On this lesson of Detentions and Dragons, Josh and Matt talk about animal companions. Yes, they are different than familiars and only rangers can have them. And while an animal sidekick is appealing, in game, animal companions can be both confusing and seemingly under powered.

This is why Josh and Matt felt it was necessary to explore this topic. In their discussion, they review the basics of how animal companions work and explore why the beast master ranger may be the unsung hero of your next D&D campaign.

Did these two teachers inspire you to give the beast master ranger subclass a shot? Then help Josh and Matt out by recommending Detentions and Dragons to a friend, teacher, or student. New listeners are the best way to help us grow as a podcast. Thanks again for all of your support!
