[RPG] communicate through the familiar


I've always wanted to make a non-verbal character.

But I think it would be pretty difficult to communicate with the rest of my party members. I want to make an in-world way to make communication possible.

Is it possible to telepathically speak to my familiar, who then communicates my thoughts to my team?

Best Answer

It depends on the familiar.

The default find familiar forms are all beasts, and list no languages spoken. Nothing in the find familiar spell alters that; it says you can communicate with it telepathically, but nothing mentions giving it the power of speech, so it doesn't.

However, some of the bonus forms for the Warlock's Pact of the Chain do speak. The Sprite, Imp, and Quasit speak Common, among other languages, and could act as a translator in the way you describe.
