To Walk on Unseen PathsD&D Insider Article
Rangers and the Feywild
By Ari Marmell

Rangers who walk the Unseen Path are a peculiar sort. Something of the fey is about them, and they have a bond with the natural world that other rangers do not share. They frequently appear to see or hear what others do not, and they gaze at the world through faintly alien eyes. The Unseen Path seeks harmony between the Feywild and the natural world. Walkers of the Unseen Path often possess additional, instinctive goals that they do not entirely understand.

Warnings to remain clear of toadstool rings, to shun strange lights in the forest, and to avoid killing certain sorts of birds are more than rural superstition. In some regions they represent dangers as real as the weather or the predators of the wild, because here the influence of the Feywild seeps into the natural world. Where the trees grow thickest and the waters run deep, the realm of the fey casts its shadows into the realm of mortals, because nature becomes a doorway between them.
