Anthro Subtype[edit]

This subtype pertains to any humanoid or monstrous humanoid creature who appears to be based largely and in part on making an animal anthropomorphic. Like the goblinoid subtype it does not have any mechanical alterations, beyond certain effects which seek out a particular type (such as a favored enemy, or a specific item's usage). As a general rule only creatures with an equal blend of "humanoid" and "animal" qualify. A humanoid with ears of a cat would not, nor a snake with a human face, but a bipedal tiger with humanoid limbs would.
