The druids were sorcerer-priests who resided on the Western continent of Andowyne. There were two main orders of druids: the peaceful Senkadi, and the violent Brithemain. The latter came to serve the Demon Queen Bavmorda. Although they were nature-worshippers, the ancient druids wanted nothing to do with the high fey Cherlindrea, whom they regarded as dangerous. Long before the reign of Bavmorda, a group of druids erected the Standing Stones east of the Nelwyn Valley.
