Fairy Wing Forest
Welcome to Fairywing Forest! The fae community includes gnomes, pixies, trolls, brownies, leprechauns, fairies, and more. The fae ambassadors, envoys, and emmissarries are gathering here in Fairywing Forest for the annual Fae Coterie Circle Council, which happens to coincide with the human Festival.
The fae representatives will meet in a traditional fairy ring to discuss their concerns, resolve disputes, and plan their celebrations.
All of the fae in Fairywing Forest are friendly to humans. They are using much of their alchemy and spells to allow the humans to see them, to be big enough to chat and play with the humans, and to maintain an energy boundary to protect humans during their Festival from the more cantankerous, mischievous, and invisible fae spirits.
The fae of Fairywing Forest welcome all their visitors, especially those who feel a kinship with them. Come and join the fae as we gambol and play!
