This is true -- that would be preferred. Another questions we recently
thought of was what do animal companions do when the LightRaiders go into a
hollow tree? Envisioning a bear going through a hollow tree would be
entertaining (not saying it wouldn't work though!). But leaving animal
companions behind in the DragonLands doesn't seem right either. Presents
some interesting questions.

I've wondered of having an 'apprentice' stage after two adventures where
whatever special benefits could be tried or attempted with say success
rolls but wouldn't be automatic except in dire circumstances (like
life-threatening battle).  Just a thought or two.
