Forest Argent is a system all about exploration, its about a game world in which you are an active participant in building it. We have given an overview of each of the worlds that make up the Forest Argent and the World Primer then goes onto give you an up to date idea of what the players and plot have added.
So this world keeps growing and it grows in the way that you ask it to. Of course we ask players to send there ideas to us first, because who knows what other ideas have already been requested that you might be about to find out?
So, several years ago, the players wandered into the Forest Argent and found there where other worlds... some with technology... some with magic.... the repercussions of that can still be felt and you could be part of its future.

In a country of oak trees and slow-creeping industry, a land called England, but where the fey are not quite forgotten, there are places where things touch. The fey live in a place through a gate, in a wall that crumbles. Every now and again, they hold fairs, inviting the mortals to join them, helping human sorcerers or changelings left with humans to access their abilities. The fey know about the forest: once in a while they escape to the Argent if wanted for crimes or for political reasons, and sometimes humans tumble in with them.
