"In theory, this is the ultimate product."
He showed a small animal with soft scales and wings. It purred.
"A dragon cat hybrid, which is also a book."
"A book? How do you read it?"
"You tell it. 'Boknir, open'."
The dragoncatbook hissed at him. "Shan't."
"In theory," he sighed.

@MicroSFF dont worry so long as he doesnt set my actual books on fire he’s perfect the way he is

@MicroSFF and now this must be a thing in our next campaign

@MicroSFF So the dragoncatbook is a thing now in our newest #dnd campaign. I'm thinking she will record a diary of her bard's adventures. I'm tempted to post it on mastadon...

I once played in a campaign where there had been a huge magic war, with areas that had specific, localised weirdness. Like "everything is blocky, like Minecraft", or "everything, including trees and rocks, have wings and can fly", or "everything is two-dimensional and can't be seen edge-on".
My character collected a kitten from each location.


Inspired by your microfic, I allowed my daughter to equip her DnD character with a DragonCatBook. Wrote a backstory drabble that I'm tooting in a little bit. I'll have to buy you some coffee on Patreon as a thank you.

Oh, that's a marvelous idea! (The DnD one, though I don't mind coffee either)
Will you have her roll to check its response in various situations, or will you leave it up to GM fiat?

@MicroSFF Some of it is up to the DM (me). But she is rolling for responses, yup.
