| Hiiiii, it me, it Inoni, I'm the new kid on the block and I'm about to lug my garbage bag of ideas into your home and empty it all over the floor~
So! Since I hope to bring a Fae character to the table, I was wondering if it wouldn't be helpful to open up a little discussion about Fae strengths/weaknesses/powers/limitations/etc. There is so much Fae folklore out there—some of it rather contradictory—so I wanted to get some clarification about what's already there and then toss out a few additional thoughts. :3
Allrighty, so when it comes to abilities/strengths, Glamour, Immortality, Magic and Ley Lines all make sense. "Magic" is a bit open-ended, but that may also depend upon the type of Fae in question, yeah? I'd assume a lot of it is Nature-based to some extent (and I may or may not have a list of various flowers and their magical properties lying around somewhere...good for both Fae and witches, methinks!). Also little charms n' curses, nice dreams, nasty dreams, minor memory wipes, etc. Things like that?
As for weaknesses, am definitely familiar with the deleterious effects of Iron (and I've also seen steel?) and the power of True Names, but what is Moonlight Sickness? How does that work? Are Fae not able to be out and about during the light of day without falling apart, or do they need to be outside under the light of the moon every night, or...? Regarding mirrors, I'd also read somewhere about them reflecting a Fae's true form (negating their Glamour), so that'd be something else for them to avoid.
Aaand here's a couple of other thoughts!:
Okayyyy, this next section is all vaguely connected (and mostly inspired by one of my favorite paranormal book series :B), and I'll just straight-up pitch these:
UHHH AND I THINK THAT'S IT FROM ME. 8'D Sorry to kick down the door like this! I just like laying things out ahead of time rather than winging it as I go. Argh, I hope this is useful.
