Summon Familiar (or Magical Companion)

Postby Caedym » Wed Sep 10, 2003 7:22 pm

If you could summon a familiar for one of your characters, what would you summon and for who? What kind of powers would you want it to have and also what kind of powers do you think it could be given in order to not be unbalancing?

For example:
Would a paladin like to have a Ki-rin that has the same stats as their current mount but with permanent fly and a form of magic resistance?
Would a Lich like to have a Nightmare mount that is little more then a permanent flying Wight they could mount?

Would you want to have such a minor rentable pet that could die and never come back unless you requested another, because it wasn’t based on an item you had but on your character completing a quest?

Questions. Questions. Questions.

As a duergar cleric I would summon an Avatar of Laduguer. Because Laduguer loves me.

Laduguer also loves you.

Stats could be that of the normal Laduguer, but then also fly like the Ki-ren. Why should clerics have less than paladins.

------------------------
As a troll warrior I would summon a 2nd head as familiar. Thus becomming an ettin, then I would also have someone to talk to and many more head + earring slots to wear eq on.

I would summon Kobe Tai and find a saddle that let me stay mounted around the clock

I think this has been discussed before, in many forms (yes Daz, we hear you) but never really resolved. So it's fair that you brought it up :)

Let there be discussion!

(Personally, I think treants are cool. I think necros could use some heftier casting pets, and an earlier immaterial warrior pet, but everyone screams bloody murder on imbalance whenever this gets suggested.)

I'm talking about something about as pathetic as a pet you'd buy in a store on the mud beefed up slightly with an RP theme to it based on the individual's class.

Something that is for RP more then anything else. You wouldn't really want to take these things zoning with you for the most part.

And no. Sorry Disopultip, no Barneys for Duergar or Trolls who are off to see the wizard for if only they had a 2nd brain.

Hmm, guess goats that shoot laser is also nono.

Then I would prefer not to have a familiar.

Avatar summoning is else a big thing among evil races. And some trolls do grow a 2nd head.

I'd like a giant fresh water squid that shoots blasts of ink to blind everyone.

As a lich, I'd probably summon up an imp, who could deliver items from me to other players, or bring items from other players back to myself. Anything under 5 lbs, probably.

All I want are some sharks with some frickin lasers on their head!

Seriously, I'd love to have a swarm of squirrels, rats, or spiders as a pet. I always saw Trel as one of the more tactically minded rangers that would send a bunch of vermin to raid the goblinoid camp's food supply a few days before attacking it.

an owl for Narra
a cat for Shalia
a ranger for Aerisia (ooo got one .. Thalidyrr)

But you're not evil enough. You're the margarine of evil.
