Welcome to the forums and PCGen community!

Most of the familiar's abilities are static based on the master. As you level up your familiar's char will level up. If there are any selections to be made they will show in the Summary tab.

On the Temporary Bonus tab there is a "Familiar within arms reach" that you can apply so it's always on.

Hi, I'm already getting the alertness bonus from my familiar. The problem is I can't select the familiar type itself.

If I look in summary it sates "Familiar remain to be selected", I click on that and it takes me to the companion tab and asks me politely to use the familiar field.

I click on the "Create new" and it pops up a window and... wait...

As I was writing this reply to you it just suddenly worked? Yesterday when I was doing that it wouldn't add the familiar to the tab, but keep it as a separate entity. Now it seems to work? O_o

Well... I guess all I want to know now is how can I change the +3 stealth bonus from a cat familiar into a +3 bluff bonus from a viper familiar. While keeping the cat...

If you notice at the bottom there is another char tab. I think that pane doesn't display unless you have gone into the char at least once.

The familiar bonus's are hard coded per the rules. You could make a custom set with an altered familiar that gives that bonus. Or as a work around go to the GM Awards and play with the skill bonus's till you get the result you want. Just gotta keep a note so you remember later what they were for.

The first couple of posts anyone make are moderated. Cuts down on spam.

Oh I absolutely understand the spam thing, it makes sense. I was just posting again because the thread looks a bit weird now with the first post being invisible.

Anyway I found the GM award section but unfortunately I can only add bonuses through it (so I can add bluff) but I seemingly can't give negative values (so no -1 for me). Is there a workaround for that?

If not that, then how does one go about creating an altered familiar?

Temp Bonus - Should be Ability modifiers that decrease (Stat Damage or Drain IIRC).

Actually I can't think of any reason why we didn't include GM Penalties also. :)

Easy, because nobody has opened a feature request to add it. We only work on issues that are in the ticket system. (If I don't see it, it must not be an issue).
