View Full Version : D&D 5e/Next Request: 5e Animal Companions/Familiars!

2016-10-25, 10:51 PM
Hello everyone!

I was wondering if anyone's brewed or has seen a brew archetypes or features for arcane spellcasters that offer an enhanced familiar. What I have in mind is something like the Pathfinder Witch's familiar or the Arcane Heirophant's familiar, where the pet itself becomes central to the theme of the class/archetype. Has anyone seen/made anything like that?

Sterlin Vermin has done a couple of things like that for Druid (plant creature), that can be found in their complete divine material on their site. And they have a wizard of 3 souls where they have several familiars in their complete arcanist handbook on thier site.

And i think either draco_knight or ghost dragon has a "summoner" styled class on the site for middle finger of vecna.

The dark arts player companion has reanimist wizard that uses souls of the dead to summon ectoplasmic projections of them.

*Shameless self-promotion warning*

I have a spell (Find Exotic Familiar, page 42) and an arcane tradition (Witch, page 46) in here (https://www.dropbox.com/s/s3crmpfdbc5u5x5/Fey%20Creatures%20Complete.pdf?dl=0) that could also be of interest.

And I have created a buttload of CR 0 creatures that would be suitable as familiars. Some are in my sig, others (including penguin and shimmerling) available on request.
