Started up a new campaign and was surprised to find that a party that sent a companion out on a quest (escort herd quest) and a lot of soldiers to accompany them, suddenly had a severe herd penalty. Apparently, the soldiers left their horses with the party and went on foot ? I went from no herd penalty (while having a big number of horses in the inventory) to -2.9 herd penalty. From that point on, everything moves faster than me, can't catch up and engage anything anymore and sending another companion out on a different quest will only make things worse. Also, while trying to make something out of this waste of a time and opportunity, I wanted to pick up a quest for my party that could be done while being so slow. The quest I wanted to pick up, happened to be another herd escort quest. And another surprise : couldn't accept that quest as I had already accepted one of that type. I would think a companion quest would not count in that regards. Not entirely sure if that is intended either, so just posting it here, hoping Taleworlds picks up on this.
