Actually, I don’t think Druids were *agricultural*.

Well, in an agrarian society like the Gauls’ they were probably involved somehow. But not to the point suggested by AoSHQ’s quote of the day, kid-friendly earth fertility ritual (with corroborating photo) edition:

Now many of you probably think I am going to bust on the First Lady for indoctrinating little school children in Druidic cultural norms. But I’m not. It would be hypocritical, after all. I have a lvl 80 Druid in Warcraft.

Also, strictly speaking (and contra AoSHQ) it isn’t a harvest ritual. It’s a sowing ritual. Freaking urbanites.

PS: I should note that World of Warcraft does not have the most inaccurate depiction of druids and druidism in modern Western society. Oh, my, no.

    Yes, the most inaccurate depiction of druids and druidism is among those calling themselves “neopagans”. Once had a self-declared “neopagan” express shock upon learning that druids were the priest caste of the Celtic people; he had thought they were a tribe unto themselves, apparently.

    (Didn’t have the heart to tell him about the strangling, head-hunting, etc.)

    Now that you’ve finished Dragon Age, Moe, you really should play World of Warcraft – hours of entertainment.


  • Derek says:

    As long as the trees being planted someday grow up into druid trees that will heal me as I assault a Horde base, then I’m cool with it. Wait, on second thought, nothing about that previous statement makes me anything resembling “cool”. Hrm.

  • Skip says:

    Alliance? Yup, definitely uncool, Derek. For the Horde!
