The Beastmaster is now on sale (and has been added to our All of the Playbooks, Adventuring Party, and Wilderness Survival bundles)!

A big part of this class is your animal companion, not just because you both work well together, but because it's essentially a pseudo-character: similar to the eldritch horrors The Cultist can summon, it's got stats, hit points, Armor, a damage die, makes its own moves, and you build it from a list of options (it's just initially tougher and more competent, but you only get one).

As you level up you can make your animal companion even stronger, gain a damage bonus against beasts, gather a pack of other animals (which mercifully use hireling rules), learn to speak telepathically with beasts (and even see through their senses or control them for a time), better refine your fighting tactics with your companion, and more: all told there are 25 advanced moves to choose from!

We didn't include any multiclassing moves, because those are the easiest to "design", but if your GM is cool with them we could see it working very well with the ranger, druid, and even shaman (especially with the Spirit Bond move).

This product contains three files.

One is a letter-sized character sheet that uses our new character sheet layout.

The other two are digest-sized books, one in color, the other in black and white (to make it easier to print at home if you want). They both contain:

  • The beastmaster class.
  • New weapons, armor (both for you and your animal companion), and dungeon gear, 
  • A director's cut with questions to ask yourself when rolling up a beastmaster, explanations/clarifications for some of the moves, and an alternate move in case you wanna better focus on Bonds.

You can see a preview of it over on DriveThruRPG.

Note: If you purchase using the PayPal Buy Now button, we will also send you a complimentary copy through DriveThruRPG. Please allow up to 24 hours for delivery, though it usually ends up being at most eight (depends on if you buy it after we've gone to bed).

By fan demand, we've mashed all of our 10+ Treasure volumes into one big magic item book, making it cheaper and more convenient to buy in print (which you can now do).

  1. A very interesting concept which reminds me of the old televesion series of the same name. I particularly like the rust monster as the beast master's companion.

    1. @Victor: I'm only somewhat familiar with the movies. I vaguely recall watching one I think. >_>

      Yeah, wanted to do something different than a wolf or bear for the iconic companion.
