Spawned from, well, the monsters that give you nightmares thread.

My first suggestion is the Duck Bunny. http://images.elfwood.com/art/d/k/dkdcook/duckbun2.jpg

What monsters wouldnt you want as pets? Jk jk.

I'd say dragons...but there the pet relationship is kinda skewed.

Seconded!! I'd have a pseudodragon pet in a heartbeat.

I also like the tiny elementals that were in some source somewhere. I figure a tiny water or earth elemental would be fun to keep about the house.

I'd prefer mephits. A swarm of different element mephits chatting and running, flying all around.*

I'd really love a Grimalkin as a pet: http://www.wizards.com/dnd/images/mm2_gallery/88268_620_66.jpg (they are Small-sized talking shape-shifting cats from the 3.5 MM2). Swamplight Lynxs from the same book are really cute as well: http://www.wizards.com/dnd/images/mm2_gallery/88268_620_118.jpg .

Ooh, mephits. Mephits are fun.

Energons (xag-ya, xeg-yi, and their ilk) would be cool too.

An imp or quasit, if it would obey you, would be awesome. Invisibility at will? Yes please!

A succubus.

What? :smallconfused:

Edit: Okay, seriously? Tressym (sp?) from Faerun. A cat with wings? There's no end to the shenanigans there! Note: That vase isn't safe unless it's in a cupboard.

Done and...


A succubus.

What? :smallconfused:

done.

Yeah. Seconded on both counts. My third option, if I ever (somehow) tired of the first two (or shattered my pelvis) would be a miniature giant space hamster. Trainable, of course. Maybe to go for my enemy's eyes...

Rust monsters!

So cute. I'd have at least three; I think I'd name them Rusty, Oxide, and Patina.

a few ideas i'd like:
1) if i have a big enough yard, then a blink dog, or even better- a displacer beast, with the personality of a big arrogant sulken cat. it doesn't attack people, just slightly rake them with it's tentacles. it will have to be a realy big yard of course...

2) wyrmling dragons: i especially like the copper version, hunting scorpions. will be porblematic as they grow up though, but that will take a long time. finally- a pet that doesn't die in it's teens.

3) imp... not necesserily evil. on the likes on the flying housecat, but intelligent. more of a companion/ familiar than a pet.

4) gargoyle: a silent accompanying pet/ companion. i mean gargoyles the way i see them (if interested check my sig and scroll down)

5) hell hound: not as pet, but as guard dog.

6) thirded for pseduo dragons.

7) Iron Defender: because it's awesome?

8) baby hypogriff/ griffon: similar to the dragon appeal, only less inteligent.

9) Mimic or Phasm, the non violent type. just loads of fun (and some time frustration when they play "hide and seek") with them

10) treant pet in the yard.

11) i always thought stirges were cute. but their dietery requirements are a pain.

12) not sure about this one, but perhaps a ravid? an interesting concept at least)

Kol.

Totally.

Fishy
2009-07-02, 04:07 AM
Well, yeah.

I think it's be awesome to have a pet Living Spell of Prestidigitation: a little gooey ball that's helpful around the house.

Yuki Akuma
2009-07-02, 04:30 AM
A squirrel hive mind. It would be awesome.

The Rose Dragon

Ishiika.


It takes the appearance of a scorpion formed from a raging ocean of teeth, surrounded by an endless cloud of clicking disembodied mandibles that in the pattern of their sounds speak the greatest fears of every listener’s heart.

Who doesn't like something as adorable as that?

EDIT: A Beast of Resplendent Liquid which urinates life-extension drugs is a close second.

2009-07-02, 07:03 AM
I'd like a Pixie-pet if they didn't always make me think of Tinkerbell (who I find a tad annoying at times; not the pranks but the jealousy). As it stands, I'm joining the Pseudodragon-crowd.

Same here. The Tressym is one of the cutest creatures in D&D.

There's also the Eyeball beholder.

DamnedIrishman
2009-07-02, 09:07 AM
To everyone who said "succubus":

The topic states 'pet' not 'concubine/slave'. Unless the succubus was really, very heavily into being dominated, of course...

Kobold-Bard
2009-07-02, 09:10 AM
I know feeding it would be hell, but I'd quite like a pet Roc. Build a house on it's back and I'm good to go.

Otherwise I'd take a small Elemental.

