This is a character help file.

Remember - a pet is for life, not just for Hogswatch.

You can play with your pet in various ways, they respond to some commands, although not always as you might expect. You can also pick up your pet and carry it around, assuming you are strong enough.

They will also respond to their owners voice asking them to stay and come.

Detail and Consign

The detail and consign commands allow you to check which pets you currently have, and the ability to consign your pets to be free of their attachment to you if you no longer want them.

Detail will give you a listing of the names of your pets.

Consign offers three options of consigning, or releasing, your pets so that they no longer follow you around or think you are their owner. You can consign them individually or all at once.


You can ask your pet to do certain things. All pets can be asked to wear, remove, and drop clothing. However, they can only wear clothing specially adapted for pets.

Note: Pet rats can also be asked to ride on your shoulders or to walk on the ground.


If you no longer want your pet, but do not want to consign it and would rather give it to a friend, you can use the transfer command. Using this command allows you to pass ownership of the pet onto someone else. This does not work for moon dragons.
