The treants of the Harken Forest would be much more familiar to those from outside the Vale. They have more “standard” and common abilities, owing to the Winterbole treants gaining additional powers from their pacts with primal beings. Their attitudes and behaviors are no more comforting than their Winterbole enemies however, being incredibly contemptuous of most humanoid life and exceptionally hostile.
They are allied with the Harken’s Heart druids, but also a reasonably large wood woad population. The squat, stern plants support the treants in their ongoing war against the Winterbole and the encroaching humanoid civilizations.
Originally from the 4e Monster Vault: Threats to the Nentir Vale.
