For questions about animal companions. Obtaining them, controlling them, their abilities, and their iterations with other rules or mechanics.
Many game systems have features or abilities which grant an animal companion to join players on their adventurers. Often these animals come with mechanical benefits for combat or utility. This tag should be used for any question related to these animals.
Animal companions are distinct from familiars who are typically the domain of spellcasters and magic users. Questions about familiars should use the familiars tag instead.
