    Default Into the (fey)wild blue yonder

    My players have an artifact they need to hide, and they've decided to do so in the Feywild, cross-planar tracking being a complicated thing.

    Now, I've never run a game where there was cross-planar travel, much less to the Feywild. I have three of the plane books (Manual of the Plans, Planes Above, Planes Below), but does anyone have any advice for running a short-medium jaunt through this place?

    One part Grimm Brothers, one part Paprika, a dash of Changeling: the Lost, season to taste? Keep it weird, keep it fantastical.

    Well, if you're comfortable exercising a lot of creative license. I don't actually know what the Feywild is like, "officially".

    Basically the above, go as crazy weird magical fairy tale-y as you want. Alice in Wonderland also works well for the Feywild in small doses.

    Okay, I know the Grimm Brothers, but I don't really know what the others are.

    I...can't believe I forgot Alice.

    Paprika is a highly trippy Japanese animated film about dreams and all their weirdnesses (blurring the lines between fantasy and reality), and Changeling: the Lost is a White Wolf roleplaying game about humans who escaped from the Faerie realm, and who are now partially fey creatures.

    I will attach a warning to Paprika: it's definitely R-rated material at parts, including a depiction of sexual assault. Because, well, A) dreams are freaky stuff at times and B) creepy villain is creepy. There's definitely a lot to mine from, though. If nothing else, search up the parade scene (content-wise, it's tame), it contains a suitable amount of trippiness.

    Hayao Miyazaki's Spirited Away is another good one. Both European tales of the Fey and Japanese tales of Yokai are similar in ways...
