On one of my Pathfinder tables, two players came up with the idea of having their new characters - two 3rd level Sorceresses - not only having a romantic relationship, but also being so important to each other that they went through a ritual that made both of them a familiar for each other.
While Improved Familiar is pretty clear regarding Fey-Touched creatures being a valid target for a familiar, I'm under the impression that what the rules are saying is that you can pick a regular familiar with the template "Fey-touched" applied upon it, not any arbitrary creature with said template, and so they wouldn't be able to make this work.
I'm not even sure if a PC can be built with the Fey-Touched template from the get go, but assuming it is possible:
- Is my reading of Improved Familiar correct?
- If it is and it is impossible for them to proceed with their plan this way, is there any other build that could enable them to follow this concept that would be valid with no or minimal DM-fiat?
I'm looking for Pathfinder 1e answers, but if there is a way to make this work in D&D 3.X, that would be welcome too.
