Your message is being returned to you unprocessed because it appears to have

already been distributed to the BIRTHRIGHT-L list. That is, a message with

identical text (but possibly with different mail headers) has been posted to

the list recently, either by you or by someone else. If you have a good reason

to resend this message to the list (for instance because you have been notified

of a hardware failure with loss of data), please alter the text of the message

in some way and resend it to the list. Note that altering the "Subject:" line

or adding blank lines at the top or bottom of the message is not sufficient;

you should instead add a sentence or two at the top explaining why you are

resending the message, so that the other subscribers understand why they are

getting two copies of the same message.

Fair enough. We are basically agreeing, but I prefer to call the reverence of nature something different than divine magic as it is not based on a divine deity. It is all sematics,

Druids (in Birthright - gain their magical powers from a nature deity (i.e., Erik), no other option)

That is of course if you feel bound by the `setting definition`. For the rest of us there are a plethora of options. If somebody can have faith in nature enough to have spells granted for this, why wouldn`t there be any dedicated spiritual leaders aka priests? Or on the other hand, if the ranger`s spells aren`t from a deity, would a mere human be able to acheive that bond with nature?
