So the companion is actually really important?
I mean, as much as me?
Is fine for me as far as other ppl are ok with that.
This is a touchy subject for a lot of people. Some believe that other players in the group should be priority over someone's companions, while others believe that if a companion can use it, they have a right to need on it.
Personally, I'm going to see how others start rolling and do the same. If people start rolling for companions, then I'll do the same for that group.
