I've done some further testing and this does not work in 6.03.05 but does work in 6.03.06. I suspect it was to do with define changes in 35e code. so I'll move this to data as fixed.

This works fine for me if I choose the "SRD 3.5 for Players" source. I get a choice of bat, cat, hawk etc. I've attached a sample character.

I've also confirmed it works with the following source combinations:

  • Dungeons & Dragons Revised (v.3.5) System Reference Document

  • 3.5 RSRD - Campaign Set - Core Book I

  • 3.5 RSRD Basics, 3.5 RSRD Monsters, 3.5 RSRD Divine, 3.5 RSRD Epic

So, there must be something specific to the way you are doing things. Could you attach a character that demonstrates the issue please and a log file from the session in which you created the character.

I must be doing something wrong, because a clean install of 6.03.03 gives me the same issue.

Stupid me - forgot to mention. This is using D&D 3.5. None of the various sources I have tried to load have worked to allow creation of a familiar. I have loaded the complete 3.5 RSRD, and have also tried it with loading Basic, Epic, Dive, and Monsters. Campaign set Books I-III also fails to allow familiar creation.source.

I am checking to see if this works in 6.03.03, as a previous ticket states. If it works in the alpha, then it means that something might have broken in the ensuing updates.
