B2 The Keep on The Borderlands
Druid and Ranger Animal Companions
Changes to Animal Companions for B2 Campaign:
- Given the ecology of the Region, the following species are available to fill the role of Animal Companion: Badger, Dire Rat, Dog (Wild), Eagle, Hawk, Owl, Snake (Medium viper), or Wolf.
- The animal companion is a normal wild animal, and as such gets the average hit points for its Hit Die as per the Monster Manual. This applies to additional Hit Die gained through leveling as an animal companion.
- The animal companion is a wild animal, and as such cannot wear barding of any kind.
- If the Animal Companion is killed or released by the Owner, the Owner suffers the same effects as release or death of a Sorceror/Wizard Familiar as outlined on page 54 of the Player’s Handbook, with the exception of having to wait a year and a day to summon a new one.
