Druids: Have been removed, in the second age Saros had many needless campaigns, one of which was wiping out the largest threat to his southern allies, the 'druidic infestation', Druids from all over the land were called to various natural emergencies caused by Sarosian agents, and when a druid population was properly recorded there was a cleansing. The effect of this no one expected, the raw fields of magic, explained in the Magic section, were altered in a sympathetic way, pouring more power into its druid field, empowering the last remaining Druids magical aspects to unknown heights, several of these Druids destroyed entire empires before Sarosian forces could bring them down. The druidic cataclysm ended when the final druid, a Lizard Folk who had brought several elder wurms under his banner assaulted Saros' capitol Hami'ra. Hami'ra was destroyed, the last druid and its connection to the prime material plane disapeard, and the third age began. For more information on the story of this please see the history of the second age.
