Pathfinder Sounds & Music | Dryad Encounter
From the Bestiary
Dryads are tree-fey who prefer secluded woodlands far from humanoids in need of lumber. Dryads’ main interests are their own survival and that of their beloved forests, and they have been known to magically coerce passersby into aiding them in tasks they cannot complete. They are more likely to be friendly to non-evil druids and rangers, as they recognize a mutual respect for or empathy with nature.
Dryads are benign guardians of trees, and though they can do little in the way of direct violence, they can trap and disable threats to their homes or turn enemies into allies. Some keep one or more charmed humanoids in their territory to fend off or lead away attackers. Incapacitated foes are typically dragged to the edge of the forest by the dryad’s allies and left there, but evil or overtly hostile ones are killed once combat is over.
Everything you need for a rich encounter with these dangerous creatures. Though probably not necessarily fatal, an encounter with dryads may very well end with waking on the edge of the forest, stripped of equipment, clothes and dignity. The sounds of this SoundSet are also quite pretty… think of it as a relaxation ambiance, but with imminent danger always just a wrong step away!
This SoundSets will appear by default in the Syrinscape Fantasy Player app, but you can make it appear in any of the apps by using the Campaign Manager.
