Druidic Circles

Found this list of druidic circles floating around the net. quote: Here are the ones that Im aware of. D = Disbanded A = Active   Battledale Seven (Cormanthyr, D) Shadowdale Circle (Cormanthyr, D) the Talkers to the Trees (Cormyr-Kirinwood, A) the Knightswood Nine (Cormyr-Knightswood, A) The Emerald Enclave (Turmish and Chondath, A) The Nature Seekers (Underdark, A) Circle of Seven Daggers (Daggerdale, A)* Tall Trees (High Forest, A) Unnamed Circle (northern foothills of the Rauvin Mountains, A) The Circle of the Sheaf (Raven's Bluff area, A) Dusk Circle (Westwood, A)   * From the Northern Journey mega-adventure   Moonwells are a cool way of explaining grove sites as some kind of sponateous vigorous energy that wells up along waterflows from the earth. When properly tended by druids I'd give the pools of radiance the powers to spontaneously awaken plants, produce goodberries, control temperature and winds and provide sweet waters. These tend to become small groves of 60ft to 400ft radius, with plants growing in concentric circles around an open center for meditation, with usually the moonwell nearby.   I think the list above represents greater groves (400ft+) that have been tended for over a couple thousand years, and subsequently have greater power in their nature blessings. Unless they are disbanded, in which case they gradually lose their powers. I'm thinking powers on the level of spontaneous reincarnations, climate control, "beastspeak" zones or growth of forbidden fruits like ambrosium.   As of 1374 DR I'd give the (Active or Disbanded) groves the following status/powers. Its defenders (if any) will on average be of medium to high level.   the Elven Woods/Cormanthor     Battledale Seven (Cormanthyr Forest, D) fading Lesser Grove / sweet waters     Shadowdale Circle (Cormanthyr Forest, D) ancient faded Lesser Grove with Stone Circle/ control temperature - speaking menhirs     the Talkers to the Trees (Cormyr-Kirinwood, A) unknown/ unknown     the Knightswood Nine (Cormyr-Knightswood, A) recovered Greater Grove/ reincarnation - beastspeak zone - fey crossroad (dark waterpool between an ancient oak is a guarded by a friendly fey, and a two way portal to the public Heroes' Garden in Sea Ward of Waterdeep, which is guarded by a hostile feyguardian)     Circle of Seven Daggers (Daggerdale;

The followers of Mielikki maintain strongholds in Silverymoon and in the eastern edge of the High Forest (a sacred grove known as Tall Trees). The folk of the Silver Marches respect good druids, but they don't expect the nature priests to get involved in the day-to-day affairs of the communities unless doing so supports or affirms their religious convictions. Evil druids and their destructive tendencies are feared, especially when they associates (as they so often do) with bands of evil humanoids. Druids also congregate in small groups known as druidic circles, which is a reference to the natural life and death cycle. One can find a druidic circle located beneath the northern foothills of the Rauvin Mountains, where the border of the Coldwood meets the rising high ground.   There is also this from here: http://silverymoon.thyle.net/netbook/chapter3.html     The Circle of Silver The Circle of Silver is an alliance of druidic groves in the Moonlands. Founded in the Year of the Harp (1355 DR) by the Argent Watchers, the Circle of Silver has grown to include druids of many faiths and races. The elven and half-elven Leaflord's Host, the Crimson Grove of the Moonwood, the Keepers of the Silverglen in Silverymoon and the halfling Warren Wardens all count themselves as members of the Circle, as do a number of individual and solitary druids in the areas around the Moonlands. The Circle of Silver works closely with the Heralds and the Harpers; indeed, several members of the Circle are known to wear Harper pins beneath their robes.   The membership of the Circle has recently been decimated by ruthless attacks from a group of evil Malar-worshipping lycanthropes calling themselves the People of the Black Blood. The surviving druids have retreated from the Moonwood to regroup. Rangers and others are petitioning the High Mage for assistance in dealing with this new threat, though Taern has not answered their call as yet.   There clearly are NOT canon sources but is good stuff none the less.
