I would much prefer to see druids as a real mythology, not just vegetarian spellcasters. The problem is that we have very little to go on regarding the historical druids' practices. Almost everything we know about them comes from the Romans. However, their descriptions of the druids (a secretive, superstitious cult with immoral practices) isn't much different from their descriptions of Christians.
