As a Ss'ressen, I was thinking about getting a familiar. I remember from the old Ssethregore book that there was a winged viper that could be a familiar. Is there any reason that I couldn't take an owl, use the owl stats, and tell people that it looks like a winged viper?

I know that there is a winged snake in the SRD, but that is not legal for use and I wanted something that style/appearance wise fit with being a Ss'ressen.

No reasonable judge would have a problem with this.

I doubt any GM would have an issue with this....

heck, I may have to add a little stat block for you in the player's guide.

Why not use the ever popular Paldarian War Goose. They have the added bonus of providing an omelet each morning for breakfast. If they die just cook them in a stew. Win all the way around. :-p

No, for the divine you need to roast an Illirite's celestial falcon. :)

Not a truly important question, but as embodied spirits, do most familiars leave a corpse behind that you could eat?

I think I should write a new Ranger Archetype - Paldarin Goose Herder

That was my thought too. Which means you either need to eat it alive or amputate a thigh for roaring while keeping the celestial falcon alive... probably hard to get an illirite to go along with that experiment though...
