Pact of the Ancients
The Feywild is the origin of elves, eladrin and gnomes and represents a forest realm parallel to the middle world. The world is incredibly vivid and lush and is populated with all manor of natural faeries and spirits. In deep forested areas permanent portals to the fey wild exist, but these gates sometimes have guardians. The sprawling forest of Arteuria contains many such portals. The Darkthorn Forest contains only one.
