The Feywild, also known as the plane of Faerie, exists as an “echo” of the Prime Material Plane. It is from here that the fey originate, giving the Feywild its name, and it is also a place of unusually potent magic.
As a parallel plane to the Prime, the Feywild’s geography is similar, though not entirely identical, to the geography of the Prime.1 Similarly, just as the geography is reminiscent of Toril’s, so too do its inhabitants and many creatures exist as fey “echoes” of the Prime creatures.1
Arcane magic runs more freely and powerfully in the Feywild than it does in the Prime and it is for this reason that so many of its inhabitants are magically gifted. The Feywild is also reputably beautiful compared with either the Shadowfell or the Prime.
