24.2.4.4 Waldgeist

A waldgeist is a wood spirit residing within the trees of Sapience. A custodian of the forest, waldgeists are often visible within the tree they inhabit, and are said to be a sign of good fortune when spotted.

One unique phenomena surrounds the Great Oak of the Heartwood, which is inhabited by several wood spirits due to its exceptional nature. This should be considered the exception rather than the rule and a quirk of the Oak's strong link to Dendara, as waldgeist sightings in the forests beyond are said to be quite rare. 

The waldgeists resemble wizened old men in their appearance, often with leaves and twigs for hair and beard. They are drawn to pure spirits and are known to be playful at times, rumored to grant wishes to the kind-hearted.
