A room without a window or chimney and a well made door might as well be a prison cell for you.
Could you actually just fit under[/b] the door?
A barn door, sure. Not a well made door. You know those that aren't drafty or easily bypassed, that you would find in any half decent inn, merchant house, or secure location. Not every door has 2+ inch gaps or is made out of ill fitting warped wooden planks.
Diminutive is still rat sized, and Atomie stand a foot tall and thus are much BIGGER than a rat. Even at "fine" for a "young" one you are looking at least 6-9 inches tall, you aren't as small as you may think (ignoring the fact you might not even be smaller as fey don't necessarily breed and age like most mortal creatures and are "created" 'as is' because the GM already OK'd the idea).
OT a little bit, but I kinda laughed when I looked up the strength scoreStrength Attribute description: 2 wrote:Needs help to stand, can be knocked over by strong breezes
I figured I wouldn't be standing when trying to get under a door, I would think a crawling fine creature might be able to get under a lot of standard doors (maybe not all, but a decent amount).
That said, point made. I will be focusing on getting things to pump the STR attribute immediately.
Unfortunately that is a perception based on movies and the like where it is helpful to explain or create drama/tension. Trying to squeeze a 9" tall humanoid with wings through a three quarter to half inch gap isn't going to work well. They just aren't designed for it. Hell even something like a rat probably couldn't do it and would have to chew through the corner of the door to make make a large enough gap for it to manage.
Think of it this way, if humans had to actually cope with intelligent tiny creatures do you think doors would ever have gaps? If your GM is willing to let you play this type of character you better believe they will happily play on your false assumptions as well ;)
That all being said, the greater hat of disguise mentioned above will probably need to be a "must have" item. And the 2 Str will be a killer. .75 light/1.62 medium loads. Even with equipment being lighter for smaller size, you will barely be able to carry anything besides clothes. And medium encumbrance means a maximum Dex mod of +3, -3 to skill checks and reduced speed.
