Italicize feats and abilities followed by a brief description
Need or greed? Your belly full, your head dry, a loving wife by your side, loyal children at your feet wishing guidance - what more need you? What more will gold gain you? Cherish what you have and lust not for hollow victories in trade, true wealth is measured by the respect and love of those around you, not by bright finery and petty geegaws!
The grieving arch-druid has seen the church of Aeric collapse within his lifetime, primarily due to the machinations of Mheallie Bireon and Larra Nielems. He now spends much of his time in Dhoesone where the faith of Aeric is yet strong, though waning in the face of Sarimie's gold and guile.
Euric has become disillusioned since the Groves faded to irrelevance in Cariele. It seems to him that men seem bonded to dreams of wealth and hunger for easy gains, shunning hard work and rewards of the heart. As a result Euric is one of the more martial members of the faith - if the lies of Sarimie will find fertile soil should they take rot, then they must be torn from the ground ere they can sprout. Euric favors the destruction of trade routes and symbols of wealth, actively encourages physical assaults on Sarimie's missionaries, and encourages the growth of militant members of the faith and creation of natural fortresses for use in the coming war for Dhoesone - for Euric is certain that Nielems will turn to military means to spread her faith if her more insidious methods are blocked.
Euric spends his time mostly wandering the forests, using his magic to encourage the growth of forests, healing animals injured by hunters - and augmenting many. He is on cordial terms with the sidhe - even the gheallie sidhe seem to recognize Euric as, if not ally, then one equally at odds with the guilds that despoil the forests. Euric has visited the Grimpen Mire frequently, the native spirits seem wary and enticing to the grieving druid in equal measure, Euric has persuaded several of the spirits of the Mire to inhabit physical forms leading the creation of several plant-beasts such as Shambling Mounds, Treants and Greenvise, Euric hopes that these 'natural' creatures will prevent the 'unnatural' children of the mire - Owlbears, Ankhegs, catoblepas and the like from threatening the surrounding area.
