Ord an Nádúira
Ord an Nádúira – literally “The Order of Nature” or “The Natural Order”.
This branch of Gaia’s followers believe that civilization is basically a plague upon the earth. They believe humans and other races should live in harmony with nature as many elven and fae communities do, or at least live a more nomadic existence of some more primitive human and humanoids tribes. They believe that cities are scars upon the Earth, full of corruption and misery, like cancers which need to be excised. The level of ardency to which members subscribe to this philosophy range from those who will try and minimize the impact that humanity has upon the land by working with people to some among the Order who will not hesitate to resort to violence and manipulation to “cleanse” the land. While they are a relatively small faction of Gaia’s worshipers, they make up for their lack of number with their zeal. They are not “evil” per se, but rather looking at the “greater good” from a much different, long-term perspective. Still, some of their methods inspire fear among the common folk, and with good reason.
