Hello everybody, I've got another skills question for everyone to weigh in on. For as long as he's been playing, one of my gaming buddies has pining for a pet in OW. From a trained rat to a giant alien steed, he has not stopped asking. This want comes from him reading the rules entry on survival, which lists one of the uses of the skill as training animals found in the wild.
While it says that, there are quite obviously no rules for this in the standard game, nor does it really make sense from a logical perspective. I mean, you didn't see British soldiers training bears in Germany, or desert foxes in Egypt. Regardless, it's in there so he wants it.
I reckon that this particular skill was copypasta from Dark Heresy, but as I don't own the book I can't confirm. Is this particular aspect dealt with in any way in DH, or is it just a vague thing for the GM to work out? Do any of you guys have experiences with player pets/companions?
