Bea'chu Was quick to arrive in the library and threw herself into fae lore. Going so far as to speak to mages and  hunters of fae around Wombrie.

There is so much conflicting information and old wives tales around this subject it is hard to know what is true. There at a few things, thought, that seem common to almost all you read.

  • Don't accept a gift from the fey.
  • Don't consume the food or drink of the Feywild.
  • Never dance with a fairy.
  • Never tell a fairy your full name.
  • Never stray from a path in the Feywild.
  • Never give a fairy clothing
  • Don't forget your manners, but never say "thank you"
  • Always keep your word.
  • Don't repay more than you borrowed.

There are negative consequences for disobeying these rules around fairies but again, what might happen does not seem to be somethign any of the books can agree on. Such things as  "time moves very quickly the more you break the rules", "you become a fairy's slave", "become hoplessly lost in their land" right up to "One you leave, you can never again feel happy untill you return"
"People who have no hope are easy to control"

Copying what she can, she also tries to find of laws or rules the seelie and unseelie must follow when dealing with people. In this regard she even goes so far as to ask the Wenebrie  druids in person and even try to talk to fae in the woods carefully.

There does not seem to be any consistency here other than the inconsistencies of the fey and their 'laws'
"People who have no hope are easy to control"
