The first Companion for BoTB, the War Hound, is now available here!
Now, dogs and wolves are already described in the DYO play aids, so why a specialized sheet for the War Hound?
There are several reasons:
- First, I didn’t like the idea of a war hound that is capable of a fully indipendent action on the battlefields. The rules make possible to give the war hound orders like Attack!, Back!, but also set some limitations on what they can do without a specific order
- Second, I wanted the War Hound to be capable of progressing during the campaign game: those companions can now gain XP that can be spent to improve their stats as any other character
- Third, I wanted to create some sort of link between the war hound and its master: this also creates a small story behind this companion.
So let’s grab this new rules for BoTB and let your new trusted friend join the battle! Let me know your comments/suggestions/critics as usual.
