Slightly offtopic question
- Unfortunately i'm not a member of any other D&D groups, so i didn't
know who to ask when me and some friends came up with this question.
The D&D epic level handbook says this, on page 11, under "animal
companion" in the epic druid section.
"The druid may have a maximum number of animal companions equal to
twice her class level, as normal"
Now, isn't normal One animal companion? how is this normal?
Thanks for any input.
- The epic handbook was written for D&D 3.0, not 3.5. In 3.5, the norm is one
animal companion. In 3.0, the norm was twice as many HD as your level (or
the same number of HD as your level, depending on how dangerous the tasks
were). You could have multiple companions, as long as they didn't exceed
that total. For example, one of my players would use one HD for a owl or
raven, which he'd use as a scout, and the rest on a powerful creature that
would help him in direct combat.
I'd suggest trying the wizards of the coast website (wizards.com) for other
D&D specific questions, since their answers are official. Not that I mind
answering, of course. They have various forums there for discussion.

- Richard is right. Using the 3.5 SRD, the Druid entry has this:
Animal Companion: The Druid's animal companion continues to increase
in power. Every three levels higher than 20th the animal companion
gains 2 bonus hit dice, +1 strength and dexterity, and an additional
I hope that clears things up for you. I think that was in the 3.5 DMG.
