I’m working in the music computer lab and talking with a friend of mine about Whorecraft. I’m thinking of rolling a Druid for a new class and was discussing the pro’s and con’s of it.
So I hop on the internets, look at thottbot, allakazam, sites like that, for general information… still not enough. So I type on google “why be a druid”, and found a site on a board where a guy was asking how to get started on being a druid.
I always found Druids interesting but never played one because (back when I played D&D second edition, anyway) they could only be True Neutral. What, you can’t love nature AND Mankind? (Or hate them, for that matter?)
You can love mankind as well as nature (as man is part of nature), but you’d love ALL mankind, even the aspects that “seem” evil. The whole true neutral “maintain the balance” thing is silly anyway, because most druids were actually neutral good in practice.
Now, they allow any neutral (NG, LN, N, CN, and NE), which makes a lot more sense.
This is, of course, assuming that you’re still playing by the 3.5 rules since Druids got annexed out of D&D along with Barbarians, Bards, Monks, Sorcerers, and so on (not certain if Hunters took it in the pants and I can’t think of any other classes) for 4.0.
