Splatbook 109 – Beast Mode!

We are summoning our inner animal for this episode! Join DMs Glen, Fulongamer, Brian and a little bit later DM Cory as they explore the beast within us all. After a round of emails, the fellas get right to work. First they tackle the Beastman as a PC race, then move on to animal companions. From there they move on to the DM handling animal companions in combat, then finish up with an indepth look at the Beast Rider kit.
