Apple treeAfter much research, Charlie found a forested location where the planar barriers between the world and the Feywild are thin. Charlie removes all armor plating, and several other inorganic parts on the surface, until most of the warforged’s inner wooden frame is visible. Then, when the ritual incantation is complete, the clearing merges into the Feywild, surrounded by a twist in space that misdirects any who approach it from either plane away into the other (conveniently preventing interference until the process is complete).

Charlie’s wooden body begins to change shape – taking root, sprouting branches, and finally growing into a full sized apple tree. Over the course of the next hour, the tree flowers, and bears fruit; oversize apples in various colors, including some metal ones. One apple falls, and soon a tiny, crude humanoid shape eats its way out of it. Others fall, and it consumes them each in turn. growing larger and more defined until finally, upon swallowing the crystalline seeds of the last one, she takes her new form.

Larae’s new body is indistinguishable from an ordinary Eladrin. Her skin and hair are green, though this is within the normal range of coloration for noble eladrin (especially those residing in the Feywild). Her teeth and fingernails are of silvery metal, and upon closer inspection the irises of her eyes are made of curved segments of lapis lazuli that twist open and closed mechanically. All of this stuff is completely cosmetic, and her body functions almost exactly like the original – in game mechanics terms, she’s just an eladrin.
