The animal companion gains extra Hit Dice as noted in the table on page 36 of the Player's Handbook.

Re: Cambervillain Indecipherable Meetup Thread (Boston Area)

After including all taxes and fees, the floor section tickets are $50.075 each when purchasing two and shipping via standard USPS mail, which is no longer an available option. Holding at Will Call would result in the same price, or using Print-At-Home would raise them to $51.325 each.

ArgonV, for amazing USA beer, this list of breweries is a great start, and there are *so many more* amazing ones. "Most of the well-known US beers" that you've heard of are probably the corporate piss-breweries that spend millions of dollars on advertising and pennies on the brewing.
