      I thought a big point of this game is it was going to use 5e RAW. Very disappointed once I saw how this spell works in-game.

        can you use a familiar to move items around? I'm thinking the imp of the warlock would be even more usefull that way...
        OR a crow from a wizard grabing a bomb and dropping it and the wizard firebolt it and BAM explosion as long that it isn't heavy it should be fine right?
        there is also the possibility of a bag of holding in the future omgawd imagine all the chenanigan possible with a invisible imp that got that thing with it

          Your familiars can level up. I wonder if it carries over if they die. I dont want to test it out though. Im too scared of losing my cute little cat.

            Find familiar is usually a ritual spell, would it be possible to make that a part of the game since the familiars only have 1HP I don't see the use in having one. In D&D they have many uses but I don't see much reason to use a spellslot on something that dies in every fight unless there are specific places a familiar can get to.

              I found a scroll of Summon Quasit, I 'learned' it as Wizard. It does not show in my spells and is not nested within Find Familiar.

                Currently casting the cantrip Mage Hand dismisses the familiar to provide the hand and a second use of spell slot is required to regain your familiar. Unsure if this is intended but could easily be fixed by the way of initial casting providing a free recast ability, which is already implemented within the game
