Familiars, Animal Companions, Animals etc.
This is to inform everyone:
- Most familiars (especially animals) cannot talk.
- Most familiars (especially animals) cannot write. They do not have opposable thumbs.
- In a world of magic and wizards with familiars, an animal that is acting in a non-animal manner can be assumed to be something other than a normal animal. Adventurers would know the difference, and can react to the animal in an IC manner.
Thank you and have a nice day!
