Beast master rangers and their animal companions shared a particularly strong bond. As both ranger and animal worked together as one for the same goals, some of the ranger's abilities improve the animal's natural skills, in a link that grew stronger as the ranger became more experienced.
In case of a ranger's companion's death, a new bond could be forged with a different creature over a period of 8 hours, as long as the creature was friendly towards the ranger.
Typical animal companions were no larger than a human. They most commonly included wolves or badgers, but sometimes also boars, bears or even snakes, as was the case with the dwarven druid Pikel Bouldershoulder.
