Field Guide to the Races of Faerie

This is a rough guide, intended for first year students. We will begin with the humanoid races. The designations given are deliberately general; more exact descriptions will be studied in later classes.

Sprite: 12 in <
Pictsie: 12 in <
Hob : 18 in - 3 ft.
Hobgoblin : 18 in - 3 ft.
Dwarf : 3 - 5 ft.
Goblin : 3 - 6 ft.
Man : 5 - 7 ft.
Elf : 5 - 7 ft.
Ogre: 7 - 9 ft.
Giant : 9 - 18 ft.

In my kimuro journal, I write a series of updates, or reports, originating from a neighbourhood which borders on Faerie, in the person of the keeper of a dragon hatchery called Na Gurnaidh. This past summer, I wrote of the visit from several young people who were planning to attend a sgoil dubh - a school for magic. I often write of Arthur Spiderwick as a member of the establishment and have mentioned before that he teaches a class or two at the Academy of Magic. I imagine that the above is a handout for the first lesson in the first-year class of that course.
