~{ THE DRUID CIRCLE }~
Nature's Protectors - Keepers of Balance - Warriors of the Wild




The Druid Circle is a democratic, roleplaying guild of Nature. Druids fit into the hierarchy of a worldwide Order that espouses a well-defined ethos yet grants each member considerable freedom of action. All druids, from the humblest initiate to the great druid, may freely follow their own interpretation of druidic beliefs and act however they believe best serves Nature. All druids (pure and/ or multiclassed ones) of any race and alignment are welcome so long as their druid class are the highest level. The Circle is formed up of 3 Schools of Teachings and a caste system.


icon_arrow.gif Principles of the Circle
These druidic duties are not so much personal matters, but as the ethical responsibility of the entire Order. There are 2 main aims of the Circle:

Guardians of Nature
Druids serve the force of Nature and its inherent natural cycles, such as that of birth, growth, death, and rebirth. Druids realize all creatures have basic needs for food, shelter, and self-defense. Humans must hunt animals for food and must clear trees to farm and build houses. These actions constitute a necessary part of the natural cycle. But druids do not tolerate unnecessary destruction or exploitation of Nature.

Keepers of the Balance
Druids see that a balance between the forces of good and evil, law and chaos, best fosters the continuance of life from one generation to the next. They look at the cycles of the world as driven by the actions and machinations of mankind (and other intelligent races) and believe that, as individuals play their part in the great cycle, they can also upset it.The majority see human and demihuman races in general and the druidic order in particular as pivotal to maintaining the cosmic balance.


icon_arrow.gif Hierarchy
There are 5 different ranks of druid in the Circle. Each with a purpose and direction. Yet it must be stressed that even with an overrall leader, the Druids Guild is fundamentally a democracy.

Grand Druid [1]
The overall leader of the Circle, whos words and orders are the strongest. First and foremost, the Grand Druid acts as a politician, responsible for keeping harmony between the great druids of each domain and between the various druidic branches. He is the unified voice of the Circle and directs the Circle as a whole.

Great Druid [3 for each School]
They are in charge of each School's own set of beliefs and philosophies. They direct the individual goals and aims of the School.

Arch Druid [undecided]
Close assistants to Great druids, these have been raised to Arch druid through hard work for their School or for the Circle as whole.

High Druid [Unlimited]
Druids who are fully experienced through training and hardship attain this rank. The majority of druids fall under this category.

Initiate [Unlimited]
All druids who have not yet reached their peak through training and guidance automatically have this title.

The druids adhere to a rather informal hierarchical structure and require their initiates to hold true to the basic ethos of the druidic order and respect higher-ranking druids. During formal occasions, the Circle include the usage of a Title when addressing a fellow druid. If you are below in rank to the person, you refer to them as "Master/Mistress *". If you are equal or above in rank to the person, you refer to them as "Brother/Sister *"


icon_arrow.gif The 3 Schools of Teachings
Each school of the Druid Circle has its very own unique set of principles, beliefs and philosophies, respective to the Great druid to guide and moderate.

Healers of the Oak - [neutral good only]
As the name may imply, this school of druids seek peaceful and diplomatic solutions with neighbouring communities, towns and cities. They do not believe in the use of force to teach others Nature's Ways, instead bestowing and sharing with them the Earth Mother's wisdom and knowledge. These are essentially the diplomats of Nature and will heal those in need with Her powers.

The Sentinels - [lawful neutral, true neutral and chaotic neutral]
The druids of this school take no particular stand. They are ready to slay those who seek to harm Nature and ever willing to heal others as well. Instead of going to towns and cities to preach of Nature's Ways, The Sentinels spend more of their time doing patrols and scouts in the forests for any possible dangers or new happenings.

Stand of the Predators - [neutral evil only]
The Predators feel that talk and reasoning are nothing but a waste of time. The longer druids wait, the more lands will be raped off their trees and rivers. These druids believe strongly in fighting for Nature's Balance and believe that constructions of the civilised should be destroyed and returned to Her. They are our rugged warriors.


icon_arrow.gif The Castes System
They show what class and type of druid you are and function as a roleplaying tool. Each caste title is based upon the respective ability or characteristic of the druid that he/ she chooses to emphasize on.

Avengers - [Strength]
These are for druids who prefer a more fighting/warrior style of combat. Druids who become fighters, want to take a more direct approach to defending the wilderness. They may sacrifice some druidic qualities and skills, in order to improve their swordsmanship and melee prowess.

Faerns - [Wisdom]
These are for more strict and pure druids whose spiritual power from Nature is unparalleled. They are the most in tune with Mother Nature and draw all their divine magic from it.

Stalkers - [Dexterity]
Druids who fall in this grouping rely more on their finesse and fleetness. Most druids who neither fit into the Avenger nor Faern Castes, usually fit into the Stalker Caste. Some seek to attune themselves to Nature by mastering their own bodies using eastern-style fighting arts, often becoming rather enigmatic Zenlike warrior-mystics.

prolly one of the most organized guilds in dyso, and it dont even got no one in it. Your an inspiration to all, As for Sylvandale, the guard wishes to protect sylvandale from the evil unholy drow, inorder to make up for their earlier disturbance.
the White Rose and lgog are allied within the Sylvandale limits so that we may not Harm natures beauty. The Drow are foul and we shall fight them with all our might.

Cyric Bless you.

Thanks Silkie for volunteering. I'm sure you'll make a good Archdruid. The members-listing is still in the works as I continue to search for more druid enthusiasts. (FYI Snares is the Healers of the Oak Archdruid)

I haven't really seen any neutral evil druids. Hopefully someone will take that position soon... Then we'll have all three Archdruids leading the Circle.

It's still pretty vacant at the moment. I've several new druids around but most of them aren't too interested in the guild thing or are just freelancers. (Still searching though.) And a BEEG THANK YOU to all, for your encouragements and support! icon_lol.gif

I'm too in love with my mage and my ranger/fighter/rogue to make a Druid character, though again, this is by far the most organized, and looking forward to see guild I've come across in here.

Shame on those who are not this organized !!!

SHAME on YOU !

There has been quite some developments going on. New members should seek either one of the 3 Archdruids, Brother Zard, Sister Silkie or myself.

It's always best to direct them to the forums so that guild members can keep in contact.

I have currently withheld any urges for further development of our hierarchy until our membership expands beyond the count of 20. I would think it is unwise and may cause an inbalance (towards the Circle) to have too many Archdruids (as of now) and too few other members under their wing. Of course, those loyal to the Earth Mother and having served Her selflessly will be decorated with higher ranks in time to come...

cussing.gif As for now......... KEEP THE DRUIDS POURING IN LIKE A RAGING RIVER!!!
