A fantasy tabletop roleplaying game of epic-sized adventures for faery-sized heroes.
LoreFolke is a fantasy tabletop role-playing game (TTRPG) in which players take the roles of faery-sized heroes in an oversized forest realm.

- unique weapons, armour and magic items;
- special rules for moving, jumping and falling as tiny adventurers;
- an easy-to-learn d20-based system;
- a lore rich world to explore;
- and lots more!
Akitsu bear the closest resemblance to the winged faeries described in the folktales of the “giants” living beyond Faya’s borders.
They have large insectile eyes and antennae like a moth’s, two pairs of wings – not dissimilar to a dragonfly’s – sprouting from between their shoulder blades; and a touch of magic coursing through their souls.
Inherent Bonus: A spark of magic animates Akitsu spirits, granting them a +1 bonus to Soulforce.
These elfin beings are known for their artistry, lore-keeping and regal traditions. They view their civilization as an ideal to which all beings should aspire – an attitude that occasionally comes off as prideful.
Inherent Bonus: As especially clever and inquisitive beings, Elves have a +1 bonus to Intellect.
Like a mote of fire birthed from flame, Embers exist only briefly, by cosmic standards — just long enough to fulfil their purpose.
Inherent Bonus: The enigmatic essence of their otherworldly origins grants Embers a +1 bonus to Presence.
Jin are patient and affable, with a love of revelry and storytelling. If you prove yourself a friend to these gentle giants, you are a friend for life. To their enemies, on the other hand, Jin are fearsome indeed.
Inherent Bonus: Their large size, in addition to their strength and toughness, grant Jin a +1 bonus to Physique
Besides their love of forbidden treasure, Mysk crave the fame earned by their derring-do.
Inherent Bonus: Mysk are naturally agile, endowing them with a +1 bonus to Agility.
Neptin are known to be patient and contemplative, with a deep reverence for the forest realm of Faya and the ancient entity who created it.
Inherent Bonus: Neptin are in tune with their surroundings, granting them a +1 bonus to Intuition.
Faya, Land of the Lorefolke
Greenhaven is the heartland of Faya, and home to the Elves, who craft their elaborate dwellings and halls in the branches of the greatwood trees, interconnected by terraces.
Thüm is the ancestral homeland of the Jin, where the forest gives way to dry rocky scrub land and more than a few precious stone deposits. Six Jin tribes reside there.
Nysa is primarily dark cedar and evergreen forest. The Mysk make their homes here in elaborate burrows and tunnels lavishly decorated with their treasures.
Shadowvale is home to giant humanoid plant beings called the Laikindi, whose self-appointed role is to guard the breach in the veil between Faya and the outside world.
The Emerald Reach is a broad leaf forest bathed in the mystical light of the sun shining through the emerald coloured canopy, and from whence the winged Akitsu hail.
Illyum is a sombre tract of marshy lowlands crisscrossed by rivers and creeks. It is home to the amphibous Neptin people, who revere Faya’s ancient and mysterious creator.
The Everrot Boglands is a stagnant tract of swamps and rotting wood where few things of natural origin grow. It is inhabited by malevolent Fiends of the Nether Realm.
The Nether Veil is the barrier between Faya and the Nether Realm, a shadowy mirror world where chaos demons reign and no mortal mind can survive for long.
