Gnomes of the Singing Wood    Lifeforms  (Intelligent Species)   (Forest/ Jungle)

The excited, almost frantic sound of a mallet instrument erupts from the forest to your left.  Within minutes, your party is confronted by a host of short, sprite-like gnomes clad in vivid greens and earthy browns.  Attempts to communicate fall flat.  The gnomes seem to ignore your words entirely, and you cannot understand the humming/whistling/snapping that apparently makes up their language.  Luckily for you and your fellows, however, they don't seem hostile . . .

Mordanfey    Lifeforms  (Fauna)   (Forest/ Jungle)

Only after the unicorn hunts ended did the people realize that the unicorns were not returning. Many were saddened to discover that they had killed the last unicorns.  Some wept.

But when they returned many long years later, many more would weep.

Fire Flies    Lifeforms  (Fauna)   (Forest/ Jungle)

Some people might call them cute, but unlike fireflies that just glow and look pretty, Fire Flies can give you nasty burns if you mess around with them, so look but don't touch.

The Elgr of Guardwoad Forest    Lifeforms  (Intelligent Species)   (Forest/ Jungle)

The Hunter, with his bow nocked, moved quietly through the underbrush. Not quietly enough. The Elgr spotted him; he had no idea what he was looking at: It was an eight foot tall Elk standing upright, and not only was it standing… it was… dancing? Quickly twirling with ribbons streaming from its antlers, it was coming closer…

Deathapple Trees    Lifeforms  (Flora)   (Forest/ Jungle)

As the tree sprouted from his chest, and the roots anchored his body to the ground, he wished as he died that he had not eaten the golden apple.

Greendeath    Lifeforms  (Third Kingdom)   (Forest/ Jungle)

Cheenan The Tree Folk    Lifeforms  (Intelligent Species)   (Forest/ Jungle)

You could only hear the rest of them. And you could only hear them because they didn’t mind being heard. Running in the trees they were. We followed the little guy named Dorto. He led us to a spot and said in broken Gallen, "Here is village". There was nothing there I tell you. We looked about and could not see a thing.  He smiled and pointed up.  You could see it then, the huts and nests and ropes. A bunch of them were just hanging there by their feet looking at us. It was going to be an odd night. Exerpt from A Sailor’s Journey, by Ptholus WindRider

A common mistake when writing adventures set in deserts is to assume that the climate is too ferociously hot to wear armor. Historically, most battles in deserts involved troops dressed in protective armor. Although they would have been miserable during the hottest part of the day or the hottest part of the year, desert weather isn't intolerably hot 24/7.
