p.s. dont need to check tent or bases (anyway i did it but your pp goes down so ITS GONE!
So your PP is permanently reduced even though you don't have the companion? Did the companion have Good Natured?
He means this. He had (example) 70/ 70 pp. Now he has 0 / 70 pp.
Try to understand instead of making fun of a guy who lost an NPC.
People who keeps telling him that this is not a bug, THEY ARE WRONG.
Little things like this, are the ones that newcommers dont know and make people quit because THEIR EFFORT was IN VAIN.
You can say all you want about temporary and the things that old players know, but for a newcommer...
He will never expect to do a quest and lose his companion if he dies inside the quest place.
Fix this, give this guy a new companion and edit wiki,
Or... do nothing, blame the new guy.
