Forbidden Forest Update

Revising these forest encounters Original Here
Mere d40 tables from early days on the blog
First 40 are original 41+ are new
Altered the preamble a bit

Forbidden Forest (Bright Fey Forest)

Humans are not welcome here - non human fey, goblins, elves and magical animals dwell here. Many are good or neutral even the goblins. There is evil here but as part of a balance not for humans to comprehend. Also some sylvan and faerie beings are capricious or think of humans are dumb animals.

Some guests like druids and cults are given permission to be here with documents from a noble or the king like a letter or passport. Some are given passwords, phrases and signs to be able to pass.

The humans have built a great Lodge where unicorn hunters from around the world visit. Unicorn hunting is now illegal but outlaws still hunt them. Wild men here are green fur covered primitives rather than cavemen who are mostly naked or clothe themselves in leaves or furs..
