The Green Circle believes that true knowledge of Sapo can only be achieved through knowledge of the self and the self’s place within the natural world. They frequently refer to the seeking of this knowledge as ‘listening to the secret voices of the trees’. However, it isn’t enough to only know the self, one must also expand the self by increasing its knowledge. Some members of the Green Circle have chosen to master exotic weaponry, others delve into the esoteric knowledge of the natural world’s place within existence; Sapo lets each individual find their own path to greater knowledge.
Tenets of Faith Edit
The Green Circle worships Sapo through self knowledge and improvement and studying the power of nature and everything's place within nature. To these ends the Green Circle seeks out sites of power, unique creatures, and natural beauty, all to learn their secrets. Leaders of the Green Circle encourage its members to push the limits of their inner power by mastering one or more fields of study.
The Green Circle is a druidic college located in a grove within the thickly forested hills some 50 miles or so away from Venza. Its official name is Elluemara which translates directly from Elven into "The Riddle of Green", but it is generally referred to as Nature's Labyrinth due to the confusing set of twisting buildings and trees that make up the compound.
The Green Circle is about 300 members strong although due to the exploratory nature of the College generally less than 100 members visit the physical college during any given month. Most members tend to be humans, halflings or elves but other humanoids are not particularly uncommon. Lay members tend towards the adept and expert classes while the clergy and other persons of note are most commonly druids, monks and rangers.
