The Circle are a group of Druids whose power is linked to the Devourer Wurm—a primordial god of annihilation and primal aggression that threatens to return to the world and destroy everything. It is the role of the Circle to prevent this from happening, mostly by keeping civilization in check. The Circle is not a benevolent faction and will kill indiscriminately to further its ends, since ultimately they seek to prevent the end of the world. Circle's theme is nature magic. The Circle warlocks run the gamut from stone shapers, to weather wizards, bestial brutes, healers and beast handlers. They have access to fire, ice and lightning attacks and are most commonly thought of as a speedy hit and run faction.
