So I'm not sure if this was an oversight or other simplification. But anyway, my S&W druids will be allowed to swing clubs. Likewise, my Light version of the druid will be issued a club or spear as part of starting equipment.
Which brings me to a very brief rant. Ok, I know that D&D,etc. isn't specifically 'realistic' or sometimes even internally consistent, but after all these years of reading the rules, I noticed that there is only one other class that can't wallop things with a cudgel.
Come on folks, anyone can pick up a stick... no skill or significant strength required... Give the poor magic users a club.
