ďA Druid in training must be a bard before he is a priest, for music is one of the keys to the laws of nature. We all run our lives, even those in the grand cities of Icaron and the caravans of the Taroh, on the song of life, and end them on the song of death. Our lives are tiny beats in the epic of nature, and we must dance these steps in time with the ever changing beat to survive.Ē

~Eonas, the Sage of Seasons, King of the Summer Court, Queen of the Winter Moon

The Druidís represent a druidic influence in the Priest (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=189564); more similar to a cleric of natural domains, with druidic class features, than what one would imagine a druid being. They usually gain their powers directly from a nature god, rather than indirect worship of nature, which many druids use. However, those Druids that do gain their powers from nature itself, even if indirectly, are not uncommon.

Weapon Proficiencies: The Druid gains proficiency with all simple weapons, and one martial weapon of the Druidís choice. The Druid is proficient with all natural weapons granted by this class. They gain no proficiency with any shields or armor.

By Will Word or Wit: When the Druid takes their first level in this class, they must choose whether to have their Spellcasting be based off of Intelligence, Charisma, or Wisdom. After making this choice, they may not switch it.

Spellcasting: A Druid casts divine spells which are drawn from his Domainís spell lists. The Druid may cast any spell that she knows (I.E. she is a spontaneous caster).

To cast a spell, the Druid must have a casting ability score equal to at least 10 + the spell level. The Difficulty Class for a saving throw against a Druidís spell is 10 + 1/2 Caster Level + the Druidís casting ability modifier. The Druidís casting ability score is the ability score they chose with the By Will Word or Wit class feature.

Like other spellcasters, the Druid can cast only a certain number of spells of each spell level per day. His base daily spell allotment is given on the above table. In addition, she receives bonus spells per day if she has a high casting ability score.

Wildshaping (Su): The Druid may shift her body into an aspect of nature. She may only ever remain in one aspect at a time. Entering an aspect is a move action. The aspect remains until the end of the encounter. The Druid may only enter an aspect once per encounter, and for up to a minute at a time outside of combat. At first level, the Druid only has access to the Predator or the Prey aspects. She gains access to the Aerial, Quadruped, Aquatic, and Woodland aspects at fifth level. Next, she gains access to the Tree, Vine, and Flowering aspects at ninth level. Finally, she gains access to the Fire, Water, Air, and Earth aspects at thirteenth level.

Domains: At first level, the Druid gains access to the Plant and Animal domains, as well as one domain of either Air, Earth, Fire or Water. She also gains the Domain Powers granted by the Domains. If the Druid gains a Devotion feat, she may use it an additional number of times per day equal to 3 + his casting ability score modifier, as if she could turn undead. The Druid cannot turn undead. Starting at sixth level, the Druid gains access to an additional domain from either Air, Earth, Fire or Water, including spells and the domain power. She also gains access to the Domain Powers granted from this class, but as a Druid equal to his Level minus 6. She gains access to an additional Domain from that list at twelfth level, and gains the domain power, and gains access to the Domain Powers as a Druid of his level minus twelve. She gains access to the final Domain at eighteenth level, with the domain power, and gains access to the Domain Powers as a Druid of his level minus eighteen.

Smite the Non-Believer (Su): Starting at second level, the Druid may smite an opponent within 15 feet as a swift action, once per encounter. The Druid may make a melee touch attack against that opponent (regardless of range), and deal his weapon damage plus 1d6 damage per four Druid levels she possesses (minimum +1d6). She gains a bonus on the touch attack equal to his casting ability score modifier. At twelfth level, the Druid may spend a standard action in order to do this as a full attack against one opponent, with all the previously mentioned bonuses. She must spend a use per encounter for every attack made in said full attack. If the opponent worships the same god as the Druid, the attack deals no damage.

Wildstriding (Ex): Starting at second level, the Druid may move through any sort of undergrowth (such as natural thorns, briars, overgrown areas, and similar terrain) at her normal speed and without taking damage or suffering any other impairment. This includes magical undergrowth.

Domain Power (Su): Starting at third level, the Druid gains access to additional powers based on his domains (See; Domain Powers (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showpost.php?p=10487941&postcount=2) section).

Animal Affinity (Su): Starting at third level, the Druid can improve the attitude of an animal. This ability functions just like a Diplomacy check made to improve the attitude of a person. The Druid rolls 1d20 and adds her caster level and her casting ability score modifier to determine the wild empathy check result. The typical domestic animal has a starting attitude of indifferent, while wild animals are usually unfriendly. To use this ability, the Druid and the animal must be able to study each other, which means that they must be within 30 feet of one another under normal conditions. Generally, influencing an animal in this way takes 1 minute but, as with influencing people, it might take more or less time. A Druid can also use this ability to influence a magical beast with an Intelligence score of 1 or 2, but she takes a -4 penalty on the check.

