-- A notice is posted on the big tavern's doors --
We will be reaching a time of harvest. A time of great giving and plenty. Any being that brings a gift or offering to my grove will be granted a gift, blessing, or even a favor. It can be as simple as a flower to plant amongst the others, as complex as a ritual, or as professional as a bartered agreement. The nature of the gift, blessing, or favor can be negotiated and the severity of the gift, blessing, or favor will be based upon what is offered.
Such an offering must be made with me at my grove, though one may seek me out wherever I may be to inquire. I look forward to this time of giving and I am excited to take part in such a wonderful tradition.

Tobiassssss! How can you claim ownership of a grove? We do hope that when you say "my grove" you really mean "the space the forest shares with me" ... else you are just the same as the other two-leg beings who lay claim to land then cut down trees and dig holes into the earth and dirty the water. Two-Leggeds are such ssssssssssselfish creatures.
A bear will defend the territory it has claimed, making that area the bear's. A beaver will reshape an entire river to make a home. And a druid can claim a grove as their own, without working against nature; it is natural for certain types of beings to mark their territory. Humans are amongst them. Recognize that all beings are part of nature, and therefor their nesting habits are natural, and the understanding that we all have a role will come. If there is a spirit that disagrees with me, then that spirit may have what words with me it will, but I tire of the notion that humans and their natural inclinations stand against the natural world. Tobias, I would be honored to join in your traditions, but they are foreign to me. Am I to give you a gift, or another person a gift, or the wood a gift, or any of them? Amongst my people this is a time to feast and burn offerings to our ancestors, that they may also feast. But I would like to know more of your ways here.
