Why not consider that once a companion's quest is over, he is no longer too interested in our quest. But that he remains available to offer us his services punctually.
That I am fine with, and I am fine with individuals dying because of our decisions. Heck, I was fine with BG1 and 2 Party Conflicts cause it made them feel like they had some agency. But I am mostly not fine with them decided to wipe out any that we don't have with us at that exact time. It feels stifling and honestly a bit forced.|

I'd absolutely love for companions to be able to do things. I think elsewhere I suggested that each could have their own small RPing job in camp like hunting or cooking so they feel like a group that is working together.

I want increased party size as well, 6 is the perfect amount considering the previous games and the max party size for most 5e modules. It would allow us to really have a full dnd party and experience the world with a real variety in combinations considering Subclass and Character options.
