Faeries are known to live in trees, your home (if it
suits them), mushroom groups, underwater systems and
even your garden roots! Known mostly to live in "Burgh's"
or underground dwellings beneath hills and mountains.
They live either solitary and reclusive lives or clan
together to form a "Troop". The latter believed to be
the more willing to help and more friendlier to humans.
Also too are the Faery Islands which appear and disappear
usually when something is needed from the mainlands or
too, to aid sailors on their way.
Some of their favorite plants and herbs are Mistletoe,
Foxglove, Jasmine, Primrose, Cowslip, Tulip, Straw,
Strawberries, Dates and Poinsettias.
Known also, that specific Fey are most active at
specific times and at specific seasons of the year.
At these times, it is best to leave the fruits of
the season or the celebration out for them, just
to keep them around but also as a precautionary act!
As a rule, the more unfriendly ones are most active
at the time of the waning moon and the friendliest
are more active during the Waxing Moon
