its weight. Thanks to this same principle, they could fall from a height of about 300 feet straight down, without suffering any injuries.[2]

Diet[]

Fraerlings can hold more than their body weight in drink and food; they actually get a bit taller as their bodies stretched to support the extra mass, but alcohol can still kill them.[3]

They also have a fast metabolism, which allows them to sober up faster when they are drunk.[1]

Magical Qualities[]

Fraerlings are able to use magic. Still, while size isn’t everything where magic is concerned, it’s literally too hard for them to weave larger spells, and casting normal Spells like a [Fireball], are actually tiny compered to other races.[1]

Weaknesses[]

Small Size[]

Due to their small size, Fraerlings have a number of disadvantages.

  • Insects, Pests (like rats), and other small animals (like cats), are deadly to them.
  • As stated above, their strength and magic is not of much use to them outside their communities.
  • They are also not that tough as a few stomps are enough to kill even a Lv. 60 Fraerling [Warrior].[1]

Behavior and Culture[]

Most Fraerlings live a reclusive life on Baleros and seldom take part in continental or worldly events, preferring to stay within their small communities and only travel to villages, towns, and cities on the occasionally trip to sell goods or request aid from adventurers. There are a few exceptions, such as Niers Astoragon, the most famous Frearling in the world.[4]

Trivia[]

  • Armor for Fraerlings is more expensive than any [Lord]’s, given that [Blacksmith]'s have a terrible time forging anything so small.[5]
  • Books that are made for Fraerlings are hard to obtain. Not because they are almost twice as expensive as a normal book, since the costs of production were minute, but because a Fraerling [Bookbinder] and [Scribe] has to labor hard to copy texts in minutiae.[6]
  • There is a classic story where some of them live in a house unknown to the owners. This is not real, as it is dangerous, due to them being easily squished unknowingly by the owners.[1]
