Soi Stices

While the equinoxes represent the transition of the natural cycle, the solstices serve as markers along the journey. The summer solstice displays the culmination of rebirth eagerly anticipated during the vernal equinox. On the other hand, the winter solstice confirms the grim and harsh reality forebode during the autumnal equinox. Although less important than the equinoxes, druids universally observe both solstices nonetheless. During the summer solstice, the frenzied din of life resonates...

Wondrous Items

Druids prefer crafting and utilizing magical items using a host of natural materials. Leather remains one of the most diverse and useful components of such wondrous items, however wood and occasionally bone also find ample usage.

Wood

In the eyes of the novice all wood looks the same, but to the druid, nothing is farther from the truth. Other than food, no natural product plays a more essential role in druid society than wood. Druids construct their homes, weapons, religious artifacts and other personal items from a variety of different woods depending on the finished product's intended usage. They favor sturdy, unyielding varieties for building shelters, durable and lightweight types for handheld weapons and shields, and...

Creating the Circfe

Like many of nature's social animals, a new circle usually traces its origins to an old circle. Just as a young queen bee leaves the colony to begin her own hive and young male lions leave the pride to find their own place in the world, druids propagate their numbers in similar fashion. Naturally suspicious of large, amorphous organizations, ambitious druids wracked by angst and driven by a pioneering spirit gather together a small group of like-minded individuals in the endeavor of creating a...

Druids and Deities

Although druids draw their divine powers from nature herself, they also revere deities closely affiliated with nature and its inhabitants. Deities associated with nature and fertility receive some veneration from druids as a form of celestial insurance. While not dependent upon deities for their personal power, druids enjoy the benefits of a potent ally and his worshippers. Despite their cooperation with the deity's clerics, they always detach themselves from the clergy's internal affairs. In...

Venom Types

As mentioned previously, snakes produce extremely virulent toxins, and they are the most abundant source of organic venom in the wild, making their venom the most prevalent choice of druids in this profession. Regardless of the source, there are two general types of venom, hemotoxic and neurotoxic. Hemotoxic venom attacks and destroys living tissue and blood cells while wracking its victims with excruciating pain. On the other hand, neurotoxic venom inflicts less pain, but is often much...
