Am I missing something?

The M20 book doesn't really mention Familiar creation, just how much paradox/quintessance, and RP guidelines.

Gods and monsters does mention a 25 freebie point familiar costing 3 background dots (and 3 quintessance/wk)

But it also mentions 10 freebies per dot as an example.... the math doesn't add up, so I'm not sure if the section means.... you MUST set 3 dots for a Gods and Monsters Familiar, disregard the book if you set the background dots otherwise.

Also, AFAIK unless you have very high levels of prime, you need a very high level personal node and avatar to afford a familiar beyond even 1 dot. (Unless I'm mistaken).

So, how does a 1 dot familiar work? (Do I have to bother even stating it? I could just assume 1 dot means it aint rolling ever, and outside of paradox soak/quintessance cost it has no relevant mechanics)

Thanks
