Circle of Stones

Druid Circle
Comments from The Finger: Another one made with our friend, Grand Moff Xela.

Standing stone by old road is the way
To lead you ever deeper into fae
Laystone as you lay in hill or del
Greystone leads to Faeriniel

Circle of Stones

Age-old monuments crafted in forgotten times attest to a simple truth: there is power in stones. Druids who join the ancient Circle of Stones carry on the tradition of raising stone henges in places of great power, where leylines intersect and magic strengthens. Such locations are marked as nexuses of power, where the Old Magic of the Old Gods is still heeded -- but such things are known only to a few druids today. All others see the looming stone monuments as enigmatic circles, and a grim reminder of the enormity of time.

The Dreamer

Otherworldly Patron
Comments from the Finger: Mr Sandman, bring me a dream.

The Dreamer

Your patron is a being from beyond your world, who communicates with you only in dreams. They might appear as a wise tutor, a frightening monster, or remain unseen, but their origins and motives are a mystery. What is known is that their presence at night has bestowed you marvelous power over sleep and dreams.

Path of Superiority

Primal Path
Notes from the Nails: new goal: make a maneuver subclass for every class.

Path of Superiority

You've always thought "barbarian" was a relative term. Sure, you rely on your rage and finely-honed muscles in a fight, but does that make you an uncultured brute? Clearly not, when you have studied the art of war just as closely as any painter has studied the "fine" arts. Who has the right to say what is and isn't "civilized", anyway?
     Perhaps you'll just have to prove them wrong. If a so-called barbarian can learn the same martial techniques as their greatest masters, maybe then they'll have to re-evaluate the nomenclature, eh?

Additional Maneuvers

Notes from the Nails: because battlemasters aren't 'anime' enough already!

Circle of the Mantis

Druid Circle
Notes from the Nails: A druid, built around battlemaster maneuvers?! They said it couldn't be done, that it was folly to even try. But where they saw madness, I found brilliance. Behold, my finest creation! The CIRCLE OF THE MANTIS!!

Circle of the Mantis

Druids belonging to the Circle of the Mantis believe that the natural world is in danger, and that they need to fight to defend it. By emulating the combat techniques used by animals, from the swift, surgical strikes of the praying mantis to the heavy kicks of the kangaroo, these druids develop martial skills to rival those of any monk.
