So, the Dryads basically have a built in underworld (forests instead of underworld), plus they're like elves on those spaces, plus you get a lot of them... seems a little unbalanced.

I have play tested the Dryads several times and they are pretty good and function very well I found...

As you pointed out they have a sort of built in underworld capacity on forests and a limited elves capacity on these spaces. So they can be seen as a limited traveling equivalent of the elves. In my several games with them I found them fun and a good to play with...
I did not find any balance problem as they don't have any Vp capacity and can be smashed outside of forests unlike the elves...

Re: Dyrads
Also their "Underworld/Forest" ability isn't as good as the real Underworld ability, since they don't get -1 on attack on forests.

Personally I think they are OK, but then I've only tried them in one game.

PS. it's Dryads

On topic but not: Just because this thread is near the top and about the Dryads, I will note (the very minor error) for the creators of the PDF to address. Dryads is misspelled "Dyades."

Actually, both "dryads" and "dryades" are acceptable plurals. The latter is a transliteration of the Greek plural, the former is a plural according to normal English grammar.

Indeed. But under "Trapper" section it says "Dyades" not "Dryades" nor "Dryads." (Not that the creators asked me to proofread or anything. *smile*)

Oops, I didn't notice the missing "r". I got pedantic with no justification blush. Thanks!

Don't feel bad about unsolicited proofreading (and you probably don't). I do it too sometimes, and appreciate it when others help me out.

Wouldn't be Forest Dryads way too strong?
