Pathfinder Animal Companion Released

I’m still eagerly awaiting the Ultimate Campaign book, but this month’s Player Companion, Animal Archive is pretty darn cool.  From a witch’s black cat to a ranger’s mighty wolf companion or a cavalier’s noble steed, animals have always had a place in fantasy adventuring—but why should only a few classes have all the fun? With the proper training, animals can be invaluable allies for adventurers of all stripes.

Animal companions, familiars, and mounts—these aren’t just class features, they’re your friend and with Pathfinder Player Companion: Animal Archive, they just got a whole lot more awesome! In this volume, you’ll get notes on how what magic items will fit your best buddy, which animals are favored by what races (and for what purpose), and new animal tricks like bombard, flank, get help, and throw rider! Three new archetypes are also included—the carnivalist, huntmaster, and mad dog are all great new options for people who want their animal friends as more than a forgotten line on their character sheet. We also provide a complete list of standard familiars (and their sources), new equipment, pricing for mounts both common and exotic, new feats like Familiar Spell, magic items such as the circlet of speaking, and new animal companions like llamas and familiars like platypuses! One of the new exciting options we offer in Animal Archive is the idea of animal archetypes, allowing you to tweak animal companions for specific purposes—guarding, racing, serving, even totem guide!

Packed full of new material and an excellent reference guide, you won’t want to miss Pathfinder Player Companion: Animal Archive—especially if you’re playing a druid or a ranger! Check out all of our Pathfinder Player Companions right here and make your player character even better with great new options and explore the world of Golarion!
