Fellowship of Leaves Information Post Introduction and Sources This guide is used to introduce new players to the world of the Fellowship of Leaves. The Religion Pageis an interesting place to browse through religions. In adition to that, my Council of Esus Thread is another religious thread. Screenshots will be added soon. Basic Lore The Fellowship is a very unstructured religion in Erebus's lore. It's patron god, Cerruneous, is the youngest an weakest of the gods. This means his authority over the religion is limted, and different strains are plentiful. For this reason the religion is purely neutral, as there is little agreement.The different groups are marked by similar characteristics, a deep respect for nature and life, though not any particular life. They all worship Cerruneous, though I think they also worship Sucellus and Amataon. A team member would be welcome to coorect me. The Fellowship is powerful among the elves, as well as sayts and other sub human races. The Ancient Forests A primary focus of the Fellowship is in forests. Forests in the Fellowship's land has two main features. The first is that these forests can turn into Ancient Forests, which increases the tile's food output. When enemies invade, ancient forests can soawn treants, or giant tree men, to defend your land. Whenever an enemy enter a ancient forest, neighboring wnciwnt forests have a 5% cchance of spawning Treants, which last for 3 turns. If the city nearby the forest has a Temple of Leaves, the chance of the treant spawning is increased to 15%. Heroes of the Fellowship There are two heroes that require a fellowship state religion, Yvain the Woodelf, and Kithra Kyriel. Yvain the Woodelf- Yvain is a very powerful druid unit. He becomes avalable at Commune with Nature. He is a definte must have for any FoL player, as he is another unit to vitalize the land, as well as create forests to turn into Ancient Forests.
