SPECIAL TRAITS

  • Nature’s Champion. The Living Jungle druid has advantage on saving throws against the spells and other abilities of aberrations.
  • Speak with Animals. The Living Jungle druid can speak with the beasts of the jungle as if they shared a language.
  • Spellcasting. The Living Jungle druid is an 8th-level spellcaster. Its spellcasting ability is Wisdom (spell save DC 13, +5 to hit with spell attacks). The Living Jungle druid has the following druid spells prepared:
  • Wild Shape (2/Day). The Living Jungle druid magically assumes the form of a tiger and can stay in this shape for up to 4 hours. The druid can revert to its normal form earlier by using a bonus action on its turn. The druid automatically reverts to its true form if it falls unconscious or dies. While in tiger form, the druid’s statistics are replaced by those of a tiger, except the druid retains its alignment, personality, and Intelligence, Wisdom, and Charisma scores. The druid’s attacks in tiger form are magical.

ABOUT

After an absence of 400 years, druids have returned to the Living Jungle. The druids of the Circle of Orchids seek to restore the jungle to its original natural splendor by combating the vine lords and tendril puppets and preventing Yawchaka from being overrun by abnormal plants and aberrant beasts. But among their number are some that have fallen under the Green Walker’s influence and are unwittingly sharing the druids’ plans with their new master.
