Like i already said i play in this setting since Advanced Dungeons and Dragon. And more i were learning about the situation more i were thinking ((uh oh.. This is going to be very problematic)).
For what concerns me Larian was true to the setting when designed this situation. We also have to keep in mind that for many players this is a setting they know soley by the Videogames Bg/Bg2/Icw/icw2/nwn/nwn2 in those games excluded baldurs gate 2 potrayal of the druid were largerly: We are the nature guys that loves to hugs trees.
So they may lack the informations on the setting that would explain a lot of things.
