I like it, Pieh. I've introduced Faerie into my fantasy campaign and can use fae-created stuff for the PCs to find. I see the Fae as a dying race, and things that create more fae would be very useful to them.
Yeah, she does sound like a wild magic, chameleon mage that soaks up the magic around her and makes it hers, until the next bit of magic comes along. She would definitely be fae-touched pretty soon, much too interesting to leave alone!
Orcish currency is derived from glass beads. The art of glassworking is well beyond them, but perhaps the orcs have something of value to the civilized races, such as animal pelts, and well made axes, and bows. The humans trade beads for the goods, and the orcs will trade the beads amongst themselves as a form of their own currency. Perhaps they value blood red beads above all others, or animistic orcs favor beads in the colors of their gods.
Inspired by Indian trade beads, some of which could be quite ornate and beautiful. Most North American Indian beads were made in Italy. Surprise!
