This version won't mark much of a difference from the perspective of you players. It seems I had overlooked a bit of code regarding the companion management system before. Amazingly, this didn't cause problems. I nonetheless didn't feel like pushing my luck; and fixed it.
I've been sitting on it a few days, but couldn't think of anything else I wanted to do for the new beta, so I went ahead and uploaded it this morning.
As always, here's the link, for those interested.
With luck, no more omissions or bugs will present themselves; and I'll be able to start expanding the dialog to call the system a full v1.0, non-beta release.
