When playing the special challenge path of Pocket Familiars, the text from the Council of Loathing differ in a few areas. They are as follows:

"Well done! You have slain the Boss Bat."

"Actually," you say, "some jerk kid killed the Boss bat. But he challenged me to a pokéfam battle afterward, which I won. He gave me this gross belt."

The Councilman shrugs. "Close enough! We don't really care who does these quests, so long as we know someone is doing them."

"Thank you for slaying the Goblin King, Adventurer."

"Actually it was that kid again. Jeremy Something-or-other. He's a real jerk."

"Spiky hair, popped collar? He's always coming here asking for quests so he can get 'EXPs' for his 'pokéfams'. None of us have any idea what that means."

"Well," you begin, "'Pokéfams' is short for 'pocket familiars', and--"

"Not actually interested," the Councilman says. "Thanks for taking care of that goblin whatever, we'll let you know if we need anything else."

"Aha! So the Spookiness was coming from this abominable creature, was it?"

"Well, I assume so," you say. "Jerry had already killed it by the time I got there."

"Jerry's that kid's name?" the Councilman asks.

"Yeah. He's rude as hell."

"Is that good or bad? I can't keep up with the lingo you kids use these days."

"Wow! You actually brought back the Holy MacGuffin, <player>? That's pretty darn impressive -- well done! Now we can pack it in an unlabelled wooden crate and stash it in a secret warehouse full of similar crates somewhere where it's likely that no one will ever see it again. Thanks for your help!"

"That's it?" you ask. "That's pretty anti-climactic."

"Yeah, you're probably right. You like parades? We could throw a parade."


And one quick (though enjoyable) tickertape parade later, you're standing back in front of the Council Hall, picking bits of confetti out of your hair and wondering what you should do next. For a second, you think you see that kid Jerry glaring at you from an alley, but when you turn to look, he's gone.

"Adventurer! We've recently received word that the Naughty Sorceress is holding some sort of contest. We don't know what it means, but we know it doesn't mean anything good, and as such, we have decided that it is time for you to embark upon your final quest. Seek out and destroy the Naughty Sorceress, who has plagued these lands for so long, and rescue King Ralph XI, whom she has imprismed.

"Go forth to her Lair, east of the Nearby Plains! Beat her down!"

"Okay," you say. "One thing though -- do you know anything about some kind of pokéfam world championships?"

"A what now? Is that an e-sports thing?" the Councilman asks. "I don't understand any of that computer stuff."

"No, it's... I tried to explain this before. It's people fighting with their familiars. Like, competitively."

"News to me. The Naughty Sorceress is known for having a variety of creatures and familiars guarding her tower, though."
