Patronized Patronees?

Post by venusboys3 » Fri Jul 17, 2020 10:44 pm

I was just wondering, what term/word would you use for a character in a pact with a Patron?
'Minion' seems too one-sided, 'Follower' works for Clerics...

Thoughts?

DCC Lankhmar uses "Servant" for someone who's bonded through Patron Bond, and "Agent" for someone who has a less-binding arrangement with a Patron.

In relation to the Man in the Green Velvet Coat, since he's immortal and is fond of humanoids but doesn't see them as intelligent, they are 'pets' in the same way as some folks consider their dogs and cats.
