What are some creatures one might see in an exotic pet store in a fantasy setting? Stuff like pseudodragons, winged cats, shock lizards, etc.
Baby dragons mis-sold as pseudodragons
>>73260627Smol-Gryphons>>73260968that is actually an interesting potential plot hook.
Anyone got that picture of those mini monster girls in plastic containers? Like the kind you get from coin operated vending machines.
>>73260627Parrot harpiesOwlbearsTiny fluffy direwolves, bred for generations to look like pomeranians or chihuahuaTarantula dridersPygmy satyrsMinotaur girlsChimera cubs when you can'd decide what kind of pet you want
>>73260627It wasn't from a pet store but I did have a merchant specializing in exotic and illicit goods selling this in a game of Rogue Trader.
>>73261404did it hatch? what was in it?
>>73261463>did it hatchThe players never bought it>what was in it?I forget if I ever decided, and I know this sounds like a cop out but I think the mystery in this case is more exciting than the answer. Some sort of reptile though probably, the trick would have been coming up with a good aesthetic for it that wasn't too fantasy for the space game.
Magic familiar macaw. It's like a regular macaw parrot, only much smarter, has a limited capacity for actual speech and conversation, slightly augments your magical capabilities and very loyal to its mage. Benevolent creature, but likes the occasional chaos and enjoys playing fucked up pranks on people it likes. What do.
I personally like to grab the chart of animal companions, familiars and improved familiars from Pathfinder to help fill in space in places like pet stores. then toss in a few unique things often based on images i find here on /tg/ like the corgidiles above, owl griffins, or landshark puppies
post all your comfy fantsy-ish critters that would make fun pets
>>73260627You could absolutely steal some of the nicer animals from Avatar: TLA, as they are abundantly cute and comfyhttps://avatar.fandom.com/wiki/Fauna_in_the_World_of_Avatar
>>73260627Well, if alchemists can create chimera creatures, then the sky is the limit.
>>73265714Any good examples you may have concocted?
>Mister TrashbagsIn a little suburb, a Jimmy has an imaginary friend. Adults find that adorable, but other kids knows that it is dangerous to cross Jimmy. His imaginary friend is a tiny Shoggoth, undeveloped in his toychest, that Jimmy's explorer father brought back frozen from Antartica. It is weak in will and power, but still strong enough. The PC plays kids trying to save their teacher, a friend, or maybe the whole neighborhood if the shoggoth escapes.
>>73264281What's with all the hybrid animals anyway? Spirits behind it?
>>73267036>>73264281You could look into any of the animals in the Avatar setting, they're basically combinations of existing animals
>>73270868That face... Nope. Just nope.
>>73264320this is so sad
>>73274884>the cage is empty
>>73274175It's akin to the real life stories of many "exotic" animals. Some lucky ones get rescued and are either reinstated into the wild or live the rest of their lives being taken care of, but most just dfe due to the abuse . . Shit sucks..
>>73263872I'm conflicted.I love the fluff dragon, but I'm not sure if I'd want it to be a pet, since that implies animal level intelligence.As for the thread, flying noodles are cool.
>>73274884>Illusory Hamster>have to sign papers at the pet shop that you won't sue them for it being not a real hamster
Animal spirits trapped in automata would be interesting. On one hand you get a pet with none of the hassle of feeding, excretion and aging. On the other you have to wonder who is doing this and why, as well as if it's actually humane
>>73275147>>73274884>customer walks into shop with empty cageC: I wish to complain about this hamster what I purchased not half an hour ago from this very boutique.O: Oh yes, the, uh, the Waterdeep Illusory...What's,uh...What's wrong with it?C: I'll tell you what's wrong with it, my lad. 'E's not dere, that's what's wrong with it!O: No, no, 'e's uh,...he's invisible.Look, matey, I know a non existant hamster when I see one, and I'm looking at one right now.O: No no he's not nonexistant, he's, he's invisible! Remarkable rodent, the Waterdeep Illusory, idn'it, ay? Beautiful fur!C: The fur don't enter into it. It ain't there!O: Nononono, no, no! 'E's invisible!C: All right then, if he's invisible, I'll make him appear! (shouting at the cage) 'Ello, Mister Hamtaro! I've got a lovely fresh seeds for you if you show...(owner casts minor illusion to make a squeaking noise)O: There, he squeaked!C: No, he didn't, that was you casting spells!O: I never!!C: Yes, you did!O: I never, never did anything...
>>73280455>>73279256 >>73275147What if it’s the opposite? A regular hamster but you can’t touch or grab it because it’s illusory. It does normal hamster things but evolved to not be preyed upon by being basically a hologram?
>>73281428So kind of like a blink dog or displacer beast, but a hamster?I dig it
Domesticated mimics which are actually just empty treasure chests.
>>73287029Googly eyes pasted on as well, like the fantasy version of a pet rock
>>73286980I know some people complain about feathered dinosaurs, but I love the idea of ancient murderchickensJust look up videos of aggressive Capercailles, fucking frighteninghttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vjTH7ZN9DIU
>>73290171ditto, murdey chickens/turkeys is the most adorable imagery ever
>>73260627No one's posted this yet?Okay then; I'll do it.
>>73276421I think I remember this series, vaguely? Any other relevant art on that hard drive of yours, please?
Albino dragon that is occasionally a jeep
>>73292532I have a massive greentext collection i been collecting since 2011, and how the hell did I never see this one?
This entire thread is adorable
