ABOUT

Curious and playful, catilus kittens are in no hurry to grow up. Being innately magical, catilus kittens can control how fast they age, and indeed whether they will age at all, while they play and laze about on the rim between worlds. As long as a catilus kitten does not travel too far and for too long away from its native plane, it can choose to remain a kitten, until the lure of adventure or the passion to undertake some long-term creative project motivates it to grow up! A catilus kitten will try to avoid scary situations, usually flying away to safety at the sight of danger. It loves to play with illusions (unless they are scary) and cuddle up to its friends for a nap when it gets tired.

Familiar. At the gamemaster’s discretion, a player character who can cast find familiar may choose the form of a catilus kitten for their familiar.

The term “Catilus” refers to an entire species of curious feline creatures that float through dimensions inside (for them, catiloid) shells. There are catili of all ages, colors, and sizes, and the oldest and wisest of them is known as just “the Catilus”. All catili, as well as their friends, make up what they like to call the Catilus Family.

Catili are native to the rim between worlds some call the astral plane. There, they wield the magic of creation to paint the nothingness of the void with delightful colors and create quirky curiosities out of formless matter. Many catili travel across the cosmos seeking adventure and new friends, on which they may bestow rare and unusual magic powers! All catili possess some form of whimsical, colorful magic, including short-range telepathy and their signature float-ina-shell flying. Most adults can cast minor illusion at will and love to compete in finding the most whimsically creative ways to use that spell. Many of the more adventurous catili can also turn invisible, an ability they use to surprise friends and confound enemies.
