Arcane Familiars for Eberron
by Jennifer Clarke Wilkes

Artificers harness arcane magic in ways unlike any other class, and their influence is felt among all the arcane classes of Eberron. Nowhere is this more true than in the types of unique familiars that artificers have learned to employ. Now, whether an artificer or wizard, bard or sorcerer, you too can acccess the fruit of their labor. These unique familiars, as well as a selection of new familiar feats, will make your arcane caster's familiar the envy of your peers.

In Eberron, as elsewhere, arcane practitioners sometimes bind spirits to physical forms to serve as assistants, guardians, or simple companions. The circumstances of that world allow familiars to take shapes not found in other lands. In addition, artificers (particularly those of House Cannith) extend their expertise to craft and enhance familiars in ways unknown to other sorts of arcanists.
