Ahh the hedge, places of wonder and awe, rolling hills of gold-- no, no, that's not the place I was thinking of. The hedge is something else, a tangled alien claustrophobic labyrinth that is the only barrier between the Human Realm and Arcadia. Between Earth and the lands of Fairy Tale.
Changelings find many reasons to go there, from the varieties of goblin fruit available, to the rare and mysterious and powerful items one might find in the market, or even to wrap themselves in the weave of story to create valuable hedgespun items. Make no mistake however, dear travelers, the hedge is not your world. The hedge is filled with it's own unique flora, fauna, denizens and stranger things in between; Hobs and Hobgoblins are this worlds people, and they don't take kindly to visitors from other realms stomping about like they own the place. Many lost of course build hollows among the Thorn and Bramble, even the Freehold itself, but beyond these points, the freehold holds little sway, and the pledges and protection offered there only extend so far.
Fairy Tale Creatures:
While people may experience many fantastical things of fairy tale delight in Arcadia, a land in which nearly all things and stories are possible, the hedge itself is not a Generic Fairy Tale Realm. The Hedge is its own unique place, full of its own thematic feel, strange and weird flora, fauna, and denizens. They can be found in many books, and a great resource is this right here... http://www.canadaatmidnight.ca/documents/st/Changeling%20the%20Lost%20Bestiary%20-%20Hobs%20and%20Beasts.pdf
What that means is that for the most part, things like unicorns, gryphons and dragons are not things one is likely to face within the Thorns. Very rarely, something might wander out from Arcadia, but such denizens are few and far between, and often beyond dangerous in their own right. Canonically, there is one dragon, and he is a Keeper, not a type of hedge beast one would just find wandering about in the thorns. There might be some strange analogues of course, perhaps some deadly equine beast with a nasty barbed horn, twisted and bizarre, leviathans of thorn and bramble, amalgamated creatures similar to chimera or manticore native to the hedge.
Staff invites and encourages players to explore/delve deeper the differences in the theme of Changeling: the Lost, rather than the generic fantasy tropes found all too commonly in fiction, less cartoonish creatures like tap-dancing satyrs, and magic dragons in favor of twisted briarwolves, noppera bo, vileshrikes or unique creatures based on the moods and themes already presented in the book.
