Many across Faerûn are familiar with the Emerald Enclave, a far-reaching collective of druids, rangers, fey, and nature-loving individuals who seek to protect the balance between the natural world and civilization.
However, as the Enclave evolved, a gap widened between the political will of the Lord’s Alliance and individual city-states and the Enclave itself. Whose responsibility were the wilds beyond political boundaries? Who should oversee green spaces inside the cities themselves?
Out of this discord, the Circle of Balance emerged.
Druids who join the Circle of Balance at 2nd level adopt the tenets of the urban circle. Chief among these is the belief that civilization is a part of nature and nature, of civilization. Beyond urban plant- and wildlife, these druids recognize the creatures around them, humanoid and non-, as part of the natural order of the world and worthy of protection.
While others might find cityscapes stifling or lifeless, druids of the Circle of Balance find artificially-developed environs fascinating and have sought to adapt themselves to better commune with and understand the far-reaching possibilities of cities at peace with nature, open to more forms of life and ways of being.
This adaptation is not one-sided, however; as Circle of Balance druids grow more powerful, they irresistibly alter the urban environment around themselves. They constantly seek understanding and accord between the various peoples and beings of the world, across both densely populated and extremely remote spaces.
