The three leaders of the Decay Conclave were once Nature Protectorates. On a mission to study and turn back the evil seeping out of Fethath they were corrupted. They gave up the ways of Nature, wielding Dark Nature Energy in its stead. After three top druids succumbed to the evils of Fethath, the Nature Protectorates forbade any more investigations into Maar Gosvah. Any so-called "re-balancing efforts" efforts would need to be done through others.
Beyond its dark leaders, the Decay Conclave is comprised of those seeking to use druidic spells requiring Dark Nature Energy. The only way to do this is to worship Melrith. Wielding what leads to Dark Nature is not for the faint of heart. It involves combining evil energy with nature energy, with the latter being destroyed in the process; the rapid decay of fey lifeforms and plant-life the result. Even the most evil empires need crops to feed the masses, so they are largely against defoliation magic. The Decay Conclave is one of the organizations out there that offer protection for those seeking the path of the Blighter.
The Decay Conclave are not content with just haunting Maar Gosvah or the areas around this forest. They travel the universe seeking dark nature magic. The first ironmaws to appear on Bal-Kriav came from Vemmon's journeys in the Abyss. The dreaded ironmaws can now be found in other areas of Brucrumus. Each were either taken there by the Decay Conclave or by their servants. Black Wood was responsible for transplanting several ironmaws from Maar Gosvah to Maegorion.
