Druid Circle (Druid Subclasses)

Suggested Price $5.42

This document offers two new Druid subclasses for 5th Edition Dungeons & Dragons: the Circle of Bark and Leaves and the Circle of Holism.

Druids strive to become one with Nature, to protect it, to nurture it. This effort covers multiple aspects of Nature: the elements that compose it, the spirits that give it life, the beasts that live within it or the plants that grow off it.

However, not all aspects of Nature (elements, spirits, beasts and plants) are equally available to Druids: they cannot change into plants. The first subclass presented in this document fills this gap: the Druids of the Circle of Bark and Leaves can use their Wild Shape to transform into plants, and, as they progress further, they become somewhat tree-like.

The second subclass, the Circle of Holism, is for Druids that see the whole of nature as interconnected. These Druids care for all things at once, for the ecosystems rather than each individual beast or plant that inhabit them. These Druids adopt many small beasts and plants, carry them around and form a symbiotic relationship with them.

The appendices also include additional Awakened Tree statistics – for various types of tree from the simple sycamore to the wise oak. This expands the options for the vegetal Wild Shapes the Druids of Bark and Leaves can take.

Grow old as a red tingle and wise as an owl.

I read all of you subclasses as a point of curiosity and the class balance that you achieve is on par with Xanathars guide and the PHB, I would allow all of your classes in my game as they strike the perfect game balance. So many 3rd party class paths on the DM's Guild are very much broken, but I see that you strictly adhered to the wizards class design structure.

Excellent job! I would totally buy a book of all of your class paths in one PDF. I too am working on some of my own and I am very much impressed by yours so far. Keep up the good work.

Thanks a lot!

I have a few more subclasses (and other ideas) in the making. Once I finish them, I might condensate it all in one volume.

Rules Edition(s)
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
