Worl Woods are some of the tallest trees in Eem and make for a practical choice when fashioning enormous furniture. But its not the size that makes their forests impressive, its the notion that faerie folk believe Worl Woods are sentient, even after death.

With roots reaching up to a thousand feet down, many forest dwellers believe that these monumental growths drink neither rain nor rivers thawed by wintery mountain peaks. It is believed that these trees drink from the font of Eem’s spirit. Like great, fingers they reach from the surface of Eem, swaying imperceptibly with the rhythm of the spinning world.

Faeries believe that a Worl Wood dreams, shedding pieces of its nigh immortal memory with every falling leaf–telling an epic story with every branch and vine and twig and bulb. No other living thing in the known world lives so long as a Worl Wood, and so no other thing can tell a story so sweeping and profound.
