My dwarves are starting a war with other inhabitants of Fairy. They have gone to Earth to seek a weapon. They can't import any weapon with iron/ steel. They find toy water pistols and wish to load them up with poisoned water of some sort. I am thinking not to kill but to render inactive. Spray a mist that causes sleep?

My question is what poison would you suggest? And what else could it do? Or can you think of another no-iron weapon that dwarves could use to send fairies to sleep?

    $\begingroup$ Welcome to WorldBuilding.SE! At the moment, I feel like this question is too broad - we can't possibly tell you what would be poisonous to your fairies because we don't know anything about their biology. Would they be harmed by the same substances as humans? $\endgroup$ – F1Krazy May 14 '18 at 13:24
