Here is another selfmade wording puzzle for you guys. This puzzle is also for a selfmade game and also needs to be challenging. It is easier than the previous one.

You have never seen us
You obviously haven't smelled us
We are very small
But for the smallest atom we are tall
We can't fly
We are very easy to identify
Have been told in many stories
But to be kind is not mandatory
We have brothers in Ireland
Of playing football we are fans

Not sure, but is it possibly a

Leprechaun

You have never seen us

leprechauns are myths, cannot be seen

You obviously haven't smelled us

See above

We are very small But for the smallest atom we are tall

Leprechauns are notably small creatures, but not as small as an atom

We can't fly

Self-explanatory, leprechauns can't fly.

We are very easy to identify

Leprechauns are always small wearing green clothes.

Have been told in many stories

A popular folklore myth

But to be kind is not mandatory

They are not known to be nice

We have brothers in Ireland

Leprechauns are Irish

Of playing football we are fans

Possibly a reference to the Fighting Irish

  • $\begingroup$ @BeastlyGerbil See my edit $\endgroup$ – PartyHatPanda Aug 16 '16 at 16:11
  • $\begingroup$ correct answer dude! you are a Answer-Champion! you showed me that this question seems to be a good choice tho! $\endgroup$ – Snickbrack Aug 16 '16 at 16:24
  • $\begingroup$ I would be wary with the last statement though, depending on how widespread you want your game to be. I am not sure how many people globally know of the Fighting Irish $\endgroup$ – PartyHatPanda Aug 16 '16 at 16:27
  • $\begingroup$ If they know Leprechaun's then they should also know the fighting ones. If not then they should start searching in a pub like the pokemon-girlies... $\endgroup$ – Snickbrack Aug 16 '16 at 16:45

Possibly too abstract but:

Thoughts

You have never seen us

You can't see thoughts

You obviously haven't smelled us

:| ... Obviously

We are very small

Limited to the space of our minds

But for the smallest atom we are tall

Anything compared to an atom is big

We can't fly

No, they can't

We are very easy to identify

You can very easily identify a thought

Have been told in many stories

Not sure but possibly: "I'm having a thought," thought BeastlyGerbil

But to be kind is not mandatory

You can have thoughts which aren't nice

We have brothers in Ireland

Working on it...

Of playing football we are fans

Not sure
