The Ashen Circle

Undead are reviled as unnatural abominations by druids on all planes save one - the Negative Energy Plane. There, undeath is the natural state and it is the living who are unnatural. The druids of the Ashen Circle reside in this lightless void of life-draining energy, and focus their training on battle rather than nature (as there are no flora or fauna in the plane). Druids of the Ashen Circle are almost universally neutral evil, and either bear amulets of death ward or have become liches, vampires, ghosts, or other spellcasting undead in order to survive the ravages of their chosen realm.
