Creature Companions: A New Option For Any Class


A Brand New Rules Option For 5th Edition

“Sometimes, a family is a hardened warrior, a grizzled old wizard, a strangely talkative monk, a stocky knowledge seeker, and their dancing beetle covered in assorted fungi.”

— Qwinston Mayhill, knowledge seeker

A slimeling slithers from beneath a now unlocked door and accepts a scrap of meat from their dungeoneering keeper. A bard sings in the town square while his pygmy owlbear toddles through the crowd accepting coins. A brawler lifts her domidan high into the air so it can see the next match in the crowded arena. 

  Over the course of their travels, adventurers cross paths with the most dangerous creatures in the realms, often surviving gnashing teeth, magical attacks, and feral ambushes by margins thin enough to see through. But it takes a special kind of individual to face the monsters of the world and not blink. And an even more special one to reach out and give them a pet afterward.

New Friends, New Rules

The following new game option introduces rules that would allow anyone to link themselves to a creature companion, something typically reserved for druids, rangers, and wizards. Although some tables will find this to be an excellent way to expand their games and open up new roleplay opportunities for their table, some players and GMs may find the introduction of additional companions cumbersome to their style of gameplay. 

As with all new rules and game options, it is highly recommended that the addition of creature companion options into your game be discussed during your pre-campaign conversations or during your group’s session zero, specifically how players and GMs will handle the danger and mortality that accompanies adventuring with a living creature and how that creature will be handled mechanically throughout the course of their gameplay.

This supplement includes:

  • The complete system for any class to link with a creature companion!
  • The 5 stages of unique benefits that each creature companion provides.
  • 17 creature companions to link with, including:
  • 4 link empowering feats to take your bond and your creature companion to new heights!
  • 3 spells provided by your mystic link.
  • 9 new stat blocks for the creature companions provided.

Great book overall! But what exactly does a Polynymph look like? I didn't see an image of it in the book, and I don't remember that creature from the Monster Manual.

Hi, Abraham!

Really glad you're enjoying it. You're right, the polynymph is one of our original creations. If you look at the top of page 6, you'll see what the little guy looks like partially transformed. We'll have art of the untransformed "vanilla" polynymph in an upcoming book. :)

Does this supplement include the relevant text for creatures like the Domidan which are from other supplements, or do we need to buy those supplements as well in order to make full use of Creature Companions?

Great question! The full stat blocks for all of our original creatures are included, so you don't need the original supplements to utilize this one, but the major fluff and full lore is fleshed out in the original supplements.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
