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!