Summon Nature (Sp): Starting at fourth level, the Druid may cast the Summon Natureís Ally spell, the precise spell being the spell that corresponds with the highest spell level the Druid can cast, up to 3 times per day. The casting time and all other components of the spell remains the same. The summoned creatures automatically fade at the end of the encounter, if they are used in combat.

Plant Affinity (Su): Starting at sixth level, the Druid can improve the attitude of an animate plant, even if it isnít sentient. This ability functions just like a Diplomacycheck made to improve the attitude of a person. The Druid rolls 1d20 and adds her caster level and her casting ability score modifier to determine the wild empathy check result. The typical animate plant has a starting attitude of indifferent. To use this ability, the Druid and the plant must be able to study each other, which means that they must be within 30 feet of one another under normal conditions. Generally, influencing a plant in this way takes 1 minute but, as with influencing people, it might take more or less time. If the Druid has convinced the animated plant to become friendly or higher with the Druid, and another creature is controlling the animated plant, that creature loses control of the animate plant, and the plant becomes free, albeit still allied to the Druid.

Animal Companion (Ex): Starting at ninth level, the Druid gains an Animal Companion, as the Druid class feature, with a Druid (http://www.d20srd.org/srd/classes/druid.htm#theDruidsAnimalCompanion) level equal to her ECL-4. She may automatically choose an animal that is on the alternative list of animals, presuming she qualifies for it. In addition, the animal companion gains all benefits of bonus hit dice from the Druidís effective druid levels, which includes size increase, bonus feats, and ability increases. The Druidís animal companion cannot grow larger than two size categories bigger than the Druid.

Lady of Storms (Su): Starting at twelfth level, the Druid may summon a natural thunderstorm, once per day, as a full round action. It lasts until the end of the encounter, or for up to ten minutes, if used outside of combat. The Thunderstorm affects up
to a 40 foot radius surrounding the Druid. The area affected by the Thunderstorm becomes difficult terrain, and all creatures within the area of the thunderstorm, besides the Druid, take 3d6 electricity damage per round. The Druid may shift her attention to one creature within the area of the Thunderstorm, and that creature takes an additional amount equal to the Druidís casting ability score modifier times two, as long as the Druid has her attention upon that creature. The Druid may shift attention as a move action. She must spend a standard action each round to keep the storm working, and cannot move from the square where she started the storm, or the storm automatically fades. If she takes any damage, the storm automatically ends.

Elemental Affinity (Su): Starting at thirteenth level, the Druid can improve the attitude of an Elemental. They need not speak the same language. This ability
functions just like a Diplomacy check made to improve the attitude of a person. The druid rolls 1d20 and adds her caster level and her casting ability score modifier to determine the wild empathy check result. The typical elemental has a starting attitude of indifferent. To use this ability, the Druid and the elemental must be able to study each other, which means that they must be within 30 feet of one another under normal conditions. Generally, influencing an elemental in this way takes 1 minute but, as with influencing people, it might take more or less time. If the Druid has convinced the elemental to become friendly or higher with the Druid, and another creature is controlling the elemental, that creature loses control of the elemental, and the elemental becomes free, albeit still allied to the Druid.

Skystriding (Su): Starting at sixteenth level, the Druid may gain a fly speed equal to her base land speed, for 1d4+1 rounds, as the wind lifts her into the sky with a gentle hand, with a maneuverability of perfect. Activating this ability is a move action. After the duration ends, she must wait 1d4-1 rounds before using it again. If she already possessed a fly speed upon using this ability, the maneuverability increases to perfect, and the speed increases by a number equal to her base land speed. She gains a +4 bonus to all Bull Rush, Trip, and Grapple checks, to avoid or begin such a maneuver while in the air.

Web of Life (Su): Starting at eighteenth level, the Druid may weave a web of life, as a full round action. She may include up to ten creatures in the web. She may transfer a number of hit points from any creature within the web equal to twice her casting ability score modifier to any other living creature in the web. She may not kill a creature with this ability; it may not be used to drop them to below 1 hit point. Transferring hit points through this ability is a swift action, and may only transfer hit points from one single creature to another at a time. A creature is not aware of the transference directly unless told by the Druid. The web lasts for up to 1 hour, or until a member of the web goes at least 1 mile from the Druidís location. The Druid may use this ability at will.

Divine Mastery (Sp): Starting at level twenty, the Druid may call upon nature and receive answer. She asks for miracles, and nature herself delivers. She may, once per day as a 10 minute ritual, cast the Miracle spell. She may not choose to cast a lower level spell with this effect. She may not create any material goods with this ability. She must still pay any material or experience components of the spell.

That ally gains a Deflection bonus to armor class equal to the Druidís casting ability score modifier for one round. After using this ability, the Druid must wait 1d4-1 rounds before using this ability again.

