I love this idea! Maybe certain eggs are better for summoning certain familiars. Maybe unusual eggs could produce different effects for the summoned creature, like a snake egg giving it a scaly armoured skin. Frog eggs, shark eggs, fish eggs, spider egg sacks! Ohh wow, that could be cool. Swarms of tiny, posionous, eight legged familiars, oohhhhh hooooo. Go to Comment
AutoMedon – A mechanical poet of renown not for his vast catalog of poetry, but for his complete lack of anything written or spoken, having had no output in his programmed profession. His creator is unknown or at least unaccredited, and there are those in great number in the artistic world who wonder and marvel at his inability to produce poetry, crediting that flaw to his creator who is unknown or at least un-credited. There is also a small faction of scholars who believe that when he finally, finally speaks, it will be the most beautiful or sorrowful verse ever spoke or will ever be spoken. Whether his creator is among either group or dead is unknown. AutoMedon sits alone under a tin roofed enclosure, upon a stone chair, with his gaze off in the distant as if thinking.
“It’s strange to look at this mechanical man and think what thoughts are working through its’ workings or even if the damn thing is” – Aralis of Qurim, poet and pottery salesman
