It Started With a Kidnapped Pig...
The Dusk Circle are the druids of Westwood, led by three arch-druids – the ancient elf Khrymn Audark, the middle aged human druid Amdan, and the wild elf Embrae. The arch-druids oversee the activities of the rest of the druids, ensuring incursions of evil creatures are detected early and eliminated where possible, and overseeing logging operations at the nearby logging village of Kheldell.
The loggers of Kheldell avoid the wrath of treants and satyrs in Westwood by working with three druids of the Dusk Circle who are allocated to the task by the arch-druids, cutting only where they direct. The folk of Kheldell plant more trees than they cut, slowly extending the forest under the direction of the druids of the Dusk Circle.
Other known druids of the Dusk Circle include the half elf Esplen who is one of the druids the Dusk Circle send outside Westwood to bring back information and further their interests outside of the wood, and her former tutor, the wood elf druid Húlben.
