There’s much resentment against groups like the elves for having more magical powers than the sprites, though the sprites refuse to acknowledge their tendency to fight means their not having a lot of power is actually a good idea.
There’s even more resentment from other groups who have to break up the fights sprites indulge in and/or have to clear up the damage. Sprites also like sex a lot and reproduce a lot. Female sprites out and about attract a lot of interest. Some welcome it, some don’t (guess what is a major cause of the fighting!!!).
Villagers tend to unite in the cause of a decent planning dispute and it’s not been unknown for a local mayor making the wrong decision facing a very unpleasant fate. That’s the problem with living in a magical world. Almost any fate is possible!
Travelling is done via the instant transport spell (but it comes with the risk you and your bits may not rematerialize in the right order or at all!) or using the slower, safer transport trees. The trees appear motionless when viewed from the outside. The magic is in the inside of the tree (a little like the Tardis) and you set your destination by setting abacus beads to get the coordinates you want. Therefore geography is an important subject in the Kingdom’s schools. You have to know where you want to go and what its co-ordinates are.
Sprites can fly a short distance by powering their boots (this is a bit like having a running start anywhere in that it’s fine to get you going but you can’t keep it going forever). Fairies of course have wings but to fly any great distance takes time and a lot of physical and magical stamina so they too tend to use the spell or the trees. The skies can get congested at times. And there’s the risk of crash landing on some unfortunate pedestrian below.
