Allow me to tell you a tale of woofers, beakies, flappers, scalies and meows - for within these warm and happy pages sit the work of so many amazing writers all under Adam's watchful eye. Taking the Sidekick mechanics and rules and running headlong into the bush with them, the posse of creators in this project come to bring you some amazing animal compadres - such as the badger, displacer beast, holliphant, and awakened plant! I especially love that now you can have a dragon wyrmling as a sidekick, because DRAGONS, more specifically BABY DRAGONS! Very often, rangers and druids and magic users luck out because they are able to have an animal companion or a familiar, leaving other characters lacking when they might want a furred/feathered/scaled/woody buddy - but fret no longer! This book - which is amazingly cohesive and well-laid out for so many people and voices being involved in it - has a special place in my soul for all the times I was told I couldn't have an animal buddy as a fighter cause it would die. Not anymore! Animal Sidekicks is more than deserving of the Comics, Clerics, & Controllers Golden d20 Badge.
