This week we thought it would be great to call back into the recesses of time, and leverage the structure we used to create a paladin order to instead collaboratively create a druidic circle. All categories marked with an X may have multiple entries. Also note that category 11 is the catch-all category for any juicy ideas unrepresented by any other category. Ex: 11) This circle of druids has a great enemy in the form of [BBEG]...This circle of druids is constantly eating [this fruit]…etc.
1) Name of the circle -
2) (Preferred) alignment of members -
3) Patron deity -
4) Mission -
5) Symbol/heraldry -
6) Why did they form?
7) Where are they founded? Could be more general rather than specific -
8x) Tenets - the principles they adhere to while performing their mission
9x) Notable figures in the order
10x) Historic achievements
11) Supplemental information: anything you want to contribute that doesn't have a specific entry above, or is in addition to an entry that is already filled. For example, if the Mission category has already been filled, you may include a secondary mission in this entry. If someone already posted a symbol for the circle itself, you might think about emblems for their ranks inside the circle.

I've never played a druid, don't have one in my group, and had one friend play one in the game I was a player in so I feel SUPER QUALIFIED to contribute to this! So I threw together a symbol! It's a globe cracked in half by a lightning bolt revealing a geode inside.
Long ago in the 3rd age of Dayeimbe the circle of the crystals used their power to build a great Atlantis-esc city, called Gemtopia, utilizing the power of crystals. Gemtopia was a center of peace and healing in a dangerous and unstable world. The cities needs for gemstones soon out grew their resources and over mining of the area caused the entire region to collapse, falling below the ground. Some say this was nature’s way of correcting the imbalance they created, others say it was divine punishment for losing their way, others just say it’s a myth to teach us about over ambition. Whatever the case, the circle does not use the crystals power to fuel cities and keep much of their arts secret to prevent others from doing so.
