Node C +17 The Smurfs

The year is 1413, In Europe, John and Peewit adventure bravely in the service of their king. 

Generally the world looks normal for 1413.  However there is magic.  It's old, tired and ritualized.

Geograpphically this is Earth, but it plays like a D&D game with a seriously penalty on all the mages. 

Off in a Belgian forest there are Smurfs . These critters are 6 to 8 inches tall, sentient and live forever.  They can be used as fierce accelerators for magic power, which kills them.

Cats love smurfs, often to death.  Consequently Smurfs are not cat people. Nor are dogs their favorites since some dogs will see Smurfs as prey or toys.

The Smurf village is in a deep, dense woods, surrounded by magics that cause hallucinations and disorientation.  

All Smurfs are Fringeworthy, but they lost the gate - Pappa Smurf reveals that he was created at some later time, by a giant cabbage like thing.  Smurfs are good at magic (They level as sorcerors) were intended as Anti-Mellor weapons, however most of the Smurf lore has been lost.

The warp opens into a copse of trees - Difficult to get to and blocked far enough so that the Smufs haven't seen the warp effect.

Going through the gate makes the Fringeworthy the same size as the Smurfs.  going back through the gate and through another portal onto this Earth leaves the Smurfs as normally sized people. 

The Smurfs live in huge terhmelern tree houses that can house dozens of smurfs or fringeworthy.  

The warp is 324 inches from the platform side,  27" across on the Smurf side.  All objects that go through are translated to 1/12th their original size and back.

All other gates function normally.

An uninhabited Earth.  The Smurfs were hard pressed.  their village protected them from the wild life, but not much else did.  Outside their walls is a death trap of wolves and other predators who find Smurfs yummy.

These guys have been found by a scouting mission from the Cygnians from Star Fleet Universe.  Except that many of the major races are missing from this iteration of the Star Fleet Universe.  The Cyngians are puzzled over why so many sentient species just ceased to exist 10,000 years ago.
