So, here it goes: Where come from the idea that druids can have animals and turn into them? I read a fairly lot about the celtic druids, and they are more alike with bards and witches than the pathfinder druid.
From the earliest editions of the game. The game has always used real world history and mythology as inspiration, but has never been about presenting that information in a 100% accurate historical context.
If druids were "more like bards or witches" then why have them at all, since we have bards and witches already? ESPECIALLY since the druid has a much longer tradition in the game than the bard or witch.
I didn't mean "druids are like bards and witches" i meant "CELTIC druids are like bards and witches". Druids, as stated in d&d and pathfinder, are different from the two aforementioned classes.
My question is merely if there is some mythological or fictional real world inspiration for the pathfinder druid that you could recall.
