Guild Info

Little people's league is a loose coalition of communities of brownies, gnomes, halflings, leprechauns, mold men, spell weavers and avans. One thing they have in common is that they are all small people in the world of giants. This common 'enemy' has made them band together and work as united force against bigger threats. This communal unity has made them extremely efficient and effective at tackling different tasks and foes despite their natural disadvantage.



Guild is located at the inn of Village of Highhill.

Bear the communal cacophony:
Cost: 1
Little people tend to make their presence known by the volume of sound they
make because they can't use their size to so. This makes their communities
to be cacophony of sounds and when there is magic also involved it will
drive a normal man insane if they have to stay there for more than couple
of hours. Little people either leave their community and become wanderers

Champion of the little people:
Cost: 2

Cost: 1

it makes their possessions less hindering for magic use.
Effects: Allows wielding all weapons while spellcasting.

but the kins-oath caregivers are the ones who actually administer the

takes their own life. They are highly venerated in the communities because
of this.

saved can be empowering, literally.
Effects: Increases your spell damage according to your bank balance. 
Not the face!:
Cost: 1

Cost: 1

more than gnomes and leprechauns.
Effects: Increases your carrying capacity.
Pip-squeak greatheart:
Cost: 2
Selection of weapons that small reason can lift and wield are usually
fairly limited and one of the reasons why so many of them have devoted
their lives for magic instead. Certain individuals on the other hand have
dedicated their lives to use weapons that are normally wielded by bigger

sentinels are also trained to spot magical threats.
Effects: Allows you to see your opponent's spellcasting. 
Small and innocent:
Cost: 1

person and stole those valuables.

can make really ugly damage really fast when you slash your opponents leg
tendons into shred and then proceed to stab them repeatedly into the chest
while they lie helplessly on the ground. They also tend to be just the
right size for them because they do not have the necessary weight behind
their hits to be that effective with bludgeoning weapons and their spears
tend to be size of a tooth pick.
Effects: Bonus melee damage when using swords.
Undergrowth knight:
Cost: 1
Knights are a force to be reckoned with on the battle field. But if you are
a foot high and riding a dog you might be just a tad less impressive. Small
size on the other hand gives you a great advantage of being able to ride to
places where bigger mounts and people can't. Small mounts are minotaur
lizard, graemorian white tiger, wolf, riding dog, goat, mule, pony, fire
lizard, giant spider, giant beetle and boar.

stealing dragon's treasure or throwing a ring to a volcano they return back
