Circle of Leth
The Forest of Lethyr is home to one of the most powerful druidic hierarchies in all Faerûn—the followers of the Nentyarch, who traditionally governs affairs in Lethyr (and the Great Dale by default). They are known collectively as the Circle of Leth, and they are served by the Nentyar hunters, a strong society of rangers, scouts, and warriors who carry out the commands of the druid circle.
The Circle of Leth comprises three concentric rings, forming orders. Five high druids make up the first ring, standing just below the Nentyarch. The high druids advise the ruler of the Circle and are teachers and mentors to those below them. Nin druid masters make up the second ring and are the most active in searching out threats to the forest and the dale. They command the Nentyar Hunters in times of war; currently, several are engaged in a desperate battle to preserve what can be saved of the nearby Rawlinswood, working to stop the depredations of the Rotting Man and the blightlords. The third and most numerous ring is composed of the Circle’s initiates, low-ranking druids and novices who serve among the Nentyar Hunters or apprentice The Church of Kossuth themselves to a high druid or druid master, as the Circle requires.
