North of the Hedge
Just as small Fey creatures (pixies, brownies, sprites) are all commonly called “Fairies,” Fey creatures call most medium sized humanoids from the Relm “Humans.” Elves, Dwarves, even Halflings, Orcs and Dragonborn are all referred to with the pejorative “Human.”
Not many “Humans” enter the Fey, far fewer ever return. Bands of survivors from all races form nomadic tribes centered around their whale-turtles. The “humans” herd and ride the huge beasts, and build shelter on their shells. Some legends tell of towers and even castles built on the backs of large ancient whale-turtles.
