The Dryads are a primary species appearing in Age of Warscape and Age of Warscape: Origins. They are one of the ten dominant races on Uloff, and a commonly appearing race in southern Moridahn, especially in the Therisar region. As being deeply connected to nature and the environment, the Dryads use their unique, Elemental magic to aide their allies in combat. They are allied with The Arbiters, and are a selectable race for the faction.

History[edit | edit source]

The Dryad Emblem

The Dryads are said to be beings of nature itself. It is said that when the Dryads are born, a tree grows somewhere near it, and when it dies, the tree will die. They were led by an immortal being known as "K'abu", who was said to the the first Dryad. He eventually began to inhabit a large tree, which the rest of the Dryad race prompted to live in, as well. Eventually, the race began to build houses and buildings, and soon built an entire city in the tree. This city eventually became the Dryad Race's capital, and was named Esari. When the Elves awoke from their hyper-sleep, young Dryads would often play tricks and mess with them. The Elves luckily did not mind this as much, as most pranks and tricks were usually harmless. The two races eventually formed a mutual friendship with one another.

One day, dark energy began to corrupt the southern side of Uloff due to Strog'ar's fall. Dark energies began to spread to the southern shores of Moridahn, which terrorized the Dryads. Out of fear, the race hid in the city of Esari to avoid being hurt by the dark energy. Some ventured out, but they did not return. It was a dark time, now, with fear to be their tyrant. K'abu had decided that this had gone too far, and that the race could not live in fear for the rest of their lives. Due to the corruption of the enviroment caused by the dark energy, K'abu swore to remove the energy from Moridahn. He had then sacrificed his physical state to become one with nature itself in attempt to push the energy away. This was successful, but resulted in K'abu's death. Therisar, their homeland, was cured of the dark-influence. The corruption had spread far enough to lands like Darkglade and Sairos Steppes, but were also cured by K'abu's sacrifice.

A Dryad named Surin then stepped up as the next leader of the Dryad race. He had announced that he was being guided by the spirit of K'abu, and was the only individual that K'abu would speak to. The Dryad race knew that this would be true, and proclaimed Surin as the High Prophet of the Dryad race. Surin announced that the corruption that had killed K'abu and almost destroyed the enviroment was caused by the Jaar race, which infuriated the Dryads. The race eventually turned to the Elves for guidance, who then directed the Dryads to the Human race; the archenemy of the Jaar. The two races then formed an alliance with one another in hopes that they'd both be useful to the destruction of the Jaar.

Appearance[edit | edit source]


Dryads have a mostly humanoid appearance, and can measure to about 5 feet. They have an inability to grow facial hair at all. Their hair is mostly green, but can also vary from blue, yellow, or orange. They have a basic Humanoid upper-half, somewhat resembling an Elf's body frame, and their lower half consists of deer-like legs and tail. It is rare for a Dryad to have a Human-like lower half.

Dryads are easily noticeable by their green-tinted skin that slightly resembles and feels like bark. They also occasionally have palmate antlers protruding from their heads, and have various twigs and leaves protruding from their bodies. They also have luminescent green eyes.

Personality[edit | edit source]

Most Dryads are calm, and will only enter a state of rage when the environment around them is harmed or damaged. They have extreme patience, as they are known to live for hundreds of years. They are typically very accepting to others, and will welcome anyone with open arms.

Leadership & Government[edit | edit source]

While their speaker and physically seen leader is High Prophet Surin, their true leader is the spirit of K'abu. Sometimes, his spirit speaks to the High Prophet, rarely speaking to non-prophets. K'abu helps guide Surin on leading the race, and gives him directions and advice on making decisions.

The government of the Dryad is unknown by many, but is supposedly operated under a Theocratic government. The apparent leader of the race is an individual proclaimed as the "High Prophet", who is able to speak to the spirit of their former leader, K'abu. The people have no power against the High Prophet, and only do other prophets of K'abu have a say in the High Prophet's actions.

Culture[edit | edit source]

The Dryads are highly spiritual and soft-spoken, and enjoy gardening and landscaping. They are known to create gardens and floral creations, and love to display their creations proudly.
