So in prep for a con, I came across a note in an adventure that makes me concerned for a character of mine. Reproduced below:
(For a character that has levels in Barbarian (Mad Dog) and Cavalier (Huntmaster))
"Note that although (her) two classes would not normally stack their effective druid levels for determining the strength of her animal companion, (his) stats are generated as though this were the case."
I have a character that has levels in both of those classes under the understanding that the effective druid levels provided would stack, not effecting my animal companions advancement.
I haven't been able to find any straight answer in RAW/RAI or elsewhere on the boards.
So there's a bit of contention over my wife's new Witch build.
She's ultimately going to prestige into the new Winter Witch class, so she wants to have the Winter Witch archetype to start.
Now, both of these archetypes modify the familiar class feature, but I read them to mean that they will work together. The Winter Witch says
which doesn't lock her into choosing a specific familiar, just one that will survive in the northern climate.
The Scarred Witch says
So, it sounds like, to me at least, that these should work together.
