Abilities: Forest Sense, Speak With Plants (at will), Night Sight (RQ6: pg 312-316) More powerful version of life sense. Plant Control (Within POWx2-POWx5) can cause plants to grow rapidly, tangle the enemy, move the branches. Use Forest Sense vs opponents appropriate skill. Outside her grove this can be done with Formidable penalty. Tree Home (can from into a spirit and disappear into her tree),
Dimension Door [3x/day] Within her forest max 500 meters outside it can use the Forest Sense to use these.
When in danger, they will return to their own tree, after leading the threat further away by moving from tree to tree, and then using Dimension door to jump ‘home’. However, they are confined to an area no further than 400 metres from this tree (1320 feet/¼ mile).
One with the Tree (if her tree gets damaged so does she and vice versa). If a dryad is somehow forced beyond this area, she will slowly weaken, losing 1 point from STR, POW, and CON every hour. When the first characteristic reaches 0, typically STR, the dryad collapses. When the second reaches 0, typically CON, she loses consciousness. Finally, when the third characteristic, POW, is brought to 0, she dies. If returned to her tree before death claims her, she regenerates 1 point in each characteristic per minute. The dryad’s tree, while large and old, does not radiate magic, and other than size, is not distinguishable
from other large oaks in the area. If this tree were to be found by unscrupulous individuals, they could hold much control over the dryad, for any damage done to the tree is also suffered by her, typically being applied to the chest. She would, however, defend her tree with frenzied vigour.