Recaiden
2009-07-02, 09:15 AM
Tressym, Rust Monster, Eyeball, Bat, Lizard, Giant Wasp.

Partysan
2009-07-02, 09:22 AM
Succubi are nice, but I like my pets/women rather submissive. A Nymph perhaps, oder one of their breeds? Maybe she'd have to be trained, but that can be fun, too...
Also, that living spell Prestidigation is a great idea and probably even looks cute^^

Telonius
2009-07-02, 09:24 AM
Blink dog! Though I'm not sure if it would count as a pet, since it has intelligence greater than 3.

evisiron
2009-07-02, 09:37 AM
An owlbear cubling would be kind of cute. But then they get bigger, and you have to flush them down the toilet...
(This is how I explain pretty much all of my sewer random encounters).

Anything that could carry me on its back while flying would be pretty cool too!

Anyways, a Nymph would be way better than a Succubus. Think, people!

Starscream
2009-07-02, 10:45 AM
I think I'll try for some less obvious ones.

An ethereal filcher:
Too bizarre looking to be ugly. And it could swipe stuff for me.

A gnoll:
Look at the picture in the MM and tell me it doesn't make you go "Awwww".

A mimic:
It could take any form. I'd have it turn into a chest with legs, stick a bag of holding inside, and voila: the luggage from Discworld!

A mind flayer:
Admittedly, feeding it will be difficult.

A nightmare:
Tell me you don't think it'd be badass to ride one of those. With flame retardant underwear, of course.

A rust monster:
Already been mentioned. Still awesometastic.

A tarrasque:
...What?

A gravecrawler (MM2):
Don't know why, I just think it's cute.

1-Wyvern! Definately... not as smart as the Dragons but will get big enough to carry me and can still be trained. I always consider Dragons more of a cohort/friend.
2-Or I might Second that Roc Idea, but I have never been good with birds.

Finally- I would say Dire anything... Tiger, Wolf, Bear... try robbing my home now- lol:smallbiggrin:

2009-07-02, 12:34 PM
Either a Beholderkin Eyeball or a Tiny Air Elemental. Fire would burn things, Earth would probably punch holes in my floor, and Water would just be a mess. Air would be fine since it can't Whirlwind.

woodenbandman
2009-07-02, 12:39 PM
Well, yeah.

Another thing that I'd want is a Roc. That would be the greatest pet ever. You could build your frickin' house ON ITS BACK.

Chaos roc (MM2), maybe, Rocs aren't that big.

2009-07-02, 12:53 PM
I like being able to see.

Funny, I like not being level-drained to death. Plus Nymphs have the explicit ability to suppress the blind effect, a Succubus does not.
Not to mention the whole "Consorting" with fiends, if you know what I mean (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/IfYouKnowWhatIMean).

Still I would go with a Pixie. I'd call her Navi, and she would probably be annoyed by that, but we'd scheme up some great uses for her greater invisibility.
Plus having a good-aligned, intelligent talking, pet would probably do me some good.
Although really, it seems like she'd probably be more like a roommate then a pet, but whatever.

Frosty

I've invested in the summon elemental reserve feat just to be able to keep a rotating cast of four cute lil elementals around. Air to clean up. Earth to tote things. Water for when you really need to be able to swim. And the fire elemental is just plain cute.

erikun
2009-07-02, 05:52 PM
A Griffit (http://www.artbysvc.com/cw020.html) would be rather cute, especially considering the full sized version isn't very portable.

A Will-o-Wisp or Lanturn Archon would be interesting. I'm not sure why, but I find an aggressive ball of light to be quite an amusing familiar.

Tiny elementals sound interesting, too, especially for my more elementally-themed casters. Then again, I find Mephits annoying. :smallannoyed:

I'm surprised I'm one of the few who mention an ooze. Well, perhaps maybe not. Just think: easy to feed, easy to care for, cleans up around the house! Plus, great fun throwing it into the faces of enemies. Try casting like that! :smallamused:

And finally, while not a pet, a cohort Medusa would be interesting... assuming you can achieve petrification immunity. You guys can keep your level drains to yourself, thank you.

