I’m looking for ideas that justify a (Forgotten Realms) Druid taking a few levels of the Techsmith prestige class.
Techsmiths are devoted to the development of new inventions and the progression of achievement in the name of the Wonderbringer.
Followers of Gond believe in actions over words and results over intentions. They strive to hone their crafting abilities until they can create elegant and useful devices to suit any circumstances. So, a druid who also embraces technology & inventions (whilst still honouring & respecting nature) isn’t the traditional "Druid". But can it work?
