Now, that's a great inspiration. I can just see humans snickering over
the thought of trolls sticking teeth under their pillows... while the
reality is that it's some huge horrible darkness demon. Or some daughter
of Xiola Umbar, or something. No doubt the retribution spirit takes a
hammer to your chompers if you fail to brush enough. Cool!

I'm not a biology whiz, but I vaguely recall something about the upper
layer(s?) of skin, hair, fingernails and teeth being "dead" (but I may be
wrong). Healing restores only the "living" skin/bits, I assume. So is it
thus obvious when someone has had healing -- pinker skin, fingernails
blackened or fallen off, hair fallen out, etc. where healing was applied?
