Lawful Good Druid?


Advice

The Exchange

Does anyone know of a trait, feat, racial ability, etc. that will allow a druid to be LG?

I though an Exalted (prestige class) of Erastil with a druid base class would be a pretty cool theme to play with. But Exalteds have to match the alignment of their deity exactly and druids have to have a neutral component to their alignment.

So far all I’ve found is the planar extremist archetype, but the “outer planes” motif really doesn’t mesh with Erastil as a deity.


The mythic ability beyond morality would, but it's a 3rd tier ability. Another option would be the 3rd party feat Deviant Worshiper, but I'm not sure since its geared towards clerics, maybe you could get a variant of it that's for druids?


Planar Extremist seems to pretty much do what you want.

I think that I'd try the time honoured tradition of asking your GM :-).

A Druidic Exalted of Erastil makes perfect sense to me and as a GM I'd allow it in a heartbeat at absolutely no cost (mechanically, you lose more than you gain. At least if you're a normal druid)

Of course if its for PFS I think that you're out of luck.

As someone who thinks alignment restrictions are a load of bullocks, I'd allow it in a heartbeat. Doesn't help with PFS, but your prospects are potentially quite good for a home game.


Other options:

1. Claim a Nature Priest doesn't require neutral alignment as the other alignment restrictions could overwrite the preexisting ones.

2. Play a knock-off Druid! Maagambyan Initiate Arcanist, Feral Champion Warpriest, Grasping Vine Wood Spirit Shaman, nature-loving Cleric...

Yeah, Nature Priest would have been ideal.

This is for PFS, so unfortunately it has to be “by the (non-mythic) book.” I like to play Prestige Classes, and haven’t played an Exalted yet. And I don’t normally play druids either. I was hoping someone new of some obscure, oddly specific item, something like the trait that lets Aasimars be NG monks. Ah well.


I love this concept. Alignment restrictions are stupid. I'd hand-wave this in a New York second. Talk to your GM, he'll probably let you do it.

Again, this is for PFS. The GM's hands are tied and cannot simply waive a restriction because they feel like it.

Missed that part. Stupid PFS legal! *kicks a chair*


Like Cabbage said, Planar Extremist is as close as you can get I think. A druid archetype that specifically lets you be lawful good, even if it's pretty bizarre by druid standards.
