Ranger/druid companions - only summonable in wilderness areas

  • Random idea popped into my head; what if animal companions were only summonable when in wilderness areas?

  • Storyteller [DM]

    Would make considerable sense.

  • would also make more rangers/Druids conscious what they say when they shit talking and their giant animal companion doesn't show up.

    Would it be possible to make them not sumonable in non wilderness areas but Do allow them to be dismissed?

  • Playing a druid myself, I have never summoned it in town or indoor, because it was not logical. It is a responsibility that comes with the class. Is it such an issue that we need to have the DM team or builder's guild rework the companion scripts & systems?

    On the topic itself, if it is implemented:

    • Unsummoning it should work anywhere, yeah. The animal "runs away".
    • Wilderness areas do not include the roads and some of them would make sense as they are surrounded by forest. And areas like caves have their own tag so they would need to be added along with wilderness areas.

  • Admin [DM]

    This is an issue that can be self-regulated by responsible druid players.
    At this point there is no reason to add extra scripting.
    If there is an issue/incident, then an Admin can handle it on a case-by-case basis.
