The Fae is a magical and wild realm that is home to feykind and all sorts of strange and monstrous creatures. It is like a magical shadow or veil that blankets the wild areas of the world where mortals don’t dwell. Mortals who stray into the Fae find the experience both disorienting and captivating. The Fae is a realm of raw beauty and danger, with lush, overgrown forests, dark glades, and majestic waterfalls. It is both familiar and utterly foreign to mortal travelers, and many who enter never return to tell the story.
It is said that the entire known world was once Fae, before mortals carved out a place for themselves and drove back the shadow.
With each new settlement along the frontier, the veil is pushed farther back. And when a land is abandoned or falls into ruin, travelers to those parts often find familiar paths twisted or gone, and some simply disappear into the mist.
