Animal Companions

Table of Contents

Animal Companions are pets which can give you some small benefit to help you with your adventure. This benefit may be transportation, fetching arrows, hunting, or perhaps scouting. The benefits depend upon the animal companion that you have.

Animal Companions are not like normal characters. They do not have stats nor can they truly be killed. The animal companion might be able to be captured or lost depending upon the GM however, and should your character die, your companion dies. You are not limited to how many animal companions you can have, however you can only bring two with you at a time - the rest would have to be boarded.

1. Boarding Animal Companions

Animal Companions can be boarded at any town stable for a nominal fee of 10 shillings per animal per day.

    That’s okay , I’ve got my hands working on making some polymer clay more pliable. I use FIMO and some colors are stiffer in nature than others. I’m working on my flowers of hope, since I’ve got the day off from work.
