Ancient History on Cowen Cove (also being consrtructed)
"Greetings, I am Valimas ShadowStar, Great Druid of Karamekios. I am ½
Shadow Elf, I am from the City of Stars and was quickly abandoned when they
found out I was ½ Human. The Shamans left me at an entrance to the overworld
(A cave) to die. After some time a band of druids on a daily nature walk heard my crying
and took me to Gelwen Grove (Which was my home for many years) and raised me as a druid.
Although I was treated different then all the other druids (because of my light blue skin,
White Hair, and pointed ears. which is my Shadow-elf appearence) I still considered it home.
Unlike the rest of the druids on Mystara I was never a Balancer, I gained powers of a druid
when I first started practicing the Arcane arts. I gained powers and spells more quickly
then any other balancer of my same rank. I am the only known druid in the year
AC 1006 who was never a balancer. As time went on I trained more often and
was more willing to leave the grove. When that day came my life began to start".
- In Mystara some druids are considered balancers, which are clerics
that upon reaching 9th level have the choice to chose to become a druid or to stay a Balancer. They can be Lawful Neutral,
True Neutral, or Chaotic Neutral. In the past few years in Mystara more AD&D Druids not Balencers have
be appearing more often. I have several in my Grove
- Cowen Cove (Coe-wen) is my new home, I am now Great Druid of Karamekios,
I need three 11th-level initiates of the 9th circle to attend me. So if you wish to attend please
say so in my Guestbook. There are openings for druids of all levels from 12
and under. 15 or higher I am sorry, but I can't let you in because I would have to look up to you.
Any 13th level you would have to challenge me, but if you don't challenge me
you are welcome to stay at my Grove. I have 5 PC druids in my Grove so far
the rest of them are NPCs. So if you are a druid and you want to join a grove please sign my
- The High Legion is a group of Good PCs looking to fight
evil PCs, so if you have an Evil Clan please tell us we are looking for a new enemy.
For more info on the High Legion look to Links. Ashtar is the leader of our clan. Ashtar is also the most
powerful of the group mostly of his highly magical sword and his Grand Mastery
of the Bastard Sword. Although me and him know that we aren't as powerful as we thought
do to a Crazy DM and his version of a pit fiend.
Although I act independent most of the time I do enjoy the company of other High Legion members....Well atleast everyone but BlueBeard
Nickus is the annoying gnome of the group. He makes all kinds of inventions and half of them don't even work, but he is a loyal
and trust worthy friend. BlueBeard is pretty funny to hang around with because of his drunkness, but he is untrust worthy and
mostly can't...won't be a good friend. He is a trigger happy moron. Moredhel is also fun to be around
because of his personality. He is young (well atleast for an elf) and full of mischief, but when called for he will be loyal. oh yes and
how can I forget about Cantrip. Cantrip is also a Mischeif person like Moredhel, except Cantrip tends to play small pranks on people.
Of course none of them are harmful..well some of them aren't. Other than that I don't know him that well. Last thing about the High Legion,
if the High Legion is on your side there is a pretty good chance you'll win. Thats about it for the High Legion. For complete information of the High Legion
click on The High Legion or go to Links.
- All Groves have special powers (well atleast most of them do).
Cowen Cove has three powers which will be explained later. Some Groves have
lesser powers, Greater Power, Sacred Stones, or something special that the DM creates.
In order for a Grove to be magical something very rare had to have happened there,
like a visit from a Deity, the birth of a unicorn, or a dryad or nymph's long-time residence
in the grove.(Look to page 112 of TSR's Complete Druid's Handbook for more details).
Like I said Cowen Cove has several powers because of a birth of a unicorn.
Those powers are a Scying Pool, Know Alignment by Aura, Peaceful Stones, and a
a "Warp Stone is under construction" (A warp stone is a stone that will warp you from one warp stone to another
anywhere in the world where another warp stone is placed).
- The Shadow Circle is a secretly organized group of Evil Druids.
Not all the druids in Shadow Circle are evil, but any druid in the Shadow Circle leans to the evil side
more than being balanced. I was once captured by the Shadow Circle and nearly burned at Stake,
luckly for me I had money and a near by theif got me out. Once I was loose I
basically destroyed that particular meeting site and killed at least 7 of them.
Therefore I am now Wanted! by every single one of them in most of Mystara.
If there are any druids that belong to the Shadow Circle out there please write in my
Guestbook or E-mail me like I said earlier We're looking for enemys.
