Generators for animal familiars, fantasy horses, mundane mounts and unusual pets. With a smattering of stranger beings such as aliens and pokemon.
Pets, Mounts and other Companions
People love their pets in real life and in RPGs too. Paladin mounts, witch familiars, ranger and druid animal companions. So here are some tools to create and customise pets for your games.
We have complete pet generators for all-in-one regular or fantasy pets. If you specifically want feline or canine friends then the cats and dogs section is for you. Horses are always popular as mounts or friends as are their relatives unicorns and pegasi.
Your magical pet is a large white male parrot with the ability to sense evil. He has a forehead marking in the shape of a star. He gets lost easily and is not very neat.