Mystic Muse
2009-07-02, 05:57 PM
as cohorts. kyuss, Tiamat and a great wyrm gold dragon. (yes I realize how contradictory that is.)

as a pet. lots of undead and aberrations. I need a few more to add to my collection. I already have cthulhu.:smallamused:

Pseudodragons and rust monsters are easily the cutest things in the monster manual.
A treant would be great to laze about on, assuming it didn't mind.
An ethereal filcher would be awesome to play hide and seek or scavenger hunts with.
A dragon turtle for days at the seaside.
Grey renders are explicitly stated to MAKE themselves pets/guardians/companions to creatures they take a liking to. And they're awesome.
And finally, because no one's brought it up yet: the Tarrasque.

Mystic Muse
2009-07-02, 06:35 PM
Iw as just about to bring up the tarrasque. it'd be a pet and not a cohort just because it's not intelligent enough to be a cohort.

chiasaur11
2009-07-02, 06:54 PM
A bulette.

Landsharks are awesome.

And it's not quite as hard to deal with as a Tarrasque.

A fleshraker'd be nifty too. Who doesn't like dinosaurs?

No love for the Beguiler? Permanent true sight, can speak, can wield a weapon? Is basically Pikachu with less lightning?

Though since beguiler, dragons, or similar all have human level or higher intelligence they might make poor pets. For something less intelligent, a Dire Wolf with a billion templates.

Then again, I find Mephits annoying.

Why? When our druid found out he had a female salt mephit following him around he was overjoyed. Something along the lines of "So i have a small winged naked chick with red eyes and skin following me around? :smallsmile:"


A succubus.

Well thats a great way to get killed by level drain.

Why not a Erinyes? Better in combat, Beautiful, has wings. And, very importantly, an animate rope she always carries around. :smallredface:

Pseudodragon is way up there - always thought they were fantastic little critters.

I also find the idea of any of the normal animals we'd keep as pets, but Awakened, would be awesome >.> (My cat could finally tell me what's bothering him, and I could finally convince him that his being on my desk wasn't a good idea for either of us >_<)

Most of the ones already mentioned are awesome choices for pets (except the succubus, I prefer pets that don't try to kill me) but my favourite is either a Lantern Archon or a pixie (of course in those cases it would be a companion/cohort rather than a pet).

But outside from DnD my favourite ever would be a djinni from Golden Sun

I always loved those, especially the art in Nintendo Power that had them blending into the character's body for easy storage.

On Topic, Pseudodragons. Yeah, they've been mentioned before(4-5 times by my count), but that doesn't make me want one any less.

I've never heard of one before, but I now want/need a Pseudonatural Lemur.

One that hasn't been mentioned yet, I think, a Winged Serpent (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Winged_serpent). Cute, flying, fruit eating, electricity-breathing snake like dragon creature. What's not to love?

Sure, why not.

All condoms in Sigil probably cast remove disease. Then, you have special condoms for special situations. Death Ward, protection from fire, protection from cold, mind blank, lesser weapon enhancement: ghost touch.

A Spectator since its a cute mini-beholder but without the evil and insanity.

Note: Reading about those condoms while listening to Pink and Peaches collaberation Oh My God has given me an idea.

Recraft a condom out of Adamantium and make it Dancing. You see where im going? Then make it Viscous and Merciful. See, now Pink can use it on the girl she's...ah...collaberating with and benefit from it too up until she passes out.

This is why DnD and modern music dont mix.

The topic states 'pet' not 'concubine/slave'. Unless the succubus was really, very heavily into being dominated, of course...

It also states "monster". Succubi are monsters. :smalltongue:

And if I'm feeling very adventurous, a baby hydra so I can raise it right.

On topic: Kavus. Flametongue, Thunderscape, you name it. I like the idea of having a pet that can rip a bus in half.

I had a Shadowrun character who ran into a blackberry kitten on a run, and after a bit of negotiation in which he determined that his mind control tricks didn't work very well against my dwarven sorcerer Will, but I was willing to feed him anyway, I took him home as a pet. (Well, given blackberry cat Int, "roommate" might be more accurate.)

We had a symbiotic relationship; I fed him, and he kept anyone else from messing with my flat when I wasn't home. If anyone tried to break in while I was away, I was like as not to find them still there when I got home, mindlessly opening cans of catfood for Köttr.

Oh heckles cakes, after reading that, I wouldn't mind BEING a cat. For a D&D game anyway.

Am I the only person who thinks that driders, or more specifically drow, or more specifically elves in general are not attractive whatsoever?

Elves, I get.
Drow, I kinda get.
Driders... as a long-time arachnophobe, just freaking no!


Meow :smallwink:

Seconded.
