But wait! Your path has been blocked by a distraction in the form of a druid joke. What do you do?
You say, “Listen to them patiently.” *rolls dice*
Out of nowhere, a loud and jolly voice booms out, “Why did the malnourished druidess plant a bunch of saplings?” It pauses for a moment, as if awaiting your response then, before you can stammer a response, booms in reply to itself, “The doctor said she needed more new treants! BWAH HAH HAH HAAAA!”
You feel refreshed. The path has cleared, but your tears of laughter remain. Continue your journey.
A (Very) Brief Druidic History
In the interest of naming your druid or druidess well, you must understand their origin. If you’re just not interested, or already know what sort of name you’re looking for, skip ahead to the druid name generator.
In ancient history, druids held great esteem amongst the Celtic, and were specialists in lore, medicine, adjudication, law, and even political advice.
In the last 200-300 years there has been a resurgence in Druidism, also known as Neo-druidism. How cool is it that actual, real druids exist amongst us?
Even if they’re not the shapeshifting sort you’re used to…
Even though there are a fair number of real druids around today, in modern times you’re most likely to come across a druid is as a character class in a role-playing game (RPG), like WoW or D&D.
The RPG druid’s character class generally wears leather armor, wields axes, short swords, a mace, and a staff amidst other options.
The druid draws their magical abilities from a strong connection with the elements of nature, including the ability to shapeshift.
In World of Warcraft, an online RPG, druids may take the form of a cat, bear, seal, cheetah, tree, storm crow, or a Moonkin.
In D&D the possible Wild Shapes that a druid can transform into are far more numerous.
