Dinosaurs of the Summerlands

Dinosaurs

The Summerlands are at once the perfect environment for dinosaurs, and relatively inhospitable. Small dinosaurs thrive in the consistently warm climates, but larger dinosaurs have been hunted nearly to extinction, lacking a sufficient hunting or grazing range free or settlements or hunters. The four dinosaurs below are the most common in the Summerlands, although smaller dinosaurs can be found throughout the region. All four are available to Druids in the Circle of Wilding as animal companions, and the velociraptor can be taken as a familiar by Summerlands wizards.
