Slaughtering innocent refugees in order to be able to focus on nature is LITERALLY Faldorn's Shadow Druid sect territory. It's her bread and butter.

2. "Druids can create goodberries with a lvl1 spell so the food situation makes no sense" is poorly thought out criticism. How many spell slots must they expend every day? Why? Spell slots are a resource the druid need to do things like communicate with animals and carry out their duties. Kahga knows this.

1 goodberry spell feeds 10 people for a day. A lvl 1 druid has 2 of these and im going to assume that most of the druids will be higher level. The idea that they cant spare 5 or 6 (guessing on their numbers, could be less) lvl 1 spells for goodverry and 1 for water is laughable. Noone would take that as a serious reason why feeding these people would be a problem.

They wouldnt need to help them beyond that though. Keeping them fed also preserves the balance as it is. In the sense that a status quo doesent change anyway.

That said their options to help the Thieflings are somewhat limited without getting involved in some way which might make them a target for the Goblins. So to take the druids their perspective, what should they do?

Personally, I would like to see some additional depth to the situation due to this interaction.

For one, there is more than one type of supply-food could be sufficient if the refugees are running out of medicine or niceties, or stuff like arrows and weapons. Also, if the druids/refugees were legitimately pressed enough that the druids had to actively help defend the grove, or if the ritual required a constant expenditure of spell slots to fuel, it is possible that there would be a choice between spells to make food and spells to protect the grove. It's easy to show this-at the start, when a tiefling is sniped, have a druid run up to him and cast cure wounds and save him after a moment of hesitation-then sadly inform Zevlor that this was his only free spell so he can't make food for the refugees today.
