Some primal powers are more overtly magical than others, but they all draw on the spirits of nature that pervade the world and, to some extent, the echo plane known as the Feywild.
According to legend, when the gods made war against the primordials at the dawn of time, the battles raged across the cosmos for uncounted centuries. The gods slowly gained the upper hand, successfully imprisoning or banishing many of the primordials. However, this war threatened the very existence of the world, as the primordials who brought it forth from the Elemental Chaos clashed with the gods who sought to fix the form of the world in permanence.
Phg2 the last days of the war, a new force made itself known in the cosmos: These primal spirits declared an end to the conflict, asserting that the world would no longer be a battleground for the two opposing forces. The gods and the primordials were banished to their home planes, and the primal spirits of the world decreed a balance: The world would remain a place where matter phb spirit mingled freely, where life and death proceeded in an orderly cycle, where ohb2 seasons changed in their unending wheel without interference.
The gods and the primordials could still influence the world, but they could not rule it. They are spirits of winds and weather, of predators and prey, of plains and forests, of mountains and swamps. As the d&r of the world have come to know these primal spirits and live in harmony with them, some mortal spirits have joined their number after death, just as some mortal souls pass to the dominions of their gods.
These great ancestors are among the most potent of the primal spirits. Characters who use the primal power source stand d&r rooted in the world, between the divine power of the Astral Sea and the primordial churning of the Elemental Chaos. They have some affinity with the native inhabitants of the Feywild, who share their love and respect for the natural world.
There might be some conflict and disagreement between such characters, but they also have many common foes. In a broad view, the cities and civilizations of humans and other races are just as much a part of nature as are primeval forests and mountains, and just as worthy of protection. Many primal characters do hold the gods in great respect. In general, even evil gods would rather rule the world than destroy it. For that reason, characters who wield primal power sometimes worship gods as well.
As god of the wilderness, Melora is sometimes seen as an ally of the primal spirits. Kord is occasionally called the lord of the storm spirits, and both Corellon and Sehanine have ties to the Feywild that make them friendly with nature spirits. Primal powers are called evocations, because primal characters evoke primal spirits to make attacks and effects in the world. Some characters channel primal spirits through their bodies in order to transform themselves and thereby make their physical attacks more formidable.
Wardens draw on the primal spirits pub2 earth, trees, and beasts to transform their bodies, giving them strength to stand against their enemies. Other characters evoke primal spirits to create external effects.

Shamans use spirit companions as their primary link to the spirit world. Druids, too, can evoke primal spirits to create terrain effects, buffet foes with thunder and wind, or create bursts of fire. This chapter introduces five new races, from the humble gnome to the exalted deva.

Goliaths dwell high in mountainous regions, traveling with the migrations of elk and other game. They view life as a grand competition and call on primal power to enhance their considerable physical strength and endurance. Half-orcs combine the best qualities of humans and orcs and are strong, fierce, decisive, and resourceful.
They savor the simple pleasures of life, from feasting and revelry to the thrill of battle. Shifters carry a touch of lycanthropic blood in their veins.
