Animals as Henchmen

Hire a castellan. :stuck_out_tongue:

If you want animal henchmen to get more powerful with increase in HD, what I would recommend is looking at the scaling of a dragon’s claw/claw/bite attacks, or the similar scaling you see in the various HD of bears and cats.

For example, let’s say that AJAX is a war-dog with 2+2 HD and one attack dealing 1d6 points of damage.

We note that black bears (4 HD) deal 1d6 damage with their bite, while grizzlies deal 1d8 damage at 5 HD, cave bears deal 1d10 damage at 6 HD, and polar bears deal 2d6 damage at 7 HD.

So you might allow Ajax the war-dog’s damage to increase similarly as his HD increase.

We don’t need credible accounts- ACKS is a game about myths and legends.

To that end, I present Puss in Boots.
