Animal Empathy (Cha; Trained Only; Druid, Ranger Only)


The character can improve the attitude of an animal with a successful check. To use the skill, the character and the animal must be able to study each other, noting each other's body language, vocalizations, and general demeanor. This means that the character must be within 30 feet under normal conditions.

Generally, influencing an animal in this way takes 1 minute, but, as with influencing people, it might take more or less time.

This skill works on animals. The character can use it with a –4 penalty on beasts and magical beasts.


As with attempts to influence people, retries on the same animal generally don't work (or don't work any better), whether the character has succeeded or not.
