If you enter a new world, shouldn't you get a gift companion? You could have a choice of two. For example, if you enter marleybone. You could either try a cat smuggler or a dog pirate. Same for aquila, except with eagles.

In Marleybone, everyone got Gracie Conrad and CatBeard! I also think every class got 1 other companion, or had the option to.

In Aquila, everyone got Zeena Princess Warrior and Hercules! I also believe every class got 1 other companion or had the option to get another companion.

These are the world companions that are gifts, are they not?

Why? We already get companions through the main or side quest storylines.

Why? We get so many companions along the way already that just moving into a new world shouldn't automatically get us another. All that would do is up the number of complaints that "some companion or other doesn't get a promotion", or that "some class or other got a cooler companion than I did" or that "I have too many companions that are no good". Well, that and mean that KI would need to pull resources off doing something that might progress the story to develop and animate the new companions.

Would these companions just think "Oh, human! Gonna go join him/her!" or would there be some vaguely logical reason for them to want to join your crew? If the latter, then KI would have to develop that story as well.

Would you anticipate the folks who have already moved through that world would just magically find a new crew member in the roster?

Don't get me wrong. I love the idea of getting more companions and cheerfully buy them; I just don't see how this particular game milestone would justify it.

This post probably reads rather more snarkily than I mean it to. Sorry about that.
