Feywild Encounters

The Feywild is a realm of eternal twilight, a spectacular reflection of the Material Plane. It brings visions of sparkling faerie lights, idyllic forest glades, sinister black bogs and skull-like mountains. Encounters could take place at a bridge of vines, a tor topped with crystal spires or a shimmering pool that attracts fireflies.

Home of the fey courts, there are legends of mortals being lost in the feywild for years, centuries or forever. They are home to proud seelie sprites, cunning unseelie satyrs, scheming hags and hungry fomorians.

There is a 5e Feywild random encounter generator at ChaosGen. A pdf of these and other Feywild tables is at the DM's Guild as Feywild Encounters
