Tyranny of Dragons
Main Page → Organizations
The Emerald Enclave is a far-ranging group that opposes threats to the natural world and helps others survive in the wilderness. Branches of the organization are scattered throughout Faerûn and often operate in isolation from the others. This existence teaches the Enclave’s members a fierce self-reliance and mastery of certain fighting and survival skills.
A ranger of the Enclave might be hired to lead a caravan through a treacherous mountain pass or the frozen tundra of Icewind Dale. A druid might volunteer to help a village prepare for a long, brutal winter. Barbarians and druids who live as hermits might appear from nowhere to help defend a town against marauding orcs.
Beginning in isolation over a thousand years ago, the Emerald Enclave has grown and splintered into several groups, tasked with protecting sacred wilderness all throughout Faerûn. They have recently banded together to concert their efforts against those who seek to destroy the natural world, specifically against great evil and magic.
In the last hundred years, in the wake of the Spell-Plague and the Sundering, the Enclave has included in their mission to protect the civilizations that call Faerûn home in order to appease their greater goal of balance throughout the world.
The Emerald Enclave seeks to preserve the natural order of the world, fighting to both maintain civilized boundaries and hedge out those who would encroach upon them. They are not opposed to civilization or progress, but they strive to keep it in balance with the wild, keeping civilization and the wilderness from destroying one another. They seek to root out and destroy all that is unnatural, hating most those that defy or mock the natural order, such as undead and aberrations. Lastly, they strive for ultimate balance between the elements, fighting against those that would bear one as a weapon against the others.
Members of the Emerald Enclave are spread far and wide, and usually operate in isolation. They learn to depend on themselves more than others. Survival in a harsh world also demands great fortitude and mastery of the surrounding elements. Members of the Enclave who dedicate themselves to helping others survive the perils of the wilderness are more social than others who are charged with defending sacred glades and preserving the natural balance.
