Druids are champions of nature, though they claim no power over it.
Instead, a druid’s power comes from being one with the natural world,
revelling in the awesome destructive power of a storm and finding
strength in the gentle rejuvenating potential of a calm pool. Druids
are a mixed lot, following the paths of various deities and even
holding to diverse truths about the natural world. As such, any
two druids may not see eye-to-eye on many matters, including the
very essence of nature itself. Many druids prefer to be solitary,
finding the company of others an unwelcome distraction. Some form
circles with other druids, employing strict hierarchies wherein
each druid knows his own standing and that of his brothers and sisters.

A druid must hold on to some measure of dispassion in imitation of
nature’s own ultimate indifference. As such, only those of neutral
alignments may become druids. Some spells may require additional
components or particular settings, such as an area with a still pool.

In addition to spells, a druid can <shapeshift [form]>, gaining new forms
and new abilities as the druid grows in power. Druids train with natural
weapons and armor, and they further take traditional oaths that restrict
them from using metal armor. Druids avoid carrying much worked metal at
all, believing that it interferes with the pure nature of the wilds.
