Within the priesthood of the Druids of Keledon, the Grand Druid, or Myrddin, is the highest authority. But under this figure the kingdom's Druids are led by three Archdruids, each of which holds sway over Druidic activity in part of the realm.

Each Archdruid is served by a staff of wise and experienced Druids, as well as the occasional extremely promising novice. In

addition to governing the Druidry of part of the realm, the Archdruid has other responsibilities based on his or her seat of power.

The Archdruid of the Whitestag is always a male, and is charged with the training and education of the male students sent to the Order. From his seat in the ancient forest he oversees the operations of Druids in the northern reaches of the kingdom.

The Archdruid of Draoi Dale is always a female, and is charged with the training and education of the girls sent to join the Order. From her seat in the hidden Vale the Archdruid oversees Druidry in the central portion of the kingdom.

The Archdruid of Capel Derwydd oversees the sacred island off the southern shore of the kingdom. When male and female students have reached an advanced enough stage in their training they are sent to Capel Derwydd to complete higher levels of education. The Archdruid of the Isle also oversees the activity of Druids in the southern portion of the kingdom.

Arbors Edit

An Archdruid is attended by a small council of trained, experienced Druids who serve as advisers and staff. The small groups

are called Arbors. An Archdruid's Arbor usually consists of at least a half dozen Druids, and sometimes can range up to ten or eleven.

Archdruids are among the most experienced, wise and powerful of the Druids of the kingdom. Their names are known among commoners and nobles alike, and it is considered a great honor to serve, or to have a family member serving, within one of the Arbors. Proximity to one of the Archdruids also affords the members of an Arbor the chance to learn directly from a great teacher. When Archdruids die they are often replaced from among the members of their own Arbor. Thus, such service is often seen as a path to higher level advancement among lower ranking Druids. Sometimes Druids not serving on Arbors are offered Archdruidships; one such recent example is Galwyn Bearclaw, who wished to continue serving in his role on the Royal Council.

Arbors are called after the names of their Enclave, such as the Whitestag Arbor.
