Post Query: Animated Servant in the 3rd Edition
on: December 6, 2016, 19:40

I was curious, is there any word, that can be discussed, on how Animated Servant will be handled?

In a prior post(http://monkeyhousegames.com/forum/?mingleforumaction=viewtopic&t=1761.0), I inquired about making an AI for my character, who was originally a computer that was stuffed into a stuffed panda backpack before her teenage years and moving it to a wrist computer. Will the new rules be more consistent on how Animated Servants are built or would there be a better way to build such an AI?

Animated Servant is not in Mighty Protectors. Instead, you'll use either Companion or Summoning to build your AI.

Brian is correct. Both of those abilities (Companion and Summoning) yield points which you'll use to construct the secondary character, just like a PC.

So, aside from weaponizing it, what benefits could be purchased from a Companion that would benefit the owner? Stuff like bonuses to research or general bonuses to the Owners' skill rolls.

For the specific example you game (a computer in a backpack), it'd probably be simpler to just buy the main character skill bonuses as you suggest, with the limitation that they come from the backpack device and will go away if that device is lost or broken.
