Lore keeps an inn just within the forest, he figured what better adventure than to live right in it
Everfree Forest is a forest located at the very center of Equestria. It is host to many wild creatures that are capable of taking care of themselves instinctivly without the need of pony aid. The plants also grow wildly and the weather natually occurs without pegasi aid either. How the forest does all this is unknown and feared to Equestrian ponies and is considered unnatual by them, though Steven Magnet knows it's because of the water cycle the weather works and teaches Epic about it.
The forest is also notoriously known for monsters. Monsters differ from animals by the fact they are, in sense abominations. Usually possessing abilities and unlike animals which can be violent for defence or survival, monsters can be just natually and dangerously violent when encountered. However some creatures can be question if monsters or not such as dragons, but it is widely believed that dragons are not monsters.
The forest itself is also natually enchanted as it has magical plants such as poison joke, heart's desire, zap apple trees and other such flora. Some monsters relate to flora themselves (plant-type monsters) such as the Flories or Timberwolves. One of the great secrets of the forest is that it has paths leading to other enchanted forests from around the world.
Only some few equines live in the Everfree Forest:
- Zecora - A zebra who lives in the Everfree Forest though not far from Ponyville.
- Epic Mount/ - An earth pony who lives deep in Everfree Forest.
The Everfree PonyEdit
- Main article: Epic Mount
The Everfree Pony is an urban legend usually known to some in Ponyville. It is believed to be a lost pony or perhaps a manifestation of the forest itself that takes the form of a grey pony, a guardian spirit of the forest. With various stories, some say it lures curious ponies into the forest to be lost forever while others say that it protect and guides lost ponies home. There are even stories of the Everfree Pony leaving the forest to aid ponies in time of great need as some kind of hero while others regard it as a monster. Only a few know who the Everfree Pony truly is.
The forest has many locations hidden deep into it's woods. It is where the ruins of a castle known as the ancient castle of the royal pony sisters stand. At the edge of the forest meeting towards Ponyville there is a large swamp known as the Froggy Bottom Bog, Epic knows this place well as the home to the Hydra. This swamp spans through the forest making up the "Bogg". Everfree Forest is also home to Zecora. At the edge of the forest meeting Ponyville there is a meadow where the statue of Nightmare Moon stands and that every Nightmare Night (pony-Halloween) an offering of sweets is given to the statue to appease Nightmare Moon.
As the forest is enchanted, travelling deep into the woods can be confusing as anypony can become irreversibly lost due to the enigmatic and impossible paths of the forest. Only those who know how to navigate the forest, such as Epic Mount who knows the majority of the forest well, can move through it safely. Part of the phenomenon of the forest is the ability to interconnect with other forests with simular environments.
Epic Mount's homeEdit
Epic lives in a small meadow deep into the forest. As easy as it is to get lost in the deep woods there is a vague path to his home which is not difficult for ponies to follow from Ponyville. However the way to Epic's home is longer and more difficult than the way to Zecora's home.
Epic's house is a large old tree which has been converted into a home for Epic Mount. Unlike the Books and Branches Library only the top half of the tree is the house, elevated to keep monsters out and the lower half conceals a small basement where Epic keeps memento's of his adventures. This tree is at the very center of the meadow.
There is a path leading up to the steps of his home, one of the distinct features of this path is an old and slightly rusty sword in a stone purely as decoration.
Despite Epic's home living in Equestria he has never regarded himself as Equestrian believing Equestria and the Everfree Forest as two seperate locations. What he failed to realise was that Everfree Forest was at the very center of Equestria all along.
While the forest can be dark and scary, there are a few meadows in the forest of various sizes, these places have few to no tree's which allow sunlight into the forest and for grass and plants (sometimes magical plants) can grow. These places are not safe from monsters but monsters rarely enter meadows due to lack of darkness and cover. These meadows can be home to rare wild animals of Everfree Forest.
Epic Mount knows of a particular meadow with some tree's, one tree has the nest of Green-wing Song Birds. He took Fluttershy to see them one time to calm her down after a fight with a Hydra and promise to take her to see them anytime she wishes.
