Magical Moss of the Wilderrun
Sprite Moss, also referred to as Fey Moss or by other names, is a common ground cover found near the banks of the Wilderrun River and throughout other areas of the Fairy King's Wood. Once a common moss, this moss was changed by the flow of magic through the area and became something that only thrives in this specific area. Something about the plant is magical, but Scholars have yet to determine what exactly makes this moss so special.
The Fairy King's Wood has a reputation for heavy fey magic influencing everything, from the landscape and the water to the flora and fauna that call the area home. Those creatures and plants closer to instances of heavy magic or near the entrances to the Wandering Forest are affected the most, changing to reflect the fanciful magic that spills from one realm into this one. This is most frequently obvious near the Veins of the North that flow through or near the boundaries of the Fairy King's Wood, with the banks of the Wilderrun being the most affected.
Moss, fungi, and other ground-covering plants exist in abundance along the banks of the Wilderrun, but no flora is more plentiful than the Sprite Moss that blankets the ground. This carpet-like moss with tiny buds that shoot into the air grants the area a soft and quiet atmosphere, quieting the raging water that flows nearby. While having nothing to do with sprites or other fey creatures, this moss thrives in the wet climate, covering any surface it can stick to.
This moss is often known for the small sprite-like mushrooms and blooms that appear from the moss cover, a delicacy amongst some races. The Fairies and others enjoy using the odd little blooms to garnish their food or add a bit of whimsy to the most unsuspecting of places.
