Lone Wolf Multiplayer - Free Download - Cener Druid of Ruel Review

There has been plenty of free downloadable content from Mongoose to support the Lone Wolf Multiplayer RPG. Cener Druid of Ruel is one such download that was available from Signs and Portents #81, starting on page 20. You can get it at
This addition to LWM is a curious one. This is the only evil character class to be detailed as a player character would. This is curious because, as the rules are written, NPCs do not get a combat "turn" like in most RPGs. So when in combat would a Cener Druid get the chance to use any of these skills? I don't know the answer to that. Even in the published adventure, Radak's Revenge, the Cener Druid presented in the adventure does not have any of the abilities listed in this write-up.

Still, I feel that the authors did a nice join in detailing the Cener Druid. The powers that the druid has are unique and dark. Cener Druids are truly worthy adversaries when they can curse a PC with a disease that leave them bedridden, call roots from the ground to strange him, or create undead servants!

It's neat to see an evil Druid... I know when I first encountered this idea, it seemed very strange to me. How could somebody use nature for evil? Well, the Cener Druid is proof that it's possible!

1LR Review: 15 out of 20 - It's a Hit!
