In game I have a berserker with a pet bear, a snake focused druid, and another druid with various familiars. In real life I have a dog, one that likes to be by me at all times, is scared of thunder, cats, and more recently skunks. I raised her from puppyhood being the main caregiver so she developed a deep bond with me and prefers me over the rest of my family.

Here's the thing with animal companions and the like.

They're used in movies and the like as mascots and everyone loves them. They're strange and do fun things and you get to watch people react to them.

And that's all well and good for the span of a movie.

They get FUCKING annoying by the second session because the joke has been beaten to death already.

I had a (wingless) griffon. I had to let it go when I realized I couldn't afford the feat for it on my build, and it wouldn't have much to do if we were going to play pirates/seafarers. Set him free on the steppe I met him on.

He died and I still miss him too much to get another

It's been years but I still am reminded of him daily. The laundry room he slept in doesn't smell like him anymore. I don't save all the fat and giblets from whatever meat dish I make to mix into his food as a treat. I can put on my shoes without having to calm him down.

I still have the same nightmare where he runs away from me in a trainstation. I try to find him, but I cant, and I know I have to be on my train before it leaves with or without him, so I keep frantically searching for him but I never find him.

I miss him so much /tg/. My fucking heart hurts just thinking about him. And the worst part is, when I put him down, I realized how much more time I could have spent with him, and how I could've been a much better owner.

I want more than anything else to have him back but I don't deserve him.

The Sorcerer in my 13th Age game had a familiar for a while, a baby wyvern he named Thorn. Eventually he did some retraining and did away with the familiar talent, so he said Thorn got too old to be his familiar and flew away.

Now he plays it that, because his Sorcerer is aligned with white dragons, he can only use ice and lightning magic on his own ("thundersnow" storms, basically). Whenever he gathers power for a different breath spell, it's actually him summoning his wyvern, which divebombs with poison breath on the next turn. I think that's pretty cool.

Party barbarian has a tendency to eat small things, preferably whole, this includes PCs that somehow end up small enough for her to shove down her throat. Usually it's mine come to think about it, though all things considered my PCs have a pretty decent survival record when she does
