Blood Druid Background
Druids appeared in the post rifts world, and were a beacon to humanity in France
and surrounding areas. Humans were in a state of shock, and afraid of the
demons, mortal d-bees and fairy folk that emerged in large numbers in this area,
so going to the sanctuary offered by these human champions was a natural thing
to do in the chaotic earth of post-rifts. These humans had no idea about the
monsters that they had entrusted with their lives.
the turmoil of the post-rifts world, these druids found easy pickings for
manipulations and building their power base, helping those who needed it and
gaining their eternal gratitude. Their human face and soothing words made it
easy for them to gain followers who survived under their protection. Those who
resisted were persuaded under the influence of magic, if that failed a full
demonstration of these blood druids power was demonstrated and opposition to
them quickly subsided.
of the druids that emerged from Carnac and other standing stones wielded
enormous power. Their human face may literally have been a borrowed human face.
Long ago they lost the shackles of a mortal body. In the magic depleted world
after the end of the second age of magic on Earth, many mages tried to recreate
those glories, blood druids were one of these groups. They fed on mystically
charged human and even supernatural blood, purified and sanctified by the
powerful rituals they performed on it. They believed drinking their enemies'
blood gave them power over them, and bestowed on them great powers.
the frail human body was not able to cope with the vast energies surging through
it, causing massive mutations. Eventually these druids became more inhuman in
appearance, and inevitably in character. Needing to drink more blood to keep
their appearance and power. An endless cycle began of cheating death and
clinging on to life that the blood gave them. More powerful and grotesque
rituals grew. Their thirst and desire for eternal power twisted any morals they
may once have had. Those weaker than them were little more than tools to be
used, reduced to a fuel source. Blood druids used them as they willed for their
needs, sacrificing them in rituals so that they could tell the future or gain
even more power and extend their own life. These druids eventually lost their
frail bodies, becoming constructs of magical energy.
stop the body from disintegrating, the blood druids came up with a ritual, which
would ensure their immortality. This was removal of the head. Powerful magic was
performed to ensure the head magically survived, as long as it fed on the
enchanted blood. If the druid got tired of being a talking head, he would just
get himself another body. The newly acquired body would conveniently lose its
previous head during the magic ritual.
they came up with the mistletoe blood ritual. Blood with pure mistletoe, free of
any iron contamination, was enchanted. By drinking this blood, they created a
younger, healthier cloned body for themselves. Didn't matter much to them that
dozens of people may have been sacrificed during the ritual for their body. Only
pure mistletoe could be used, touching it with human hands was seen as
contamination, as such only pure gold tools were used to cut it, handle it and
hold the mystic blood. This mystic blood is drunk out of skulls preferably
sentient beings skulls.
Morte has never been the blood druid's capital, or where they congregated in
large numbers, this too has been another sham. A distraction for their enemies,
it was useful while it lasted, but it was only a ruse. Its loss to the nascent
forces of the Freebeing Nation is little more than an inconvenience. For the
Blood Druids have a far greater network in what used to be France than many have
though their carefully laid web of deceit nearly ended prematurely, with the
surprise NGR assault from the Bay of Biscay. They reacted quickly and managed to
respond in time by rallying those who stood in the NGR forces path to Paris.
Blood Druid leaders are certain their presence in Paris has been kept a secret.
Due to the surprise assault by the NGR from the sea, the Blood Druid schemes
have been brought forward and appropriate action taken to safeguard themselves
and as always to use the situation to their advantage. They are expecting all
sorts of visitors to Paris and with their Gargoyle allies they have prepared
welcomes for all.
the Gargoyles of Paris, The Blood Druids to have been quietly building and deep
beneath Paris is their capital.
