It does require some editing, but the idea of the swarm of little nuisences has great appeal.
The creation of skeletons from cloth and gemstones does seem rather convinient (perhaps they were able to find an ancient pixie burial ground and animated those instead of human-sized corpses. Or maybe assembled the dimunitive skeletons from cat/chicken bones) but I do like the concept of the small size being due to contractors cutting corners.
See, I'm rambling too. In short (pun intended) I think this is a good sub which needs editing. Go to Comment
