The Druids


Mythology

Druids, unlike priests and clerics, do not worship deities. Their belief is that the world has a single large entity, Nature. Nature in turn, consists of an infinite amount of Spirits that form every fabric of material in the world. Druids, due to their close relationship with nature as a whole, are said to be able to communicate with these spirits, - and to ask favours of them. In turn, druids nurture their surroundings in an effort to keep the spirits healthy, so that nature remains clean and balanced. Spirits range from small primitive spirits found in droplets of water or a pebble, to large evolved spirits found in animals and mankind. The most evolved spirits are called sentient spirits, and are said to exist with an awareness of their own, and the power to affect other spirits with their very presence. The druids look upon all the deities, major and minor, as the oldest and most evolved of these sentient spirits.

The different sentient spirits affect their neighbouring “lesser” spirits in different ways. Some of them, like Tharandil and Dualdin, do so in a way that is generally accepted by druids. Others have lost their way, and have become egocentric and greedy. Instead of living in coexistence with other spirits, they manipulate them, and abuse their favours. Some druids are known to also judge magicians this way.

One sentient spirit, Bhaal, became so obsessed with the powers he had, that he went from manipulating other spirits, to enslaving them, using their favours until their death. In so doing, he created unlife, which Bhaal fuelled with his own powers stolen from living spirits. As a consequence of this, all undead beings and followers of Bhaal inanely draw their energy from living spirits, surrounding themselves with death. Needless to say, the undead, and followers of Bhaal are a druids’ archenemy.

Non-druids have discussed what this nature entity could be, and speculations point in the direction that the Druids might worship AO himself. However, druids dismiss this claim