Gust (Su): As a move action, the Druid may force all creatures in a 60 foot line to make a Reflex save (DC 10 + Druid levels + Casting ability score modifier) or be pushed back 20 feet. A successful save halves the distance. Creatures pushed back take 2d6 damage per 5 feet moved. After using this ability, the Druid must wait 5 rounds before using it again.

Earth Movement Speeds: 40 Burrow speed, 15 foot base land speed.
Ability Score Boosts: +6 Constitution, +4 Strength, +2 Wisdom. Enhancement bonuses.
Natural Attacks: 2 Slams 1d8.
Passive Bonuses: +4 Insight bonus to Climb, Balance, Concentration, Jump, and Survival. +3 Natural armor bonus.
Active Abilities:
Mountainborn (Su): As a swift action, the Druid may increase her size by two size categories, gain Damage Reduction 10/Adamantine, and a +8 bonus to Strength for 3 rounds. After the effect fades, the Druid must wait 5 rounds before using this ability again.

Desert-storm (Su): As a full round action, the Druid may summon a great sandstorm. The sandstorm takes up an area of 30 feet by 30 feet, and 20 feet tall. All creatures in the area take 4d6 bludgeoning damage per round, as they are buffeted by the sand. Any creature that spends 3 rounds in the sandstorm becomes blinded, as the condition, as long as they remain in the sandstorm, and 2 rounds after they leave it. The sandstorm may be moved 10 feet in any direction, besides up, by the Druid, as a move action.

Boulders (Su): As a move action, the Druid may summon a great hulking boulder of some stony substance. He may throw the boulder as a standard action, which functions as a ranged touch attack, with a range of 30 feet, and deals 5d6 damage, plus the Druidís Strength modifier.

This class...
Does EXACTLY what I like. It allows for huge versatility; the combination of spells and aspects for every situation is just huge.
However, I think the overall effect is a bit too powerful. It's a nearly casting class (change 'besides' to 'after' in the spellcasting text if you were planning on dropping a caster level), and the many buffs the aspects grant may very well result in buff-stacking. It's a good thing that the aspects grant enhancement bonuses, though, rather than inherent bonuses or other easy-to-stack stuff.
I'm a bit worried about the class' blastability. The Priest class doesn't get many spells per day, so it's far more efficient to just buff up and enter the fray than pick damaging spells.
The Aspects all grant special 1/encounter powers, so it would stand to reason that in order to be useful as a blaster, you'd have to shift from aspect to aspect, running out of Elemental 1/encounter powers pretty quickly.

A few more notes:
-The class has, as entry requirement, the feat Animal Affinity. At second level, the class grants, as a class ability, Animal Affinity.
-The prestige class can be entered from lvl 9 onward. This is a little late, to my taste.
-Maybe the class could be more rounded as a normal class option rather than a Prestige Class. This would allow a bit slower progression, but since this class is so incredibly different from the Priest class, it would also allow people to flesh out their own characters a bit more rather than going 'I used to be a Priest, but now I'm a True Druid.'
-The name... 'True Druid' might be a bit... Ehm... Self-satisfied? By playing this PrC, you're basically telling other druids that they're not really druids... But that you are. That they're... Not good enough, or something like that.

Awesome! :smallsmile:
Yeah, I was worried about the power level. Part of why I kept the bonuses as Enhancement, and the passive abilities as mostly Competence bonuses, which are from what I understand, the easiest bonus type to get.

A good point. The True Druid as it stands doesn't really have a lot of blasting capability, which is true. It does have the ability to blast, but it probably doesn't have the spell slots. However, in terms of spells in general, the True Druid doesn't really have a lot going for it either. For buffing, the True Druid would need a Domain that grants buffing, which it just doesn't have the resources to get, unless it chose the war domain, and even the war domain doesn't really have that many good buffing spells.


A few more notes:

I will change it to Bestial Affinity.


-The prestige class can be entered from lvl 9 onward. This is a little late, to my taste.
I guess I can understand that. Shifting it down to a lower level is not difficult at all.


-Maybe the class could be more rounded as a normal class option rather than a Prestige Class. This would allow a bit slower progression, but since this class is so incredibly different from the Priest class, it would also allow people to flesh out their own characters a bit more rather than going 'I used to be a Priest, but now I'm a True Druid.'
I might do this. It could take a little while to get done, however.

I was just trying to get a name that was different from Druid but wasn't super weird. *shrug*

List of changes:
Changed into a base class Priest offshoot.
Has fixed domains now (you automatically get Plant and Animal, and then choose between Air, Earth, Fire, and Water as you level).
Some of the class features had to be switched around to fit the power level.
Animal Companion level took a hit (only minor; I wanted to make sure the class wasn't so powerful, and full level animal companion seemed kind of over the top).
Name changed to just regular Druid now.
Added in the capstone from Priest, since the class would have been otherwise missing one.
