*The feral High Druid can be seen in Triel checking on the horses and livestock as well as watching the area surrounding the town on a regular basis. She brings the horses an apple each as a treat.*

The ranger Erlendir came upon a march of treants that had settled on the Trade Way just outside the Friendly Arm Inn. A large group of adventurers quickly formed around the treants and Bentley Mirrorshade grew agitated with their presence.

Their tale was a sad one: A pit fiend which had been summoned by a cult had driven them from their ancestral home in the Forest of Wyrms.

Image

Rather than leave the treants to a fate of axe and fire the group decided to lead them through the Wood of Sharp Teeth to the southern reaches of the forest where they would be safe. The treants settled happily around the stump of an ancient oak tree. A small band split off from the others to hunt the demon while Erlendir departed to inform Doron Amar of this new development.

Two rangers and a white haired woman hunted orgres and gnolls around the Lions Way. They didn't kill any of the beetles. Also they entered the gnoll cave and reduced their numbers.

Subject: DM Rumours of the Sword Coast
DM Soulcatcher wrote:Apparently across the Sword Coast, shrines to deities of Nature are being found desecrated and damaged or completely destroyed- sometimes also finding wild animals killed around them as well. There's some grumbling around Farmlands in Baldur's Gate about a rumoured unsuccessful attempt to do the same to shrine of Chauntea, which greatly displeases a number of devout farmers. A ranger of Mielikki living near Beregost was reported to be completely horrified by the act of such atrocity he had found at the nearby shrine to Mielikki.
Image
After hearing of the rumors Vendor Xon and his companion Tom would visit the shrine of Mielikki some days later. He would smile as he noticed that the other rangers and druids already cared for the destroyed shrine and the broken wooden statue. The ranger would plant new trees and sow other plants around the sacred place. Then he would pray to the Forest Queen and ask her for any help so that this won't happen again. Also he would call the wild animals and gather them around the shrine. He would motion to them in the animal languages and also speak in common. "My friends, can you tell me who destroyed the shrine? We need your help. Go and find the perpetrator!"

A message to these lines is left, well written to answer Vendors offer. Even with a quote from an old tale in it.
Aaye Vendor,

"once upon og time, Lurue was found in a ray of pure moonlight. Mielikki raised her and taught her the ways of Nature....".

I might not be a ranger or druid. I might not be running around to be involved everywhere. But i want to help and try to make a difference. I heard the name of the Elder Circle some time ago. I would like to see if we can get in touch and support eachother more.

Let me know when or where i can meet you.

May Lurue enchant your path
~Freya


//I am a european player with a strict RL, so i chose to get in contact this way for now. ^^ If a spontanious meeting doesn't work, send me PM or a tell in gane so we can make an appointment. ;)

*Nai, has been in the Sacred Druid Grove guarding day and night for the past few days, getting ready to perform a Silvanite Holy Ritual. Here the Archdruidess is seen having a lovely conversation with Mama Bear, Papa Bear and the Baby Bears probably having nothing to do with porridge.*

A dark shadow seams to linger in the forest as once friendly creature to nature now have a rabid blood lust and hate for its own kind. Some Deer, rabbit and squirrel have formed a vicious pack of predators upsetting natures balance attacking all, even adventurers and people of the forest alike. Dark Power is afoot in the Cloakwood as a wild pack of mishmash creatures become craze with hate and blood lust.
Vendor Xon would inform the other rangers and druids and ask for their help to hunt down those tainted animals as fast as possible. Also he would ask them to search for the source of this dark power and continue his own search.

Thistle would help with looking for clues in the Cloakwood. She would ask at the campfire near it as well. Even in the Friendly Arm she would make a stop from time to time and ask around.

She would find it strange that this wood would not come to peace lately. Maybe it is connected? Might be it still had some unresolved business with the dwarfs, golems and shadow druids?

On her way through Cloakwood, as her path usually takes her, the druidess Amaranthe slows her step to take stock of things that become odd to her suddenly - the tension of the forest inhabitants, the lack of birdsong. She frowns, her black brows weaving together at the off-ness that suddenly floods her awareness. She lifts her nose to scent, picking up blood and the musk of anger. She sets herself to the task of tracking the unnatural association of creatures and their unnatural taste for blood.
DM Hera wrote:In the Cloakwood deep with in the shadows you discover a makeshift alter of black and crumbled stone to some depraved Orcish god. Here are the remains of fruits altered by dark magics, corrupted and designed to turn these once friendly woodland creatures hostile. The Process used is likely unable to be replicated by another but with study one can learn it was foul forbidden magics at play. With the discovery of this alter and its destruction the threat to the wood will pass.
Upon finding the vile altar and giving it a and the surrounding area a thorough study, Amaranthe speaks a word of prayer and power to call down a divine Flamestrike upon the spot, ensuring that only the altar and its offerings burn, and not the untouched surrounding area. She stands watching the fire as the light of it glints in her amber gaze, anger apparent. When the fire diminishes and there is no trace left of the source of the imbalance in Cloakwood, she goes to make a report to the Circle.

2 rangers, a druid and a paladin of nature deities wander through Cloakwood. They are looking for any signs of the frenzied animals.

Later another ranger joins them and they pacify the Haunted Mansion. Till the lich is back again.

In the Cloakwood deep with in the shadows you discover the remains of a makeshift alter of black and crumbled stone to some depraved Orcish god. It seams a Flame was cast upon the altar to destroy it and burn much of the corrupted fruit in the area. These fruits altered by dark magics, corrupted and designed to turn these once friendly woodland creatures hostile. The Process used is likely unable to be replicated by another but with study one can learn it was foul forbidden magics at play. With the discovery of this alter and its destruction the threat to the wood has passed (mostly because all the fruit has been eaten and the infected animals destroyed).

Indeed there seam to be a particular hostility of infected animals towards Wolf... for some reason.


Players with.
with atleast 16 ranks in region you learn It was to some orcish god but whom? to hard to tell sense the shrine was destroyed.

with atleast 14 ranks in Spellcraft, the magic was arcane to create the fruits, but has now long faded and no further info. The Flamestrike that destroyed the altar was Divinish in nature.

With Atleast 8 ranks in Survival you notice only animal tracks, it appears a large humanoid teleported to this spot, constructed the shrine and left via magic.

With 30 ranks in survival a person would suspect a friendly forest person came through here to, just before you all. but stepped very lightly.

Lore Nature reveals this as an unnatural event. There is no known cure beside restoration spells for what few animals survived the infection.


((this was a player driven thing, with the shrine destroyed and his plan completed for now, successful or not? Whom ever wanted to bring frustration to nature is still out there (a player so this is as far as I can take it. enjoy the rp and happy gaming!) ))
This looks like revenges from Orc to Wolfrayn.

A note is left for the Elder circle at the shrine of silvanus, wolf appears to be concerned with the growing number of agrivated animals attacking him lately. The note details his first experience with a herd of rampaging dire boars that came out of the woods near FAI to attack him, the animals themselves appear to have been teleported nearby and pushed towards him in a rush of blind rage, he had to put them down. He mentions an 2 encounters he thinks may be related. One a orc in red robes with a white mask that attacked him not far from the Fai and two the orc in possession of magmires staff who he had threatened and chased after prior. He warns that should these orcs are both dangerous threats and should not be taken lightly.
Wolfrayne (Proud Silvanite) - Time is not important.. only life.
Reiker Vexx ("Adventurer") - Fortune favors the bold.
Cyrus Raviin (Conjurer) - Power always comes at a price. The question is, are you willing to pay?
Abraxsis Dul'Khan (Merchant) - Oooo now isn't that shiny?
