Hi again James! So yeah about those awesome intellect devourers, I have some questions...
First, how common is the pursuit of psychic magic among the species? Psychics, mesmerists, etc. as opposed to the previous go-to class of sorcerer?
Second, do everyone's favorite brains-with-legs have a racial name for themselves, or are they cool with the menacing title of intellect devourer?
My third and fourth questions are about egophages, creatures from the Occult Bestiary. In case you didn't work on that book or have a hand in the egophage's design, they are intellect devourers who imbibed too much midnight milk and evolved as a result, gaining flight, psychic powers, etc. Assuming you did have a hand in the egophage's development, I have just so many questions about them. But I'll keep it simple:
Third, how are egophages regarded in Ilvarandin by their land-bound buddies?
Fourth, was the egophage evolution spontaneous - just a fun side effect of drinking the Midnight Koolaid when you're already an intellect devourer with a host body - or was this an intentional experiment?
Thanks as always, and may your holidays be free of brain-eating puppet-master parasites (unless you've already been taken over... in which case, carry on).
