DRUIDISM

Druids draw their power from the natural energy fields surrounding the earth, plants, and animals. Although they do manipulate the elemental energy fields, their skill is limited. While frost dwarves are in tune with the natural world, especially the earth, they favor rune magic. Humans have proven adept at manipulating the elements, but do not have enough understanding of the natural world to become druids. They are powerful in the wilds, but suffer within artificial or worked structures, which block the natural energy fields.
