Beasts of Eolvir
Beasts are the “normal” creatures of Eolvir; they lack any noticeable magical abilities, and are fairly mundane in form and function. Please note, however, that unless otherwise stated, Eolvir does not possess “Earthly” creatures, including Horses and Cattle – the role of Cattle is supplanted by the bovine Tu’Gara, while Horses are not well-represented in setting – the closest would be the flighty Yakul of the Golden Banner.
Each creature is listed with a number next to its name – this is the page of the Monster Manual its statblock can be found on. Some creatures have unique Statblocks, which will be listed with the creature. Almost all Beasts are viable forms for Druids; those that are not are marked with an " * " after their name.
