and Chromatic Dragons
have their own origin stories where they entered the world as nothing but delicate eggs but the origin of Fey Dragons is far more mysterious as no one knows exactly who or what created these mischievous creatures. Long after the Divine Races
were created and the Ancient Fey
chose to make their home in the Wandering Forest
, a simple egg, nothing more than a gemstone wrapped in bronze
, appeared beneath the roots of a tree, the core pulsing with the light of magic. No one knew what the item was or where it came from, so the egg was left beneath the tree until the roots covered the glowing mass.
Centuries passed and those that called the Wandering Forest
home forgot about the mysterious egg. Soon, cracks began to appear in the egg hidden by the roots, spears of light piercing the darkness. Eventually, the egg broke open, revealing a small creature that fully resembled a Mithril Dragon
. Once again, the Ancient Fey
paid no mind, forcing the hatching from under the tree and to a gateway so that the creature would leave. Slowly, the small Dragon shifted to mimic the appearance of the Ancient Fey
, shifting and changing as it saw more people.
More eggs began to appear beneath trees throughout the Wandering Forest
, slowly hatching and releasing these small Dragons into the world. They shifted their appearances, changing their wings and scales, and slowly began playing tricks on those that had ignored them. Using simple magic, they teased and tormented the Ancient Fey
, causing them to be named Fey Dragons for their similarities to the two Divine Races
. The Fey Dragon numbers increased and their want for chaos expanded, eventually driving them to draw mortals into the Wandering Forest
from the mortal realm.
