So, I was reading the Hell's Rebels PG and since Kintargo is a river port city, they say that aquatic animal companions and familiars are appropriate, and yet... how are they? If I take an octopus for example as my animal companion, by the RAW it's going to have to stay in the water (even though RL octopus can and do go outside the water) and unless the majority of the AP takes place in the water (which I doubt) the same problem is for a blue-ringed octopus familiar, also suggested.
Now, of course at much later levels one can pick up a Necklace of Adaptation (though it will need to be specially enchanted so an octopus can wear it, increasing the price a LOT) or cast Water Breathing constantly...
So, I just don't see why they recommend aquatic companions/familars... yet they do so what am I missing?
