Whenever our companions parties lose, we will have to spend time finding them, adding them to the party just to ship them off again. This is time I for one would much appreciate on doing something else, because it gets repetetive and boring. I think it would be much better to be able to ship them off externally, like sending a messenger from the party for example. When you have 2-3 parties out at all times, and they keep losing, it's just annoying to go around and fetch them all before you ship them off again in the hunt for renown and influence. Please take this into consideration!
