|Weak Against Armour|
There is no bargaining when the forest is damaged; vengeance will be exacted.
Dryads are spiteful creatures with hearts akin to shards of ice. In the soul of a Dryad, there is neither room nor regard for compassion or mercy, merely an uncompromising dedication to Athel Loren that makes even the most heartfelt vows of Elf or Man seem trivial by comparison. To harm the forest is to invoke a deadly and unyielding vengeance that ends only when the transgressor's body has been ruined and broken. Only a fool deliberately offers insult to a Dryad, but alas, these spirit-maids are so utterly different to mortal creatures that offence is often taken whether it was intended or not. Few mortals make such a mistake twice, and then only if the individual in question is either very lucky or very swift.
This unit frightens all enemy units, reducing their leadership when nearby. It is also immune to fear. Fear penalties do not stack.
This unit can hide in forests until enemy units get too close.
This unit can pass through trees.
The unit is immune to psychological attacks (fear and terror).
This unit has a strong emphasis on dealing damage. If fighting it, make sure to take it out before it can get into firing or melee range.
The spirits of Athel Loren are able to shrug off most mundane attacks, causing magical damage in turn before melting into the forest from whence they came.
This unit can deploy in an expanded deployment area, allowing it to start the battle within striking distance of the enemy - or somewhere unexpected.
This unit's attack can hardly punch through armour and is thus wasted on heavily armoured enemies.
