The Feywild is the plane of Faerie, a reality suffused with chaotic, potent magic where all fey — or elves — came from originally.

Here are 9 marvelous images from The Wild Beyond the Witchlight, the first official adventure to the Feywild in 5th Edition.

Once every eight years, the Witchlight Carnival visits your world, and that’s where the adventure begins as it flies into town, wherever that may be.

The Witchlight Carnival comes with a colorful map akin to what you might see at a Disney theme park.

Misters Light and Witch are two shadar-kai (shadow elves) referenced in Van Richten's Guide to Ravenloft.

They once traded places with the Celestial named Isolde who now manages their previous, more sinister Carnival in Ravenloft.

At the Ravenloft Carnival, deceitful fey lure the unwary from the midway where they encounter unspeakable horrors.

Misters Light and Witch are, thankfully, a little more well-intentioned — even if one of them kind of looks like Donald Trump.

Wait, which one is Witch and which one is Light?

Your dealings with them eventually lead you through a portal to...the Feywild’s Domain of Delight called Prismeer.

One encounter there is with a Treant named Little Oak who houses a gang of children on his back, and they have a pet Displacer Beast (sort of a teleporting panther with barbed tentacles...)

Alternate cover art by Hydro74 shows a Displacer Beast. Is it Little Oak’s friend?
