My PFS Wizards owl Familiar has been a rather useful over the past few sessions and I have decided that I want to give him the capability to heal, or at least be able to heal someone whose just gone down back to consciousness. However, this has been a trickier endeavour than I was expecting as it seems that there aren’t that many magic items that heal someone other than yourself and also don’t require a command word (curse you PFS ruling on non improved Familiar being unable to use command activated items)
So far the only items I have managed to find that really work are the Gossamer Amberstone, Milanite Armor and the Holy Mask of the Living God, and the Amberstone is the only real item that actually does what I want without having to jump through hoops (O Dawnflower Sash, why did you have to have a command word trigger?)
Does anyone know of any other items that could work or any other way in which I may be able to pull off this something similar?
Command word seems to be a problem. If you're not particularly set on the owl, Raven can speak Common and activate wands (though will need some UMD training for that)
Technically no. In PFS only some improved familiars can use command word items or completion triggers. I’ve already got a system for making the owl talk though which makes this problem somewhat more annoying.
Can an owl pour a potion down a PCs throat (or otherwise administer it to wounds) in PFS?
Possibly. It doesn’t state anywhere I’ve seen that they can’t, but I’d assume it would be a GM call as to if an owl physically could. It seems inefficient though, as you’d still have to take a full round action to give someone the potion as well as the move action it would take to get over to them
Name Violation wrote:Use additional item slot and give it healers glovesif I remember correctly in PFS additional item slot can only give slots their form allows (those slots are not normally available in PFS)
You are correct. All familiars have access to their neck, armor and if applicable saddle and horseshoe slots. Additional items slot will simply allow the familiar to wear a magic item in another body slot that they qualify for
