    Rjuven Druids

    I'm seriously thinking of buying the Ruven Highlands campaign expansion and
    I think a mix between the vikings and the celts (which is what I believe
    the rjuven are) is really great. But there's one thing about which I don't
    want to get disappointed. Druids. How do rjuven druids organize? Do they
    generate gold bars? Do they get to muster armies? Can they fortify their
    temples? Can they contest each other just as any other regent priests?
    If all of these questions' answers are 'Yes', I'm gonna be really
    disappointed...

    Please, elaborate as much as you can...

    First let me say, pick up the RH boxed set. You won't be disappointed. No
    matter what. And not to mention more BR sales will only help save our
    favorite setting. With that said on to some Druid stuff. First Druids thier
    Temples are organized into groups called "Circles". they do not use a Temple
    structure to house thier organizations, but meet and dwell in natural
    surroundings. Druid THs do generate GBs, but I will explain this better in a
    minute. Unless the "Ruler" of the nation allows it Druids(like all
    Priests)can not Muster Units. You need LHs for this(please note I can't
    remember if this is an official Rule or one of my House ones, sorry). As
    druids don't use actual buildings for Temples it may be hard to Fortify
    them, but I still think it would be possible since they are masters of
    nature, and most likely know how to mold the land to better protect thier
    Circle. And yes Druids can Contest other THs, but this only makes since as
    they should be able to protect themselves from being displaced, or to stop
    an "unbalancing" religion from entering thier lands.

    Getting back to the GBs, let me explain this better. In the Highlands Druids
    are an intregal part of every aspect of life. They are part of the
    Highlander's lives when they are born, when they are married, when they
    plant, harvest, and hunt. And of course when they die. Even Chieftans,
    Jarls, Kings, and Queens heed the word of the Druids and often they, as well
    as all folk, seek them out for constant advice. The obvious game result of
    this piety, and faith, are donations. These donations are represented as GBs
    that the Circle gains every DT. IMO I see no problem with this as a good
    reason for Druids getting GBs for thier THs. You could always treat this
    differently, but without some kind of financal power they will be quickly
    doomed. Not from within, but surely from without. Anyways I hope that helped.
