... and so, we tracked the evil necromancer Marrowglass through uncharted wilderness and over treacherous mountains, attempting to right the wrongs that were done in his name. We did bloody battle with his minions, losing not a few comrades along the way. We found his stronghold and stormed it in righteous fury. We clashed with the foul wizard in a battle that will live in song long after we fade from this world. We vanquished the villain through our might and our craft ...
And then we ate him.

* More than 60 playable species of Noble Animal.
* Adjustments to basic character classes, skills, feats, and magic to allow for animal characters.
* A new Basic Class, the Greater Familiar.
* New prestige classes, from the Alpha to the Man-Eater to the War Mount.
