PREFERRED -  Druic

But also -----------

"cruii" as in:

Triatoma cruii or Trypanosoma cruii (Bacteria)

Poiana Gruii, Romania

druim

Scottish Gaelic, Noun
druim m., pl droma, pl dromannan =
   1. The back (of a person)
   2. keel of a boat
   3. camber
   4. ridge


druin - Gaelic, Noun = hogback, crown of road, camber, hump

AND FINALLY

Druif (DROIF), village, NW Aruba, Neth. Antilles, 2 mi/3.2 km NW of Oranjestad, home of Royal Dutch Shell Eagle Petroleum Refinery, Druif Beach, 1928-1953.

Not so. I posted a legitimate word following on from yours, Jim replied with druii and that was what stumped everyone. I can't be blamed if people cannot come up with words to follow on from what other people put  :P

Then proceed onward from DRUII Or are you not up to the challenge?

IT IS POSSIBLE !!!

If the game allowed rearrangement of the letters after one letter had been changed then LURID would be a possible answer.

POOPS

Rosalind it is easier to read and keep the game word separate from the chat like this! Not to mention easier on old eyes like mine!
