Effects[edit | edit source]

Charmed animals provide a +1 bonus to an attribute. The bonus ends if the animal is killed or dismissed. A maximum of 3 charmed animals can be following the party at the same time. Multiple animals of the same type following one character do not provide a stacking bonus.

Certain animal followers, like dogs and the giant rat, will automatically attack in combat and are thus difficult to keep alive, as their low hitpoints and armor means they have little in the way of survivability.
