Tools, tables and resources for running adventures in forest and the Feywild.

Starting Points - Forest and Feywild
Forest adventures can cover ancient heartlands of proud trees, enchanted woodland protected by druids and sinister woods infested with spiders.
Feywild adventures encompass stories in any faerie realm, place of dreams and those involved with the fey, seelie and unseelie.

Forest and Fey Creatures
"This forest-dwelling fairy is female with brown eyes, a tanned complexion, and curly golden-blond hair cut short. She is very tall and is somewhat thin. She wears a pair of mid-length trousers, a corset, and a pair of pointed boots. She also wears a golden ring and a flower hat. She tends to be forgetful and is fairly talkative."

Foliage and Trees
"The forest was large, wet, and rich. Its canopy was dominated by yew, magnolia, and willow, who left just enough light for a mosaic of ferns to monopolize the crunchy layer of leaves below. Bundled tree limbs hung from a couple of trees, and a variety of flowers, which blossomed brightly, added more life in the otherwise monotone forest grounds. A variety of noises, belonging mostly to bird songs, brightened up the forest, and were in harmony with the swaying of tree tops in the wind."
from Forest Descriptions on Fantasy Name Generators.
For maps with a good amount of tree try gozzy's wilderness maps, which have a filter for the amount of foliage shown
