The forests of Avalonia have thrived for centuries, and have always been inhabited by druids.  Legends say that the druids of old wielded great power and had expansive knowledge of natural and mystic lore.  Most people doubt that any of the modern day druids have the blood of the ancient druids in their veins, but they do possess a wealth of lore about the Avalonian woods.

The Sisters of Spring are an order of druids that tend to the cycle of life that is forever flowing through the forests.  This order is non-militant, and lives in harmony with nature, culling the week and promoting growth and renewal.  The Sisters live in camps throughout Avalonia, and prefer to avoid permanent dwellings such as houses.  This particular camp has established at the entrance to a series of caves beside a small waterfall.  While this camp is composed solely of Elves, druids of other races are not unheard of.

The Sisters keep bees for honey, and can also glean information from them about the growth of the forest's flowers and buds, as well as the impending weather.  They also harvest wild grapes to produce a potent wine that is popular with Avalonians.




Posted Image

The Sisters trade with townsfolk for bottles their wine.  They gather herbs and roots from the surrounding woodlands for food and medicinal purposes.  They have also been known to bring down fowl for their dinner tables.




Posted Image

The Sisters also trade for bread and cheese to supplement their diet of fruits, vegetables, nuts, honey and cider.

Fish from the stream are cooked and dried for the winter ahead.  The stream also provides water for cooking and bathing, and the Sisters fill cisterns in the caves below.


The Sisters live in harmony with the woods, as they have for centuries.  As custodians of the forest, they will care for the plants and animals and ensure that they continue to flourish.

Wow, it's beautifully simplistic. An ideal camp of Avalonians. It's also quite funny because all of the Druids look identical.

Nice.  Lovely looking lady elves.

Looks like your camera needs more light though.  Was it a giant snow storm in Wisconsin like it was in Minnesota today?

Great job, like the table and bee hives especially, but the waterfall also looks great! :thumbup:   Nice idea using a plume for a bird, looks quite realistic actually!

Those mushrooms are going to come in so handy!

I went back and forth on how to do the bee hives, but I'm happy with how they turned out.  I was inspired by the waterfalls in Challenge 5, but I wanted to come up with my own way of doing it.

There are actually at least 5 or 6 different heads there, even if they look pretty similar.  I know I used the same one for the two returning with the herbs and fowl, but they are sisters :wink:

I waited all week just to take photos outside for once, but it was overcast on Saturday, and then rain/snow all day on Sunday.
I actually bought two more lights for my photos.  I am using flood lights though instead of 100w to avoid the glare.  I may have to switch off.  I am much happier with the pictures though - they are less grainy than my previous ones.

I really wanted to add some birds in, without using the standard parrot/owl mold.  I wanted to have one of the druids returning with a kill, and this was easier than a brickbuilt deer carcass :laugh:

Thanks for all the comments!

Nice to see that at least the Elven ladies are doing what they are supposed to do. Maybe they should have another chat with their guys about invading freezing Mitgardia! Oh btw, nice build :wink:
