ABOUT

Nature can manifest as terrible natural disasters and frightening beasts. It can also occasionally form a madremonte. These powerful beings have been mistaken for goddesses in the past. Given their power over nature, it is not surprising to see why.

A typical madremonte tends to be vigilant about protecting her domain, and militant about punishing those who would transgress against the flora and fauna within that domain. It is not uncommon for a madremonte to form armies out of the land’s fiercest beasts and plants and pushing away any so-called civilizations so that they don’t disturb the natural environment.

Though they can be seen as cold and unforgiving, madremontes are typically kind and gentle spirits when not provoked. A madremonte can even collaborate and coexist with druid enclaves and the occasional elven community, so long as they follow her stringent guidelines and lend aid when necessary.
