    I always thought pseudodragons were kind of cute.

    What monsters wouldnt you want as pets? Jk jk.

    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/mm...268_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/mm...68_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!

    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...

    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.

    2. My campaign logs:

    Agree with the succubus as pet;


    Totally.

    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.
