Respect the woods, and it will respect you in kind.
Pooka are wood spirits that inhabit the untamed woods in Emerald Crater. These spirits take the form of an animal when presenting itself before people—usually choosing a deer, rabbit, or horse with pitch-black fur and glowing red eyes. However, pooka usually prefer to remain unseen, opting instead to reveal itself as a glowing bulb of light in the distance. Many travelers lost in the woods have reported following these glowing orbs to safety, but be wary: as often as they have helped, they have also led people to dangers in the forest—fatal ones.
As a general rule, when one sees a light in Emerald Crater, they shouldn’t follow it unless it’s an absolute last resort or they are travelling with a dalyéwo. The natives of the deep forest have a completely different relationship with the spirits and are able to use the pookas advantageously.
