I have made some new animal companions for druids and rangers, and I wondered if you could add them to your pack?

Here is the link:

I created them as an alternative to standard bioware companions. They are more or less balanced (as original companions are  ;) ) - compared to UR's Winter Wolf companion, they are quite weak. They also  encourage to stick to the pure classes.

I'll say those look mostly PnP-ish. Are they?
That is not dead which can eternal lie.
 And with strange aeons even death may die.

Actually, they're not at all PnP-ish :)

I used only creatures, that can be already found in standard game resources to minimize possibility of conflict with other addons :P (only one 2da file edited).

Companions were based on original companions - Winter Wolf is very similar to Wolf companion, Worg to Dire Wolf, Phase Spider to Giant Spider etc. (so none of them should be overpowering). They were NOT based on any D&D manual!

The main purpose was to give extra choice for Druid and Rangers.

(I found on the vault addon called "PHB companions" but it contains only creatures up to level 20,  and requires CEP to be installed. It was not updated since 2005)

Not jet. But I'm working on it :) (I've got only Winter Wolf -  an alternative to Hell Hound)

I would like to have an alternative to Pixie, and I was wondering if Rat would be a good choice (as a rogue familiar).

Rat works. Don't forget Mephits as well.
