Multiple Companion recruitment!

Why aren't we allowed to go on higher ranked missions to gain multiple companions? Especially if they can make sense plot wise? I mean why would an Inuzuka have to do 3 C-Rank Pb's to gain 3 dogs? When realistically he could get them all at the same time? So I ask, why can't we go rank + to gain extra companions and not force down tedious role-playing that kills drive? We have been allowed to do this before hand, so why aren't we allowed now?
Having to do multiple high ranked PB's just to gain 1 companion at the time is soul crushing and drive killing as f*ck.

Considering that we used to be able to go on a mission for multiple, but it'd be upgraded for each one, that seems like it'd be fine. Though, for more than 2 A rankeds, it already hits the cap, so ~~~~~.

I mean... I don't see why not I guess? I'm all for expediting these sorts of processes so that you can spend more time RPing elsewhere though, so what Zang said I guess?

In my opinion it makes sense to rank it up by one each time if similar ranked companions but still make sure there's clear and defined threads dedicated to recruiting each different companion.
Like maybe all 3 B-Rank dogs are together so it's a S-Rank PB but you flow through the PB so you successfully befriend each dog separately, though it would probably cut down on total number of threads a bit since no introducing each one or whatever but it would be higher level difficulty and amount to same amount of work.

Because seriously, somethings take redonk amount of time to gain, and all these companions are going to kill my drive. FUCK Imagine someone with full companion ability slots. that's 14 PBS. Say they are A-Rank companions (B-Rank pb), that would be 42 threadS!!!!!!!!

I think we shouldn't make any hard or fast rule about it. Let's just say that if you have a good enough story and the mod feels the difficulty is adequate, you're allowed to do it. This could result in increasing the rank of the PB, adding threads or requiring storytellers.

thoughts?

Thoughts on CDF's suggestion?

Makes sense to me to do multiple PB's; why cheapen the integrity of your story by condensing it all into one? Your example of triple companion master is kind of an extreme example, and if that's the case I would say they still should need to do an individual PB; by then every hench would be an integral part of the character itself.

I'm personally not a fan of making it so easy because of those reasons.

EDIT: And no, it's not a hard lock on 42 threads for 14 A-Rank PB's. I'm sure you're aware that guidelines are not the threshold that you have to pass to legitimize the PB's rank.

Not to mention, with all those companions, you're gonna need a lot of PBs to get the stats to make those puppies really soar.

Edit: On the other hand, if you're getting 2 of the same thing (like 2 kittens from a litter), it does make sense that a single PB could handle it. But again, if you're getting a penguin, an alligator, and a camel, it kind of makes sense to have separate PBs. So I guess, I'm kinda with CDF in that it could come down to mod's discretion.
