The Root of the World
The fey nation of Alterrene has the closest connection to the Feywild of any kingdom. Predominantly populated by eladrin and elves, Alterrene is presided over by the young (in relative fey terms) elf Princess Apollopa. Hailing from an anointed family lineage, Apollopa maintains close ties to many nobles of different nations. The kingdom also hosts fey of all stripes such as gnomes, centaurs, satyrs and various plant creatures.
Perhaps the most important connection the kingdom holds is a direct link to the adjacent Feywild kingdom of Highmere. The center of Alterrene—with its spiraling towers and its airy porticoes—is actually a massive and suspiciously barren mountaintop plateau. Through ancient magics and compacts, the kingdom of Highmere appears in the center of Alterrene during twilit moments of dawn, dusk and eclipse. Until recently these moments could stretch for minutes or hours, allowing a thriving trade between the fey and mortal realms. Unfortunately for the commerce of Alterrene the recent arrival of the World Tree has reduced the interaction of Highmere with the mortal realm to the exact moments of twilight, effectively crippling the joint aspects of these sister kingdoms’ economies.
