1)If the Sorceress, for instance, encounters a character with the Familiar follower, must she pay his fee(losing one life) to have him join her? Or does she simply take the Familiar?
2)Another question: if a character with negative followers and items dies , must the character who encounters the space with his loot then take take the negative followers and objects? I'd say, yes. Since they're "must take" cards.
3)Is the Deathstalker follower discarded once a character is killed by him, or is it left on the space with the rest of the character's loot?
