Cause I'm sick of answering questions. XD Have more to ask? PM me, and I'll add it here.
Can they talk?
Nope. They can't communicate telepathically either they make no sound... or smell, for that matter. (We don't suggest tasting them.) They do seem to have a complex language of their own, however, and if you ever manage to find one, they can speak with other Shijin.
Can I breed them?
Nope. You may want to ask Lyokei though. She might be able to do something for a hefty price...
What do they feel like?
Ever felt like, mist? Or steam? A combination of, about room temperature, but slightly colder. (Only you can feel yours, remember!)
Do they count to my pet limit?
As of recent light, only three pets are allowed in a roleplay, and then your one Shijin. (The Shijin making a total of 4.)
What if I don't want to post my Shijin?
Shijin are 'assumed' to be with you if you don't actually mention them. If you -do- mention them, you have to make the 75 words with them, and they therefore gain levels. If you don't -mention- the Shijin, it is still with you, but it does NOT gain levels, nor can it help you in any way In character.
Can I give my Shijin away?
Not unless you leave, then it goes to Silver for re-distrbution (it will often go to your characters best friend, because it will have bonded a bit with them.)
When do Shijin 'grow'?
They don't. When they fully bond, they will transform into an animal depending on the species.
What level do they transform at?
You don't know. :3
Can they feel?
Only you. They can only touch you.
How big are they?
About fist-sized as their first stage. About the size of a housecat in the 'transformed' one.
How do I train one?
Like any other pet. Through rewards or punishments (Usually you can convey these through your emotions. It will know if you're 'mad' or 'happy' with what it's done.)
How intelligent are Shijin?
A Shijin is at least as intelligent as you. As their mentality suggests, they have a knowledge of the world that human beings are not quite capable of grasping. They are smart, in a similar fashion to dragon Gods of myth. They seem to know things beyond their physical knowledge of the world, and are surely more in touch with magic than we are.
We'll never part. I'll never stray again from you
