I believe bandman's objective is indeed to dumb down the Druid.
• Limiting spells readied to Favored Soul's list size while retaining the capability to swap out a limited number of spells each day might be a good compromise.
• Wildshape is indeed a bad way to go, but I'm working on that... somehow.. with an alternative. Similar concepts are in a "Nymph Sustainer" class, Invocation based, over on the Feybook project. http://z11.invisionfree.com/Feybook/index.php?showtopic=141
I don't know how well stacking the multiple semi-shapes will go since I just made it; might need major nerfing.
