As there was a survey recently on whether seller review threads should only be for reviews, I'm not sure whether I'd be going off topic to talk in too much more detail about my experiences with the EM guardians.
By way of explanation, all the 'guardians' are sentient servitors with various abilities. They can be tasked but they are also permanently on guard for the owner. They are also like companions but are never moody or demanding and don't require offerings. They each have their individual personalities. They can grow or evolve as they live with you. As I said above, I found having them quite like spirit keeping in some ways. The EM website has lots of info on their guardians.

Don’t be scared. This island is full of noises, strange sounds and sweet melodies that make you feel good and don’t hurt anyone. Sometimes I hear a thousand twanging instruments hum at my ears, and sometimes voices that send me back to sleep even if I had just woken up—and then I dreamed of clouds opening up and dropping such riches on me that when I woke up, I cried because I wanted to dream again.
