Before Perram joined Know Direction as the show’s first full time co-host, the podcast could have best been describe as a bunch of Pathfinder RPG stuff. Perram brings a knowledge of and love for Golarion to Know Direction, something any Pathfinder podcast is lacking without. On top of being a man on the pulse of the Pathfinder campaign setting, Perram is the founder of the superlative site for Pathfinder spellcasters, Perram’s Spellbook, a free web application that creates customized spell cards.

    Hey Ryan, I was thinking about your “dragon spirits” idea for your campaign, and I had an idea of how to make them a bit more like “spirits” than giving everyone a familiar, if you wanted to. In The Monster Summoner’s Handbook there is a very cool feat called Summon Guardian Sprit, which gives a person a particular improved familiar as a summonable monster using summon monster III or summon nature’s ally III. The same spirit appears every time you cast the spell. You could give the characters this feat and a summoning spell as a spell-like ability, limited to only working to summon their dragon spirit. This would have the advantage that not everyone’s dragon would be out at the same time, slowing down combat. Here is the link to the text of the feat, but unfortunately neither Nethys nor d20 have the progression table that is part of the feat. Guardian Spirit

    What do you think?

    • I might look into this as an alternative option to offer alongside it, but giving everyone a dragon familiar was part of the appeal of the concept. Heck, it’s half of what inspired the name Dragon Pets.
