In 1245, the then mortal Aredhel founded the guild of Nature Protectorates. "Nature Protectorates", are the leading druids of a particular region. They have the duty of watching nature and the forces that dwell in their respective domain. Under these leading druids are many other druids, rangers, and other creatures that assist in guarding and gathering information for their Nature Protectorate leader. The druids often help the peoples of their land, like predicting weather for farmers, ending droughts, and curbing the actions of wilder druids that don't toe the path of The Balance.
The Nature Protectorates meet annually to discuss their regions and other druidic matters. This meeting is called the Glade Summit.
The druids of this guild are against all things Dark Nature. In 1795, a survey of Maegorion was undertaken by Nature Protectorate Ararthand. This led to a continued study and surveillance of this Dark Timber Migration.
Most druids oppose tampering with the Web of Magic. They are not attuned to arcane energy like mages, but they know well of its destructive nature from the histories of Gulimbor with the Gulimbor Catacylsm, and the story of the redeemed druid Sakazrân.
The Nature Protectorates did not have Underdark representatives until late in the Third Epoch. In 1831, a Svirfneblin named Chisel Shinszelmoggit, was selected as the first Underdark Nature Protectorate.
In 1751, Ararthand, the Nature Protectorate of Cinazan, was murdered by government agents of the Khazarkar Empire. The Amigar Case resulted in a Region Censure of Cinazan. This made it so no sanctioned Nature Protectorate could be appointed to the region for fifty years.
Not an enemy, the Einglach is often the Nature Protectorates biggest rival. In general, the Einglach's "Fey Superiority" view that is at odds with the ideals of the Nature Protectorates. Certain regions of the world are under the watch of these two nature orders, and by agreement they usually stay out of each other's domains.
