Legal Animal Companion Warcat?

Someone that plays at my local store has a Warcat as an inquisitor animal companion. The animal companion does extremely well and I decided to look into whether or not it was legal for Society play.

I think the Warcat is not legal based on what I read on additional resources. It seems the Player Companion it is introduced only has two legal animal companions and the Warcat is not one of them. If this is true, how does one go about alerting them to the fact they need to fix their character?

Tactfully.

Oftentimes someone might not know an option they're using isn't legal. But *how* you approach *them* isn't necessarily something *we* can advise you on, since we don't know you and we don't know them.

It could be something as simple as asking, "Oh, hey, what book is your Companion from? I've been thinking of making a Druid myself and yours seems really cool!"

Or if you don't feel comfortable addressing it yourself, you can ask your local organizer and/or your next GM to take a look instead.

Messages by carrier pigeon, Post-Its with letters cut out from newspaper, and strings of alphabet beads are not recommended.

This is a situation that a Venture Officer can be used to make the review and advise the player.

Jest tell the guy "Hey, I checked additional Resources and the Warcat is not allowed. Simple mistake. Go ahead and take some time to switch out that warcat with something else. Thanks!"

Simple.

They're an animal companion class, surely they have some ranks in handle animal?

Probably, but the Warcat is going to get to it, first.

They'll find the note in a baggie when they go for walkies.

I think there was a boon for a Warcat from a module.

Might explain it. I'm not familiar with what module/boon that might be, but worth checking.

I do not believe there is.

"I think there was" vs "I do not believe there is" doesn't help the OP. Best way to find out would be to ask the player with the Warcat.

The good news is that since Cat, big, is one of the broaded definitions of animal companion in terms of looks, Cringer there won't need a makeover just a stat adjustment should the player not have a boon.

Sort of? Warcats are only cats in the loosest sense of the word.

"Hey dude, how did you get a warcat? I was looking at book X but additional resources doesn't allow it from that book. Is there some special way to get it? I'd love one too!"

Warcat of Rull is from the Orcs of Belkzen book. It is not legal for PFS.
