“I’ll give you everything I have. I’ll teach you everything I know. I promise I’ll do better. I will always hold you close, But I will learn to let you go. I promise I’ll do better. I will rearrange the stars, Pull ‘em down to where you are. I promise, I’ll do better. With every heartbeat I have left, I’ll defend your every breath. I promise I’ll do better. I will soften every edge, Hold the world to its best. I promise I’ll do better. With every heartbeat I have left, I’ll defend your every breath, I’ll do better.“
Just got back from a weekend of NPCing for After The Fall (a post apocalyptic LARP). It was crazy amounts of intense and emotional, even as an NPC. After the closing event debrief I had a player come up to me and thank me for making his character feel so awful about killing me when I was playing a crying, shaking refugee character. He said it was an incredibly emotional event he won’t be forgetting any time. And that right there is why I roleplay and why being an NPC can be so frigging rewarding <3
My brain needs time to process, but there will be lots more about this event soon.
This is about the question on familiars you just posted. I have a familiar- my PC named Tremere. I feel like he fulfills both types of familiars you described. What forms can "main familiar spirits" take? Are they purely spirits or can they embody a physical object/being? Are there some characteristics- mannerisms, personality, powers/abilities- that differ between the two types?
Attendant spirits are just any other spirits that aren’t your Familiar Spirit. It’s just a term I coined a few years ago to describe all the other spirits witches usually have and I have just been using the phrase in passing not as a formal term.
No there aren’t like personality types, or powers or things that familiars have. Like I said before the familiar spirit is your complement so it has to do with you and your soul.
Yes it can chill in an object like a ring or a lamp, but other spirits do that too. The attendant spirits are just any other spirits that are loyal to you.
Generally in my tradition pets that are witchy are called imps and not thought to be the familiar spirit that is your soul’s pair although they are pretty darned special regardless.
